Your 2.5-hour tasting adventure begins at noon in central Edinburgh. Meet your foodie guide and set off on a walk along Royal Mile, learning about the city’s best cupcakes and macarons the way to your first stop. Hear a bit about how Scottish confectioners and bakers have spun these international delicacies into local favorites.
Throughout your tour, you’ll taste six unique treats at various shops including Cuckoo’s Bakery – known for their delicately sweetened cupcakes made from locally sourced ingredients – and the popular Patisserie Valerie. Pop into Bibi’s Bakery to sample heavenly meringue or macarons, and perhaps see what an award-winning brownie tastes like!
Continue on to Mimi’s Picnic Parlour and Lickety Splits, an outrageous and beautiful candy shop that would inspire the likes of Willa Wonka! Marvel at the delightful displays and try Mademoiselle Macaron’s traditional French cookies with a Scottish touch.
Finish with a visit to Pinnies and Poppy Seeds to sample some melt-in-your-mouth shortbread – considered the best in the capital! Your tour ends here with plenty of time to head back to your favorite shops and pick up some treaty souvenirs.
