So this week Bridget and I ventured to the other side of the Grassmarket and dropped into hipster bakery, Lovecrumbs! What makes it hipster? Possibly the piano come table, the shabby chic interior or the cushioned window seat? Regardless of what you think of hipster places, this place is totally laid back, very comfortable and… Read More Caketrails #3: Lovecrumbs
This week’s cake trail venue is Cuckoo’s Bakery! I am a big fan of the creativity that the bakers at Cuckoo’s put into their cupcakes. I’ve always said that this bakery really knows how to market with cake; and I firmly believe that if your product can do your marketing for you, you’re a winner.… Read More Caketrails #2: Cuckoo’s Bakery
At long last, the Edinburgh Cake Trail has begun. Myself and Bridget of Dear Baker are exploring Edinburgh for the best cake the city has to offer, and where better to start than award winning family bakery, Mimi’s Bakehouse.

But, when I opened the horrible package… Read More Carrot and Coconut Traybake

My school clearly wasn’t a forerunner in exciting science education. I vaguely remember applying iodine to show starchy material in biology, and I have a slight… Read More Mint Boulder Cupcakes
Hi all. Do you have that one friend who constantly changes their house about, moving furniture from one week to the next,and generally just never being happy with the ‘feng-shui’? I am that girl. Except I’ve been taking it out on my blog lately as opposed to my flat. I’m sure my neighbours downstairs appreciate… Read More Oh My Goodness What is Going On!
I decided to go for a walk today in the sunshine, but of course it began to snow really heavily as I was half way through my route…typical Scotland. Thankfully I had some peanut butter cookies to come home to! I do wish I had put a little white chocolate in these now, but I’ll… Read More Peanut Butter Cookies
