RECOMMENDATION: Cake Tin Delights in Blackpool
Amongst the hustle and bustle and bright lights of Blackpool Town Centre is a little gem of a cake store. A shop that bakes the most delicious treats and is an absolute must to visit. Serving a whole host of different sweet treats there’s sure to be something to tickle your fancy.
I’d like to think I’m a professional cake connoisseur- an expert in my field and pride myself in being able to sniff out a good dessert a mile off. But these aren’t just your regular desserts and treats. Kelly makes the most delicious mish-mash of sweet treats. Double loaded brownies with your favourite chocolate bars, stuffed blondies (white chocolate brownies) topped with cheesecake icing, mouth-watering fudgie stacks and even cookie sandwiches oozing with a chocolate filling.
But, in my opinion, the best thing about Cake Tin Delights has to be their signature ‘Brookie’. What’s a Brookie I hear you ask? It’s a soft and gooey brownie baked inside of a warm, stuffed cookie in every flavour imaginable: Kinder Nutella, Crunchie, Milky Bar, Jammy Dodger, Mint Aero, Stuffed Oreo, Galaxy Ripple, Salted Caramel, Freddo, Cherry Bakewell, Lotus Biscoff, Milky Star… you name it, Kelly bakes it.
The counter changes every day so expect to see something different but as equally delicious on your next visit! The only downside is that the shop usually sells out before closing time so make sure you head down early to avoid disappointment!
And what’s even better… Kelly also offers a vegan counter too so everybody is able to share in the delight!
No sweet potato, beetroot and quinoa brownies in sight but the same delicious goodies drenched in dairy-free chocolate and vegan-friendly treats. Having been dairy free myself for the last ten months the vegan counter has become my saving grace. Allowing me to indulge in the same treats as everyone else. My absolute favourite treat has to be the vegan Nutella brookie or the warm Nutella cookie dough served with soft, velvety ice cream!
My husband and I, along with our daughter Evelyn, who has just turned one, are regular visitors and whilst you can just pop in for a takeaway treat it’s even more enjoyable to sit and soak in the quirky decor. Dressed in white, blue and red and with no WiFi, Kelly offers a variety of board games and books. A touch that I love!
We’ve been on several occasions for an ‘Afternoon Treat Tea’ which unlike usual Afternoon Tea offers a selection of desserts. A perfect way to sample a variety of the counter because let’s face it, when you go in there isn’t just going to be one thing that takes your fancy. Served on a pretty cake stand and with your choice of tea or coffee, it’s a perfect way to spend a few hours catching up with your nearest and dearest.
There isn’t much more you could ask for. A cosy seat, the smell of warm cookies, a comforting hot drink and a delicious treat all served with a friendly smile from Kelly and her team. If you’re in the Blackpool area (or even if you’re not) it’s definitely worth a visit to Cake Tin Delights.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
I had already heard good things about Elements. Despite only just celebrating their first birthday, they’ve been nominated for two awards in Marketing Derby’s food and drink awards (Best Newcomer and Best Customer Service). Thanks to their beautifully curated Instagram feed they were firmly on my Girl About radar.
So when Elements got in touch to invite us to try their teddy bear’s picnic themed children’s menu I jumped at the opportunity. I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed a delicious lunch out with my toddler. We have loads of fun but I’d pretty much resigned myself that civilised lunches at nice places were largely a thing of the past. I was intrigued to see whether this was the answer. In the week or so before, Lily was bubbling with excitement. I remained somewhat sceptical.
Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.
