Marvellous Muffins


I recently started working in Carnaby Street, and while it isn’t fantastic for sandwiches, today I came across a little bakery shop – Candy Cakes. With pastries, macaroons and delightful cakes aplenty – what caught my eye and drew me into the shop were these rather garish concoctions. At a whopping £2.60 each, they are a bit too expensive for everyday eating. Good for special treats or gifts to friends. You will either love this gaudy icing or hate it- the licorice allsorts and sweeties on top are a nice touch. The yellow one has a lovely lemony base, but the chocolate one is a bit dry – also too big really for comfortable bites, try unhinging your jaw. The result, I don’t think I’d be buying them again – other than the colourful icing, they are nothing special really. The muffins come in a variety of colours and sweet toppings, pink, blue, green etc. Also Candy Cakes have a loyalty card, buy nine cakes and get the tenth free. I’ll be heading back for some of those delicious looking macaroons.

    They had some amazingly garish other colours, pink, bright blue, red – crazy place. I guess I still prefer cupcakes, nicer buttercream icing.
