HLC Turns 8 this August! | The Birthday Collection

On the 11th August, HLC turns a whopping 8 years old! It’s amazing to see how we have evolved over the years; from the humble beginnings of a kitchen in Manchester, to a pop-up shop, to a thriving bakery nestled in Spinningfields and busy concession in Selfridges Trafford Centre. With this success in mind, we won’t just be limiting our celebrations to the one day!

We are having a birthday bonanza and it’s all about Ice Cream! To kick things off, our Birthday Collection launches on August 1st and will run for the entire month. Let’s take a look at what our talented bakers have been working on:

Gourmet Ice Cream Cupcake


A rich, chocolate sponge filled with ganache and piped with sweet raspberry buttercream, which has been dipped in luxuriously melted milk chocolate and topped with all of your favourite ice cream decorations!

MCR Mint Choc Chip Layer Cake


The chocolate sponge is slathered with deliciously cool mint buttercream and decorated with a dark chocolate drip, a choc chip crush and minty treats!

Neapolitan Layer Cake



Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla sponge layers with the buttercream to match! Each slice looks like it could have come straight out of the ice cream van, with rainbow sprinkles, a white chocolate drip, cherries and mini wafers!

Keep your eyes peeled for our fun ice cream-themed display cakes, which may just give you the cakespiration you need for an upcoming birthday. We will also have colourful ice cream cake pops available at both stores!


Competitions and offers

For your chance to WIN a birthday cake, make sure you are following us across all of our social media platforms! The competition will be running from August 1st.

We will be offering 8% off for all our followers at our Spinningfields store.

You can also come and get a scoop of FREE ice cream from our shop on our birthday (Saturday 11th August)!


Our blog is going to be absolutely buzzing this month, so be sure to check back regularly for updates, recipes, interviews and much, much more!
