I received a very welcome email last night from the people at Jellytots and Dollymixtures, letting me know they were opening a shop right here in Chorlton and to come along for free samples and a glass of fizz at 11am. Well, you don’t need to tell me twice!
If you haven’t heard of the company, let me tell you they have an excellent reputation. They already have one shop in Sale and are stocked in places like Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. This new shop is on Railway Terrace in Chorlton (past the Unicorn and towards Upper Chorlton Road).
We’ve made and sold a few cupcakes in our time, so can often be disappointed by the quality in some shops, but I’m pleased to say this measure up to our high standards. We tried a few of the mini cupcakes and both decided that our absolute favourite was sticky toffee pudding. That’s right. You heard me. Sticky toffee pudding cupcake.
What I like most about this place is that they keep things pretty simple. They look really impressive but aren’t over the top and they have quite a few interesting flavours.They do what they do really well, and for a reasonable price. And it was that reasonable price that meant we ended up buying a box of six to share with our friends (truthfully, we shall be keeping them all to ourselves and sampling them while watching trashy tv tonight).
I wish them every success and would definitely recommend you go and give them a try.
