Mid Week Treat – Cupcakes from The Hummingbird Bakery
pilgrimage is the right word for our little jaunt, because the Hummingbird Bakery is not just any bakery. It’s a sacred place if you’re a lover of food, and I most certainly am a lover of their delicious cupcakes!
I treated myself to one of their special edition cupcakes – the Cherry Cola Float – and the infamous, wickedly good Red Velvet Cupcake.
All I can say is wow! The Cherry Cola Float cupcake really tasted of cherry cola! It was smooth, full of flavour and frivolous with its glacé cherry perched on top of a creamy cloud of frosting.
Today I had the Red Velvet cupcake after my lunch, packed into this adorable little take away carton! I can’t help but scoop up the velvety smooth cream cheese frosting topping this deep, dark red cake. The cake itself is light, fluffy and a wonderful satiny sponge, and the vibrant red colour makes it feel extra special and decadent!Luckily the recipe for this treat is in the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, so I’m going to have a go at making some little delights at home.
