Cuckoo's Bakery

150 Dundas Street, Canonmills, Edinburgh

"We heard this place was the place to go for cupcakes in Edinburgh and boy is that true," raves Alisa R. "We had a lovely sticky toffee cupcake which was the best sticky toffee cupcake I've had yet. We also had the black bottom cupcake which was a Belgian chocolate bottom with a cheese cake on top."

Cupcakery

1024 Argyle Street, Glasgow

"The cupcakes on offer are unbelieveable," says Robyn M. "After Eight, Irn Bru and ice cream sundae are but some of the awesome flavours you can try."

Mimi's Picnic Parlour

250 Canongate, Old Town, Edinburgh

"Mimi's feels like an oasis of charm and sweetness," sighs Tanya L. "I chose the Oreo cupcake … the cake was moist and the delicious, rich chocolate and the frosting was good as it wasn't too sweet like others can be."

The Little Cake Parlour

1002 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow

Steven B brings the "good news if you are feeling guilty is that they are all made with organic and free trade ingredients. Everything is homemade and you can order cakes big or small for special occasions or because you just want cake."

Casa Angelina

42 London Street, New Town, Edinburgh

"I just ate the banana cupcake," says Elizabeth G. "Lovely fluffy texture to the cake, which was surprising considering it was gluten free & contained banana…. The buttercream was laid on thick and I had a bit of trouble finishing it, despite it being delicious."

Riverhill Coffee Bar

24 Gordon Street, Glasgow

Michelle M sums it up beautifully - "they hit the headlines with the whole Breaking Bad cupcake saga but this place is no one hit wonder. It's a Glasgow gem."

Eteaket

41A Frederick Street, New Town, Edinburgh

"Eteaket has got a good thing going on," says Ursula D. "They have a very impressive tea listing and their scrumptious looking cakes on the counter include a range of mighty pretty cupcakes each day."

Bibi's Bakery

3 West Nile Street, Glasgow

Mark C loves the "huge range of cupcakes from chocolate orange, mini Victoria sponge, After Eight, chocolate peanut butter and so many more! As a wee bonus, there's a loyalty card! Eight cupcakes for a free one? Challenge accepted."

Copper Bird Cafe

129 Morrison Street, west end, Edinburgh

"Who am I to refuse a cupcake?" says Laura D after consuming an "awesome" cupcake. Recent cupcakes have included strawberry cheesecake, banoffee, cookies and cream and even some decorated to look like Sesame Street's Elmo.
