If you’re looking for the most instagrammable place in Newcastle let me tell you here at Elle Blonde we’ve found it. Think neon script lettering, faux flower walls and cakes so cute even Mary Berry wouldn’t stand a chance!
If you’re not familiar with the Great British Cupcakery, Bakery & Parlour then you’ll want to head to their Instagram double time. Nestled below the iconic Tyne Bridge on Queen Street, this pink paradise is fit for, yes you guessed it. A Queen.
With a brand new look, the Cupcakery hosted a launch event and we headed down to check it out. Located vibrantly on the corner, if you take a stroll to the Quayside (which is a five-minute walk from the city centre) you’ll end up passing GBC. Don’t walk on past though, make sure you head on inside to the family-owned (and run) parlour.
