Now more than ever it is so important to support small local independent business. People that were running established and successful operations before this horrible virus hit have had to reorganise and adapt their business to try and rebuild.
Pearly King Cake known for amazing celebration cakes and supplying loads of local cafes and restaurants with their sweet treats is only one of them.
They reopened yesterday with the addition of provisions and coffee to supply the locals . I popped in for a brownie , the best of brownies , that you just can't get anywhere else.
While I was there I picked up some beautiful borlotti beans and rhubarb. strong white flour from shipton mill , some Wogan Coffee and some homemade marmalade.
I would have bought some flowers as well, I saw them on pearly kings instagram , but they were all sold out already . So I guess i'm just going to have to get there earlier next week .
Thats the key you have to keep going back.
