The Cake Shop Bakery, Suffolk has been crowned this year’s Britain’s Best Bakery.
Sibling duo David and Lindsay Wright took the title after they impressed judges in the final with their English rose-themed four-tiered wedding cake.
Speaking to British Baker, Lindsay said: “It feels really good to have won, and it’s wonderful to talk about it! It happened in the summer, and loads of people have been bringing in cards and stopping us in the street, making us feel really famous.”
Lindsay added that the bakery, which produces a range of breads and cakes, has experienced increased sales since the final aired.
“It has already been incredibly busy since it came out, and hopefully we can sustain a bit of that.”
Following the announcement, judge Mich Turner MBE tweeted the bakery: "@cakeshopbakery the news is officially out, so I can wholeheartedly congratulate you and your bakery. Worthy winners. Very well done."
Commenting on the achievement, Mike Holling, chief executive of the Craft Bakers’ Association of which the Wright’s are members, said: “I am very, very pleased they won. It’s a great advertisement for craft baking.”
The business was founded by the Wrights’ grandfather in 1946, before it was taken over by their father. Now, the family-run business is run by the pair and their three other siblings.
