Mohair and Cake

On our travels recently, husband and I found a gorgeous cake shop that specialises in hand made egg free fresh cream cakes and it was our second visit there this afternoon.

After much deliberation of what to choose, we ate in and had a slice of homemade pizza, tea and a slice of delicious cake. As you can see, there are many to choose from and for only £1.40 each, you could easily have more than one in one sitting, although I didn't!!


I had black forest gateau and husband had pistachio-yummy indeed!! I now need to work my way through all the other flavours available-what a task, huh!!


They also do big cakes, ideal for birthdays and special occasions.

I wore my new vintage French hairy mohair jacket, which I thrifted last weekend-its so oversized and is lined like a jacket but is very lightweight and incredibly warm, like a cardigan. I think it makes a nice change from all the fur which I've been channelling this winter so far.


The jacket was from the All Aboard charity shop-its not something I would normally go for, but I wanted something different for winter. I love the vibrant colours and also how hairy it is too!!


I'm wearing it with my Levi skinny jeans, wool Coast polo neck jumper and black Dune boots, all thrifted from various charity shops.

Oh and my Chanel bag got an outing too, although you can't really see it that well!!

UPDATED TO ADD-The cake shop is Cakes & Bakes-They have branches in East Ham (East London) and Barkingside High Street, Essex (on the Central Line)

Please tell where that cake shop is located! You look terrific in that coat. But then you are so slim. I would look like a hairy mammouth. A Scottish hairy mammouth - haha! ( Mr EM is Scottish and partial to tartan and plaids.)

The jacket is great & looks well teamed with your slim jeans, boots, etc.

What a lovely cake shop you visit! (It's probably a GOOD thing I don't have one anywhere NEAR our house!)

Dear Sharon, you look stunning as always. Those cakes look gorgeous! Where's the shop?

I went into John Lewis recently and had the hugest piece of black forest gateau which had about four inches of cream in the middle and proper chocolate on top. It was the best one I'd ever had. Have a good Sunday xx

Danz said...

As long as you didn't find mohair IN your cake. That's what I feared from the title!
