Cake Cake Cake...
Unless you've been completely walking around your city with your eyes shut you would have realised that dessert shops are popping up everywhere and by everywhere I mean everywhere. Town centres, villages, shopping centres, high streets... everywhere!!
Whether you're one scoop or two, a strawberry and white chocolate crepe, an Oreo waffle or peanut butter cup shake, the dessert shop phenomenon is taking over and I quite like it.
After a 5am wake up call and a full shift at work (on a Sunday may I add) the girls and I planned for dessert, to simply get us through our Sunday and well.....'cause we love cake.
And then there was Eis Cafe - Small Heath, Birmingham.
Eis Cafe is owned by four Spanish brothers who had dreams of owning an ice cream parlour and coffee shop when they were younger. Two of the brothers moved away to Germany for a while before all of them made their move to the UK.
It was then that Eis was born...The guys wanted to bring something new to the cafe phenomenon and with no experience they still knew that they wanted to be innovative and knowledgeable in all aspects of desserts and ice cream.
What we ate..
I had a peanut butter Pizookie ( pizza cookie which is cookie dough with toppings ) with Ferrero Rocher ice cream and M&Ms , the cookie dough was to die for however, my eyes were much bigger than my belly. My friend Kayleigh had a smores Pizookie, with a red velvet ice cream while Tammy had one of the famous Loco shakes,the Red Velvet loco shake to be exact. The shake looked amazing and was made up of strawberry pavlova, red velvet crumble cake and strawberry marshmallows.
If you're ever in Birmingham or fancy the trip to Small Heath, Eis Cafe is a must! Infact the guys will be branching out in Dusseldorf in 2018, soon to be taking over Europe if they have their way.
