I visited Squires Kitchen in Farnham, Surry on the way to Gatwick on our last day before flying home to Aus. Bea's of Bloomsbury is worth a visit.

I suspect it's not uncommon for 'names' to charge for consults - in the same way that Cake Boss does.  It stops time wasters, I guess.

 

I've heard of a few cake makers who charge about £20 for a consult (that comes off the price of the cake if they go ahead), again, to stop time wasters.

Oooh, what about Eric Lanlard's shop?  That's supposed to be lovely (not been myself)

Konditor and Cook are worth a look, too....

And, again, I've not been, but the cake looks lovely!!

I've also heard that Choccywoccydoodah can produce dry cakes and that cutting them ends up being a complete mess!

Oh my goodness so many to look at - ah well who needs to see the palace?

 

I think Choccywoccydoodah is a definite, just for the name alone, it makes me giggle. I've just struggled through making a chocolate cake decorated with chocolates in a QLD heatwave, so my respect of anyone who deals with chocolate is sky high at the moment!
