I'm just crazy about shops that only sell cupcakes. Sitting inside munching on the fluffy goodness is my idea of paradise. For me cupcakes exude happiness and life is too short so why not just have one!
Sweet Couture is one of these rare oases of cakey pleasure in London where I usually go when I'm craving a bit of sweetness! This little boutique bakery on New Row St. sells the most delicious and stunning cupcakes along with usual sized cakes. It uses the best ingredients and no preservatives. Each little treat is hand-decorated with tasty cream-cheese frosting and topped with cute sprinkles. You can even have bespoke decorations which are perfect for a baby shower or wedding.
Their range of flavours are traditional English inspired recipes and American favourites such as the awesome Red Velvet. Look out for seasonal flavours and their monthly special wheat-free cupcakes as well. My favourite flavour is the carrot cupcake; it's rich and moist with hints of cinnamon, ginger and fresh carrots, topped with zesty vanilla cream-cheese frosting. Super tasty!
If you go to New Row Street in Covent Garden, make sure to pop into Sweet Couture and get yourself a little sweet treat and a nice cup of coffee and have a seat in their cute shop (If there's any room!) and enjoy the heavenly cupcake(s). To see their locations, click here.
Have a sweet Tuesday!
