Thanks a lot to everyone who greeted me on Mother's Day, you guys are awesome! As promised, here is the post about the cake shop & cafe that I raved about on my previous post. 

Choccywoccydoodah is not your usual cake shop. Although they have regular designs that you could view and buy online or in their shops, they are more popular for their decadent, bespoke, hand made cakes for any occasions using Belgian chocolates. They also sell unique chocolate gifts and chocolate cake decorations.

They have a show on Sky TV which features some of their cakes and how they make them. I love chocolates and have always wanted to visit their shop ever since I saw their show. That's why I was so happy that Papa E drove us to Brighton so that I could finally visit their shop.
Their window display. (Everything on display is edible).

They change their display with the change of the season or if there's an occasion. 

They had more cakes inside the shop but I was too mesmerised with the amount of goodies they have on display that I forgot to take more photos.

After visiting their shop, we went back to the seafront. I left Poj and Papa E to play at the beach while I window shopped. There are a lot of cute & quirky shops in Brighton. They're great coz they are small businesses so you know that you are buying unique items. There are also a lot of artists here, these are evident with all the paintings for sale and galleries in the city. 

And before we head home we went to the Choccycoccydoodah bar du chocolat. It is only a few yards away from the main shop. It was a little cafe located around the corner of Middle street. Having seen the place on telly many times, it was weird to feel so familiar to a place you're visiting for the first time. It was everything I expected it to be, it was a chocoholic's paradise. 
It was cloudy and cold outside and we sought refuge within the brightly coloured walls of the cafe.  We found comfort in the most indulgently thick, creamy hot chocolate I've ever sipped (Papa E went for the dark hot chocolate whilst I opted for the white one thinking that Poj might want to try it too).  I tasted both and preferred the dark one. Mine was overly sweet, I did not even get to finish it. It was still lovely though, perfect for the cold day. I ordered a chocolate cake (of course!) and was delighted when handed a huge slab of a deliciously moist cake drizzled with dark and white chocolates and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 

We didn't order anything for Poj coz I know that their servings were huge. But we were surprised when the waitress came back and gave Poj these goodies for free. We all thought that the edible chocolate pencil and butterfly were so cool! 

Inside the cafe is a room or "boudoir" than can be rented for 2 hours for a private function such as a girlie get together or birthday party. The fee includes as much you can eat and drink of  Pure Belgian hot chocolates, milk shakes, chocolate cake, cup cakes and chocolate buttons. Molten chocolate in which to dip strawberries, marshmallows, nougat etc

There was a party on their boudoir which reduced the shop's capacity in half.  They had to turn away a lot of customers coz the place was full. I would be terribly disappointed if we didn't get a table! Buti na lang we didn't have to wait very long to get one.
The party ended before we finished so I was able to see what it looks like inside and even managed to take a photo - red overload! And it was wall to wall with murals and was surrounded with comfy red chaise lounge such as this one.  
The photo on the left is white chocolate popcorn lolly - no, I didn't buy one. I'm not a big fan of sweet popcorn. Papa E bought me a slice of lemon cake instead and a promise to pop in again the next time we visit Brighton.

I think the visit satisfied my chocolate cravings for the year. It was a sweet Mother's day celebration, literally!

Thanks again Papa E & Poj for the wonderful day and for my pressie =)
