We fancied the French Fancies….

We most definitely fancied the French Fancies before we visited this morning, but after devouring too many cakes to mention, we think we’re a little bit in love with them.

Victoria has already blogged about the morning which you can read about here and Alison has posted pictures of what she ate.

It was lovely to see some new faces and some that were conveniently off work! Here’s some pictures of the cakes and tarts that we devoured.

It was hard not to lick the display

Two of the first delights ordered, a chocolate and a raspberry creation

Cute tea cosies

Rum baba and macarons

Paris brest

Raspberry frangipane

Apple tart

Not even a crumb left

We love this sign on the wall

A big thanks to the French Fancies for hosting us and supplying such wonderful cakes and tarts.

The next get together of the Edinburgh Cake Ladies (and men) will be on the weekend of April 21st and 22nd. Read how you can get attend and come and say hello (and eat cake).

The location of May’s morning meeting will be published in due course.

We will continue to meet on the first Wednesday of every month and everyone is welcome. Subscribe to our blog (by RSS or enter your email in the top right hand corner).

Extra note:  A big hello to Victoria’s mom who we know reads this blog in Canada! So glad to have met you when you were in Edinburgh and happy future baking and eating of cake.
