The Cakeman Bakery - amazing cakes all over the city!
I’m a huge fan of cake and I know many of you are too..! I’m also a huge fan of Hayden Colledge, the cake wizard behind The Cakeman Bakery. I’m sure you’ve seen him (at Palo Alto and All Those for example) surrounded by all the deliciousness he creates, except if you don’t come early enough and it’s all sold out.
And very important news: you don’t have to wait until a big event to enjoy these delicacies. I checked with Hayden and he was kind enough to send me a list of all of the places that serve The Cakeman Bakery cakes! For those of you on a health streak now after Christmas excesses I can tell you that he also does gluten free and vegan cakes, so no worries there. So here comes the list, I'm sure you'll recognise several of these places:
Elsa y Fred – located in the Born, a good selection of his cakes
Buho – on Paseo San Juan, they have carrot cake, chocolate Guinness cake and a plum cake
Hush Hush – this lovely new place in the Born has cookies, cheesecake, plum cakes, brownies…
Oval and Massa – did you know that they have The Cakeman Bakery cheesecakes..? Oval is a burger place and Massa a pizza place
Tallers 76 – they have a few cakes from Hayden, and some from other places too
Nostrum on Escudellers – What? Nostrum? Yes! They have a good range of tray bakes (brownie, caramel slice etc) and you can get the cakes by the slice for a good price!
