New Cake Parlour Opening in Stockbridge tomorrow – Liggy’s Cakes

Liggy’s cakes are beautiful, I used to pass by her William Street shop often and gaze longingly at them even though I don’t have a sweet tooth. Delighted to see her opening in Stockbridge. And although I won’t be at the launch party tomorrow evening, I’m sure Nikki and her friend will have a cake or two for me!

Award-winning artisan cake company, Liggy’s Cake Company, officially launches its new cake parlour in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge tomorrow, 3rd February. An area popular with artists, designers and foodies, the new cake parlour will only add to the eclectic offerings.

To add a twist, a signature hot chocolate has been created using artisan flakes from The Chocolate Tree and a hand-whipped double cream quenelle topped off with a gourmet marshmallow from The Marshmallow Lady. It will be available to take away from the shop along with a selection of teas supplied by Eteaket and Liggy’s famous cupcakes and goodies.

To cater for those staying strong with healthy New Year’s Resolutions Liggy has created a selection of healthier treats for the new shop. Buckwheat flour is used as an alternative to white flour, bringing higher levels of protein, natural vitamins and minerals; fruit syrup replaces sugar as a natural sweetener; and raw cacao powder is high in antioxidants, magnesium and iron.

Specialising in show-stopping wedding and occasion cakes, Liggy’s won ‘Wedding Cake Designer’ of the year at the Scottish VOWS Awards, four years in a row from 2011 to 2014 and founder Liggy Morgan said:

 

“I always dreamt of having a boutique in Stockbridge, a place I’ve forever thought of as the style hub of Edinburgh. With so much design and food inspiration around the area, our bakes will definitely reflect that. With a bigger space than ever before we’re able to offer customers a small sit in option and have put the wheels in motion for baking workshops later on in the year. So Stockbridge, I hope you’re ready for some serious indulgence!”

Liggy’s offers a vast selection of indulgent, handmade treats. In celebration of the Stockbridge opening, a new layer cake collection is also being launched. The collection is available in seven mouth-watering flavours including salted caramel, red velvet and cappuccino and will be available in-store daily.
