Dessert manufacturer Ministry of Cake has announced the opening of its new Department of Traybake production line for a brand new range.

The dessert manufacturer is producing traybakes in eight varieties, including chocolate brownies, millionaire shortbread and rocky road.

The full range includes:

  • Flapjack
  • Granola Bar
  • Chocolate Brownie
  • Raspberry & Coconut Slice
  • Millionaire Shortbread
  • Cherry Bakewell
  • Rocky Road
  • All Butter Shortbread

The new lines are being made at the Ministry of Pudding’s site in Torquay following an investment of £500,000 in specialist equipment.

This extension has also meant the company has been able to take on 25 additional staff from the local area.

John Gregson, national account manager for Ministry of Cake, said this was an exciting development within the company’s production capabilities.

“As well as the cakes, puddings and cheesecakes, we now have a completely new range that we can talk to our customers about,” he said.

“From the research into traybakes currently in the market, I’m confident that we have great-tasting, amazing-looking collection of products - and at price points that our customers will be excited about.’’

British Baker recently caught up with Chris Ormrod, MD of Ministry of Cake, after Mademoiselle Desserts acquired the business.
