The Hummingbird Bakery

I have many favouite places in London but The Hummingbird Bakery is one of the best. I've been to the shop on The Portabello Road and the one in South Kensington (just round the corner from the Tube) and both had a que that went out the door and snaked right down the street. If that isn't proof of their genius then I don't know what is. They have a mouth watering array of cupcakes and gigantic, three layer cakes. They best, however is their famous, Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese icing. Bliss!

I brought these home for my boyfriend, who is an even bigger fan than I. They're not in bad shape considering they were hauled around London, on the tube and Nation Express back to Edinburgh.

Visiting Hummingbird is an absolute must if you're ever in London.

P.S. This is my first scheduled post. I hope it works.


  1. Hmmm cupcakes. I really want to visit The Hummingbird Bakery one day. I might visit London with friends over the summer. They've got a recipe book coming out in March that i've preordered so hopefully I can recreate some!

  2. Hi Helen,

    That may well be the best news I've heard so far this year.

    I'm off to pre-order it now. I can not wait!

    Thanks for the heads up xx
