Delightful, pretty cakes
As a self confessed sweet tooth, I don't need to be asked twice to stop for coffee and cake at Cakes by Judy C at Ashgrove. What was difficult was choosing which pretty, mouth-watering and delectable treat in the cake cabinet to have. Each looked to be a delightful gem of sweetness. I chose the State of Origin inspired cupcake to have with my Brisbane based Wolf Roasters coffee although the chochlate slice, blueberry topped cupcakes and rocky road also caught my eye.
The espresso bar on the terrace of this first floor shop has a shabby chic inspired look and is a cozy and stylish spot to enjoy your pretty, sugary delights. It gives the feel of relaxing at home with friends in a small garden.
While the cupcakes are a tasty morsel, it is the larger, celebration cakes where Cakes by Judy C really excels. Exquisite wedding, birthday or baby shower cakes can be made to order for your special occasion or just because.
If you leave your visit feeling inspired, Cakes by Judy C also offer classes and events where you can learn to make your own delectable delights. Birthday workshops, kids cakes by numbers, or easter cupcakes basics 101 are just some of the classes on offer.
