Cuckoo! Spring has almost sprung, which means here at Cuckoo's HQ we're perfecting lots of new flavours to transition your taste buds after winter's feasts. Think snowdrop-white icing, pops of yellow buttercream and fresh, zingy fillings!
Why not start some new spring traditions - make the most of the extra daylight and join us for a brunch date, or dust off your bicycle and pedal over to see us for a cake-away on your lunch break. All this extra sunshine means it's almost picnic time, and our haberdashery contains the perfect puds!
We loved sharing Valentine's Day with you... our team of bakers worked through the night to make thousands of cupcakes, not to mention layer cakes and all of our bakes! We had a great response to our anti-Valentine cakes, too. Thanks Sara and Lauren for your love letters about the first time you tried a Cuckoo's cupcake. It's a lifelong affair, isn't it, Sara! And Lauren, stories like yours always make us giggle - we're sure you're not the only one who's stashed a cupcake safe from prying eyes!
Hot on Cupid's heels, Sunday 15th February was no day of rest, as we celebrated our 4th Birthday by giving away free babycakes to all the lovely people who visited us.
Behind the scenes here, the party is never over. Mother's Day is on Sunday 15th March and we'll be creating the mother of all celebration boxes, whether it's for your own dear ma or a pal who's a mama. So think outside the chocolate box and go Cuckoo instead. It's that day of the year to show appreciation to all those mums out there doing a great job!
Then, on 17th March, we'll be baking up a storm and making other cake shops green with envy with our St Patrick's Day special.
Did you know...? Folklore has it that it's possible to balance an egg on its end on the first day of spring, also known as the vernal equinox! Given the amount of eggs we get through each day, that could be quite a sight...
It won't be long before the cherry blossoms are blooming in the Meadows again, showing that nature has her own sprinkles! Of course, it wouldn't be spring without a little spring cleaning. This year, we've decided to go one step further. Keep your eyes peeled around the city for a new Cuckoo popping out to say hello in the not-too-distant future... or follow us on Facebook to stay in the loop!
See you soon! Cuckoo for now! x
