If you want a showstopper for any special occasion (including weddings), the clear choice is arty patissier Anges de Sucre, who now have their 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’, the two-tiered ‘mermaid skirt’ or ‘gaga rainbow’ cake are guaranteed to bring the house down. Also come to Anges for their 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).
