So I arranged to meet Aftab, one of my favourite London based bloggers (because bloggers really do make the best cake dates).
We met at Knightsbridge and after a quick look round the Harrods Christmas Shop and Food Hall we headed to L'Eto for something sweet.
L'Eto looks tiny from the outside and as we made our way in and asked for a table for 2 I wasn't very hopeful that they'd be able to accommodate us. Little did I know there was a narrow staircase at the back leading to a further area downstairs. We were the only people down there and found ourselves in a cosy room complete with Christmas tree and fireplace.
After examining each and every cake and taking forever to decide I eventually chose a muffin. I would never normally pick a muffin over a slice of cake but these were no ordinary muffins. It was a huge chocolate mountain complete with a sticky cherry topping.
Aftab went for carrot cake and it was literally the biggest slab of cake I'd ever seen. I wasn't convinced he'd ever be able to eat it all. I never should have underestimated a blogger's talent at eating cake though as he did a very good job of tackling it.
The food at L'Eto was fantastic, and I'll be paying them another visit next time I'm in the capital.
