Meet the Maker
Finch & Berry is an exciting startup family business that is taking the Irish Strawberry to the next level. Kate is the creative talent in the business, displaying exceptional imagination and an impressive attention to detail.
Kate researched the individual dessert market, taking inspiration from the Parisian pastry shops. She quickly learned that taste, colour and decoration were important. In this Instagram era and using the principle that people buy with their eyes, Kate looked at the Irish marketplace and identified that nobody was using strawberries as a base for an individual dessert treat. And thus:
‘The chocolate-coated decorated strawberry dessert was born’
Upon gazing at these delicious dessert creations you’ll be bowled over by the level of care and attention that goes into each and every individual product. Vibrant pinks, purples and turquoise are mixed with top quality and conscientiously sourced chocolate to create an exceptional decadent fresh fruit dessert. Strawberries are also decorated with fine gold leaf, chocolate flowers and biscuits.
A key ingredient is the quality freshness and size of the lush Irish strawberry.
Finch & Berry also produce a delicious range of cakesicles. These boutique cakes include a cheesecake filling covered in the finest of chocolate that’s decorated in a range of vibrant colours, edible flowers and jewels. Each order contains a mix and match of cakesicles that feature different individual designs and decorations.
