This cookbook is a classic. The cupcakes are fool proof, the brownies perfectly gooey, and you can't go wrong with its carrot cake guaranteed to make your stomach rumble. --The Independent
The Hummingbird Bakery is the destination bakery for Londoners with a passion for great cakes. In this irresistible book, the chefs from the bakery share their recipes for a delicious range of 60 bakes, from deliciously light cupcakes with pretty buttercream frosting to moist chocolate layer cakes and zesty lemon meringue pie. Hummingbird recipes not only taste great but also look spectacular - without resorting to fussy recipes and hours in the kitchen. The chapters include Cupcakes, Cakes (including loaf, layer, ring and cheesecakes), Pies, Brownies and Bars, Muffins and Cookies.

When I do find the time and occasion to whip up some cupcakes or a cake this is the first book I grab and flick through for inspiration.
I have most of the Hummingbird Bakery books, the recipes are well written and turn out well with minimal fuss which is why I have purchased this copy for my daughter in law who is keen to start baking but is a novice. I’m sure she will love it as much as I do.
I baked the Lemon cupcakes twice, the Banana/pecan muffins and the moist Carrot cake which tasted amazing and got compliments from everyone. To get a healthier result I would suggest reducing the amount of frosting used per recipe otherwise you will end up with the dessert being super sweet.
I've made quite a few of the cakes and have always received compliments about them. My only minor quibble is that the cakes are generally too sweet for my family's taste. I have started to reduce the amount of sugar and have found them to be much better. Some reviewers have criticised the results of their efforts but if you use the correct size tin and follow the recipe properly I don't see how you can fail.
