2014 Best Blogs - Cupcake Recipes Australia

Every year we do a round up of the most popular blog posts from the past twelve months and feature the best of list in an article.  This is it!  Welcome to the best 2014 blog posts from Australian Cupcake recipes!

1 - Australian Hampers Fresh Bananas

As a strong structural component of a fruit basket, bananas make a great staple ingredient and add colour and textural variety to each fruit hamper. 

We love putting bananas in a hamper as they hold the whole display together and are a great eating fruit for people who have tooth/dietary restrictions. 

In Australia, bananas come under the three main types, even though there are hundreds of varieties in all types of colours and sizes.  The three main varieties are Cavendish, Lady Finger and Plaintain and these are the types you are likely to encounter at your local fruit and vegetable markets.

Cavendish – these are the typical bananas you eat everyday – these are the bananas you are most likely to encounter in a Hunter Valley Hampers Fruit Basket.
Lady Finger – a small, squat banana with a lemony flavour – makes great school lunchbox filler although can be a tad more expensive than your cavendish.

One of the most potent ideas for edible bouquets is distributing hampers for men when they are sick or ill or during a healthcare facility break. We create so many gift baskets for delivery to hospital for every event and particularly when customers are searching for a flower alternative.

4 - Fruit Hampers Info

When you want to send a Fruit Hamper or Fruit Basket, there are three things you need to keep in mind.  Making sure you are getting value for money, getting a generous fruit arrangement, and being able to rely on an experienced designer to create you fruit hamper. 

Importantly, it is not about the sheer convenience of using a local florist - there is a distinct difference between a florists' effort and the generous market fresh of a true fruit hamper specialist.

 Getting Value for Money

Fruit Hampers Info offers a simple pricing schedule of $59 small, $79 large and $99 Grande.  Most times you will be satisfied with a small, as it is generous enough for a couple of people to have a few serves of fruit over the week.

For a bigger impact, go Grande and share the benefits of larger fruits, more diversity and seasonal gems as they are available.  Be aware that a florists' idea of a fruit basket - and the small size of counted fruit pieces - like eight pieces of fruit in an edible arrangement for $80.
