Da Cake Cupboard: Fresh Home Baking at the Side of the Road

At the side of a winding single-track road in East Burrafirth in Shetland, you'll find 'Da Cake Cupboard'. It's a huge fridge, stocked daily with delicious homebakes made by Lynn Johnson.

There's so many things to choose from, including beautifully decorated cupcakes, tiffin and lots of free-from cakes as well. There's also a selection of other items such as soft drinks and sweets.

Simply select the goodies that you'd like to buy, and leave your money in the cash box!

Before you go, take a quick look in the field over the road in case you can spot some friendly locals to say hello to!

EDIT: Since publishing this post, 'Da Cake Cupboard' has been rebranded as 'The Cake Fridge'. It still has the same fantastic selection of cakes - just a different name!

If you love home bakes, you might also have had the pleasure of a visit to the famous Ollaberry Sunday Teas. 2019 marks their 35th year, and to celebrate, I've created a collection of goodies which you can find here.
