Blogging about food and places to eat has recently become one of my favourite topics to write about, especially when it gives me the excuse to sample lots of cake in the name of research for my blog!

My latest discovery, and easily one of my favourite tearooms is a little gem called The Cake Boutique in Darlington. Located on Duke Street behind High Row, it is easily accessible by car or by foot and in the perfect position for a stop point and treat between shops.
I spent the best part of last year working in Darlington town centre, and had no idea that this place existed, it makes me so sad to think of all the cake I have missed out on!

The interior is really pretty, with shabby chic style furniture, floral bunting, picture frames with cute pictures and quotes and a duck egg blue and white colour scheme throughout.
There is a fridge filled with cheesecakes and tarts and the counter displays all of the freshly baked cakes... The amount of choice is incredible!

After eyeing it up on Instagram I ordered the Chocolate Rolo Tart with Oreo base which was served with cream or ice cream, a drizzle of thick chocolate sauce and some Summer berries and Robbie chose a slice of Galaxy Caramel cake. To drink we shared a Virtue Strawberry & Peach Ice Tea which came in a large kilner jar.

The desserts all looked so delicious, but I had seriously high hopes for my choice... Chocolate, Rolos, caramel, Oreo; literally my dessert of dreams! Thankfully I wasn't disappointed, it was the most indulgent, rich, gooey slice of goodness I have ever eaten.
I also managed to sneak a bit of the Galaxy Caramel cake which was also really, really good, so fresh and moist and really chocolatey.

I can't wait to return and try something different, I had my eye on the peach melba and the honeycomb flapjack too, although I can't guarantee I'll be able to resist the Rolo Tart!
It always makes my day to find somewhere that has great food, but also makes you feel comfortable; service with a smile, a friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere never goes a miss and this is definitely the kind of place you could enjoy spending time with friends.

If you're ever in Darlington and need your sugar fix for the day, I can't recommend this place enough.
