The Greatest Cakes
A mouth-watering virtual tour makes our favourite list this week with the delectable Truly Scrumptious Designer Cakes.
Take a tour around the studio located in the beautiful royal burgh of Linlithgow and feast your eyes on the most incredible display of cake-creations which are simply stunning in design.
From small and perfectly-formed cup-cakes to larger elaborate and inspired creations, Truly Scrumptious cakes will take your breath away.
These are no basic bakes. They are edible works of art.
A red wall lit with fairy lights draws you up the staircase to the first floor studio. Photos of some of the fabulous creations, along with some sample cakes in the shape of horses and swans, make it clear that this is no ordinary cake shop.
As you turn the corner into the studio you can feed your tingling taste buds with a one of the freshly baked selection of cupcakes waiting to be eaten, take in the array of cakes on shelves and in the huge glass display cabinets around the room, or sit at the glossy round table to talk about your individual requirements with one of the cake designers.
Tiers of Joy
If you're getting married, there's an enticing selection of intricately decorated white, silver and pink tiered wedding creations. For other special occasions, the decorative display stretching across the wall in the huge glass cabinet ahead is bursting with fantastic ideas.
Vintage cars, enchanted castles, Minions, Harry Potter sorting hats, handbags, pairs of shoes and boots, are just some of the inventive conceptions waiting to inspire customers. Or you're welcome to conjure up another unique creation from your own imagination.
Whether you want traditional, contemporary, comical, quirky, uncomplicated or extravagant, this is the place where a simple idea can become the cake of your dreams.
Producing around 20 to 30 cakes a week, with some of the more intricate designs taking up to 8 hours to complete, manager Lisa says "It's always interesting here and we never get bored."
Have your Cake & Eat It
And judging by the numerous online comments, the finished bakes taste as wonderful as they look. Although, it must take a brave person to make the first cut into one of these works of iced art.
