Londonist Cupcake Throwdown


Cupcakes. In just a few years, Londoners went from having scarce few bakeries from which to purchase these little treats to hardly being able to walk down the street without catching a glimpse at all manner of food porn baked goods in the window of some tawdry storefront.

Well, we've decided to see which of London’s cupcake peddlers can hold their own in a Cupcake Throwdown! The competition is to happen on the 29th of May, when a crack team of judges will let their oh so sophisticated palettes determine which cupcakes are the most moistest … most delicate … most delicious and satisfying in London.

So far these confident and generous bakeries have committed to submitting their cupcakes:

- Bea’s of Bloomsbury

- Buttercup Cake Shop

- Faircake

- Outsider Tart

Do you frequent, work at or own a London bakery that makes awesome cupcakes? Get in touch ( by May 23rd a let us know if you’d like to enter the competition.
