Yesterday was my birthday and for a girly treat Mr B treated myself and our lovely daughter Amber to some birthday cake. This let me tell you was both a visual and gourmet treat. As a gluten allergy sufferer, much to the amusement of my friends, who refer to me as having special needs, it’s not often you get to go out to a tea room and partake in the treats on offer, unless there are meringues on the menu. The Sweet tooth cupcakery in Chorlton, Manchester makes the most delicous cupcakes and specialises in vegan, vegaterian and gluten free cakes, with no compromise on taste at all. The small cafe is a wonderful retro experience with mis- matched china plates and cups, cakes stands and kitsch diner style furniture, it is one of the lovliest cafes I have been in and as a professional tea drinker, I do not say this lightly! The cakes are presented in a vintage shop fitting cabinet and have names such as Jonny Cash, Blondie and Kylie. If you can’t get to Chorlton, they also have another cafe in the Northern Quarter of Manchester.
