Things 2 Get 4m in London: Candy Cakes Covent Garden

Tucked away in the heart of Covent Garden there is a staircase… taking the steps down to the lower level you will find your self in an open basement area dotted with coffee shops and restaurants…

Scattered every where are outdoorsy tables and in the corner there is always someone playing something… be it the guitar or a violin or maybe just someone on stilts playing… it is in this area where the lovely Candy Cakes Shop resides…

Back in January 2009 i had a small post about the Candy Cakes… i felt i hadn’t done it justice then so i am deleting the old one and posting a new one with better pictures… One of my favorite stops in the heart of London… i love every thing about this quirky tiny place…

The window display is what captures your attention first. Cupcakes have been an international craze for quite some time now… but those cupcakes demand your attention and capture it immediately for their frosting is so smooth and colorful and if you are a person who loves color like i am you will be glued to the window display…

You go inside… it is cave like but painted in bright green… every thing screams funky! I would imagine finding a shop like this in Tokyo if i ever visit! The aroma of the cakes is in the air… and you wait in line, entertained by the lovely items you see hanging all around…

When it’s finally your turn… you don’t know what to choose! You cannot eat all the flavors at once of course… so what will it be?! The double chocolate?!

Maybe? How about the banana and toffee?!

This luscious berry one?! Mmmmm

What to take what to take?!

The decision is even harder now… for other baked goods are just as scrumptious! Will stick to Candy Cakes though…

Their drinks are not bad either… this is the cappuccino i ordered in the last post…

and this is my absolute favorite… the Blueberry Candy Cake… ❤

Oh the tables are funky and nice too…

We decided to take a couple of Candy Cakes for takeaway… we had some shops to tend to that lovely day…

Yet we couldn’t resist taking a big box of Candy Cakes for my family… especially given that my baby sister was BBMing me non stop about them…

The box was bought on the day before we went back home… was backed into our hand luggage… and reached q8 fresh, safe, and sound! We had fun eating them at home ❤

If you pass by Covent Garden… take 5 minutes to grab your self a Candy Cake… i recommend the Blueberry one… Butootee recoomend the double chocolate one… I will write another post about another place in London that sells the same Candy Cakes insha2 Allah tomorrow 😀

      haw haw haw haw!

      Shloon y3ni you never visited Covent Garden!?

      Malah da3ee bus abdan… by foot… from Leicester square khal Haagen Dazs 3la your left o imsh seeda… cross the street and you will see a pret on your right o a spaghetti house on ur left and a group of intersections… cross to the other side of the street but choose the left most straight pathway rather than the right one (if u choose the right u will find a candy shop that sells amazing imported funky chocolates and Carluccio’s and paul)…

      anyways just walk 3 more minutes… Covent Garden station will be on your right, take a right here o temasha in Covent garden… wayed wanasa! Have lunch in one of the open restaurants while watching the people o then shop a little… afterwards grab a candy cake

      You can go by tube… but Covent Garden station is the worst station in the Underground tube… too crowded o access is by a very crowded lift only…

      I find their cupcakes really good… though it more a muffin that a cupcake o it’s huge… especially if they were fresh from the over 🙂
