We’ve tried a couple of cupcakes from Hummingbird Bakery, and they’ve all been quite good.
Their red velvet is famous, and it deserves to be so – it is moist and rich. Their green tea cupcake (a Wednesdays special) is also a winner. In fact, the green tea cupcake is definitely A’s favourite of all. Perhaps the only criticism is that the icing is really heavy and decadent. You can distinctly taste the butter (and sugar) in the icing, and it really does make the cupcake quite sweet.
We ordered a chocolate cake from them for LM’s birthday, and it was much larger than we expected. It was so tall that it took quite some effort to cut into it. Once again, the icing was really sweet, but the cake itself was excellent. It was the spongy kind instead of the creamy kind of cake, which was just the kind of cake that LM likes.
