HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! If you've read any of my previous posts, you may have noticed I have a major sweet tooth, so obviously I'm all for Halloween and what's a better way to celebrate Halloween than with a blog post about cake?!
Every morning, on the way to university I walk past Designer Cakes by Paige, an independent designer cake shop in the West End of Glasgow. I am always in awe of the amazing creations in their window but their Halloween display is something else!

The staff are obviously very talented and each design is as detailed and original as the next.
Unfortunately, this post was a bit of a spur of the moment idea and so the pictures are from my phone instead of my camera which doesn't quite do the pieces justice.
Aside from celebration cakes, the shop also sells a range of cupcakes and push pops. Having just suffered through a day of lectures and tutorials, I decided to reward myself with a cake to see if they tasted as good as they looked - all in the name of research, right?!
The owner, Lesley, suggested I try a push pop, so I did. It was fab and I can now confirm, the cakes definitely taste as good as they look. Layers of delicious chocolate sponge, chocolate frosting and vanilla cream :) If you ever find yourself on Great Western Road in the West End, I suggest you give one of these little delights a try!

In case you want to check out any more of the fabulous cake designs, I've left a link to the shop's website here :)
I'm going to be spending my Halloween with some friends from home who I'm really excited to catch up with after we all went our separate ways to start uni!
How will you be spending your night?
Hope you liked the pictures!
Lots of Love,
