Eat This Now: Hummingbird Cupcake

By Jackie Fender on September 2, 2013

Corina Bakery is a delectable little bakery with a classy café like setting serving up Tacoma favorites such as Valhalla Coffee and Mad Hat Tea. Though both of those are reason enough to visit, their selection of housemade baked goods is absolutely exquisite. Corina specializes in specialty cakes, handcrafted pies and cheesecakes with a large selection of gluten free and vegan options for those with dietary restrictions.

Corina Bakery is open today until 5 p.m. I highly recommend you leave your abode right now and indulge in Corina's Hummingbird Cupcake ($2.80). This moist little morsel of goodness is a delicate spice cake teasing with bits of banana, pineapple and walnuts throughout. The cream cheese butter cream frosting adds a lovely richness to each little nibble. The sprinkles and hard candy butterfly on top are a cute little touch that only adds to the guilt of my decadent splurge.

Pair with an Americano and you've achieved perfection.

HUMMINGBIRD CUPCAKE, open today until 5 p.m., regular hours 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Corina Bakery, 602 S. Fawcett, Tacoma, 253.627.5070.
