Cake Cake Cake...



Unless you've been completely walking around your city with your eyes shut you would have realised that dessert shops are popping up everywhere and by everywhere I mean everywhere. Town centres, villages, shopping centres, high streets... everywhere!!

Whether you're one scoop or two, a strawberry and white chocolate crepe, an Oreo waffle or peanut butter cup shake, the dessert shop phenomenon is taking over and I quite like it.

After a 5am wake up call and a full shift at work (on a Sunday may I add) the girls and I planned for dessert, to simply get us through our Sunday and well.....'cause we love cake. 

And then there was Eis Cafe - Small Heath, Birmingham. 







Eis Cafe is owned by four Spanish brothers who had dreams of owning an ice cream parlour and coffee shop when they were younger. Two of the brothers moved away to Germany for a while before all of them made their move to the UK.
It was then that Eis was born...The guys wanted to bring something new to the cafe phenomenon and with no experience they still knew that they wanted to be innovative and knowledgeable in all aspects of desserts and ice cream.

What we ate..


I had a peanut butter Pizookie ( pizza cookie which is cookie dough with toppings ) with Ferrero Rocher ice cream and M&Ms , the cookie dough was to die for however, my eyes were much bigger than my belly. My friend Kayleigh had a smores Pizookie, with a red velvet ice cream while Tammy had one of the famous Loco shakes,the Red Velvet loco shake to be exact. The shake looked amazing and was made up of strawberry pavlova, red velvet crumble cake and strawberry marshmallows. 





If you're ever in Birmingham or fancy the trip to Small Heath, Eis Cafe is a must! Infact the guys will be branching out in Dusseldorf in 2018, soon to be taking over Europe if they have their way.

Taste At Rofuto, Birmingham - Afternoon Tea

If you're anything like my friends and I, we'll pretty much jump at every opportunity to go for afternoon tea. I don't know whether its the social aspect, the never ending pots of tea or the lashings and lashings of clotted cream that get us over excited. I personally enjoy the whole experience after all, who doesn't love a few hours with their favourite girls? A few hours spent ideally in a new venue with an amazing variety of delicious desserts and if we're lucky, Bottomless Prosecco, which has helped to turn many afternoon teas into so much more.

Imagine my delight in opening an email from East Village inviting me to join some wonderful Birmingham Bloggers at Rofuto, to experience their new Afternoon Tea Menu. Having recently visited Rofuto to celebrate their birthday, I literally couldn't wait to experience this!

Upon arrival we were greeted by the wonderful ladies from East Village along with a glass of Prosecco, before taking in the spectacular views of Bir…

The heat is on in Saigon (and the Hippodrome)

The heat is on in Saigon..(and The Hippodrome)
It's very rare that I get totally excited due to an email and pretty unheard of that I squeal at one (unless there's an amazing gig tickets to be released). But this time, the squeal was very much necessary. I had been invited by Brum Bloggers to attend the Hippodrome's launch of their summer menu as well as to a performance of Miss Saigon. Wow, simply WOW!

I'm a frequent visitor to the Hippodrome whether it be for a Matthew Bourne production which always happens to fall on my Birthday or a girly get together post Hurst Street cocktails. I simply adore the theatre, whether it be reliving an old classic or getting lost in something unknown. However, Miss Saigon is a show I was yet to see. It was discussed when announced in Birmingham but none of the girls took the lead on arranging the night and I for one could not bear to start another Whatsapp group. So, the thought of the performance along with a Miss Saigon inspired menu …
