With our afternoon tea voucher for Caledonian Cupcakes on Dunbar's lovely highstreet (just a little less busy than Edinburgh's ;) ), my family and I set off with empty stomachs. It was lovely and sunny but absolutely freezing and then the rain decided to take a wee visit, luckily after we had found the eatery.
Why yes, that is the outfit of the day from my last post!
Caledonian Cupcakes is a gorgeous little cake parlour, decorated beautifully with purple and white as well as the breathtaking cakes on display. Opened less than a year ago by Caroline Miller, the business seems to be doing very well and has a variety of services and delicacies to offer including wedding cakes (as pictured), afternoon tea and the less conventional cupcake bouquets (which look amazing) and brownie mixture in a jar which I need. Right now.
Oh and they sell cupcakes too!
I went for the Terry's Chocolate Orange flavour (of course) but had to keep it for later (it was delicious) as the afternoon tea filled me up!
Gahh I can't even. Doesn't everything just look amazing?! Perfectly rectangular ham sandwiches, cheese and onion sandwiches and oatcakes with soft cheese and cucumber slices followed by a selection of delicious sweet treats.
But wait... what's that on the bottom shelf..?
Is that..? YES. They are delicious scones. My day was made there and then.
Delectable. Insert many heart-eyed emojis here please.
The parlour has many little surprises on offer such as the Mars Bar hot chocolate (I will be trying that next time) and also showcases non-cake products such as these unique Harris Tweed bags (how cool is that bullet strap?) and a shelf of Younique cosmetics too.
It's a very unique cake parlour which is definitely worth a visit. Since the itison voucher I bought has now expired, you can use the gorgeous surroundings as an excuse to eat some cake!
I also found the John Muir Birthplace Museum (literally a 30 second walk from the cake parlour) very interesting and the John Muir Country Park is also nearby. I'm returning to take photos for my college photography project so may share them here once I'm happy with them.
Until then, I hope you enjoyed my cake pictures as much I enjoyed eating the actual food, and do let me know if you decide to try out Caledonian Cupcakes - I highly recommend them! Their Pinterest is pretty drool-worthy too.
