Cuckoo Bakery opens its second Edinburgh store in Bruntsfield TOMORROW (Saturday April 18) at 10am. This follows the success of its first cake shop and tea room in Dundas Street, which opened in 2011.
The Bruntsfield cake shop will specialise in layer cakes as well as offering Cuckoo’s famous cupcakes, brownies, scones and a wide range of tray bakes. It will reflect the bespoke style of the Dundas Street shop similarly featuring vintage furniture. The Bruntsfield shop, however, with its retro décor and 1950s style coffee machine, aims to offer customers a nostalgic feel.
The team at Cuckoo’s Bakery uses only the highest quality locally sourced ingredients to craft the most imaginatively designed, flavoursome cakes. With their bakers in Leith starting work at 1am, all cakes are freshly baked daily, by hand, setting them apart from much of the competition.
Cuckoo’s Bakery is owned by Graham Savage and Vidya Sarjoo.
The new shop is located at 116 Bruntsfield Place. On Wednesday 22nd April an invitation-only launch night will mark the opening of the new shop with goodie bags, cupcake and tea tasting sessions and the chance to meet the owners.
