Bollocks to baking: Lola's Cupcakes

After running an event in Selfridge's Food Hall earlier this week, it was inevitable that I was going to buy something on my way out. How could I not?! It was actually Lola's Cupcakes that caught my attention this time and as they were reduced because it near closing, they were too good to resist.

And I'm mostly impressed. I had a chocolate one with the yummiest and most chocolaty frosting ever. It actually tasted of real chocolate, which was a novelty. But Jenny from The Style PA and I shared our box, which meant she got the Oreo one she'd been eyeing up. I bet that one was really tasty.

The vanilla cupcake I had last night wasn't brilliant (although I know it would have been better if I'd polished it off the night before like I wanted to). But honestly, there was just too much icing for me. The pink icing was nice, and very very pretty, I just can't eat that much whipped up sugar. Although I'm all for edible glitter, can we have more of that please, cupcakeries?

I like Lola's but I just don't think they were the right cupcake for me. I'm treating cupcakes like Cinderella's glass shoe at the moment. There must be one that fits. If that means I have to try every single one in London, so be it.

Lola's satisfied our sugar cravings, and the man at the Selfridge's counter was lovely, but I wouldn't pay full price for these. They're usually £9.99 for four, but we paid £5 instead. If I happen to be walking by late at night again, I might just be tempted...


  1. Girls... you need to check out the new Lolas cupcake cafe in Selfridges foodhall... opened yesterday! Tx

  2. I'll be back in the Food Hall for another event shortly... but I think there's a couple more stands I want to try first... looking forward to it already.

  3. There's a lot of cupcakes to be tasted at - this Monday.

  4. We're planning on entering the next one if we can!

    We've been too busy getting afternoon tea ready for Sunday... there's only so much baking we can do in a weekend!

  5. Guys - try Sweet - their cupcakes taste of the flavours you buy and they are ever so light and fluffy! I've ordered from them and cannot find any cupcakes which are better!


  6. I have to say I just love cupcakes, I cant wait to try Sweet Couture.

  7. I think the best in London are from Bea's of Bloomsbury or Hummingbird. Lola's are just very big, and their tiny versions are just icing (almost no cake). I wouldn't recommend them.

  8. Nope the bestest cupcakes are from they do cocktail cupcakes and they are wicked!
