Christmas Cupcakes

Anyone that knows me knows how much I have a sweet tooth and in particular cupcakes are a favourite of mine. I've often sent them as a gift rather than flowers and they never fail to delight!
The Hummingbird Bakery have some of the best cupcakes in the UK - they also have a great cook book which I use all the time. As you would expect their Christmas offerings are fabulous. From their Gingerbread cupcake (aren't those gingerbread sprinkles just so cute) to delicious cinnamon and raisin to the fantastic box of Christmas mini delights they would be a great gift for a drinks party - I would be so thrilled to receive a box of these!

Cox, Cookies and Cake is one of the newest patisseries in London and they have made a big impact on the cupcake scene. Owned by shoe designer Patrick Cox their designs are fun, sometimes shocking but always mouthwatering. This bauble one is just so glittery and fabulous and the chocolate brandy flavouring is definitely adults only! And I am totally loving this banoffee man cake - perfect for a boozy night with the girls!

 I love the decorations on the Crumbs and Doilies cupcakes - they are so pretty and there are loads of flavours to choose from including Earl Grey and Salted Caramel (Yum!)  Their boxes are so pretty - perfect for a Christmas gift or to cheer someone up!

Happy Thursday!
