London trip would not be complete without trying out the bakeries, patisserie and cafes that build up the streets and alleyways of this royal city. This has been one of my goal in that trip as I am fascinated reading and following baking and cook books from famous British chefs and bakers as well as those baking shows out there in different food channels. And of course, some movies would also depict of London as having plenty of bakeries where different breads abound. I have been seeing this baking book called “The Hummingbird Bakery” for quite a whille and from the photos in that book, the cakes and cupcakes all look heavenly. So I decided I would not leave the city without getting my hands on their famous cupcake and savouring them.
Luckily, on one of our trip to Nottinghill (“it’s amazing how you can speak right through my heart….” remember that?) lol… The Hummingbird Bakery is sandwiched between thrift shops and I was excited to have seen it. Right away, we decided to go in and buy some.

The scene was already mouthwatering and so I had waited no time to buy and try it. I got a Red Velvet and Carrot Cake Cupcake. I must say that the former stood out for me and I must also say, that so far, this has been the best Red Velvet that I have ever tried. The cream is milky and not too sweet, the cupcake itself is also moist and full. Something that I would really buy should I get a chance to come back again.
