Cupcakes, and whoopie pie for lunch at Hummingbird

On Friday we went along to the Great British Beer fest and I took the chance to pop into the Brompton Road branch of Hummingbird Bakery for a spot of pre-beer lunch, which would then be walked off by stomping up to Earls Court. 

As usual I opted for a pink vanilla and Manny opted for a chocolate and a whoopie pie  which he just couldn't resist! There's not a lot to write about Hummingbird that I've not said before - the cakes were lovely, moist and very tasty, the frosting to die for! They really should offer a frosting shot! As you can see from the top pic another cupcake was eaten as well - I couldn't resist a second one and opted for a carrot cupcake, which I don't think I've had from Hummingbird before and it was one of the best carrot cakes I've had - very rich, lots of fruit and nuts and a gorgeous frosting which didn't overwhelm the cake! 

We also got 4 to take-away to help with the post-gbbf will be posted in anther post! 

Finally, I know its not a cupcake but I highly recommend the whoopie pies! Manny allowed me a couple of bites and it was really tasty - like a cross between a cupcake and cookie held together with a really lovely middle frosting it was v.nice! I asked if they have them every day but the guy serving wasn't sure - he thought maybe only on Friday - Sunday so if you want one best to ring ahead I'd say - all contact numbers are on their website

Yeah, I can definately recommend the woopie pie, it was lovely, as were the cupcakes too. The slices of cake they had there looked awesome as well, it means we'll have to go back soon :)
