It's been non-stop at Cuckoo's HQ this month. Seems that not everyone received our memo about positive spring vibes, though... sadly, our Dundas Street shop was broken into earlier this month. We weren't the only ones either; other shops in the area were also targetted. It's a shame to see such a spate of attacks on local businesses! But, as they say, the show must go on! We swept up the pieces and were back on our tip-top toes in no time.
There's a real buzz being generated around the opening of our new cake shop. From a mega chandelier to our second beautiful vintage haberdashery, our new space is well on its way to becoming totally, inimitably Cuckoo. We are delighted to be hearing such enthusiasm from locals in the area and can't wait to invite you in once renovations are completed. Follow us on Facebook to keep in the loop for our opening.
We've plenty more excitement to keep you going until then! Not least our blooming brilliant, rabbit-hopping, egg-nesting Easter cupcakes. We took a pinch of spring dew, a sprinkling of vintage nostalgia and a whole lot of joy to make our 2015 Easter range which we hope you love as much as we do.
From sea salted caramel to Bakewells reinvented snowballs to (yes, they're back...) Creme Eggs, they're just the ticket to keep the whole family leaping through the school holidays. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step and perfect to take along to an Easter gathering, they're only available until Sunday 5th April. Don't forget to order in advance to avoid disappointment... our ovens reached full capacity on Mother's Day and our Easter cakes are always hot property! You can place your order online or pop along to Dundas Street and peruse the haberdashery...
Around the blogosphere, talk has turned to the onset of sunshine. It's finally time to shed the layers and welcome that extra hour with open arms (and suntan lotion for the eternally-optimistic). We're looking forward to putting the tables and chairs outside at Dundas and we've given our milkshake machine a pep talk for the busy season ahead. You really can't beat an ice-cream milkshake and your favourite cupcake, sitting in the sunshine with a friend or a great read - and soon you'll have two Cuckoo venues to choose from, so you'll never be far from a moment of loveliness!
We'll leave you with one of life's big questions. How do you eat yours?
See you soon! Cuckoo for now! x
