Primrose Bakery cupcake review

Primrose Bakery vanilla cupcake in foreground, lemon cupcake in backgroundToday I wandered the streets around Primrose Hill and went to the Primrose Bakery cafe on Gloucester Road. I have been to the Covent Garden branch many times but was curious to see the original one and see how they compared. The Primrose Hill one is a little rougher round the edges in the nicest possible of ways.  It is on a very quiet street tucked away. As soon as we walked in the door, my friend noticed that the smell of cupcakes was exactly the same as the Covent Garden one and I agreed. All the tables were taken but we didn’t want to rush our cupcake and get a takeaway so we hung out by the cupcake gifts, Primrose Bakery lemon frosted cupcake with lemon decorationrecipe books and cards. Eventually we landed a table! I chose a lemon cupcake and my friend had the vanilla frosted one with yellow icing and multi-coloured confetti. See here for their range of cupcakes. Mine was delicious – the sponge was a teensy bit dry but there was so much yummy lemony frosting that it all worked out. They have lots of Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar magazines for you to browse over whilst you devour your cupcake slowly.  I loved the daffodils in jugs on the table – added a touch of spring on a cold May day and the place feels homely.  Whenever I go to Primrose Hill, I’ll definitely be making an excuse to detour via Gloucester Road…
