Despite the on/off rain showers there was a great turnout to the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook demonstration and signing. One fan travelled all the way from Watford for the day having seen it online. She had already bought 5 copies of the book for her friends, has tried out most of the recipes herself and said she was delighted to meet Tarek who kindly went through her favourite recipe, (the red velvet cupcakes) and wrote down some of his secret tips!
The demonstration went very smoothly (except for the slight hiccup when a funny smell emerged from the oven and on further investigation the team discovered the operating instructions had been left inside on the top shelf and were cooking alongside the cupcakes!) Everyone clapped when Heath iced the first cupcake with an impressive swirl and deft flick of wrist!
The team brought mini cupcakes with them for the crowd to taste which were very popular.Tarek signed and dedicated lots of books for happy cupcake lovers and all-in-all a fab afternoon was had by everyone. Keep an eye on our website for more Hummingbird events happening soon across London.
