Stale Cakes! Buyers beware; three times in the past fortnight I've been sold stale patisserie by Fruit Cakes & Patisserie at 50 Kennington Road
. Each time have asked if freshly baked, been assured this is so, and gone home to in the hope of a delicious danish with coffee, only to have to bin the danish. Been too lazy to march back and demand a refund - so this morning tested the cake on the spot and, as usual of late, it was at least a day old. They refused to refund me and so - for the sake of 90p - lost a customer forever, plus I promised myself I'd warn others. So be warned. It's not the money, it's the principle. No on likes to be ripped off, especially in these cash-strapped times.
