It is time for small businesses to shine!
One of my favourite nibbles whilst sipping on coffee or treating myself to a deserved snack has to either be a cupcake or macaron. Once I came across this gorgeous macaron and cake boutique in Leicester, I fell in love.
Baker St Cakes is a place you should visit if you ever find yourself in Leicester. With a clean interior, you can find delicious treats here that are all handmade. After my first visit, I met the guy behind the masterpiece when collecting a cake previously ordered. He was ever so kind to talk me through the way he preps and creates his macarons. The cafe is a first-come-first-serve situation, so get yourself there as soon as they open on a Thursday.
The baker was ever so kind to provide a macaron for free to taste and of course, I opted for the caramel flavour macaron. Hands down one of the best I have tried in a while. He has perfected the right level of crunch to softness whilst not over-powering at all.
Of course, I had to follow up with a purchase of a cupcake. Especially with them being on display near the counter. Their best quality definitely has to be how light and fluffy their cupcakes are. I could overload on these cupcakes without realising how much I have actually eaten.
Baker St Cakes’ interior is perfect for those Instagram shots with bright lighting coming through the window. Just make sure you arrive during daylight, I made the mistake of coming quite late. Make sure to grab one of their marble bags if, in stock, they really have done their market research into what looks picturesque. They also take orders for cakes so just make sure to follow them on their Instagram linked below.
The only downside to this boutique is that they are a small business. I would love if they were able to have a branch closer to home in London because I can’t access them whenever! I am all for supporting small businesses so I will be making a trip soon. The prices are affordable which makes you want to buy more and more as their cakes are irresistible. You have to try it to get what I mean, honestly.
