“Thou shalt eat red velvet cake before you die” should have been one of the commandments. Especially if it’s from the Hummingbird Bakery.
Now, I’m on a sugar free, alcohol free AND wheat free gig this year (yes, you did read that correctly, it’s for a whole year) but I wanted to buy a lovely cake for Naomi’s birthday. She helps look after all my clients, so it seems fair for her to be rewarded with delicious cake on such a special day!
There is a new branch open in Soho on Wardour Street, and there is a massive difference to the Portobello branch where I’ve been a few times before. NO queue. Granted, I was there at 10am, but it was nice not to have to push through a horde of tourists to get to the cake.
Naomi was ecstatic to have such a delicious cake, as was the rest of the office who coasted through the afternoon on a red velvet sugar rush buzz.
