Crumbs and Doilies Cupcakes from Tryum

CupcakesFor those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter, you might have missed the fact that I was lucky enough to win a box of cupcakes!

There’s an awesome website called Tryum, which recommends fab places to eat in London. Just Tweet/email them if you want to know a good place for eating XYZ, and they’ll give you a recommendation. Their food features are really fun too!

They ran a Valentine’s competition for Crumbs and Doilies cupcakes and I was lucky enough to win! Being single, this was an excellent Valentine’s treat!

When I took a trip to Crumbs and Doilies Covent Garden stall to collect my cupcakes, I got very excited and you can see why…

All in a row...

Later that evening it was time to tuck in, although these cupcakes are almost too beautiful to eat! (I said almost!)

Enjoying my cupcakes a little too much...

I enjoyed them all, but my favourite was the chocolate cream cupcake, which was lovely and moist and, of course, chocolatey! However, I’m also developing a worrying  obsession with Red Velvet. My friend linked me to this article Everything You Need To Know About Red Velvet, and it has dangerous sayings such as “A red velvet cupcake makes the heart young again and wipes out the years.” Uh-oh, I better eat more!

Thanks to Crumbs and Doilies for making such gorgeous cupcakes and thanks to Tryum for running the competition!
