One of my favourite tearooms, the Macmillan Coffee Shop in Perth, is soon to close for the season.
I’ve been popping along there as often as I can recently, to make the most of it while it’s still open. It’ll be a long wait between the end of this month and April 2014 when it reopens for business.
They always have interesting and delicious scones and cakes on offer, and on a recent visit I opted for a slice of chocolate and hazelnut cake.
I was astonished by its similarity to a crocodile:
I don’t know if it’s easier to see what I mean slightly closer up:
The whole hazelnuts on top were such a tasty touch that it would have been nice to have had more of them decorating the cake. However, had that been the case, it wouldn’t have looked like a crocodile, which would have been a great pity.
A unique cake and a very happy memory.
