Great Cake Places

March 14, 2013

Being the sharp-eyed,media-savvy, hip to the trend kind of readers you are, I suspect you may have noticed that baking has become somewhat fashionable. Given that Leicestershire and Rutland is already home to Britain’s Best Bakery in the shape of Hambleton, I thought I’d respond to a request for help with nominations for Britain’s “Great Cake Places”.   To go with a forthcoming guidebook, publishers Allegra are looking for recommendations of places with great cake and patisserie, espcially where there’s an “enchanting or intriguing” location.

If you’ve got somewhere you want to big up, go to www.greatcakeplaces.com and do their survey. You can also engage in alll that twitter and facebook malarky to chat with others. Having a quick think, places I’ve had good cake recently include – Miss B’s in Melton Mowbray, Yesim on Narborough Road (heavenly baklava), Dominic’s at David North in Rothley, Fingerprints on Queen’s Rd, Johanna’s in Oakham, Wistow Mediterranean deli (more baklava – there’s a theme emerging here), Elizabeth’s patisserie (at various farmer’s markets). I’m sure there a few good candidates I’ve missed …

 

mmmm, bak-la-va...
