The History of The Founders
Michael joined the team in January 2022 with his trademark award-winning style, focusing on delicate yet vibrant cake designs. This includes the signature Dorchester Rose, a dazzling cake to match the signature rose and jasmine cream. It features compressed pear and coconut crunch, with a citrus and orange Blossom Pavlova in addition to yuzu and bergamot meringue, citrus compote, orange blossom cream and confit citrus.
On the other hand, Phillip has been responsible for the hotel’s breath-taking floral arrangements since 2010 and was behind the creation of the hotel’s signature rose variety, The Dorchester Rose. His involvement in Cake & Flowers is sure to add a touch of beauty in the packaging to elevate every tantalising cake.
Perfectly situated in the heart of London since 1931, The Dorchester stands tall in Mayfair with Hyde Park on its doorstep. The hotel opened its doors to Cake & Flowers on 23 March and it will almost certainly elevate the experience of the charming property. Find out more at the Official The Dorchester Website.
