Pupil cooks up winning cake design

Have your say

A STOCKBRIDGE Primary School pupil has had her Christmas wish granted thanks to a local bakery.

Meg Marshall, who is in primary one, created a cupcake for Cuckoo’s Bakery’s Christmas selection for a competition organised by the owners.

The creation, Chocolate Explosion, was drawn by Meg and has now been brought to life by the kitchen team at Cuckoo’s Bakery, with the final recipe consisting of a Belgian chocolate chip sponge filled with white chocolate ganache and topped with a glittering chocolate buttercream and an edible snowflake.

Meg’s cupcake is now ­available to buy in Cuckoo’s Bakery, in Dundas Street, as part of its range of Christmas cupcakes.

Faye Calder-Kelly, head teacher at Stockbridge Primary, said: “I am very pleased to have worked in partnership with a local business, Cuckoo’s Bakery, on this project.

“The children were very motivated by the cupcake ­competition. They produced some very creative designs and original flavours.

“We look forward to tasting the winning design.”
