These are actually from August, but I forgot about them! That shows you how on the ball I am at the moment.

Drink, Shop & Do

One of the amazing people I am blessed to call my friends, Henna, took me on a tea and cake date as part of my birthday present. We chose Drink, Shop & Do as I love it there and Henna had never been. I can barely remember what cake I had as I basically inhaled it (something with caramel?), and Henna had a coconutty concoction that was really, really good. We also indulged in a teacup full of sherbet but hardly made a dent in it because, well, it was an entire teacup full of sherbet. Still, I do love it at Drink, Shop & Do. I’ve taken a few people there in the year and a half since I was introduced to it. I’ve also been to Early Doors Disco in their downstairs bar a few times as a couple of dear friends DJ there. Check it out! It’s pretty cool.

Look where Bethany and I went today! I’d heard a few whispers about Issy’s Milky Way so we decided to check it out. It’s adorable. There are cupcakes and other sweet things, milkshakes and coke floats, toasties and a lovely waiter with a very tall quiff. We each got a milkshake and Bethany got an Elvis cupcake and we marvelled at the various kitsch wares for sale around us.



Season’s Eatings

I haven’t really baked anything for a good while! Sam has very kindly had me to stay this week so I figured it was a prime opportunity to whip up some cupcakes! And they even survived the train up. These are “candy-cane” cupcakes – vanilla with swirled peppermint frosting from the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days book!



Chill and be still (and always eat ice cream)

You saw Bethany’s post over at The Arched Eyebrow about our Soho date last week, so here’s mine. We went for ice cream at Scoop in Covent Garden and generally had a pleasant and rambly afternoon. If you enjoy Bethany’s blog (and I’m sure you do because it’s REALLY GOOD), please vote for her to win a Cosmo Blog Award¬†HERE¬†under the ‘Student Blog’ category, and make sure there’s a little green tick next to ‘The Arched Eyebrow’.



Bright On

My friends Henna and Andrew and I went to Brighton for the day. It started off rainy and grey but then brightened up into a fine afternoon! The ice cream sundaes were from Scoop & Crumb, an ice cream cafe on East Street – absolute perfection.



What we ate (or thought about eating)

We ate so much in Berlin. So much. It was glorious, a gastronomical festival. We had ice cream every day (no photos, too busy eating it) and literally satisfied every hungry whim we had. Amazing.
