Chocolate Cupcake, Ginger Beer
I don’t think there’s a better combination if you possess a sweet tooth. We went back to Frankie’s Farmshop on Sunday (a place we visited the Sunday before), and decided to walk as the weather was stunning. It’s just under two miles from our house, so it’s a nice solid amble, and the ginger beer at the end is an added bonus. I’m going to have to find somewhere that supplies these “Lovely” brand drinks when I’m in Reading!
If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time (and I’m going back really far now) then you’ll know I love cupcakes, and TV shows about cupcakes. If I see a delicious-looking cupcake on offer (and if I can actually afford it), then it shall be mine! Look at that one above; it’s so messily gorgeous. The frosting was so chocolatey and delicious, and the cake itself was moist, yet firm. Yes, I know this review is hardly worthy of Florian “Has-To-Be-Subtitled-On-American-Television” Bellanger, but basically what I’m saying is that I loved this cupcake. This review is more worthy of a guest judge on Cupcake Wars. I’m going to stop referencing Cupcake Wars now.
The great thing about Frankie’s Farmshop is that there’s plenty to see. For the kids there are a few activities, and , more interestingly, chickens and goats. Some of the chickens just roam free, like the little fella we found under our chairs while we were eating outside (picture below), which adds to the fun. We also bought some vegetables from, though sadly didn’t visit the cheese counter. Next time, I promise! I did buy one of their huge sausage rolls though, for my lunch at work. They make their sausage rolls, scotch eggs and sausages from the same sausage meat, which they also make themselves. It’s a fantastic place, I’m so glad it’s here!
When the website is more filled out I’ll link to it, but at the moment there’s just an “Under Construction” sign. Instead, here’s a picture of a chicken:
