London market stalls: Violet at Broadway Market
Riding on the wave of cupcake mania, Violet is a sunny stall with delicious baked goods at Broadway Market. Arranged on pretty vintage cake stands and plates, these sweet concoctions not only look gorgeous, but they are doubly delicious.
The generous swirl of sublime buttercream icing is the secret to these cupcakes’ success, with flavours changing with the seasons. On this mid-July Saturday, the buttercream selection ranges from rose water & nectarine to cherry; honey and lavender; elderflower with candied elderflower; chocolate; raspberry and strawberry. Prices are 70p for mini and £2 for large cupcakes.
Other treats such as fresh ginger and molasses cake, elderflower marshmallows, coconut macaroons, organic candied orange peel and chocolate chip cookies added an extra non-cupcake-y dimension to this lavish banquet of sugar. Sweet.
