1. Cutter & Squidge Billionaire Dream Cake

Soho’s trendy Cutter & Squidge, the brainchild of foodie sisters Annabel and Emily Lui, is home to divine Dream Cakes, Biskies and jars of salted caramel. Each of its sweet treats is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, while the fat and sugar content is kept as low as possible. With so many mouth-watering flavours to choose from, including traditional options, it’s pretty hard to select a favourite but the Billionaire really hits the spot. It looks a treat and tastes just as delicious.
