Heaven sent cupcakes!!!!









I don't believe in angels but if I did they'd be working at Angel Food Bakery in Brighton sprinkling their fairy dust into the frosting I'd imagine!

After a recommendation from fellow cupcaker Consumed by Cake I'd been trying to get to Brighton for a few months now to check out Angel Food and finally made it on Halloween! And it was worth the wait!! We pretty much headed straight to the Bakery when we got there for a cupcake and a coffee as it was freezing (any excuse!!!). When we walked in it was quite busy, with people enjoying a cuppa and a cupcake AND with the smell of cupcakes baking!!! The place smelt GOOD!! I had a red velvet and Manny was persuaded that one was enough and had a chocolate cookie cupcake! My red velvet was up there in the top tasting and from the frenzy of scoffing next to me I know Manny enjoyed his! At this point I was a little disappointed as the only Halloween cupcakes were the display only however my frown was to be turned upside down later...

We resisted the temptation to scoff some more and had a good walk around Brighton for a few hours before heading back to get some cupcakes to take back to London! (You didn't really think we'd just have two cupcakes? Especially as this was our wedding anniversary - an excuse to eat cake if ever there was one!!!).

When we returned there was quite the queue (this place is popular!) and they'd replenished their stocks, including the Halloween cupcakes! Wuhu!! We got two devil cupcakes which were chocolate with cream cheese frosting (my memory has gone, I blame the cold drugs I'm taking!), a double chocolate for Manny and a vanilla for me! Excuse the pics of these being a bit squiffy but so were we after several drinks in the Evening Star before the last trian home! After a lot of Kriek nothing beats a yummy cupcake!

These were definitely some of the best cupcakes I've tried and if I lived closer I'd be a regular visitor! The batter on each cake was really moist and the frosting was to die for - I could've slapped the woman next to me who sat carefully removing her frosting before eating the cake...WHY?????!!!! With frosting this good its just sacrilege to waste it - especially in a place with such a heavenly name!!


Thanks Consumed by Cake for alerting me to this place! I'm definitely going to try and make it to the farmers market to try some of your cakes asap!

Glad you thought it was worth the trip! I went the day before halloween. They didn't have any halloween themed cakes except the ones in the window, so I had to make do with a vanilla to gorge myself on...

That was one of the nicest cupcake places we've been to. The whole day was great of course, our anniversaries are always special xxx
