In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the only Hallmark holiday between Christmas and Easter where we get the excuse to

eat as much sweets and baking as we like, we thought we aught to send you and the kiddies on a hunt for some tasty

cupcakes, valentine themed if you like, from our Top 5 Cupcake Shops in London:





Buttercup Cake Shop: After writing an article on Buttercup Cake Shop a few months back, we couldn’t help but

mention them again, with a huge variety of original cupcakes, you really can find just what your sweet taste

buds are looking for. You can eat in at the cafe style bakery in Kensington or grab a bite while enjoying your

indoor shopping at Westfield Shopping Centre.






Primrose Bakery: Cute as a button retro decor and yummy baked goods makes this bakery ideal for an afternoon

snack break. You can visit their two locations in Primrose Hill and Covent Garden. They also supply for

Selfridges Food Hall, Fortnum and Mason, Tom’s Deli, Fresh and Wild, Liberty and Shipp’s Tearooms too…

so you can grab one while out and about too!






Candy Cakes: With a store front that looks like it might belong to Strawberry Shortcake herself and a slogan of

Coffee, Cakes & Shakes just shouting to the sweets lover in you, Candy Cakes is more than a yummy stop.  You can

visit Candy Cakes in Covent Garden Piazza, Kingly Court, Goodge Street and Monmouth Street.






Hummingbird Bakery: With an exterior that looks reminds you of a bakery you might see in fairytales and a lavish

interior, complete with velvet chairs, you can really eat your cupcakes in style. You can visit Hummingbird’s two

locations in South Kensington and Notting Hill.







Treacle: With authentic and impressive original ceramics from the post-war era mixed with modern designs, this east

end bakery is the perfect place to enjoy some good old fashioned tea and contemporary cupcakes.
