We were up super early to make our way to the Primrose Bakery in Covent Garden, so that we could meet GBBO quarter finalist Martha Collison and decorate some cupcakes! I definitely don't mind getting up at the crack of dawn when cake is involved ;)
The Primrose Bakery is a small chain of three shops in Covent Garden, Kensington and Primrose Hill. It was founded in 2004 by Martha Swift who not only owns the three cafes, she is also the author of four cookery books and the bakery also has it's own app! The Covent Garden shop is gorgeous - if you're ever passing and want somewhere really welcoming and child friendly that sells THE BEST coffee in London - plus, of course, those divine cupcakes! - then the Primrose Bakery is for you. Just take a look at that menu!
While we were there, the kids were all treated to a cupcake icing and decorating masterclass and I have to say, I took away some top tips myself!
They had a wonderful time coming up with these creations and Daisy was particularly thrilled to meet Martha as she is a huge Great British Bake Off fan!
Both Daisy and Evie were also lucky enough to get to take home one of the new cake fashion dolls each. They come with pretend frosting to enable you to decorate their dresses, hair and shoes and are wipe clean, meaning you can come up with design after design!
The Lalaloopsy Girls Cake Fashion Dolls are aimed at children aged five and over, and are available from all good toy stores at an RRP of £19.99.
We were invited to the Primrose Bakery for this event but not asked to write this post. All thoughts are honest and my own.
