I baked some cheesecakes last week, one specifically for a friend, Yusuf for his birthday. It has been such a long time since I baked my last cake, so this has proven to be a good re-start!
Speaking of cakes, I still can't forget the yummiest cupcakes I had in London during my last trip there in autumn. There was a day I where went to the Portobello street market to get some ornamental knick-knacks for my house, besides to meet up with my Malaysian friend Izuan, who's currently working in London. I had my brother tagging along, and Izuan introduced us to The Hummingbird Bakery.
I tried a few slices of their cakes and loved their Red Velvet cupcake the most. Naturally, I packed some to take home, too. Miam!!!
The night before that, I had a small birthday celebration for myself at Costa - just me and my brother. Having caffeine till late at night over some desserts from Harrods was such a simple, yet memorable celebration!
Then, there was another day when we went to Soho for dinner, and had some yummy frozen yoghurt from Snog. I think Snog serves the best frozen yogurt with a great choice of condiments. I luv their shop - it's so chic!
Last but not least, to satisfy my sweet tooth, the mandatory gelato and ice cream - a standard feature on my travel itinerary! You can read my review of the best gelatos I had in Greece and Milan.
Cupcakes stall at Coven garden market...
And the best gelato mention goes to Oddono's Gelati, found at Oxford Street's Selfridges!
A day before we left London for Paris, I saw this display below at St. Pancras International station... OMG, wish I can eat them all! miammm!
