Valentines Day with Hummingbird Bakery

With Valentines Day on the horizon, what better way to spend it than with a great big cake? Show me a cake and I will probably love you forever, especially if it is a cheesecake!  I was lucky enough to work with The Hummingbird Bakery for this post and cheesecake is never going to be the same again!

The Hummingbird Bakery, if you have never heard of them before, is an American-style bakery which was founded in 2004 and its aim was and still is, to bring the authentic taste of American home baking to London. The company opened its first branch here in London on Portobello Road in Notting Hill and since then has launched a further five branches across London in South Kensington, Soho, Spitalfields, Islington and Richmond. It also has a franchise presence in the Middle East with two branches already operating in Dubai.
The Hummingbird Bakery landed in Notting Hill in early 2004 to become the home of quality American baking in London. Today it has six branches in London and Surrey and is famed the world over for its delicious cupcakes and other freshly baked sweet treats and desserts.
For Valentines Day, we all get into the habit of buying a card, a present and if you are anything like my work colleagues, spending hours over the phone and on whatsapp discussing where to take your better half for dinner. For me, well I am just as happy at as I am out and about but the idea of sending or giving someone a cake really appealed to me as something a little bit different but just as amazing.

The Hummingbird Bakery has quite a choice for Valentines Day treats, whether you are wanting cupcakes, a red velvet cake, whoopie pies or a cheesecake, as I opted for, there is something for everyone, every budget and every dietary requirement and prices start at just £3.25.  The Red Velvet Valentines Cheesecake (£19.95) that I chose serves 4-6 people, or just me and was as delicious to eat as it was to look at.

This Cheesecake smells just incredible too, as soon as the bag arrived, the freshly baked scent was wafting out through the box and I couldn't wait to tuck in.  The biscuit base was delicious and crumbling and then with the cheesecake middle itself, not only is it the most beautiful bright red, but my gosh is it creamy and everything a cheesecake should be and should taste of!  On the top we have a butter cream frosting with some crumbs and the sweetness of the frosting with the sharpness of the crumbs and the cheesecake literally is an explosion to your taste buds in the most perfect of ways.  Literally the best cheesecake I have ever tried and now I don't think I could try another and it matching just how perfect this one was!

This cake can also be personalised, but you do need to give at least 48 hours from time of purchase for it to be ready and if you order before 4pm then there is the option of a next day delivery, but you will need to check for delivery in your area first.

The cake almost never survived thanks to one fur ball who noticed the brightly coloured bag and hopped straight in, thankfully, I had removed the cake and its box only seconds earlier!

  8. I had no idea they did cheesecake, I always think of red velvet cupcakes when I think of the Hummingbird Bakery. If the cheesecake is half as good as the cupcakes it will be awesome! Mich x
