Cakey Perry afternoon teaCakey Perry is an afternoon tea that’s set to tickle the taste buds of London from 29 to 31 July 2011 and is inspired by Katy Perry’s California Gurls video.

Described as “a high tea to melt your popsicle”, Cakey Perry is the brainchild of curator of cakes and chaos, Miss Cakehead, whose previous projects include the Cakes for Japan pop-up shop and the world’s first 18+ cake shop. The kitsch menu will include Molly Bakes‘ Perry Pops, Gummi Bear martinis and Edd Kimber‘s raspberry and chocolate macarons. You’ll also be able to help yourself to a mini candyland featuring peppermint patties, candy canes and flying meringues.

Best Valentine’s cakes in London

Best Valentine's cakes in LondonIt’s nearly Valentine’s Day and that means more heart-shaped crap in the shops that any other time of year. Unless you’ve got the kind of partner who’s willing to splash out for a romantic trinket from Tiffany’s, then chances are you’ll be getting the textbook dozen roses or maybe a stuffed monkey toy proffering a heart emblazoned with a message like “You’re the one for me!”. Ahhhh, how sweet.

If you want something more practical, try dropping some hints for something you actually want – and what better gift than some baked goods. At least that way, you can get some enjoyment out of them and then move on to hemorrhaging cash on the next Hallmark day. Read on for some of the best cakes in London Town this Valentine’s Day…

Konditor and Cook
With six braches dotted around London, Konditor & Cook is offering plenty of special goodies for Valentine’s Day including a burning heart cake and anti-Valentine’s ‘Dodgy Jammers’, as well as its trademark Magic Cakes.
