Tucked away in a corner of the Traders Outlet in Sale you’ll find a lovely alcove put aside for the Sugar Bun Sisters. In case it ends up playing on your mind, yes, they are sisters. With that cleared up, there are the cakes. These are excellently crafted but the real appeal is the quirkyness.
Let’s start with names. Sugar Bun Sisters is a play in the Stone Roses track “Sugar Spun Sister”. And the theme carries on into the cakes with classic hits such as ‘Twisting my Lemons’ and ‘Red Velvet Underground’. There’s also a continuing theme with Manchester artists as seen from the Liam Frost and Frank Sidebottom cakes. However, I thought the best way to convey the coolness of these cupcakes was through an artistic and creative tool. I am of course talking about Powerpoint.
So grab a glass of milk, put on your best ‘watching a Powerpoint presentation’ face and enjoy.
