Our English neighbour in Caccianebbia has a very talented and enterprising daughter. She has been making cupcakes and selling them very successfully via the internet (fantasycupcakes.co.uk). A few weeks ago she finished renovating an old shop at 6 Ormerod Street, Rawtenstall, Lancashire and opened her very own tea shop with the great name of A Right Royal Tea Party. To quote from facebook:
A Right RoyalTea Party is a funky tea and cake shop just off Bank Street in Rawtenstall. Fantasy Cupcakes are baked fresh on the premises and we always have a yummy selection to eat in or take away. We sell teas and coffees and also yummy milkshakes in the flavours of your favourite chocolate bars.
The cakes look wonderful, especially the icing! I just wished I lived closer.
