Brighton & Choccywoccydoodah

On Wednesday I had a little day trip out to Brighton with the family, I have been here for years and as you can imagine it was scorching hot and totally packed! After a lunch of fish 'n' chips on the promenade we strolled in to town for a little shopping.

Me!

So here I am in the most fabulous shop, Choccywoccydoodah, you may have seen their show on TV. They make the most amazing chocolate sculptural cakes and delicious treats. They are eveing more amazing in real life - each piece is hand sculpted & painted and finished in all kinds of sparkly loveliness! You can buy some of their stuff online - do check out their website.


Easter Window

The easter window had a cottage garden theme, the cake on the left had wellies, veg and teapots - soo cute!


Sparkly Cabbages

Sparkly cabbage patch & cheeky looking bunny.


Easter Eggs

Scrumdiddlyumptious easter eggs, there were also marshmallow & choc sheep, really sweet little choc shoes and of course amazing cakes.


Easter Display

Beautiful candy house - the roof is covered in hundreds & thousands.


Treats

This was our haul - little sparkly egg, chocolate praline butterflies and a gift bag filled with white choc covered marshmallows, milk choc cornflake piece and dark choc rice crispie treat. The chocolate is really goo quality, yummy!  We also had a stroll up to the lanes and I visited a very cool vintage store called Snoopers Paradise on the recommendation of Miss Peelpants and found a gorgeous biba-esque jacket which being the silly gal I am, I failed to try on only to be heartbroken when I got home and realised it was far too small! But my loss may be your gain.....


Brighton Pier

We finished of the day with a 99 and a trip to the pier where I couldn't resist having my pic taken here!
