From the tree: Cuckoo’s Bakery on British Baker [Video]

Posted at November 11, 2011 by 2 Comments

Last weekend I visited Cuckoo’s Bakery to interview the owners Graham Savage and Vidya Sarjoo for my upcoming From the Tree November post. It was a perfect afternoon and I think it’s safe to say that a delicious time was had by all!

During the interview the dynamic duo mentioned that one of their latest creations, the “Cranachan inspired” cupcake had caught the attention of British Baker and as a result they were about to become the stars of their very own cookery Youtube video for the magazine. The video came out today and so I wanted to share it, and this wonderful Scottish recipe, with you all…

    Those sound utterly fabulous! I so want to make them this weekend but that would be bad news for the diet. It makes a lot more sense than haggis chocolate, I suppose… ;)
