Spring London Bakery Tour!!

Today my friends and I travelled to London to see Wicked at The Apollo Theatre and of course I dragged them along to a couple of bakeries!!

First stop was Lola's Cupcakes:

blackberry with cream cheese frosting

peanut butter

custard and cream

Lola's in Selfridges
It was hard to choose just one and in theory I didn't have to just choose one, but cupcakes unless you eat them right away don't really keep. So, peanut butter was the flavour of the day. I stole a bite of the other cupcakes, they were all very good too! I like the flavours and the cakes weren't cloggy or cloying. Really enjoyed it!

Wicked at the Apollo Victoria
After the show (my second time seeing it and it was just as good as the first time) we walked for about five minutes to Peggy Porchen's Parlour!! 

luscious lemon

jam cookie

vanilla chiffon

cherry macaroon

Me in front of Peggy's!
Peggy's was beautiful exactly what you expect a bakery to look like! Very pink, simple designs, and yummy cakes on display! I chose a slice of cake and the macaroon. The lemon cake was good not overly lemony, had just the right amount of tang to go with the sweetness of cake. The macaroon was good too!

Over all a very successful day if I do say so myself! It was nice to have a day out with the girls and no kids! We did spend a lot of time talking about our kids as that's what us mothers do, but it was good to be out and feel human again!! :0)

Check out my last London Bakery Tour where I visited Bea's of Bloomsbury, Hummingbird Bakery, and Outsider Tart on the Southbank market!
I still need to share my birthday cupcakes...they didn't turn out exactly how I had planned! That story will be coming soon....
