After getting through some technical problems we're finally back up and running and I'm able to access the website again, which is always a plus. I still have an oven and I'm looking forward to getting into Christmas baking soon.
Probably one of the best known cake places in the city is the Hummingbird Bakery. Their tasty American style treats can be found in several locations all over London. Let's have a look at their bakery in Notting Hill.
A weekend morning in London is best started with a stroll along the flower market on Columbia Road.
This is where you'll find Treacle. With so many bakeries on the itinerary I couldn't eat cake anywhere I went and therefore can't recommend what to pick when those sweet cravings hit you, but I really enjoyed pottering about this charming little store. I fell in love with those gorgeous cake stands, which I had only seen on pictures before. Unfortunately they weren't on sale but it was nice to admire them up close and personal.
If you prefer things a bit quieter, you might want to call in during the week when the market isn't in full swing.

Before calling in here for a quick browse..
It never rains but it pours, there is another one hiding around the corner.
Taking pictures of other people's cakes is a bit creepy but if you zoom in from far
away, you can get away with it.
My last port of call a few days later, I stumbled upon just as my stomach decided it was time to
grab some lunch.
An interesting place with a modern loft feeling to it, and a selection of mismatched vintage furniture downstairs. Not sure, if I fancied that in our living room but it does work in here.
Even the bar along the wall, which reminded me a little of a hairdresser's, seemed right at home.
London has so much to offer and I wholeheartedly agree with Samuel Johnson:
When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life
