Years ago, we lived in a house on a little street with a typical corner shop and post office which eventually closed down. It remained empty for quite a long time. We moved on to another house but each time I passed by that empty shop I thought what a nice little place it could be and imagined how lovely it would be to open "vintage style" corner shop. Some time later as I was going by, I saw that someone had taken over the shop and was doing just that, providing a corner shop with a difference. The lady who runs the shop has given it quite a makeover and has foods beautifully displayed.
She sells some of the basics which the people on the street would need on a regular basis but she also sells an amazing ecclectic variety of specialty and gourmet foods.
I have often seen beautiful cakes displayed in the window but a few weeks ago I spotted one of the most wonderful cakes I have ever seen. I said to Paul, "stop the car, pull over, I must see that cake!" but each time, we have been on our way to pick up our little girl from school and just didnt have the time to stop. Today though, we went a little early and stopped by the shop. Of course I had my camera and I took some photos to share with you. The cakes are made upstairs from the main shop by The utterly sexy cafe .
All the cakes were superb but it is the birdcage cake that really caught my eye. The beautiful colours, the roses and Wisteria styled flowers, the delicate bars of the cage and the beautiful bird, what a wonderful creation don't you think?
