I had intended to visit the original Buttercup Cake Shop in Kensington but when I was doing some shopping in Westfield I spotted that they had an outlet and saved myself the trip.
Despite it only being a small store I think this shop is the one that had the most impressive array of flavours to choose from which made picking one delightfully difficult. It didn’t help that my mouth was still incredibly sore and it was ridiculously hot.
I ended up going for the passionfruit cupcake and carried it home ever so carefully where I ended up falling asleep fully clothed before I could eat it… oh dear… I then forgot to take it to work so it was a full 24 hours before I actually tried it!
Despite the heat and the delay the icing was still intact with that hard outer layer yet still being creamy on the inside. The passionfruit flavour was incredible! I mean seriously it was amazing. The cake was a little dry which I take full responsibility for given than I left it out for 24 hours before eating but I don’t think it’s quite on par with the other cakes I’ve scored a three bats Batman rating.
