While Summer 2012 in the UK probably won’t be remembered for scorching hot weather (certainly not in Edinburgh!) it will be the setting for many iconic events in the British calendar. Cuckoo’s Bakery on Dundas Street have devised a range of seasonal specials guaranteed to keep customers happy all summer long.
Even if it raining cats and dogs outside, these summery and uplifting treats will make you feel like you have just had two weeks of perfect sun!
Strawberries and Cream – a cupcake homage to the classic Wimbledon fare. Delicious fresh strawberry sponge topped with vanilla buttercream, fresh strawberries and meringue.
Summer Fruit Smoothie – classic vanilla sponge filled with a raspberry and kiwi coulis, topped with banana buttercream – with all this fruit, surely this cupcake is athlete endorsed?!
Pimm’s – a royal union of orange, peppermint & Pimm's sponge with a lime and Pimm’s jelly filling, crowned with a strawberry cucumber buttercream.
Lemon & Blueberry Cheesecake – a summertime favourite with a Cuckoo’s twist. Lemon, blueberry and white choc chip cheesecake sponge with lemon cream cheese frosting.
Lychee and Lime – take your taste buds on an exotic vacation with a lime sponge cupcake filled with lime and lychee curd, topped with lychee buttercream.
Pistachio, Lime and Basil – pistachio and basil sponge with a zingy lime and basil buttercream.
