On my way to hear Noam Chomsky talk about the current crises in the Middle East at the St David’s Hall this morning, I stopped to buy a couple of cup cakes from Sugarswirlz.
It was a big local news story. As a TV crew were filming in the shop the next day, a fire alarm went off. They tried conducting an interview a few times, but the alarm kept going off. Eventually the arcade was evacuated due to a fire in a nearby building.
The “cup cake lady” wanted Sweet Tooth Fairy Cakes, a truly unique cake, with multi-coloured butter-icing topped with candy floss. This morning, I went for a Marshmallow and a New York Cheesecake with Flake (all cup cakes are £2.20 each). There was a big choice of flavours (I’ll probably try the Strawberry or the Raspberry next time), and plenty of Sweet Tooth Fairy Cakes (as advertised on the sign near the entrance of the arcade).
I can see why children (and anyone with a sweet tooth) love these cakes. A light, fresh sponge is weighed down with loads of gooey topping. It’s all the sugar rush you want, and more.
Now, what can we do about the Middle East Noam? Well, for starters we can boycott shops that continue to sell food grown on illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank…
