If you want a showstopper for any special occasion (including weddings), the clear choice is arty patissier Anges de Sucre, which now has its own boutique in North Acton in addition to supplying Selfridges and other retail outlets. Their cakes are insanely detailed and decorated with everything from lacy Swiss meringue buttercream and white chocolate pearls to ombré-glazed buttermilk doughnuts. Bizarre creations such as the vegan ’pig in a unicorn wig’ or ‘gaga rainbow’ cake are guaranteed to bring the house down. Don’t miss the macarons and marshmallows in all colours, designs and flavours. or drop by for a hot chocolate or a cup of coffee before you shop (the beans are specially roasted in Paris).
