Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds beckons anew, baking a fresh batch of creative treats for June.
Earlier entries on Hummingbirds: May 19 & May 28.

This month's special: wasabi cupcakes, to complement Hummingbirds' wasabi macarons. With a wasabi-infused white chocolate frosting to top a banana-flavored base, this one is deliciously quirky enough to breathe new life into the old cupcake fad. Timid customers can choose the chocolate cream cheese cupcake instead.

The latest assortment of macarons is also marvelous, especially the flavor-packed triumvirate of peanut butter, caramel & Earl Grey tea.

Garden Cake: a flourless dark chocolate variety, lusciously lined with Chantilly cream & cranberries and aromatically topped with toasted nuts.

An eye-catching rainbow-patterned cake, similar in taste and texture to a red velvet. There still isn't a name for this cake, although Hummingbirds is taking customers' suggestions (which range from 1Malaysia Cake to Gay Pride Cake).

Oatmeal carrot walnut cake, for a relatively healthier option. Moist and hearty, but not as rich as Hummingbirds' other offerings.

  2. tng: heheh, 'gay pride cake' is actually my friend's suggestion, but we don't think it'll end up being used. 'rainbow cake' probably sounds tasty and tempting enough :D

  5. Gay Pride Cake? That has got my vote! :D

    ReplyDelete
  6. Lfb: at this rate, it might just win by a landslide! (of course, the bigger question is whether everyone who votes for that name would also actually buy/eat that cake) :D

  7. Yes, well. It is a tad colourful... :P

  13. i'm surprised the rainbow velvet cake hasn't got a name yet since it's been around for a while now

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nicotinegum: ooo, not sure if u mean it's been around in the world of desserts for awhile already, or been around in hummingbirds specifically =)

    ReplyDelete
  15. if it's the latter, you would already know right?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nicotinegum: true ... unless you've been frequenting this place more than me, and you saw it first earlier! :D but ya, there's already a 'rainbow red velvet' cake in existence, but the one here is not quite the same, since it doesn't have the layers of cream cheese or white chocolate in between (ok, a minor difference, but I guess it still makes the cake look and taste different) :D
