Tales From The Tearooms, Airy Fairy Cake Boutique

 Whenever I go over to Stockport, I do try and come back to Salford via Didsbury so I can visit Airy Fairy Cake Boutique. Situated on School Lane, this is a delightful tea shop which sells delicious cakes and has recently started to serve sandwiches too. The decor is very shabby chic and vintage, nothing matches and a small range of gifts is for sale. I've bought two beautiful brooches from there in the past.
 The cup-cakes are excellent but so are the macroons, the lemon drizzle and I always like to think their berry cake counts as part of my 5-a-day.
Prices are not too dear and they also offer afternoon tea plus classes in cupcakes and cocktails, amongst other things. You can follow the very friendly staff on twitter @Airyfairycakes or visit the web-site


  1. yum! Looks so scrummy. I don't have any 'must visit' tea shops here. Starbucks is my place to grab a coffee (the only time I drink it), but it just lacks the charm of a proper tea shop.

    Just been reading your previous posts. YOu met Justine Picardie! I love her work, her book about Chanel was just brilliant. Love the messages she wrote.


    1. Thank you Sadie, you will have to visit Manchester one day & we will tour the tea shops! Justine Picardie was wonderful, her talk was so moving. Have you read her blog? She always replies to comments.

  2. would love to, between you & Thrifty, you've made Manchester sound really fab.

    Ooh, no idea she had a blog, shall track it down and visit! ta! xx

    p.s good luck again to The Girl x
