Daisy Cakes Bakes Shop
Deep down dark little Turnpin Lane, leading into Greenwich Market, which I will talk about in depth on another occasion,lies a dinky little pastel-pretty shop called Daisy Cakes Bake Shop.
It’s tiny – so it’s more the public face of a bespoke cake making service, but it does sell the odd gorgeous cupcake and cakey-slice as well as sugar roses for your own creations and a limited selection of decorating equipment. Cute Cath Kidston-esque cake stands and examples of the kind of cake that you can order for your special occasion line the window, as well as little sugar figures of brides and groomse – either standing or sitting with their legs hanging off the side of the top tier of your wedding cake. All in all, it’s very pink indeed.
According to the website they bake everything on the premises. All I can say is that that shop must be like the Tardis out the back – or perhaps they’re employing Ooompa-Loompas. They try to source locally, organically and ethically which is never a bad thing.
Don’t expect this all to come in cheap – but you’re paying for a unique service here, so it seems that you’re paying for quality and individuality. I have never eaten a Daisy-baked cake – I would appreciate any comments from people who have.
