Passed this place several times recently while out on errands and noticed the tooth-tinglingly sweet wares through the open doorway. The ultra bright colours of the icings initially put me off, but there always seem to be people buzzing around, so yesterday I decided to give it a go.

Ugh and totally not worth the calories. I tried the banana and toffee cupcake, which turned out to be a dry, dense and vaguely banana-y muffin with a very hard shell of food dye-laden icing and a couple of desultory pieces of chewing gum stuck to the top. No taste of toffee discernible whatsoever. Hopefully this will save someone else from disappointment.
