Bollocks to Baking: Peggy's Cupcakes

At the Alternative Village Fete on the Southbank this weekend I made a new cupcake discovery: Peggy's Cupcakes. This roving, one-woman operation had set up for the day on Theatre Square, not far from its new patch on Bankside, where you'll next be able to sample the delights that Rosalind (not Peggy) bakes and sells for £2.50 a pop.

I went for a fashionable choice - a red velvet cupcake - and enjoyed it as I watched grown men and women throw themselves around on an astroturf lawn attempting country dancing (I think I got the better deal). The texture of the cake itself was more on the 'fairy cake' side than some cupcakes I've tried: a lighter, less cloying texture, but this felt just right for a fete and also helped balance the supersweet flavour of the whipped buttercream that was just the right consistency - set off with a cute little red rose.

The best thing about this cupcakery is that it has a cupcake van.


...just how much would you love to see that coming your way on a bad day at the office?
