Xmas treats from Chalk Farm, Paragon

It honestly still surprises me that Chalk Farm is thriving. Rental should be pretty exorbitant and their cakes are good at best. I'll eat them if they are in front of me but I won't go out of my way to get them.

On my sister's request, we tried a trio of their festive bakes - Espresso Meringue Cake, Pumpkin Cake and Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter. There was a common thread throughout the slices - light, fluffy and made with quality ingredients. Even this got monotonous after a while, most of their cakes are just sponge mattresses with a decent layer of buttercream. Perhaps some people like the simplicity but for me, the cakes here are easily erasable from my memory.
