Let them eat cake ... Eric Lanlard adds a sweet treat to P&O Food and Wine theme cruises

Guests on two P&O Food and Wine theme cruises in 2013 will be able to have their cake and eat it when master pâtissier and Cake Boy legend Eric Lanlard gives them an insight into his intricate design and detail of cakes, patisserie and deserts.

Lanlard, who has previously baked for the Queen Mother, the Beckhams and Claudia Schiffer, to name a few, made a bespoke cake for P&O Cruises celebration of 175 years of heritage, which was cut by the Princess Royal on July 3.

He will give passengers an insight into some of his techniques and designs in baking, patisserie, chocolate and desserts, and will travel on two cruises in 2013:

  • A 14 night Western Mediterranean on board Azura, departing April 27, joining Atul Kochhar and Olly Smith on board.
  • A 28 night Caribbean no fly cruise on board Adonia, departing November, joining Marco Pierre White on board.
  • Lanlard said: “My passion is for making cake that tastes as good as it looks, taking my inspiration from the many parts of the world I have travelled to.

    “I have been on many cruises and love them, it’s a great way to travel and see different places in a short time. I am so excited to be working with the team at P&O Cruises, I love sharing my passion for my work, meeting new people and of course I love being on the ships, come and join me.”

    While on board, Lanlard will participate in a theatre Q&A with the cruise director, a book signing and photo session, demonstrations in the theatre and a private masterclass for 10 people (a charge will apply - on board Azura only).
