Cupcakes? Did somebody say cupcakes? Delivered to your door between the hours of 10am and 5pm? With prices starting from £1.90 per cupcake and a delivery charge of £9.50 for a minimum order of a dozen anywhere in central London (the map they link to on their website is the London Underground’s Zone 1)? That's what new wonder-business Faircake does. Nice.
What’s also nice is Faircake’s flavour variety. Londonist recently enjoyed a few of their gorgeous morsels and can report that the mango cupcake was delightfully fruity, the dark chocolate was just the right sort of decadent, the lavender was lovely and the lemon … oh the lemon (with a nice lemon curd centre!) … was tasty indeed. Of course, Faircake offers other flavours as well (and are already getting revved up for Christmas). The actually cake-y bit of Faircake’s lil babies was about as nice a cake-y bit as Londonist can remember tasting. The best cupcake in London? Hmmm … quite possibly yes.
And, oh yeah, we felt especially good when sampling Faircake’s baked goods. Faircake uses free range eggs, fairtrade chocolate and “butter, never margarine,” in their cupcakes. We couldn’t find evidence of any preservatives or additives (because they don’t use any). Such recipes may reduce the shelf life of Faircake’s product, but that’s all the more reason to devour them quickly.
