Social Cake Eaters
Doughnut, cupcake or meringue? That is nothing less than what was being decided today. Doughnuts from the somewhat smug artisans Bread Ahead in Borough Market versus the way too French Aux Merveilleux de Fred of Old Brompton Road. Plus some token cupcakes and whoopee pies from HumDrumingbird Bakery.
10 innocent people sat down for afternoon tea, unaware that they were to decide the fate of these baking enterprises. Tea was handpicked loose leaf 2nd Blush from Tea for Two, again from overpriced Borough Market.
The results: Bread Ahead pipped Aux Merveilleux. Hummingbird got crushed.
