This Cake would set you Back Several Hundreds of pounds but look at the precise detailing and the cute little penguins who could resist such a beautiful cake and let’s be honest it would make an absolutely fantastic centerpiece at any wedding.

Our Christmas social meeting will take place on Tuesday 11th December at the excellent Tea at 94 on Buccleuch Street.
We just can’t enough of Michelle’s lovely cakes and the homely atmosphere at Tea at 94.
It’s very much a drop in event, no need to bake anything, we’ll be purchasing cakes and drinks from the venue. Michelle has even offered to kindly make anything from her savoury menu for those who wish to come straight from work.
Just turn up anytime from 6pm (the venue is staying open just for us) and catch up with fellow cake ladies before Santa visits. Please leave email us, leave a message on Facebook or tweet us if you’re coming for a rough idea of numbers. There is also a Facebook event page.
Date for the 2013 diary

i like this picture this was taken at the good food show in glasgow in october. i really like there style of cooking and got my masterchef cook book signed too x they didnt have a chance really to chat to me but from what i saw very busy day and long for them
On Tuesday I made one of my regular visits to the cafe by the park in Dunfermline.
One of the reasons i like here so much is the service is excellent the manager johnathan seats you and asks you if you would like a taste of their soup of the day the food is great they also have a seperate menu which is gluten Free all there cakes are handmade on the premises and they sell luxury mackies ice cream too.
On Tuesday’s visit I had a Chicken Fillet burger served with Chips and Coleslaw it was no frills cooking just good regular food and it was priced at only £5.95. As i said not fine dining but ordinary food at an ordinary price!
This place is also licensed if you fancy a glass of wine with your dinner. It is situated by the Glen gates of pittencrieff park in Chalmers Street Dunfermline.
http://cafebythepark.com/ is there website and there menus can be viewed here online
