Pop in and treat yourself to a chocolate gift or an entire cake and head to the beach, Pavillion Gardens or one of the seafront squares to eat it in comfort and watch the world go by. All their cakes are made by hand, with love, in Brighton.

They only use the very best ingredients including unsalted English butter, Belgian chocolate, fresh fruit and free range eggs. Plus cupcake baking accessories if you fancy having a go yourself.
