Quite literally. Her Majesty the Queen was sent one for her birthday.
Painter-decorators turned cheesecake masters Joe Moruzzi and Brendon Parry have been making their inventive cheesecakes since January 2017, when they founded Pleesecakes. Between then and now, they’ve made and sold over 20,000 cakes to a growing list of fans, including big names like Mark Cavendish, Emma Willis and even Queen Elizabeth – who was sent a one-off McVitie’s Pleesecake for her birthday.
Think Oreo, Ferrero Rocher, Pick ‘n’ Mix, Lotus Biscuits and Reese’s Pieces –the list goes on and on – piled on top of a delicious cheesecake. Seriously, London’s Pleesecakes have gone and done something really bloody special. It only takes a quick scroll through their Instagram account to realise that.
They’ve just announced that they’ll be releasing a book in October full of 60 sweet and savoury recipes, including, amazingly, recipes for breakfasts, lunches, cakes and shakes. It’s called Pleesecakes: 60 Awesome No-Bake Cheesecake Recipes and will be available to purchase from October 18.
Pleesecake’s ‘Big Boys’, which are available to order, cost £45-65 and will serve 6 to 14 people. Alternatively, head to Selfridge’s Foodhall where you can get a ‘Mini’ for £5 or a ‘Bitesize’ for £3. (FYI, you can make special requests for vegan and gluten free cakes, too!)
