Yum! Yum! Yum!

Just the most fab cupcakes!

Oh! And I feel ancient I watched 'the Blues Brothers' and 'Repo Man'. In that very cinema when they first came out!

Your description of Old Brompton Road as "a cake wasteland" has to be my favourite quote this month. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face during a week of too many late work nights.

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to you from New York.

Both this post and its immediate predecessor give me such motivation to try to get on a plane sometime soon.

We do have major cupcake empori-yums over here, but they are not near the V&A.

I will have a look at the Hockney bio, and hope that my wonderful library will buy it. How I would like to get back to see that colorist's show.

Thank you for always giving me (and others) so much inspiration.

Date filled sticky toffee...enough said, I am off to camp outside and snaffle hot from the baking tray!

Dear Jane
Informative text, lovely pictures, as always. I am working on the Danish translation of Cake Days right now, so this is very inspiring. Plan to make a capital cake tour when I visit London in January.

i was given a Hummingbird bakery book last year. The recipes do no disappoint. Yesterday I made the lemon and poppyseed frosted ring cake; it looks and more importantly tastes fantastic!

I am a regular reader, but I want to thank you especially for the posts on bakeries and other places around London (which one won't find in the usual tourist info). I bookmark each post in anticipation of my next trip to London.

Your words and images of pastry shops in London make me want to hop on a plane. I will most certainly take a list of them with me when I visit England again.

Are pies really that American? I never realized...you might enjoy baking one (if you haven't already). Smitten Kitchen has the best crust recipe along with fabulous fillings, tossing sliced apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar will produce pretty amazing results. Thanks for the lovely cake posts!
