An Edinburgh cupcake shop is getting ready to spread the love this Valentine’s Day by helping cupid strike his arrows with its own special sweet treat.
Staff from Cuckoo’s Bakery, will board selected Lothian buses across the city to hand out delicious Valentine’s themed cupcakes in the hope of spreading the love and encouraging sparks to fly between travellers on what is arguably the most romantic day of the year.
Owners Graham Savage and Vidya Sarjoo, hope that the cupcake handouts will encourage people normally sitting and looking out of the window, away from their fellow passengers, to pluck up the courage to get talking and spark a possible romance.
Graham said: “Valentine’s is meant to be a day full of romance, but the reality of it is many of us spend it doing really mundane ordinary things like getting the bus or going to work.
“Now thanks to our cupcakes, hopefully we can inject a wee bit of love and happiness back into this special day and by doing so spark some friendly conversation between commuters and hopefully even make some love connections.
“People don’t really talk to each other when they are on the bus even though they are sitting just a few feet apart from each other. You could be sat next to your future husband and wife and not even know it!
“How great would it be if someone was to find love on their bus journey to work, thanks to a conversation that stemmed from one of our cupcakes – definitely a romantic story to tell the grandkids!”
On the morning of Wednesday 13th February, staff from the bakery, dressed in their full Valentine’s gear, will make the surprise hand outs on bus routes in the city centre and hope to give out 100 love themed cupcakes over the course of the morning.
The team at Cuckoo’s have created six mouth-watering cupcakes for couples to enjoy this Valentine’s Day with favourites including a Red Velvet Cookie cupcake which comes complete with a heart shaped white chocolate chip cookie and Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake which says ‘I Love You’
