My daughter and I are attending the Cambridge Clandestine Cake Club. I've been practicing my recipe.
Ingredients at the ready. Can you guess what kind of cake its going to be?
Chilli - chocolate orange cake. It tasted good, but needed more chilli! I will be taking my cake along on the 30th.

I also had a go at making Red Velvet cupcakes
Tasted very much like the ones from Hummingbird :)

Notting Hill

I spent a lovely sunny day yesterday taking the train down to London and having a potter around Notting Hill and Portobello Road. Ive not been before and loved it! Streets lined with grand white houses, avenues of pink blossom trees. People stopping and saying hello. Cafes on every street corner, the smells of food being cooked on market stalls. Vintage treasures being admired and sold. Then we came to the shop we had travelled all the way from Cambridge to see.........Hummingbird Bakery!

I could not believe it such a pretty shop all pink and brown, I was here :)) We lined up not knowing what we wanted, quickly decided it had to be a mix of 6 cupcakes. Much to hubbies disgust i did not let him have one until we got home and I could take photos before diving in!  Do you want to see?

My favorite was the red velvet.....Divine.
