On Saturday we were lucky enough to host a pop up Afternoon Tea at a house which time forgot . . . .Dennis Severs.

Throughout the day we feasted on Baileys Trifle, Mini Victoria Sponge Cakes, Marshmallows, Lemon Bars, Scones and Brownies. Thank goodness for the stairs or else we wouldn’t have been able to move!

A big thank you to David and Mick at Dennis Severs House for their generous hospitality and kindness. The house is open to the public on Sundays and I would really recommend going.




On Saturday we will be hosting our first pop up tea party of the year at Dennis Severs House! The house has been beautiful restored to fit previous centuries, and I can honestly say it is one of the most intriguing spaces I have ever been to. Guests will be taken on a silent tour of the house before sitting down to a bespoke teatime menu, served in either the basement kitchen , the parlour or my favourite the drawing room.

There are still a few places left for the 12pm & 5.30pm sittings so email us at cakes@beasofbloomsbury.com


So it has taken us just over 3 years to re-discover our blog!

Back in the good old days we had no more than 10 customers a day, Bea worked all day and night in the kitchen and the girls made coffee, answered the phones and emails and even painted the walls.┬áSadly the piano from Theobalds Road didn’t make the three years, but the shop is still standing!!

The past three years have been a whirlwind, in October 2010 we opened our second location right by St Pauls and this June we helped to open our sister concept Bloomsbury’s cupcakes in Abu Dhabi (yes Abu Dhabi) and hey we even have a cookbook coming out in September!

On Saturday will see us host our first stall at Maltby Street Market (2 doors up from St John Bakery!) where will be selling LOTS of cakes . .expect Bourbon and Square Mile espresso bundt cakes, Peanut Butter and Jam slices (so so good), GIANT meringues and yes there will even be cupcakes.

Stay tuned and we may even update the blog again before 2014!
