Exquisite pieces of incredibly edible art! What these guys can do with a pack of flour, a few eggs and a bit of piping is seriously impressive. We popped in after catching the show on TV a few times, and then getting into Bake Off, and were blown away by how good these things look. We ended up buying a chocolate westie in a clown's outfit for my brother in law's birthday and although there was sadness in the little dog's eyes as we sank our knife into the nape of his neck, via the pretty red ruffle, we didn't much care. It tasted good. Mary Berry would have licked her lipless lips. God knows what Hollywood would have done. Really recommend this place - you get what you pay for.
I never write reviews, but I was so stunned that such a beautiful shop could disappoint that I must add my warning. It has style, but no substance. Their cakes are beautiful to behold, but inedible. Dry, tasteless, waxy, old and outrageously expensive are the only way to describe them. Don't waste your time or money here. Our £34 cake ended up in the bin. I am very sorry I did not return to the shop with the uneaten cake and demand my money back. It was amazing to look at, but to call it a cake is shameful on their part. How they get away with this I simply do not know.
