Well I'm back from my hols in Barcelona. it was sunny, hot and most relaxing. A few days home now and I'm beginning to get used to NOT having a glass of Cava at lunchtime...
Anyway, back to work and jolly happy I am about it too. I did visit a couple of places in Barcelona for cakes as a bit of research, you know. Of course none were a wonderful as Cushion & Cake but I did love my visits to see how other people do the tearoom thing.
The cakes here at Art i sa near Placa Reial were super. Proper home baking with a great selection of teas too. I had cake for breakfast here one morning. A great way to start the day I say!
Next up was Barcelona's very on C&C, Cup & Cake. Two friends separately had recommended I visit this little place. It was small and cute, their specialty was cupcakes so I found myself once again breaking my fast with cakes although this time I stuffed a lovely big croissant into my gob before the yummy red velvet cup cake.
Both places had a really lovely vibe and it was nice to see the tea and cake culture in other countries and be inspired. No worries that I'd relocate t Barcelona though! In 34 degrees heat everyday it would play havoc with my butter cream :-)
