The Hummingbird Bakery

Today I treated myself to a couple of cakes from the Hummingbird Bakery in Angel and *oh my god* it is true what they say: their cupcakes are delightful!!! Moist, fluffy, flavoursome, delicious!!! I had a carrot and a red velvet, both excellent choices. Carrot was wonderful right from the beginning, the icing perfectly smooth and not too sweet, the red velvet needed a little time to develop a flavour but then it was a subtle chocolate sensation mixed with something else.

The cakes are relatively pricey considering their small size (particularly compared to the massive ₤2.50 bombs from Peyton & Byrne) but they are REALLY nice. A small bonus but probably also one of the reasons for slightly steep prices is the fancy packaging. Well, see for yourself and treat yourself to some cupcake love if my photos convince you ;) xox

PS: They have published a couple of fancy baking/cooking books.
