Ignoring ants ants and more ants at Baker and Cook (which the management subsequently explained that “whilst we have regular pest control at our premises, it seems that this new bout of ants was overlooked by our staff”), BFF and I self-congratulated ourselves that the three cakes we chose (after much deliberation) are good!
Orange almond cake is a natural favourite of mine, zesty and light despite the use of almond meal; lemon tart is one of their bestsellers, easy to concur since it’s refreshing and not mouth-puckeringly sour at all; we scrapped off the too-sweet sugary icing on the carrot cake and what’s left is a moist and soft body, a nice change from the rustic dense versions which I usually love.
