But the real rockstars of this show are the cakes!
The cakes are all named after songs and bands from the best of British punk.
So you have the ‘God Save the Queen – The Sex Pistols’ cake, a slice of super soft and moist red, blue and white Battenburg, with a sweet marzipan icing crown.
Then there’s ‘Shut-Up – The Stranglers’, a pair of red lips with a silver zip, made of white chocolate and stuffed with frozen strawberry and basil parfait. This was one of my favourites, but it’s veryyyy sweet.
The silver studded chocolate Swiss Roll is called ‘Going Round in Circles – Alternative TV’. It’s super dark, super chocolatey and really, really good. I couldn’t finish my slice because it’s so rich, but Vicky absolutely loved it.
And finally, I give you the Mohican-inspired cake: ‘Sigue Sigue Sputnik – 21st Century Boy’. Soft and jelly-like, filled with mousse and, again, incredddddibly sweet.
This is very much a sweet person’s afternoon tea. If you’re more of a savoury girl (or guy!) then this is maybe not one for you!
So final thoughts: the savoury treats need a bit of work. Honestly, the sandwiches were bland and forgettable.
BUT. The cakes are insane. Insaaaane.
Favourites: the parfait lips, the cocktails and (of course) the scones. If I ever find scones that are better than these, I’ll be sure to let you know!
