Hello Folks,

Hope you managed to get through Monday with ease,  todays blog is about a place I’ve been meaning to tell you about sicne September!!

The Vintage cupcake Kitchen can be found @ 39 High street, Uppermill,Oldham.  Since it opened in 2011 I had been past a few times and had never managed to pop in. So one day last September I went one Sunday morning and found out there was a villege event on. All the shops on the high street were done up with 1950’s decor and bunting. There was also mucic playing like it was coming through a gramophone people were dressed up. People started to line the streets and I found out there was going to be a parade of Amearican army vehicles, tanks and such.



However nice all this was it didnt get me any closer to getting mits on one of the fabulous looking cupcakes!!! the Vintage cupcake kitchen were also joining in the festivities and had tradition lemonade, red white and blue cake pops for sale out at the front of the shop. They were clearly not open however I was on a mission and decided to go in and ask if I could buy a cupcake. The lady had wooden trays of cupcakes and from what I can remember the ranges of flavours included, mint areo, maltesser, strawberry, what looked like a cupcake shaped like an ice cream and of course the one I chose Rocky road!! It was placed into a cute little bag and decided to get out of the centre of Uppermill before the parade started. I found a nice little park to take photos of the cupcake before scoffing it…and yes it tasted as good as it looked.

I do mean to go back and hope to enjoy a slice of cake with either a cup coffee or a milkshake, anyone facy it?


I have taken the following paragraph from the about part on the Vintage cupcake kitchen’s facebook page, I think this describes the place perfectly and has saved me a job;)

“The Vintage Cupcake kitchen is our little piece of heaven where you can come and relax with freinds and family and enjoy the atmosphere in our pretty little tea room, sip a cup of tea from vintage china whilst enjoying one of our 12 flavours of homemade cupcakes, shortcake scones, chocolate chunk brownie and now also our new milkshake bar.
