If there’s one good thing to have come out of lockdown, it’s that incredible new delivery services are popping up across the UK – and Edinburgh’s Doughlicious is no exception.
Two Scottish sisters, Tammie and Jessie Beattie decided to launch their business during lockdown and the creations from them are dedicated to some of the UK’s most iconic soap stars.
The Kat Slater is a fluorescent affair – a vanilla ring doughnut with a hand painted leopard print design that’ll have you shouting “ALFIE” at the top your lungs.
If you prefer Dot Cotton, you can now tuck into something that looks just like her ashtray, complete with sugar cane cigarette dimps and oozing with chocolate and vanilla.
Or how about a NUTalie Cassidy – a vanilla rings doughnut smothered in Nutella ganache and topped with crushed hazelnuts.
Alongside Eastenders-inspired doughnuts, the pair also added The Carole Baskin to their menu this week – a doughnut covered in a vanilla flavoured tiger print glaze and topped with wafer flowers. Strictly for cool cats and kittens only.
Alongside more ‘normal’ doughnut flavours such as white chocolate raspberry and Biscoff, Tammie and Jessie also make incredibly chunky brownies with rotating flavours.
If you’re lucky they might even have some of their Kinder Happy Hippo cookies on offer when you order.
Tammie and Jessie said : “We decided to take the plunge and start our business for the simple reason that we’ve always loved baking.
“When we were growing up we were always an Eastenders household and watched it religiously and still find quoting iconic lines to this day. The show is full of incredible female characters from Pat Butcher and her legendary earrings to the leopard-print clad Kat Slater and we thought we’d incorporate them into our creations.”
The pair deliver their wares across Edinburgh every Saturday, to see their full indulgent menu and book some for yourself – a box of two brownies and two doughnuts is just a tenner! – click here.
People on Twitter have been going crazy for the sweet treats, with one fan tweeting: “I’m completely inspired, Amazing!”
Another fan suggested she’d have Dot’s ashtray as her wedding cake.
Whilst others are waiting for Jean’s sausage surprise.
