The Hummingbird Bakery in London is cupcakes heaven: a pastry shop exclusively dedicated to the art and crafts of cupcakes baking.

Located in the lovely South Kensington, destination to many museum and art lovers, The Hummingbird is also a coffee and tea room, inside and outside, to enjoy all year long.

Luckily for us gluten free eaters, there is also a range of gluten free cupcakes available to shop & taste.

I splurged in the Red Velvet cupcake: deep red vanilla cake with a light taste of chocolate, topped with cream cheese frosting.

I also had the more traditional Vanilla cupcake: fluffy vanilla sponge cake with a light buttercream vanilla frosting. Shall I say how good they were…!

All cupcakes come in a beautiful box that makes everything more precious and beautiful to me.

In the shop they sell the book “Life is sweet” in case you might love creating your own cupcakes wonders and much more.

The other good news is that at the Hummingbird they can also make gluten free cakes for special events if you order them in advance.

Life can be definitely as sweet as they say.
