Black Bottom CupcakeThe Black Bottom Cupcake, which is available from Cuckoo’s Bakery on Dundas Street in Edinburgh, was awarded the Regional Silver Award in the Best Individual Small Cake Category at the awards last week, which were hosted by Mich Turner MBE.

This cupcake has a delicious chocolate sponge base, dark Belgian chocolate chips under a rich baked vanilla cheesecake topped with cream cheese frosting; the cupcake is a firm favourite among regulars to the bakery and was certainly a hit with the judges.

Vidya said: “We have always known that our cupcakes are unique and special and now this award proves it. Our Black Bottom cupcake is one of our personal favorites and has always been a best seller and with chocolate and cheesecake in one go – it’s no wonder people love it.

“All our cakes are handmade even down to the intricate and quirky decorations which really help set our cupcakes apart from others in the capital and have even become a bit of a talking point among customers in store and on Facebook and Twitter.

“It’s been an incredible two years since we opened the store and this award win really is the icing on the cake and its puts the seal of approval on everything we do. Thanks to all our customers who keep coming back and spreading the word about our cakes – without them we would not be able to do what we do.”

Cuckoo’s Bakery offers a range of cupcakes, all baked fresh everyday with the process starting at 2am and includes flavours such as: sticky toffee pudding, red velvet and even an exceptional mojito flavor as part of its ‘cup-tail’ range.

Since December 2012, Cuckoo’s Bakery have been in partnership with high street retailer Waterstones to provide its full range of baked products to the new café in their Princes Street store. This milestone has further extended Cuckoo’s customer reach and has allowed the brand to move directly on to Scotland’s premier shopping street.

Cuckoo’s Bakery cupcakes are available to purchase fresh in store, which is located at 150 Dundas Street from Tuesday through to Sunday. Prices start from at £2.00 for an individual tasty treat.

Orders can be placed online at or over the phone on 0131 556 6224 for collection or delivery. Delivery is available for orders of a minimum of six cupcakes within the Edinburgh city bypass.
