A nice rainy day and a visit to Violet Cakes


Outtake – final Violet Cakes photos at Lovely Food

Ah, I love waking up at 6.30am on a Sunday and coming downstairs with Astrid. Even better this morning it was raining, which meant we didn’t have to go out walking – we could all stay inside and I could secretly get some work done editing photos. Lots of cups of tea later and I’d had enough so off we went out for a lazy Sunday drive – off in the usual East London direction with the promise of a visit to Whole Foods in Stoke Newington.

We got waylaid of course, trying out the coffee from Long White Cloud in Hackney Road. They sell Kiwi Marmite! That made me a happy lady indeed. As did the oat milk latte. Although I think I prefer soy.

Then off to the lovely Violet Cakes in East London – my favourite London cake shop.
Cupcakes for the girls and cupcakes for my camera.

We got home, me small box of cakes in hand. I set about rearranging my office and now et voila I have my studio table in a new spot with good light. A homeless sewing machine but there are worse things right. Which might include a slightly burnt cake (I burnt it) that just will not be photographed!

    I only wish I could have coming a long on your weekend ride about, sounds lovely! The cake looks like one a friend of mine makes with lavendar and, I think, Lemon. Off to visit Violet Cakes!
