Fortnum & Masons

My Husband and i were soaking up the sun in Piccadilly and we happened to pass Fortnum & Mason and I was in heaven !! 

Outside shot just before entering, window displays were amazing

"To enter Fortnum's from Piccadilly is to be transported into a soft-carpeted, sugar-coated fantasy, where nothing bad can happen – with the possible exception of an insulin-induced coma."

My wonderful husband trying to decide what to buy

I was mesmerised entering for the first time and i couldn't close my mouth,  (must have looked like a lunatic!). 
I came out feeling inspired i now have so many ideas and concepts, i cannot wait to start baking!!

Top floor, crockery 

Top floor, Hampers and gifts 

The shop extends over 3 floors (I think) the basement sells cheese and meat etc.. the middle floor sells cakes, curds and all the yummy stuff and the top floor has branded F&M hampers and gifts, crockery sets and baking equipments. 
I must say the middle floor is the best, everything is beautiful, from the chandeliers to the packaging of their Earl Grey tea, endless vibrant colours so visually pleasing to the eye.

Middle floor, Simply delicious goodies

Curds and jelly so many flavours it's hard to choose

I bought Guava and Rose Petal jelly and they are delicious, it would be a crime not to introduce these flavours to my cakes, infact i am seriously considering getting my supplies from F&M because it is not just about making pretty cakes, it is absolutely imperative that they taste good too.
