    It is good to see a few decent baked goods around the place. Wicklow Fine Foods has a few winners as well. In general, though, commercial baking of sweet things seems to be a part of the Irish culinary scene stuck in the “fifty years ago” time warp. We’ve pretty much given up on local outsourcing of treats for our shops, and instead other cafes and restaurants beg us for our own cakes, but we’re not really in that business! There is a market there, and I hope this is the start of some of those bakers out there doing something special!

    You’re right, Kieran. Having been disappointed so many times in the past, I only got the cookie because I was starving and I didn’t really have any high hopes for it…and then I bit into all that spicy oatmeai and razz cherry-yummyness! So, when you’re not there to make Choc Chip Cookies and Brownies, where do you get your cakes from?

    Aoife: check out the links to Kieran’s site for lots more mmmmmm-ness!

    We have a part-time baker (my brother’s German wife, actually). She does some fabulous cakes including a fab Sachertorte. She’s the real whiz about the place…BTW – I don’t know if you know it already, but I put a link on my site to “Food Porn Watch.” Sounds nasty but it has great food blogs and has generated a lot of hits for me since I was listed…

  5. Caroline says:’s all in the family – cake, cookies and ice cream – what more could you need?!

    Thanks for the tip about Food Porn Watch. I know that they have me listed but I’ve been avoiding putting a link on the site as my work net nanny is VERY sensitive and is not a fan of the p-word at all. I’ll look into it again.
