Bake-A-Boo. The name just works doesn't it?!
Combining youthful mystery with the promise of gluten free sweet bakes, Bake-A-Boo is not only cute by name, but it is cute by decor (and delicious in nature)!
Last Saturday morning I woke up with a migraine in the early hours of the morning, which meant I spent the entire weekend with a headache and just felt lousy. And as every good comfort-eater does, I drowned my misery in cake!!!!
And when I walked into Bake-A-Boo I was instantly uplifted not only by the promise of amazing-smelling baked goods, but by the thoroughly cheerful and sweet decor too!
I have had Bake-A-Boo on my list for a while now and so a leisurely stroll down to West Hampstead was the perfect amount of activity for my post-migraine haze.
I am pretty much open for trying all and sundry when it comes to gluten-free bakeries, but this one is on the "repeat" list for sure. It was such a girly retreat (made even more so by the bridal shower of millinery going on in the back tea room) and I just loved all the country chic details.
I tweeted ahead of time to make sure there would be some gluten free delights in store for me, I just knew my fragile self wouldn't handle that level of disappointment well, and I needn't of worried!
We tried all three of their gluten free cupcakes available on Saturday - lemon, blueberry and raspberry.
I like that they weren't insanely sweet, which seems to be some bakers answer to the gluten free problem, add more sugar!! They were perfectly cooked and to be honest, I wouldn't have even known they were gluten free (which is a funny compliment but a compliment none the less!)
We each had a favourite, which kind of worked out for the best, because there was NO sharing of Madeleine's lemon cupcake!!! Where has my savoury-tooth-baby gone!!
I'm sorry, who's lemon cupcake...
"But Mummy has to try it for my review honey..." hehe I'm such a lousy mum making my baby cry like that!! It was really good though, she has good taste!
And just to show what most of Pete's engaged and interested wife looks like while we are having these sorts of outings...such a lousy wife too!!!
But, it would be more lousy of me to not photograph and sample all the amazing gluten free baked goods at Bake-A-Boo because this way I can share the wealth!!
For a beautiful range of gluten free cakes in a beautiful setting, Bake-A-Boo is the perfect peek-a-boo bakery I've ever seen!! If you're looking for something yummy to do in London this weekend, I highly recommend a cupcake or two at Bake-a-Boo!
Psst!! If you are looking for a little more meg-made, I'd LOVE for you to follow along!
