That time of year is upon us once more to deck the halls with lots of cupcakes and invite our friends at Pines and Needles round to make our bakeries a haven of festive cheer.
The kilted delivery team at Pines and Needles, perhaps most famous for giving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle their Christmas tree, also provide fresh trees, mini trees and wreaths to The Hummingbird Bakery every year.
Nothing makes our Christmas Cupcakes (decorated by hand, just like our trees) look quite as inviting as a real Christmas tree. These beautiful trees are hand selected, freshly watered to keep them full and luscious and they look even better next to a tray of our tempting Chocolate Orange Cupcakes…
Along with irresistible Christmas Spice (the ultimate Christmas cupcake made with mixed fruits, spices and creamy chai frosting) and Gingerbread (a warming gingerbread cupcake sponge with a cool swirl of lemon cream cheese frosting), Chocolate Orange are the limited edition Specials we have in-store and online this Christmas.
Want something made for sharing with carol singers or lucky reindeer visitors? Try our Christmas Mini Cupcakes in a gift box of twelve hand decorated bite-sized cupcakes for baking that’s brighter than a box of fairy lights.
Brand new layer cakes come in two new flavours and one very special design this year. Make our Christmas Chocolate Orange Cake or our Christmas Ginger Cake your centrepiece dessert this festive season. Or for classic flavours you simply can’t resist, put our Christmas Red Velvet Cake or Christmas Unicorn Rainbow Cake on your wish list to Santa.
In need of a gift for a keen home baker? Take a sleigh ride over to our Gifts and Books section for baking gifts aplenty and bestselling cookbooks galore, all available to order from our website for a budding Hummingbird Baker. You can also buy vouchers valid for one year from any of our bakeries to set someone up with their favourite freshly baked cakes and desserts.
Don’t stay Home Alone being a Grinch this Christmas. Join us in-store for some authentic American recipe Christmas baking this festive season. We have enough fresh bakes, barista coffees, cosy festive cheer (and warm ovens) to melt Scrooge’s heart!
