I'm sending you a postcard from Edinburgh, a perfect weekend away, with lots of cakes to keep your tourist feet pounding the old City streets!
Let's start with some Chocolate Orange traybake, and a Beetroot Poppy Seed tray bake from the National Museum of Scotland bistro. Also pictured, some treats from the Edinburgh Castle cafe: Mint Aero Tiffin (whaaat!) and Chocolate Tarts.
A fabulous collage of cake from around the city...
Top line: Pistachio Rhubarb Tiffin (Cafe on the Mound) - my personal favourite, Ginger and Raspberry Tiffin (Cafe on the Mound), White Chocolate Cake (Edinburgh Castle tea rooms, better than the cae by far!).
Bottom Line: Mini Victoria Sponges (Edinburgh Castle tea rooms), a castle themed showstopper (tea rooms again), and some chocolate brownies.
Currently looking for a recipe for the rhubarb bake, if anyone has any bright ideas??
Finally, I am a total Mimi's Bakehouse convert, having had brunch there on Sunday. These photos are from the Leith branch, but there's also one on the Royal Mile, if you're in the city centre.
Oreo cupcakes, Raspberry Chocolate cupcakes, and Chocolate Fudge cakes pictured below... and me!
Look out for our next 'Postcard from...' blog coming soon. Who knows where our bakers will head to next?! Take a look at some previous discoveries on Twitter via the hashtag #280ontour.
