It’s the festive season and there are lot of baked treats being passed around. I got one from the hummingbird bakery and that’s what prompted to come here and explore the treasures at the hummingbird bakery. I love the theme of this bakery. Elegant with contrasting colors and flying birds. Their cakes are colorful and definitely make a statement from a distance. They sell american style baked items which mainly includes cupcakes, layer cakes, brownies, pies, cheesecakes.
They’ve got a big range of attractive cup cakes in categories such as season special, daily specials, handmade etc . It’s those thick rich frostings like butter cream, cream cheese, vanilla, peppermint, lemon, cinnamon and even nutella that make these cupcakes look and taste so good. I loved their pearl white cream cheese frosting. They were so pure and delicious. Brooklyn blackout which came with a chocolate custard frosting was definitely one for those chocolate lovers and it does try to black you out with it’s chocolate intensity.
They had 2 types of cheesecakes and I was really curious to try the chocolate cheesecake as it’s not available everywhere. I’d say after eating many times a newyork cheesecake, the chocolate cheesecake would help. The chocolate definitely dominates the cheese in taste for the chocolate cheesecake. I feel in the long run you would prefer to eat more often the newyork cheesecake than the chocolate version. But if you’ve never had one, you better try it cause it’s one of a kind and a trendy one today.
The whoopie pies were an attractive looking item. The outer crust is dense until you reach into it’s cream cheese filling. They do have a light chocolate sponge filled with marsh mallow butter cream known as chocolate whoopie pie. But to be honest when compared to cupcakes, cakes, brownies, cheesecakes around, the whoopie pie is the least attractive one to me.
They do serve hot drinks and my cappuccino definitely came attractive on the table. One of the happening cakes are their tower cakes and the prettiest cake I’ve seen would be their Rainbow cake where the inside would be multi-colored sponge layers lightly whipped. I just couldn’t stop staring at it 🙁 Also I’ve noticed during my time at the hummingbird bakery one of the most fast sellers in their cakes would be their red velvet cake which is a deep red vanilla cake with a light taste of chocolate, topped with cream cheese frosting. Atleast I would have seen 5 different people collect a full size red velvet cake. Guess the Christmas is in the air 😉 You can also order their cakes online at their website: http://ae.hummingbirdbakery.com. They do also have brownies and cookies which I would want to try next time 🙂
