As toddlers at playschool, the Big Deal team spent much time on the naughty step learning that it was better to give than to receive.
Take up today’s Big Deal with the much loved Cup on Glasgow’s Byres Road and you can do both.
Not only will you receive Cup’s morning tea for two but you will also take away four deluxe Christmas cupcakes in a presentation box.
Whether you give the cupcakes to someone else or scoff them yourself is entirely between you and your conscience.
Now in its second year, the independently owned Cup is a cosy space dedicated to great teas and fabulicious hand baked cakes.
On a frosty Glasgow morning, it is the perfect spot for a catch-up chat with chums, a warm up and a lovely cup of tea.
The first part of the deal is for morning tea for two. Cup has over thirty varieties of gourmet tea so you should be able to find something fab to tickle your taste buds.
Your two freshly baked scones come in plain, apple and cinnamon or raspberry and white chocolate varieties. Natch, they are accompanied by butter and jam.
Having enjoyed your morning tea and chinwag, Cup’s lovely staff will give you a festive red presentation box filled with four delicious cupcakes and tied with a bow.
The fantastic festive themed cake selection comprises:
A vanilla cupcake with white chocolate butter cream frosting and a white chocolate shooting star
A chocolate cupcake with a dark chocolate frosting and a mini chocolate Christmas tree
A light gingerbread cupcake with cinnamon frosting and a mini gingerbread Santa
A vanilla cupcake with a vanilla festive red frosting and a Christmas candy cane on top.
They would make fantastic gifts for friends, family, secret Santas or you could just split them with you morning tea pal and take ‘em home.
We won’t tell.
Previous 5pm customers have raved about their times at Cup. This is what Helen Liu had to say recently:
‘A small but unique place for perfect afternoon tea. Already been back twice !’
