Candy Cupcake opens its doors offering more than cake
We do love a new shop in Edinburgh, especially one that sells cake and sweets! Candy Cupcake opened its doors yesterday and we couldn’t resist paying them a visit today.
As you walk into the shop, you can’t help but squeal with delight at everything on offer. It’s not just confectionary and cakes here, there’s cake-themed decorations, party invites and a selection of cards for all occasions.
Once you’ve walked past the pick n’ mix section, the shelves are full of retro sweets and jars of old favourites such as kola cubes and sherbet pips. A range of Stewart Tower Dairy ice cream is on offer and as you get to the counter, a selection of freshly made cupcakes awaits.
As I headed out the shop, some popping candy and Love Hearts caught my eye as I returned to the counter to pay for the additional treats.
The assistants are friendly and took on board my request for Beer Pots and Chelsea Whoppers, but in the case of the latter, a supplier has got it in hand.
Well worth a visit.
