Our Lou’s favourite cake!
Lou is our fabulous deputy Manager. You’re likely to see her buzzing around the tearoom keeping everyone happy, always with a smile on her face!
Lou, which is your favourite cake?
It’s close between our Carrot & Orange cupcake and the Lemon Meringue cupcake…I will say Lemon Meringue! It’s very light and the homemade lemon curd in the middle is delicious. The soft whipped Italian meringue on the top is also to die for! It makes the perfect treat for Afternoon tea, a picnic or even a cosy night in. The Lemon Meringue cupcake is lovely served with Rose Lemonade, which is made here in the bakery or a nice Chester blend tea.
Is there any other foods you like to accompany it?
Some scones! 🙂
A bit more about our Lemon Meringue Cupcake
Our Lemon Meringue Cupcake is one of our most popular cakes and is served in the tearoom most days. Unusually the topping of this cupcake is not buttercream, but as the name would suggest it is Italian Meringue instead. This meringue is soft and fluffy. Inside the vanilla sponge, you will find a centre of homemade lemon curd. It’s made here in the bakery from fresh lemons.
