When I think of hummingbirds, I have never thought of cake. My main memory of this little, amazing bird is when I actually got to hold one. It had flown into our front window and fell on the ground. I gently picked it up, feeling sad that it was probably gone and then it woke up, and flew away right out of my hands.
I can understand why this hummingbird cake is named after these miraculous creatures. They are light as air and very sweet creatures flitting around from one place to the next. This cake was just the same! Light, sweet and as adorable as cakes come. I love the banana and pineapple combo!
