London: Hummingbird Bakery

18 Jul

We actually chanced upon a Hummingbird Bakery outlet while traipsing through Portobello Road Market! It was a bonus since although I wanted to try its cupcakes, we didn’t have time to plan our trip around too many food stops. Hummingbird must be to London, what Magnolia Cupcakes is to NYC as it was thronged with people on a Sunday afternoon. You literally had to fight your way to the front of the counter to even order a cupcake.

Pretty wallpaper in the shop! Love the logo.

Since I was still really full from lunch and some of the flavours that I wanted were already sold out, I only tried the Red Velvet Cupcake (£2.50), which is one of its popular flavours. It was moist and the cream cheese frosting wasn’t too sweet. It was somewhere in the ok to nice region for me since I’m not a cupcake fan. Anyway, ~5SGD is pretty pricey for a cupcake, isn’t it? Still, it’s worth checking out for yourself if you’re in Portobello Market!
