Before I start waffling on about cake, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who commented or tweeted me about yesterday's post. You truly warmed my heart and I feel so lucky to have such wonderful, understanding readers who have left me feeling refreshed, full of positivity and ready to start a new chapter of I Covet Thee. For those worried that it meant my blogging days were coming to an end, have no fear, I'll be here talking about junk food, make up and how much I've unwisely spent at Space NK for a long time to come!
As for the cake, it was beyond good. Darren and I drove down to Southsea yesterday afternoon to take a stroll along the seafront and indulge in one of our favourite places to eat, The Tenth Hole. It's an adorable little cafe right at the end of a pitch and putt course (for those who like to work up an appetite before they eat their oversized desserts), full to the brim with all the shabby chic decor you could ever wish for and even a stash of hot water bottles and blankets to take your pick from if you choose to sit outside when it's particularly nippy. Plus, anywhere that puts a tub of Nutella right alongside salt, pepper and the rest of the condiments on the table gets a thumbs up in my book.
The food is beautiful, but it's definitely the huge selection of sweet treats that make it worth the visit. Think monster Banoffee Pie, Mars Bar Cheesecake and the biggest Victoria Sponge I've ever seen in my life - are you drooling yet? Because I am. We went for a slice of the Vegan Chocolate Cake to share, not that you would ever have guessed it was dairy free it tasted so good, then waddled around in a very slow fashion for the rest of the day. A Saturday very well spent I'd say!
