Anyway, safe to say that as opposed to feeling thoroughly rested and filled with interesting knowledge and a new found enthusiasm for our capital city, I am instead exhausted and thouroughly broke. Too many expensive hot beverages and cakes were needed to see us through the bitter weather I think.
As promised though, a couple of the highlights of my little trip:
The Hummingbird Bakery (Wardour Street)
This was everything I expected it to be :) Rows and rows of pretty cakes and full of bright cheeryness the minute you walk through the door! Just the antidote to a miserably cold day. The only thing that was a shame was the seating capacity inside, we were lucky and found somewhere but I can imagine having been very disappointed if we hadn't!
I think I spent about £14 on 2 cupcakes, 1 carrot cake and 2 coffees in here.
So, here are a few pics:
|Red Velvet Cupcakes - beautiful!!|
|My Red Velvet Cupcake, again, just lovely. The frosting was indeed as the saying goes 'The icing on the cake'. The colour is just for effect but it definitely adds something to the eating, ,such a special looking little cupcake :)|
|Me snaffling said delight.|
|I'd like this in my kitchen.|
Sadly this was a short lived affair, we turned up 5 minutes before they were closing (which to be honest was something like 07:25pm!) so we didnt really get to take much in. There was also a rabble of 'boystrous' children clambering everywhere when we got in there too so we dashed in, grabbed our goodies and went with haste! Again, it was small in here and not much room, but it still looked so inviting in there. We got 4 little cupcakes :)
|We got some of the little cupcakes to the right there.|
|Again, nice and so sweet (in both senses) but worth £5...?|
