Belly Flops - Jelly Belly Beans

Ever wanted to know what happens to the misshaped Jelly Belly Beans? Well from my discovery it seems they don't go to waist, that's a relief!

I came across these in my local pound store, not only were they a cheap find, they also taste no different to the 'normally shaped' beans. One might say they are better because in some cases you get two beans stuck together, double the flavour!

My rating for these will have to be a 4/5. I love that they are making use of the misshaped beans and not chucking them away, but I'm a little picky when it comes to the flavours so some of the beans I'll more than likely pass onto the boyfriend (Less for me). 

Thanks for replying Jelly Belly UK :)

Bath Cake Company: Trip 2

I've finally booked myself onto a cupcake decorating course, I will be learning from the wonderful Bath Cake Company in a week or so. Cameras are allowed, so look forward to a blog post from me then.

Whilst I was there paying for the course, I couldn't help but purchase a couple more of their amazing cupcakes to try. Fudge and Lemon.

The Fudge cupcake had a lovely sponge and very tasty fudge pieces on top. 

The Lemon cupcake had a surprising bit of lemon curd in the middle. 

I think you can guess from my last post what the rating will be for these...

Bath Cake Company

The Bath Cake company is a lovely little shop based within the center of Bath. As well as owning their own shop and running cake decorating courses, they also supply a range of cakes, traybakes and biscuits to some of the city's finest independent cafes. 

I've known about this little place for a while, follow them on Twitter and Facebook, but still hadn't tried any of their sweet treats. So after a Facebook post stating that the cupcake of the day was 'Raspberry and white chocolate', I thought it was about time I went over to investigate!

Firstly their shop is a bakers dream! So many tools, decorations, everything you'll need to make a beautiful masterpiece. But also their cupcakes come in the most cutest little boxes ever! It's £2 for a cupcake from their shop on Lansdown Road and it's defiantly worth it. (Obviously I'm easily amused by a small branded box...).

Now, let's get down to the taste...

The actual part cake was perfect, real pieces of raspberry in there too! The butter cream was spot on, just the right amount and not too sweet. And the decoration adds that little extra in terms of texture. 

Soon I hope to attend one of their many cupcake decorating classes, finally I'll be able to learn how to use the piping kit my nan bought me for my birthday correctly!

Overall my tasting experience was great, it's a 5/5 from me!
