The Vintage Cake House, Farnham – Old Fashioned Loveliness
Sunday July 22 2012
My “postcards” from the delightful The Vintage Cake House: No. 5 Downing Street Farnham, GU9 7PB. Phone: 07891 034382
Kismet. It’s a wonderful thing. Just as I was planning a visit to the Squires shop in Farnham, I saw a post from Nicola (Fairy Cakes & Faces) about a charming vintage tea shop she found in – you guessed it! – Farnham! Well, it didn’t take much effort to convince my bake date, Fiso, to come with me to check it out. Did you say CAKE!? Admittedly, we were walking and chatting (& chatting!) so we somehow got lost on Farnham High Street – LOL! After walking a few unnecessary miles, we finally found The Vintage Cake House, and it was so worth it!
They serve proper tea in proper china, whimsically, vintage-ly-mis-matched! And the scrumptious delights are also a treat for the eyes and taste-buds. This coffee-walnut cake was amazeballs! Fiso and I were literally fighting over it.
We also got to meet and chat with the lovely owner, that’s Natalie below in front of her shop, which features some of the gorgeous wedding cakes she creates.
You can visit The Vintage Cake Shop virtually at: http://www.thevintagecakehouse.co.uk/vintage-weddingcakes.html, but I do hope you visit the actual shop ’cause you might see me and/or Fiso there again
