Candy Cakes

First of all, I'm terribly sorry for the delay but I honestly suck at blogging. I'm not good at keeping up with this... but I'll do my best, so that you can have an extensive guide of London. I hope you had a fabulous, or should I say tremendous, time over Christmas and that January was a good month for you.

Now let's talk about this colorful store. In spite of the color combination including pastel green (let me say I -hate- pastel colors) that somewhat reminds me of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada (not very fond of her either), this place is worth checking out. And since there's more than one in London, you have no excuse.

Candy Cakes opened in 2006 with the intention of making unique and innovative cakes and the already mentioned cupcakes. And maybe they taste like your regular cupcake, but there are so many different colors that it definitely catches your eye. I must admit I still haven't tasted these cupcakes because I've never been really into turquoise cakes, but I did have a Nutella milkshake and it was awesome. Seriously. Usually when you find Nutella ice-creams or milkshakes they just taste like chocolate, but this one was amazing.

The shop you can see in these pictures also has a little terrasse (did I just make up that word?) and is in Monmouth Street, in Covent Garden, near the Leicester Square station.

You can find more information on their website, which I linked above, and as far as the prices are concerned... well, this is London we're talking about.

And in the next entry (which will hopefully be up before 2014) I'll talk about the Natural History Museum and post a thousand pictures, give or take. Peace out.


  1. Glad you're back! Not sure about the blue cakes, but the nutella milkshake sounds amazing.

  2. I think I'm going to use the word "terasse" as much as I can in my Englishing from now on.

    (P.S.: mail coming soon, I am so swamped with cupcake work it's unbelievable!)
    (P.P.S.: yes, BEST CAT EVER!)
