Hummingbird Bakery -Soho-


Have any of you ever seen the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook?



It's delightful, and is full of such yummy treats to make. I bought the book a few weeks ago after spotting it at work and upon finding out there were 3 bakerys in London, I pestered my boyfriend to take me.

So at the weekend, he and I took a trip Londontown, with the promise i'd let him look in a computer store if he let me go to the bakery. It wasn't hard to find, just a few minutes walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station. It was only small, but amazing inside :) Full of gorgeous cupcakes and brownies and layered cakes. I stood staring at the counter of cakes for a few minutes just trying to take it all in.

Having seen pictures of the cupcakes in the cookbook, I already knew which one I wanted
-red velevet-
and boy, it was lovely! light and fluffy, yet rich and just yummmm!


I felt cruel digging my fork into it and ruining such a beautifully crafted cake, but curious to see what all the fuss was about and hunger getting the better of me, i delved in to find a gorgeous rich red sponge

I did manage to let the boyfriend have a small taste, and he agreed that it was wonderful. Then an awful thing happened :P



It all vanished :(
hehe


Hummingbird Bakery = WOW
10/10


Has anyone ever been there? Which other cakes should I try?
I feel I MUST visit the other 2 bakerys, for the interest of research ofcourse :D

My first ever blog ^_^

Hi,

Welcome to my world,

I'm really not sure how to introduce myself. So i'll start at the beginning :)

My name is Laura, i'm 23 and live in Essex, England (just outside London)
I've been looking on here at some beautiful people posting reviews and pictures and i'd really like to be involved so here I am, trying to do that.

Everyone's pages look so cute, mine is the generic pink layout, so if anyone could offer me some help, that'd be great! I'm going to have a think about what kind of things I want to post on here, I'd like it to be as good as some of the other lovely people's blogs on here, im the hope of meeting some new friends to share tip with and have a girlie chat.


Maybe i'll start with a review?
I'm off to Lakeside in half hour, so i'll be on the look out for something lovely to tell you all about

(I say all, is anyone even reading this?)

If you are, do say hi :)

Laura Jane
