It’s true what they say, good things come in small packages. Although I only discovered Sugar Daddy’s in Edinburgh recently, it’s safe to say that it’s stolen my heart and it’s my absolute favourite bakery in town. If you can get through this post without drooling and squealing with delight you clearly don’t have a soul!
Based near the Botanical Gardens, this little cafe does the most inspiring cakes in town. Offering a great selection of ‘regular’ – full fat and full of badness – treats as well as an epic range of cupcakes and tray bakes for our gluten free and vegan friends, a venture accross town is more than worth the trip once you walk through these doors.
At this point I can’t tell if I’m drooling more from the cakes or the interior decor!
Although they only have a small bar to eat at inside, they have everything from chocolate-tastic rocky road, birthday cake cupcakes, red velvet cookie sandwiches and beyond, all neatly dressed up with rainbow confetti and glitter cherries on top. And the best part? The vegan and gluten free cakes taste as good as they look! Be still my heart! Being so close to the beautiful gardens, this is a great place to pick up treats to go and have a picnic on a sunny day, that is if you can make it that far along the road of course. Every time I’ve been here I’ve had to buy one for now and one for later because I was having some kind of existential crisis when it came to picking what I wanted. Life is too short, buy all the cake!
Small but perfectly formed, it seems these birthday cake cupcakes were MADE to ride shotgun in my little figaro!
Can’t make it to town? Don’t panic!! They you can order get bite sized brownies, custom cupcakes and mini mouthfulls of joy ordered in bulk for parties, not to mention they do birthday and wedding cakes as well. I don’t think I’ve ever started planning an event just because I wanted to order one of everything, but here we are!
Here’s hoping they get so big soon they have to open another cafe, preferably next door to my house. So! Grab your friends and get ready to eat – once you’ve been to Sugar Daddy’s once, there’s no turning back…
