Is this Scotland’s smallest cake shop?

Cakes in The Call Box has been set up in an old phone box in Argyll by friends and bakers Holly Ford and Bron Campbell.

Ford and Campbell repainted the decommissioned red phone box near Cladich in Argyll before building shelves and decorating. They add homemade cakes and tray bakes to sell to passers-by every day.

“Both Bron and myself really love to bake,” said Ford, “and we thought transforming the derelict phone box into a small cake shop would be a perfect way to put our baking skills to the test and bring the community of Cladich even closer together.”

The line-up includes mini lemon drizzle cakes, millionaire shortbread, raspberry blondies, custard creams, gluten-free brownies, dairy-free empire biscuits and cupcakes. Payment is made via an honesty box, only overlooked by Highland cows.

Ford and Campbell also use the phone box to advertise local businesses and offer a small book swap alongside the baked goods.

“We are over the moon with the reaction so far,” said Ford.
