I used to be a regular, what with working in Notting Hill 4 days a week! It definitely didn't do my waistline any good, but who cares when food tastes as good as that!
After trying every variety of cake on offer, carrot, vanilla, lemon curd, and my favourite red velvet and black bottom ones, Hummingbird bought out an amazing cookery book! A best seller with insights into their world of cakes! I now regularly use this book and bake a range of goodies from it!
Here's a little teaser from it thanks to the Hummingbird Bakery website:
For those of you with special requirements, Hummingbird have also just bought out a new range of Gluten free cakes! I'm hoping that they may do some lactose free soon too!
Along with their three stores in London (Portobello Road, Wardour Street and Old Brompton Road), they have a 24 hour online ordering service for London too. They are also releasing a new cook book on 17th March 2011 containing 100 new, never been seen recipes! I cannot wait!
And for those of you looking for occasion cakes, book a consultation and see what fancies these wonderful cake makers can produce for you. I am loving the look of their giant cupcakes, and their wedding cupcake towers. I am very tempted myself for my upcoming wedding as this is by far my favourite bakery in the UK!
