Hello everyone! I recently got to attend the opening of the Cuckoo's Bakery in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh. I'd heard a lot about this bakery before but their Dundas Street Bakery was always on the other side of town for me and I just had never had the opportunity to go before. The new bakery, opened on the 18th of April, is a lot closer to me and I can see it becoming a regular spot for me! The original bakery was opened in 2011 by Vidya Sarjoo and Graham Savage who both moved to Edinburgh to follow their dreams and start a bakery. The bakery is called Cuckoo's Bakery because they were told by their friends that they were cuckoo for doing it. Well those friends can eat their words(or cake). Because they are now certainly very successful. 

When I arrived at the bakery the event was already bustling with a great atmosphere ! The owners of the bakery, Vidya and Graham, were also there, chatting to people and answering all their questions. The staff were so bubbly and friendly, I think that's really shown in the last photo. There were lots of goodies around to sampled. And I definitely sampled. They had mini white chocolate and raspberry cupcakes, scones, salted caramel and hazelnut brownies, mini sticky toffee pudding cupcakes, scones and a caramel shortbread crunch bar. I tried everything but the scones! My favourites were the sticky toffee pudding cupcakes. We were also offered a full size cupcake to take home with us. I decided to go for a strawberries and cream one and it did not disappoint.

You can take your cupcakes to go or sit in and I think I'll definitely be returning. Seems like such a nice place to go to for a catch up with a friend. They also sell coffees, teas, soft drinks and milkshakes. The milkshakes sound amazing as they are made with Mackies ice cream!
