Lock up yer dentists! The ‘naughtiest vegan in town’ has pitched up in Brixton.
I’d been very intrigued about the work going on in the shop unit next door to Rosie’s deli. First a stall of cupcakes appeared one fine weekend, and a shop full of them soon followed. Oh yes, MsCupcake has gone from Greenwich Market straight into ours.
There are tons of new places opening in Brixton and I hope they all do well, especially this one. The staff are really, really nice. I’ve been in a few times now for a nosey, mainly to have a sniff at the sweet smell in there, look at their books and the ‘Lazy Susan’ cake stands they have. I’d looked at the cakes a lot. Then after a lovely bargain portion of £5.50 steak and chips over at the new place by Federation Coffee yesterday, it was time. I went in search of something cakey.
About a year ago I wrote about my quest for the perfect cupcake. And my, I have found it. The sponge really soft and light, the icing thick and buttery… MsCupcake’s vanilla really hits the spot. And it’s vegan. I couldn’t help wishing this had been around during my little vegan phase last summer. I probably would have spent all my pocket money here. And it would have saved me from feeling sick after all those weird marshmallow things I ate far too much of.
The cupcakes are £2.20 each and kick Hummingbird Bakery’s ass. I’m going back for more at the weekend.
