Shhh! Listen up. Can you hear that? The rustle of cake wrappers. The soft crack of icing sugar on the march. The occasional tinkle as a hundred and thousand falls from the carapace.
That, my friends, is the sound of a cupcake army limbering up for action. Oh sure, we may have the upper hand now but as the inexorable rise of the cupcake continues, it seems certain that one day there will be a mighty battle between our two species.
We are in charge at the moment but the cupcakes are plotting to become our overlords.
Be a hero and do your bit for the human race by eating at least twelve of the cupcakes’ best and brightest representatives, thanks to today’s Big Deal with Cup on Byres Road.
The fantoosh, West End tea shop and cake emporium is about to celebrate its first birthday. Hip hip! Hurrah!
To help mark the occasion, Cup have created a bumper box of twelve cupcakes so that you can join the party.
This limited edition box includes all of Cup’s favourites from this year including strawberry, vanilla, After Eight, chocolate orange and many, many more great flavours.
Wrapped with a ribbon, the box of twelve cupcakes would make a very welcome gift for your nearest and dearest.
Or a sneaky treat for yourself.
Mighty fine cupcakes they are too but don’t just take our word for it. The Herald’s food critic Ron McKenna has slipped through the doors of Cup and his verdict was: ‘it’s all very, very good’.
5pm customers agree and rate the place a tasty 4.7/5.
