So a little birdie (tweet tweet) tells me is week is National Cupcake Week. Wahey, and what better way to celebrate than by sharing some of my favourite cupcake moments with you which is exactly what I have been doing over on Twitter.
I thought I'd share my thoughts on Cupcakes, if National Cupcake Week isn't a good time, then when is? I've always had a sweet tooth ever since I remember. I just can't refuse cake. Since moving to London 4 years ago I've experienced some lovely cupcake establishments that I am now very familiar with. Some of my favourties include Peggy Porschen, The Hummingbird Bakery, Bake-a-boo.
The reason I started my blog was having stumbled across this lovely book called Tea & Cake London at the British Library (I'd gone to do dissertation research). Since then I've been partaking in my own cake orientated research.
I dread to think how many cupcakes I have sampled during the past 3 or 4 years. It's been enjoyable and it's not likely to stop anytime soon. (sorry, actually I'm not sorry).
My love of cupcakes has taken me on many adventures during this time, I've sampled cupcakes in Dubai at Project Cupcake, where I've never seen such mountains of icing. I've also found cupcakes at markets and little stalls, like this one in Cambridge. I've also sampled vegan cupcakes at Ms. Cupcake and gourmet cupcakes at Flavourtown Bakery
I was also lucky enough to learn the art of cupcake decorating with Lady Berry Cupcakes
There's a little place in my heart for cupcakes, hence the naming of my blog, Morethanjustacupcakelover. I wanted it to mainly involve cupcakes as that's where I started off, but I didn't want to not be able to include other content, so I kept it nice and open.
And as it's turned out it's not just cupcakes, you'll find tea, coffee, brunch, afternoon tea posts as well as posts about London and travel further a field over. I hope you'll join me, I'll be the one drooling over endless pictures of cupcakes on Pinterest.
Thanks for reading and enjoy what's left of National Cupcake Week.
