Review: Chocolate cupcake from Ella’s Bakehouse stall at Covent Garden market
October 28, 2009 by Little Miss Pudding
When I spied this beautiful cupcake at the Covent Garden markets one weekend, it was love at first sight. He was tall (icing-wise), dark and very handsome. And he even came with bling (well, edible purplely glitter on top). I left my husband at the oyster stall and made a beeline for him straight away.
But it was all a facade – as soon as we locked lips, I discovered he was actually a dull, vanilla cupcake in disguise! Even his gorgeous spirally icing top was a bit of a waste of dessert stomach space – it was a bit hard, and not as gooey and deliciously chocolately as I’d pictured in my vision on the way to the stall.
My dessert rating: 3 out of 10.
