Not one for those on a diet then? It might be calorie laden, however, this naughty but nice treat was actually originally created as a London Fashion Week special (The May Fair being the official hotel of LFW), but proved so popular with fashionistas in need of a pep up between catwalk shows, it’s now a permanent fixture on the May Fair Bar’s menu

A shortcut route to a sugar high? Absolutely. Choose your tipple of choice – a Peach Iced Tea perhaps, or a Peppermint Tea Martini (a little like alcoholic, melted ice cream) – and your cupcakes will be picked to match. If you opt for the Caramel Espresso Martini, for instance, you can expect chocolate-smothered cakes and maybe a chocolate-dipped strawberry on the side, after which, believe you me, you won’t sleep for about a week!
