I'm really not a cupcake fan and I went to the South Kensington bakery to have a coffee because they serve Illy which I love so much. Then I decided that let's try the cupcake (honestly I was in a cupcake place :) ) aaandddd the cupcake was solo great. Moist and soft and fresh and not too sugary. It was really really great.

I am not a cup cake fan, but this tiny hole in Portobello Road changed all that. And these are the only cupcakes i will ever have. there's no seating area - so it is just pick up place. make sure you stop by every time you visit portobello road

I ended up buying 6 or so cakes from this bakery on my visit to London. Great range, the Mud pie and Red Velvet cake were to die for!

Went to the South Kensington branch to get red velvet cake to take away. The service was friendly and the cake delicious.

I had seen the cakes on the website and the Rainbow cake really caught my eye.
I got to the bakery at around 4pm and there was 1 slice left, it was fate!
The sheer weight of the cake was surprising, but the texture was light and fluffy.
As it was such a large piece, it took me several days to finish it, but remained as fresh as the day I bought it!
The bubblegum flavoured icing was also a new taste for me, but complimented the cake well.
I just wish there was a bakery closer to me!

Thank Lucy L
