How could I go to London and not visit the Hummingbird Bakery?

I found a quiet spot on a bench in front of a museum, people-watching as I slowly indulged in a cupcake. Midway, a middle-aged stranger took a seat beside me and we started chatting.
Don't talk to strangers, they say.
But how would you ever make friends if you don't? 

Good cupcake bakeshops are hard to come by. So while in London, I had to go see if it lives up to its name.

Their Famous Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (right)
The verdict? Delicate crumb, moist, sweet but not overly so. These cupcakes were good.

Yes, Hummingbird Bakery, you get a spot in my imaginary dessert hall of fame.
