Paul first started out in business in 2002 with a small cake studio behind Oliphant's bakery on the High Street in Linlithgow, central Scotland. To learn a little about the history of Linlithgow, which includes the Mary Queen of Scots birthplace at Linlithgow Palace and for what's going on in the local area, have a look at Linlithgow Pride and Passion. Or take a look at Visit West Lothian, a site dedicated to all the local events and places of interest.
