Old Shop, Fresh Cakes

La Mallorquina, on Puerta del Sol,  may be one of the oldest cake shops in Madrid, but its cakes are certainly fresh.

It has been a Madrid institution since it was founded in 1894 and its popularity shows no signs of waning.

Even getting close to the window displays can be a challenge.  I had hoped to get inside during my trip in March this year to try out the seasonal torrijas, but the place was packed, and I had to make do with reading about the Lady of the Cakestorrija tastings in Toledo.

For all you cake lovers, here’s a final peek at the window displays, and I’ll try harder to taste the wares on my next trip.

For the complete antithesis of this traditional shop, take a look at this modern, and very pink, method of selling cakes!
