The Hummingbird Bakery

After drooling all over my Hummingbird cookbook, two of my friends and I decided it was about time that we took a trip to the big city, to check out The Hummingbird Bakery for real.

My friend Ben went for a Rocky Road Cup, and my friend Kate went for a Red Velvet Cupcake.

And I went for the Cheesecake Brownie.

A rather hungry and excited Kate went for cupcake number two... The Carrot Cupcake.

The brownie was pretty heavy, so filled me up for a good while. However, I decided, as I had come all that way, that it was necessary to get a "cake-away".

I took home a Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pie and a Black Bottom Cupcake.

My Black Bottom Cupcake got a little squished on the way home...

But it still tasted INcredible. I think it may be my favourite treat by Hummingbird, as it's dark and rich and not too sweet, with two treats combined into one! (Cheesecake top and chocolate bottom)


  1. Wow - Can't believe i've not heard of these before. I may have to take a little detour here next time i'm in the big ciy!

  2. A dream place! Now, I am drooling and crave those goodies...



  3. Humminbird are amazing!! So yummy!! I tried out the Ham and mushroom savoury muffin recipe in the book (pics on my blog)...i was so impressed, they're delish!!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love hearing from you.
