Those of you who watch food channels on YouTube should be familiar with Cupcake Jemma from Crumbs and Doilies.

Last Saturday when I was in London before my 4-weeks traveling began, I went to Crumbs and Doilies in Soho.

The shop was smaller than I thought and the flavor selection was very limited. Perhaps it’s different in other Crumbs and Doilies shops but I was pretty disappointed in the selection. I personally like the classic flavors like red velvet cupcake (but they had none of those), and to be honest I tend not to be too adventurous when it comes to food.

I chose the Lemon Mess cupcake because citrusy flavors never disappoint… but apparently the Buttered Popcorn cupcake is really good!

Someone, please explain to me the point of these tiny chicks in Easter…

The regular-sized cupcakes were 3.25 pounds each which is, in my opinion, very pricey for a cupcake (150NT for a single cupcake!!!)…

But! The cupcake was really delicious. Like, really. The cupcake itself doesn’t have the citrusy flavor so I’m guessing it’s just a regular vanilla cupcake, but there’s lemon curd filling inside the center of the cupcake. The tanginess of the lemon curd and the moist vanilla cupcake make up a perfect balance.

I would recommend cupcake lovers to try out the cupcakes in Crumbs and Doilies. Maybe there are better cupcakes that are not overpriced like the ones here, but I would probably indulge myself with these treats again once I go back to London.

They also have tiny cupcakes that are 1.65 pounds each so you can get a couple of those to try out different flavors!
