GF day out at the Lambeth Country Show

Last weekend we went to the annual Lambeth Country Show in Brockwell Park, South London, where there are rides, a city farm, food and a sheep shearing show! What's not to like?  We Were spoilt with a beautiful sunny day, my son had a great time at the city farm tent poking his fingers through the netting at the chickens and making various noises at the guinea pigs.

 Food wise there were a lot of vans dotted around the field, I spotted a vegetarian van offering GF mushroom stroganoff but it was so hot I didn't fancy it. That was the only sign I saw for something savoury, I ended up having 2 pieces of bacon and some onions in a cup (don’t ask)!  Gluten free signs were a lot more prevalent when it came to sweet treats. I spied a crepe stall offering gluten free pancakes and in the food hall 3 out of 4 stalls had gluten free cakes on offer.  I bought and ate two in quick succession! 

The first one was from Trinas delicacies it was a small carrot cupcake with a cream cheese icing, it was a great little cake, lovely texture, nice bite and yummy icing, I could of happily had another one as it was really nice, she also had some vegan options.

I then wandered over the Ms Cupcake stand where they had a selection of yummy sounding gluten free cupcakes. This time I went for a bounty cupcake, they look do amazing and I love the different flavours, the cake was nice but too much icing for me, read my full review of Ms Cupcake’s cakes here.  My brother enjoyed a non GF lime cheesecake but felt the same on the too much icing front.  So overall a great day out for all the family and here’s hoping their our more savoury options for us gluten free foodies next year.
