One of Georgetown Cupcake's special April flavors was a brand new one, called the Hummingbird. This cupcake is "Georgetown Cupcake's version of a Southern classic — fresh banana, pineapple, and pecan cupcake topped with a vanilla cream cheese frosting, chopped pecans, and a blue fondant hummingbird".
Since I've never tried a real Hummingbird cake before, I wasn't really sure what to expect with this cupcake. However, my expectations were pretty low after reading the description, since I generally don't like much fruit in my cakes. Especially something like pineapple. So... I think you might know where this is going, haha.
The cake portion just tasted really sweet and mushy, most likely due to the fruit inside. I did enjoy the pecan topping on the frosting because it added some texture. Overall, I think it was great that they'd come up with a new flavor that is v. different from other flavors they currently offer, but I'm just not a fan of this one personally. Have any of you ever had a real Hummingbird cake?
