Summer Sunshine & The 4 Chocolate Variety

Summer Sunshine & The 4 Chocolate Variety

Summer Sun Festive Table

Holidays are around the corner, think hot sunny days spent lazing by the pool or the beach, adventuring outdoors in our beautiful country, picnicking with friends in the park under a shady tree or enjoying a meal with the family in the garden - we absolutely love this time of year! We also looove getting creative so we have put together some inventive ideas for you to celebrate the festive season in style. Now is the one time of year when you have carte blanche to indulge in spoiling your family and friends, treating them to the sweet life, with a little bit of help from Château Gâteaux

As the ultimate hostess, you will want to dazzle your guests with your table setting, and we have suggestions for you right here and now. To create a fresh and vibrant centrepiece, you need to bring some outdoors indoors. Green foliage is the simple answer, but make sure that what you pick from your garden or choose from the flower shop is greenery that can survive for a time without water. The last thing you want are wilted leaves greeting your guests – no, no, no. So, here are plants you can use which will do the job perfectly: Rosemary (so versatile and smells divine); Ruscus (Butcher’s Broom – has an interesting little spike in the middle of the leaf); Leucadendron (Cone Bush, which is part of the Protea family); Asparagus Fern; Pine branches; Palm leaves; Oak branches (but not the tender leafed variety – leathery leaves are best); Succulent Rock Roses would look lovely too.  TOP TIP - most long-lasting greenery have woody or hardy stems and tough leaves.

Your exciting choice of a bold print table runner or length of fabric will set the scene for your table.  Think Beautiful Botanical, Geometric, Tropical, African, Harlequin – the choice is endless.  Place your runner over a plain white cloth, create a wreath of your chosen foliage in the centre of the table and decorate with cut and whole citrus fruit (oranges, lemons, grapefruit, limes) and team them up with shiny baubles to match your colour scheme.  We can imagine just how stunning your table is beginning to look.



You are almost there. Lay your beautiful place settings around the table together with the main event, our 4 Chocolate Variety. Four decadent different chocolate cakes in one is guaranteed to please everyone and is the perfect way to entertain those nearest and dearest to you.

Who will pick Chocolate Nostalgia with its layers of rich chocolate flavoured mousse, topped with biscuit crumble and dark chocolate ganache – hubby maybe? Surely Gran would enjoy a slice of our Mousse au Chocolat, a smooth and velvety dark chocolate mousse cake with a creamy white chocolate centre, finished with a rich dark cocoa ganache. Everyone will go for our B-1 Cake, a rich, dark and moist chocolate cake coated in our luxurious B-1 sauce. And the kids, well, they love anything chocolate, but maybe their favourite will be our scrumptious Rococo Chocolate Cake – layers of choc chip cookie pieces, whirls of cocoa ganache and moist chocolate cake – heaven on a plate.

Remember to order your 4 Chocolate Variety pack in good time (twelve generous slices of chocoliciousness in the selection) as you can keep it safely and freshly frozen, in its original packaging, in your freezer until the night before laying your festive table. Follow defrosting directions on the product label, so your slices are perfectly ready when your guests arrive.

We hope your take on our Summer Sun festive table will thrill and delight the whole family. Château Gâteaux, your helping-hand this summer season.
