    Entering Bridgend McArthur Glen Outlet, a pink van catches the eye [November 2011]. It looks like an icecream van, but has a display of decorated cupcakes . The owners are prepared to keep your purchases until you have finished shopping.
    The cupcakes can be purchased individually or in a box of six for £18.
    The cakes are delicious, but I found the cream topping too rich. It would be better if the topping were deecreased.

    What to buy: carrotcake cupcake, chocolate cupcake

    What to pay: £18 for 6.

    The Rhiw Centre: Try the Centre

    The Rhiw Shopping Centre, right in the town itself, offers undercover shopping with around 22 shops many of which are famouse High Street names, plus a brilliant indoor market. This should be your first port of call when shopping in Bridgend. The town is often mentioned as having too many charity shops and mobile phone stores. I would agree with the too many mobile phone stores, but the charity shops are a real pleasure to browse around. Amazing bargains can be found in them if you know what you are looking for.

    What to buy: Do try the indoor market and buy locally made 'Faggots' and local meat and vegetables.

    What to pay: As little as possible, but don't confuse price with value

    Cakes for Celebrations: a chocoholic's heaven

    by uglyscot Written May 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This lovely shop is in Veritys Court, a charming little haven off the main street. It shares its location with Oxfam, a bicycle specialist and a craft shop.
    The cakes we saw were amazing.There was a 3 teir wedding cake with what looked like black snowflakes on it, that was most unusual. Their main speciality is Belgian chocolate cakes. And the shop is filled with shelves of chocolates - not the normal brand names, but chocolates wrapped in gold paper, dark chocolate, shiny and just inviting you to pop one in your mouth.
    In the end we plumped for the ice cream- coffee, mango sorbet,and lemon were all delicious.

    What to buy: Chocolates

    What to pay: It all depends on what you choose, but a bit more expensive than unwrapping a Mars Bar!
