Kaffeine

Stepping off Oxford Street into Fitzrovia is like stepping off a packed tube train in rush hour – you immediately feel relieved. Far less busy, with virtually no lingering tourists, Fitzrovia is fast turning into a foodies paradise. It is also home to one of my favourite London cafes, Kaffeine.

My mum bakes cakes

She bakes for any occasion – from cupcakes to cake pops, birthday and wedding cakes in small to large quantities.
