Afternoon Delight

I know the time of year for indulgence is supposedly behind us, but a sweet treat every once in a while is what makes life worth living! If cake is your vice, The Angel Food Bakery in Meeting House Lane makes the most amazing cupcakes ever! All their cakes are freshly baked and beautifully decorated on the premises by their very friendly (and stylish) staff. With loads of flavours to choose from, it'll take a fair few visits to get through their menu so why not try a few of their miniatures? If you have a party or wedding coming up, the bakery takes orders for personalised batches, allowing you to pick the flavours and decorations suitable for your occasion!
If you're unable, however to get to the bakery in Brighton, another wonderful cake place, The Hummingbird Bakery has three locations dotted around London. They also have a cookbook which is well worth a look at if you fancy a go at it yourself! If you're lucky enough to be in possession of this book already, try my adaptation to their Lemon Cupcakes...
Follow the recipe but as the cakes are cooling, make a lemony drizzle out of lemon juice and icing sugar- heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds so it's all syrupy. Into warm cupcakes, make a small 'X' incision about a cm deep in the top of the cake and pour in about a teaspoonful of the lemon drizzle (or until it begins to overflow). Ice as directed and enjoy! x
