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 hangover...pics 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.
