Violet Cakes Mini Vanilla Cupcake
In the heart of Hackney lies a small and discreetly placed bakery, Violet Cakes. With just the right amount of rustic feel, the team churns out some of the most delicious cupcakes, loaves, and coconut macarons. Not to mention the odd honey roasted belly of pork at the weekend! Whilst you sit and devour your taste buds with Violet's treats, you can enjoy a familiar view of cake baking by Violet themselves - as the kitchen is all open for you to feast your eyes on! 
Violet started out as a little stall on Broadway Market in 2005, and soon expanded to a bakery in East London, it is managed by California girl Claire, who also works as a talented food stylist on the side. An occupation that gives all of Violet's visitors an immediate certainty that they are perhaps getting the most delicious bakery style food in London. 

I have my AMAZING, slim, slender and hilarious colleague Jess to thank for reminding me about Violets! We were having our daily baking related gossip 'sesh' and she happened to pull this one out of the bag. I'm no doubt going to trust her flavour insticts, she is a pro baker/decorator after all! 
Less bum licking, more bakery licking! A bakery well worth visiting if you ever get the chance! I had a taste of the carrot cake, mini Vanilla cupcake and coconut macaroon, the latter being my most favourite. It was caramelised around the outside so that when you bit into it you had this crunchy and sweet shell, you were then presented with this soft, gooey coconut-syrupy ball of absolute p-l-e-a-s-u-r-e! Violet gets a ten out of ten from me, great job ladies!
