Eric Lanlard is launching a festive-themed pop-up cake shop in the GILT Cocktail Lounge in London next month.
The new Cake Boy boutique, based on his bakery business in Battersea, south London, will open on 14 and 15 December from 11am to 4pm in the drinking venue, located in the five-star hotel Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightsbridge.
The temporary bakery shop will be selling a selection of Christmas cupcakes, boxes of mini mince pies and Lanlard’s twist on the traditional Christmas cake.
Lanlard, who will running the pop-up shop, said: “I’m excited to take Cake Boy on the road. Jumeirah Carlton Tower offers the perfect temporary home, located in the heart of Knightsbridge, and just off one of London’s most exclusive shopping streets.”
