Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes!!

I love a good cupcake – who doesn’t?! When I think of top cupcakes, I automatically think of The Hummingbird Bakery.

There’s something about your own personal mini cake in it’s own case where the topping is as good as the cake itself (if not better!)

We even chose to have cupcakes rather than a big cake at our wedding – and it was made by the perfect combination of my wonderful mother who happens to be a master in the kitchen and a recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery cookbook. Yum yum! Needless to say of the 120 cupcakes made, there were none left by the end of the night – note there were only about 45 guests, greedy greedy!

Anyway, I digress.

Back to the point. I love a cupcake. Most people I know love cupcakes. So imagine how exciting it was when one of last week’s deliveries was – yes, a box of cupcakes!!

Made by my sister’s friend Gayle, the cupcakes looked absolutely amazing, which you can all see for yourselves but they also tasted great. The frosting wasn’t too sweet and the fondant decorations were tasty too (they can sometimes taste a bit soapy but not these).

Gayle bakes at The Hummingbird Bakery but in her free time (where on earth does she find the time?!) she bakes her own creations with imaginative and realistic decorations.

As most of you know, I work in travel PR so these cakes were travel themed – my entire office struggled to choose favourite designs!

If you’d like to get in touch with Gayle to order cakes for a birthday or special event just drop me a line and I’ll happily put you in touch – lots of people are jumping on the baking/cupcake bandwagon but Gayle is a pro with a heck of a lot of skill and talent so I’d highly recommend her.
