This weekend sees the chocolate festival hit London and just in time to help you fill your Christmas stockings with some delicious choccie. With over 50 exhibitors you’re bound to find something for everyone. I took a wee wander round yesterday after work so I could give you a peek of what exactly is on offer.

I was also really happy to see Crumbs and Doilies cupcakes who I had on my list as part of my Holy Cupcakes series of posts but sadly didn’t get the chance to visit.

IMG_4781How cute are they? I managed to resist but I may just have to pop back. and try one. The chocolate festival is open today until 8pm and tomorrow from 11 til 6pm. Go on, you know you want to!
