Hummingbird Bakery is to open its first site outside the London area. 

Specialising in “authentic American cupcakes, cakes and desserts”, Hummingbird Bakery opened its first branch in London’s Notting Hill in 2004 and has since launched a further five branches across London in South Kensington, Soho, Spitalfields, Islington and Richmond.

It also has a franchise presence in the Middle East, with two branches already operating in Dubai “and further launches planned”.

The opening date for the Guildford shop has yet to be confirmed, and “more information will be available soon”, a spokesperson from the company told British Baker.

The bakery has said it would be hosting a surprise giveaway to celebrate the launch.
