With autumn here and winter fast approaching, it is a good idea to bundle up and treat yourself to something sweet. Although it can be hard to relax in a busy city such as London, the aesthetically pleasing bakeries below might make up for that. So without further ado, let's get started!

Primrose Bakery

Pastel goddess, Primrose Bakery, has an interesting selection of cupcakes, which they decorate thematically for each holiday/event, like the rest of the bakeries on this list. They also have a little bunny door stopper thingy, which scares the living crap out of me every time I enter that goddamn place.

Maître Choux

They are all about them eclairs and you won't leave disappointed. Not because it is guaranteed that you will love their taste, but mostly because of how beautifully they are presented. They come up with original designs and "tastes" for specific events. For instance, for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's wedding they came up with a limited edition eclair, which in my opinion was the best one they had. They also sell choux & chouquettes which are heavenly and now I am hungry.

Crumbs and Doilies

They sell cupcakes and cakes, they have a cutest little bakery in Carnaby, and I swear every single member of their staff is attractive. But here is what makes them different. They offer two sizes of cupcakes: small and big. So if you are on a diet or know that you won't be able to finish the thing, viola, problem solved. Not really, but they are good and if you can, you should try some.

I have a love and hate relationship with this one.

Pros: their interior is stylish but still chill, their staff is super nice, EVEN UNDER PRESSURE, their dreamcakes constantly change, so you get a lot of different flavours, etc etc etc.

Cons: Them dreamcakes are too creamy and you might not be able to handle them. Advice: if you happen to visit the place, order a drink with your cake. Or else you might not feel so good. Another con, which is not really a con because it can happen everywhere, but their shop is almost always filled with people. If you have hard time being surrounded by a lot of humans in a small space but really wanna go there, then visit it in the morning.

Additional fact: They also have a basement floor which is mainly used for thematic afternoon tea's. You will have to visit their website and book your table from there.

I have never been there myself, but it looks so good I wanna cry. I am low key scared to go because this place is so popular among, literally everyone, that I am pretty sure it will be super crowded. But hey, I haven't been there yet so all I can say is that it looks pretty.
