We've had an online makeover to beat the post-Christmas blues. We're dotty about our new website! Have you had a snoop around yet? Our coveted celebration cakes are now just a few clicks away.
Every day is Cake Day!
We love that every day is special for someone. Whether it's your birthday, your wee one's Christening or a just-because gathering, our scrumptious two-layer sponge cakes are sure to hit the spot.
Are you looking for a cake that gathers your guests close and makes them go, "Ooh", "Wow" and other happy noises? A tumble of fruit, simple buttercream or a showstopping Marbled Rainbow? Our artisan bakers have it covered, with optional gluten-free flour for smiles all round.
From the size to the message, we'll make your birthday cake personal and hassle free. You can collect in person or we'll deliver to your party's doorstep. We're delighted to offer FREE delivery for online orders of celebration cakes over £35. Add us to your bookmarks and tell all your friends!
Is your partner the bee's knees? Cue Cupid...
Valentine's Day holds a special place in our hearts - on 14th February 2011, we opened the doors of our tearoom for the first time. Our love affair with cupcakes began many moons before that, when Graham and Vidya first waxed lyrical over the possibility of baking quirky cupcakes for a living. As with all great encounters, the rest, as they say, is history!
We're especially excited about the arrival of our all-new, all-singing, all-dancing, all-awesome limited edition 2015 Valentine's Day range! Like all Cuckoo's creations, each of our six Valentine's cupcakes is freshly baked and adorned by hand. The perfect antidote to all things ordinary, they're guaranteed to get the message across! There's even the added bonus of a macaron! We've said too much, have a look for yourself!
Valentine's Day is our busiest of the year. Our bakers work around the clock all-ovens-blazing and staff play Cupid behind the scenes. Last year, we delivered hundreds of boxes of treats. Couples flocked to our cosy tearoom for a date with a cupcake.
Why not treat someone you love to a 2015 Valentine's cupcake, available Friday 6th to Sunday 15th February. Browse the haberdashery in our tearoom to hand-pick your favourites. They'll also be on sale at Café W in Waterstones on Princes Street and Harvey Nichols' Foodmarket. No excuse for missing out!
Or, you can order for delivery. Our Cuckoo-mobile is gearing up to declare your sentiments around Edinburgh on 14th February, from office desks to tenement blocks. Book early to avoid disappointment. All beautifully packaged and guaranteed to put a smile on the face of your Valentine. With a card handwritten by us, you can decide whether to remain anonymous or let your feelings known! Where will you send your Cuckoo?
Psst! If all this talk of Valentine's Day isn't bringing out your sweet side, we get where you're coming from. That's why we've created the anti-Valentine's cupcake. Keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook page...
Did you know...?
In Japan, women give chocolate to men on Valentine's Day. A month later, on 'White Day', men are supposed to return the favour with a gift worth three times the value. Come on people... order a Cuckoo's chocolate cupcake and get sharing with the man in your life for a Valentine's present that keeps on giving!
Do you remember the first time?
