Mon 14th Feb: Heart Shaped Velvet Cake at RELAY Tea Room
A new Tea Room has opened up in the burgeoning Brixton Market complex which is whipping up the best range in sweet treats. I went down yesterday for special Valentine themed tea with Yellow Rose Cream and Red Velvet Heart Shaped cakes. It was all washed down with English Breakfast Tea in cute cups and mint leaf / strawberry infused water. Janelle Monae's Archandroid album was singing out of the soundsystem........the sisters who have set up the tea room know a thing or two about music so on any given day the tunes will be a guaranteed draw. For me, it was the triple layer banana cake from the fair hands of Mrs Mcksays that first got me hooked to the baking sensation even before the cafe was set up. Now the doors are open for breakfast, lunch and tea ........ on the patchwork print bonquette under bookshelves of collected crockery and cook books.
