Something major is brewing in London, and we just had to share this with you. The UK’s number one soft drinks brand* Fentimans are opening the UK’s first POP-UP GIN BAKERY. Do we need to write any more?
Okay, well seeing as we are feeling generous, we will give you ALL the details. Fentimans has announced the launch of its pop-up gin bakery in partnership with the artisan cake-makers Pearl & Groove. To add even more fizz to the event, the pop up will be opened by Sophie Faldo, the 2017 GBBO winner. This is all at the Pearl and Groove Bakery on Notting Hill’s Portobello Road.
When is this happening you ask? Well, it’s THIS WEEKEND, opening today the 21st and open to everyone until Sunday the 23rd of September. There will be GIN and CAKE; and not just any cake, they will be gin themed cakes. To make things even more tempting, you can have a G&T made from the same gin and mixer as your cake. We will forgive you if you have drifted off in a haze of excitement, but please read on.
If you can’t make it down to London, don’t fret. You can still get involved with Fentimans series of G&T baking recipes. Each involving the botanically brewed mixers. Highlights involve gin and Botanical Tonic bundt cake, Pink Grapefruit Tonic cheesecake and our personal choice Sparkling Elderflower cupcakes. Fentimans are encouraging us all to get involved in the gin baking fun by simply sharing photos of home-made Gin baking delights on social media to win a Kitchen Aid worth £300**.
Just so you are clear this is CAKE and GIN- quite possibly the best combination since, well whatever came before cake and gin! We’ll see you there…
