Treacle started off as a cake shop, quickly expanding to cater for those looking to uphold the traditions of the great British teatime by selling a range of retro paraphernalia, such as cake stands, tea pots and baking equipment (including Kitchen Aid mixers and blenders and a stylish selection of tea towels and hand-knitted tea cosies). There’s an impressive stock of original china tea sets from the British post-war era (with brands such as Midwinter and Meakin often featuring), mixed alongside some innovative contemporary brands, such as Yoyo Ceramics and Donna Wilson. The cupcakes should help to appease any market crowd-provoked stress.
