Mimi's Bakehouse

Emily and I discovered Mimi's Bakehouse in Leith last Sunday. We were going to have a drink in Cafe Truva, which we love, but then I spotted a very pretty cafe almost next door, and it was just about full, so I figured we should investigate. Wow, cake paradise-big gateaux, dainty tray bakes and pretty cupcakes. Emily had a huge slice of Chocolate Maltezers cake, and I had....a scone with jam and clotted cream. Emily thought I was really boring- all those yummy cakes to choose from and I went for a scone. The thing is, I LOVE scones and Mimi's didn't disappoint, a soft melt in the mouth fruit scone with a touch of cinnamon with rasberry jam and a generous serving of clotted cream. Delicious!!!

I took some photos-and Emily pulled faces for the camera, and today I made a layout  to remember our introduction to Mimi's. I have a feeling we'll be back!!

So here's my layout:

There's mica mists, Hambly, Kaisercrafts, Pink Paislee, Dream Street, and Echo Park- a real mixture.

This is a great layout Pam. I really like how you have used the punched circles and the mica mists. Lovely fussy/fancy cutting too :)
