Cake 'Ole Skipton

My niece Sophie celebrated her 13th birthday on Saturday and what better way to celebrate than a visit to the Cake 'Ole in Skipton

I lived and worked in Skipton for nearly 10 years and have always loved Craven Court shopping centre for it's cute shops and the quirky tea room has made a welcome addition when it opened it's doors last year.  

Sophie enjoyed a blue raspberry lemonade whereas I opted for a yummy Fitzpatrick's strawberry daiquiri mocktail. 

As you can imagine the Cake 'Ole is all about the cake and I indulged in the chocolate and ginger cake whilst Sophie had the marshmallow cake, both served with ice-cream.

The icing on the cake (see what I did there?) was that the lovely staff brought Sophie's cake over with a candle in it and they all sang Happy Birthday, which Sophie found utterly embarrassing! What are Auntie's for if not for embarrassing their nieces.

Whilst in Craven Court we popped into one of Sophie's favourite little shops; Emma's Apothecary which is full of lovely gifts, cards and treats.

Have you visited Skipton recently? I definitely recommend The Cake 'Ole and a wander around Craven Court to anyone.
