Mostly I like chocolate cake and brownies but this does not preclude me from having the occasional caramel tart, croissant, piece of chocolate or what have you.
Whenever I go to a new place I search out, or try to, the best bake shop. London is no different. Since my arrival 4 weeks ago I have been to more than 20 sweet shoppes and I was looking for a way to keep track of them all. I am not a master blogger but I do often search my blog as I would a diary to find out where I have been and I thought perhaps dedicating a page to the places I have visited might help me keep it all sorted.
You can click on the link to reach my post on each for more info about the day, the place, the sweet.
So here goes…
Hummingbird Bakery, Islington, very good brownie
