Brett and Bailey
who say, “It’s our last trip to the market until the 8th of June, but don’t worry – we’re going (temporarily) out with a bang.

Expect a huge range of scrumptious couture cakes including blue velvet, strawberry fizz, coconut and raspberry, double carrot, chocolate Guinness, and a sensational strawberry and clotted cream cheesecake.

We’ll also have our first apricot and pine nut bakewells of the summer; salted chocolate brownies; sticky salted caramel cookies; peanut butter bars; silky custard tart; cardamom knots; sticky buns; and a choice of bomboloni with gianduja (think Nutella but 100 times better) or raspberry ripple fillings.

Catch us while you can. And if you need a whole cake to collect from the market on the 8th June, please order online by 6pm on Wednesday 5th to avoid disappointment. See you soon!”
