Brownings the Baker, whose hallowed halls brought us that majesty that is The Killie Pie, have been taking part in the referendum chat by selling a series of cupcakes with ‘Aye’, ‘Naw’ and ‘Don’t Ken’ on them. Democratic, tongue and cheek and delicious.
On their Facebook page they have a ‘Cake-o-meter’ which is keeping track of the sales of the various cupcakes. It’s a canny move from Brownings – to grab us Scots by the baking. It’s a fun outlet for all the dialogue that’s going on. Of course it’s not representative or scientific or anything but it’s, literally, giving us a flavour of the local support. In fact that’s really all any of the polls do.
Aye – 711
Naw – 462
Don’t Ken – 306
