HAVE YOU SUPPORTED THE SUGAR DADDY’S KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN YET?  WE NEED MORE GLUTEN FREE CAKE!  HERE

Sugar Daddy’s bakery in Rodney Street, is now a firm fixture on the itinerary of any gluten free eater in Edinburgh in search of cake.  gluten free cake edinburgh

A gentle upgrade of the cake counter and a year of baking all gluten and sometimes vegan cakes, has really made this a place worth a detour.  While it is off the beaten track, it’s in a good area with plenty of gluten free friendly places nearby: Earthy; stockists of GF beer, the Beerhive; The Water of Leith Cafe Bistro;  the lovely Di Giorgio; and old favourite – The Roamin’ Nose.  So your gluten free cake shopping can be part of a total GF experience in this part of town.

To my mind the bakery, like this website, has settled into itself.  It is still super-friendly and they still make fantastic occasion cakes with some amazing decorations, but it is also now producing really good quality, tasty GF baking.  Take it home in a little cardboard box and enjoy, or sit in the window and enjoy a cup of coffee with your cake.gluten free cake edinburgh 3

We tasted a particularly delicious carrot cake, which was moist and light and highly recommended.  Another delight was the lemon cupcake which, while firmer, had a really zesty tang to it.  The doughnut was a revelation to a doughnut-starved coeliac of 18 months, and the S’mores slice went down a treat with my gluten-eating colleagues.  I didn’t try it, but I loved the look of the “Och Aye” stamped shortbread!

So seek it out, make a detour and visit Sugar Daddy’s.  You are guaranteed non-contamination and full-on taste!
