Condiment cupcakes are now a thing...
The Hummingbird Bakery has teamed up with Heinz for a collaboration we didn't know we needed.
The Hummingbird Bakery has teamed up with Heinz for a collaboration we didn't know we needed: cakes, and condiments.
Yes, that means ketchup, baked beans, mayonnaise, salad cream and tomato soup cupcakes now exist.
The tomato ketchup cake is a Red Velvet with an added squirt of ketchup, which adds a bit of sweetness. It's topped with a cream cheese frosting.
We're not a fan of cold beans, but adding them to a cupcake make a carrot-cake like sponge. This one's topped with maple syrup frosting.
The salad cream sponge is topped with yet more salad cream, along with strawberries and balsamic vinegar, meringue, and chopped strawberries.
Mayo brings the moisture. This one's a rich chocolate sponge laced with mayo and a splash of buttermilk, topped with chocolate cream cheese frosting and white chocolate.
And the tomato soup cupcake is a bright red sweet ball of tomato, with a hint of basil.
The new creations are to honour and celebrate the birthday of Heinz founder, Henry John Heinz.
How do you feel about a condiment cupcake? Is it taking the Heinz love a little too far, or are you definitely up for trying them?
