Sock feels sick.. and it's all James the Hat's fault. The Sock is terribly easily influenced by other people (she went right off her favourite fuchsias after a friend suggested that they were blowsy and common). All this talk of cupcakes had permeated into the Sock's little brain so when the Bedsock suggested that after taking his visiting Mama to an art exhibition we just call into the Angel Food Bakery for a coffee it was, of course, impossible not to have a cake (or two)! Actually the Sock really fancied the Toffee Apple Cupcake and thought we had agreed to share that and a Chocolate and Orange but to her absolute horror Mama Bedsock scoffed the entire Toffee Apple one herself so we had to buy another.
Now the Sock feels a little queasy after all that sugar - but it was worth it!
The best ever cupcakes the Socks have had were in a tiny village in the Blue Mountains in Australia. The village only had two shops and one of those was a dedicated cupcake one which seems perfectly sensible. Other than that the Sock, like James, remembers with great fondness the Lyon's lemon, orange and chocolate cupcakes of her youth although for us they were part of family picnic lunches not midnight munchies.
PS. The picture is of the Angel Food Bakery in Brighton and that enormous cupcake in the foreground can be made to order.
