Shoe guru Patrick Cox has set his sights on something other than leather soles. His Soho bakery Cox Cookies & Cake (with French patissier Eric Lanlard) opens this week and is an edgy, subversive twist on the pastel confections most cupcake companies offer up. The tiny shop is just a little bit disco, with it's neon pink and black colour scheme, sequin walls and a 'I Keep Haunting You' sign created by Tracey Emin. The cakes are equally as hip, with Salvador Dali lips and skulls and cross bones iced on top. A cupcake with your drag queen? Why the hell not!
