A cutesy cupcake shop in Covent Garden.

Cutesy, kitsch and overwhelmingly pink, this Covent Garden shop is basically the real estate equivalent of a cupcake. Unfortunately, the cakes themselves are even more cloying. The sponge here is dry and crumbly, and comes topped with masses of eye-wateringly sweet icing. And even though there are some exciting-sounding flavours on offer (Ferrero Rocher, raspberry chocolate and Kinder Bueno among them) every cake comes with either a plain chocolate or plain vanilla base. Take off the icing and it all tastes exactly the same. Zero points for effort, sweetheart. And that’s a cupcake crime.

Cozy cake shop tucked in the lower levels of covent garden plex, good snack break for London visitors. We enjoyed the black forest cake although it is super sweet! 


It's very sad to see a review from timeout that negative when you have most of people being in love with that place. I mean what does it actually mean for a page which supposed to be really objective and offering best options to readers  when they can't actually 'read' their own readers. The quality is incomparable , taste amazing and so fresh. So for all of you still wondering - definitely give it a try.

I'm not the biggest fan of cupcakes but this place looked so pretty I just had to try one! It's not easy to find very nice in the tourist-packed Covent Garden but these were a real success. I had a blueberry and a strawberry cupcake, both wonderfully fluffy, with a generous amount of topping. The designs are lovely too, and they have very nice seasonal specials. Very nice stop during an afternoon of shopping in Central London!


Had the most amazing cupcake with strawberry and meringue on top. The cake itself was amazingly moist too! Delicious :)


After lunch it is a must to have something sweet, and these yummy cupcakes are a perfect choice. With a lovely generous amount of butter icing and then biting into the cupcake to find a lovely surprise of jam, it really did hit the spot! 


Amazing blueberry cupcake. Very generous on the toppings. Highly recommended!


Lovely tasty treats. Generously top cupcakes with a moreish after taste...is one enough? Big choice to fit whatever sweet fix you are feeling in need of.


If you like me, and one of the main reasons you love a cupcake is the sweet butter icing then this is the place for you! I will happily work my way through the flavours, the cupcakes are tasty, light and full of flavour.
