The Primrose Bakery, Covent Garden - London

The Primrose Bakery is quite famed for their special swirl iced cupcakes and their many cupcake cookbooks that are sold in all shops. They have two actual shops, one in Primrose Hill and the other in Covent Garden. We visited the Covent Garden shop which is a sweet little shop a few streets from the main square with a some tables to sit in.

We've visited the bakery a few times before to take cakes away, and mum even attended a cupcake decorating class, but we hadn't had chance to get a cake and sit down. As it was mum’s birthday we decided to get a pot of tea and sit in. As I was paying for our two chocolate cakes, my treat, I sneakily asked the girls if they could put a candle in mum’s cake. After quite a while waiting for our cakes mum got impatient and asked if we could have them, turns out they didn't have a lighter and told mum this much to her confusion. Why did she need a lighter? They had put the candle in the cake anyway so she soon cottoned on.

After the candle debacle we sat and ate our cakes blissfully sipping our tea. My cake was lovely, there was just the right amount of chocolate buttercream and the sponge wasn't too dry. The decoration was Primrose Bakery’s famed swirl with a little icing flower on top.
If you are looking for a pit stop on your tours of London definitely try the Primrose Bakery for a cupcake!

  1. Lovely little review, I haven't visited Primrose Bakery but I have one of their cookbooks and absolutely love it. Their cakes are delicious (even if it's me baking them). Will definitely have to treat myself to a little day out and try one of their specials soon!

  2. I've been to their Covent Garden shop a couple of times and have always been rather disappointed. The cakes are on the dry side for my tastes but I adore the decor/styling.
