Stopped into this little bakery during our visit to the Portobello Road market. This area must be famous for cupcakes. This bakery had what seemed liked dozens of different flavors. We went with the salted Caramel and it was very good.

Delightful bakery on Portobello rd, stocking the most awesome chocolate cakes you can find, not sure how I stopped eating only two. Well worth buying a box with several and seeing how long they can last!!! Fast & Friendly service.

Popped in here whilst browsing the nearby market. There are so many cupcake options that it was hard to chose one. I opted for the pink frosted vanilla cupcake and it did not dissapoint

If you love 'red velvet cake' then don't bother going anywhere else! All their cakes here are amazing but I don't think they have something better than the red velvet! It's actually the best red velvet cake I have tasted anywhere!!! Just delicious <3
