Bethany Claire Cakes

February 2014 A Plus MArket - Frankston

Once you’ve shopped up a storm and bopped along to the A Plus Market resident band, Fire & Theft, you can get some sustenance from our very own pop-up café!

Bethany Claire Cakes will be catering for us at A Plus Market this Saturday, 22nd Feb in Frankston. I can say so much about Bethany Claire Cakes but first of all I say – YUM!
logo
Bethany Claire Cakes is all about hand made small batch baking.
It’s local, fresh and delicious.

Beth will be bringing along a tempting selection of sweets.


I can’t believe how good her cakes look, I in fact wish we had taste-avison (that’s a term I’ve just coined to describe my desire to lick the screen and test these tasties now!),

But wait there’s more…..
We can have our cake and eat it too.
A yummy selection of light lunches will also be available, along with a selection of teas, some coffee and Beth’s own blend of Chai.

Get the girls together and come down on Saturday for some brunch, lunch or an afternoon tea.
