Cakey Perry afternoon tea

Katy Perry cupcakeMy chums and I had high hopes for the recent Cakey Perry afternoon tea and we weren’t disappointed. Created by Miss Cakehead, whose previous projects include the Cakes for Japan pop-up shop, the world’s first 18+ cake shop and the Will & Cake royal wedding pop-up shop, the event ran over three days at Prangsta in SE London and was inspired by Katy Perry’s California Gurls video.

First up, Miss Cakehead herself made sure that we had plenty of refreshments in the form of toffee-flavoured vodka topped up with ginger beer (a surprisingly moreish concoction), before presenting us with a round of scones decorated with green glace cherries, complete with clotted cream and jam.

Phase one complete, we moved onto cupcake-stuffed strawberries before sampling the mini Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg cupcakes. After a short rest we moved onto heart-shaped biscuits with candy floss before completing our sugary feast with a massive slab of awesome rainbow cake from Leshie Loves Cake.

We couldn’t finish it all, so we ended up taking the rest away with us, along with some rainbow-cake push pops and a doughnut-shaped cake pop from Molly Bakes.

All of the food was fantastic (with my personal favourite being the rainbow cake), and the venue’s decorations – including a Love Heart sweet encrusted table and exquisitely painted biscuits from Nevie-Pie cakes – were also superb.

I probably should have snapped more pictures and taken the time to use the correct settings rather than the autofocus, but frankly, I was far too busy quaffing vodka and snaffling cakes. Our sugar-heavy afternoon was rounded off neatly with a sharpener in the boozer. Special praise goes to Smithy for requesting a wine list in the Hobgoblin pub. Strangely, the barman found this somewhat amusing.
