It’s been a while since I posted a Holy Cupcakes entry but I figure so long as it’s only little and often rather than every week like I was doing initially it should be OK right? So when I was ridiculously early for last months #LondonBookClub I figured I’d pop in past Bea’s of Bloomsbury for a quick cuppa and a cupcake to pass the time and I’m so glad I did as it is such a cute little place! With a motto like Life is Short, Eat More Cake you can’t really go wrong can you?
The Bloomsbury store is the original Bea’s location but they have two other stores in Farringdon and St Pauls as well. This one is really comfy and more like being in your own sitting room than at a cafe which is great if you want to just hang out with friends and catch up over a cup of tea!
I was a very naughty blogger and forgot to take a picture of the entire cake selection they had on offer because as soon as I saw that they were offering a special rainbow cupcake in celebration of LGBT month I just knew that was the cake for me! Doesn’t it look beautiful? The tea and cake set me back £5.00 so not the cheapest snack but not the most expensive around either.
It was a light vanilla sponge cake with a zingy and creamy lemon buttercream topping. Just delicious and absolutely perfect with my pot of earl grey tea as well. I was in the store for almost an hour right up until before closing and I never felt like I was being hurried or rushed which was lovely especially seeing as I was there on my own.
The geniuses as Deliveroo have also teamed up with Bea’s to offer delivery! Yes, you read that right, you can get gorgeous cupcakes delivered right to your door for when you need that ultimate cake fix. Brilliant!
