After a hectic Saturday painting my kitchen a gorgeous shade of light blue I felt I deserved a treat so headed up to Columbia Road on one of the nicest days of the year so far. When I got to Cake Hole I was upset to see how busy it was so pootled off to Treacle instead and got a box of cupcakes - 4 for £7.50, with a mini one thrown in for my lunchtime treat! However as I was leaving the market I spotted the back entrance to Cake Hole and a free seat so I went in and ordered myself a cappuccino and a vanilla cupcake. I love how the lady behind the counter asked me if I had a specific colour choice of frosting!!!! A woman after my own heart - the colour of frosting makes a difference you know!!!

Today I popped to Whitecross Market and after a coffee from Coffee@Whitecross (who make the finest coffee in London) I had a wander through the food market. I was trying to be good and although I stopped at Netty Poskitt's stall and admired her gorgeous cupcakes I resisted, but then I saw Big John's stall and the lovely cupcakes above and my temptation crumbled. I bought the two cupcakes above - a chocolate banana and a strawberry flavour. I also got a chocolate coconut kiss and a triple chocolate brownie and he gave me some money off which is always nice :) I had a good chat with Big John as well and he was absolutely lovely and was worried I wouldn't enjoy his cakes....how wrong he was! The cakes were FAB! Really nice and soft, with lovely tasty frosting, utterly fantastic and I shall definitely be back...I have to go put John's mind at rest, its not that I plan to buy more of his cakes ;)
Oh yeah and the marshmallows which I think he made himself were gorgeous too and melt in the mouth. As were the biscuit/kiss and the brownie :) As Manny said - he was in cake heaven!
If you've read this blog before you'll know how much I utterly love Buttercup Cake Shop in Kensington.
I popped in there last week and bought the fantastic array of cupcakes above - picture three and four show Fantasy and Banoffee and picture four shows Sticky Toffee and Chocolate Purist. They were all melt in the mouth, sugar rush fantastic!! Although the Fantasy looked fantastic it didn't taste as good as their vanilla purist which and seeing as it was a Vanilla Cupcake I thought it would - however it was still lovely, looked great, but I just prefer the more vanillaesque Vanilla Purist.

On my day out to Hummingbird I also purchased a couple of cupcake items.

Last weekend I received this gorgeous cupcake shopper from the Cats Protection League that I ordered a few weeks ago. You can buy it here for the bargain price of £9.99 - they also have some other cupcake goodies for sale including this rather spiffy mug! So go buy some and help a little kitty have a better life!
