My love of cupcakes started off at Hummingbird. And as of yet I haven't blogged about it - how has that happened?
It was fast approaching 3 o' clock and I was suffering that mid afternoon craving for something sweet.. According to my lovely book 'Great Cake Places London' is where afternoon tea originated. Sometimes only a cupcake will suffice.
We visited the South Kensington branch, arriving at about 2.30, which maybe a little early for afternoon tea. But the right time to arrive in order to get served quickly!
The shop had no queue (I've never seen this before) and just 2 groups of customers already seated. One couple inside and one outside. So this meant firstly we had the choice to 'eat in' and secondly we could choose where I sit.
For those of you who happen to frequent any on the London Hummingbird bakeries, you will know there is always a shortage of seating. I usually put his down to this chain being so popular that it's almost a tourist attraction. But I guess it's only the 5th January so everyone is still in full swing with their new fitness regimes and healthy eating.
Saturday's Special is 'Chocolate Malt Cupcake'.
Today I found the experience much more enjoyable, than previously, purely because we could sit in I enjoy our cupcakes. As cute as the packaging is I do enjoy sampling the cake at the bakery itself.
Until next time.. X
