Iconic Yorkshire stately home Castle Howard has partnered with popular vegan baker, writer, and Great British Bake-Off star Freya Cox, to create three seasonal cakes celebrating plant-based produce.
Freya is collaborating with Castle Howard’s Head Chef, Nathan Richardson-Kelly, on three tasty treats across the year. The first cake is a delicious miniature Black Forest Gateau, made from chocolate cake, a kirsch buttercream, and cherry jam with a quintessential cherry on top.

Luke Butler, Head of Food and Beverage at Castle Howard, said: ‘Here at Castle Howard we love to celebrate delicious, sustainable, local produce, and we’re absolutely delighted to be working with Freya to expand our vegan offering. The mini–Black Forest Gateau is a lovely indulgent treat for January, and we’re working behind the scenes on our Spring
and Autumn cakes which we’ll announce later in the year.’

Freya said: ‘It’s been absolutely brilliant to collaborate with the team at Castle Howard. I’m so excited for people to try a beautiful cake in a beautiful place that means a lot to me and my family. The cake is delicious, and best of all, it’s vegan!’

The mini-Black Forest Gateau is available to purchase in Castle Howard’s Coffee Shop and Courtyard
Café from January 17th, 2023.
