It started at Bill's www.bills-website.co.uk , a lovely place to eat in Lewes, West Sussex; which is also a lovely place to visit if you like browsing in antique/vintage shops.
Here we had Lamingtons - a traditional Australian sponge cake dipped in chocolate and then covered in coconut; at Bill's they dip them in raspberry sauce and then coconut; served warm with vanilla ice-cream. Delicious

Cake again the following evening, eaten whilst at a very fun party as my very special friend
and her husband celebrated their 50th birthdays. Cup cakes, Yum.
The following day a little bit of shopping in Chichester, again another lovely place to visit. Coffee and cake at
the Swallow Bakery www.swallowbakery.com
Their choice of cupcakes is endless
Mine was the carrot cake, so good!
One would think that was enough cake for most but no; the following evening we had a family gathering for our niece Santina not only to wish her Happy 21st Birthday at the end of this month but also to wish her good luck as she is off to Siberia for 4 months as part of her degree course studying Russian - best of luck.
Santina kitted out for Siberia
To top that, this morning my darling niece Tasha brought round homemade orange and poppy seed cake!
So it was cake for breakfast; needless to say I haven't been near the scales !
Tomorrow I'm off for afternoon tea at the Goring Hotel, it would be rude to refuse the cake.
