Heinz team up with Hummingbird Bakery to launch ketchup and beans flavour cakes

We all know somebody who loves condiments a bit too much.

The one who drowns their roast dinner in ketchup, or eats lasagna with a squirt of salad cream on the side.

But are condiment cupcakes a step too far? Heinz has teamed up with the famous Hummingbird Bakery to create a range of cakes inspired by the beans manufacturer’s iconic products.

The cupcake flavours include ketchup, beans, mayo, salad cream and tomato soup – and we’re not sure how to feel about them.

The launch of the cakes this Friday is to celebrate the birthday of company founder, Henry John Heinz.

Each of the six Hummingbird Bakery branches in London is giving away 25 of the cakes for free, on a first-come, first-served basis. After that, you’ll be able to buy them for £3.45 each.

But do we really need a mayo flavoured cupcake? And how does a tomato soup flavoured cake even work? We’re not sure, but we’re definitely intrigued.

Heinz notoriously enjoy playing with their classic flavours. Only recently they launched their Saucy Sauce – a hybrid mayo/ketchup condiment. And plenty of people were excited about the launch of a Heinz Beanz pizza.

So will the quirky cake flavours satisfy the hardcore condiment fans? We will have to wait and see.
