Charlotte O’Toole is to supply Harvey Nichols in Manchester with products from her company, Bakeorama. 

O’Toole, who describes herself as a cake artist, will be taking over the cake counter at the Manchester store from 12 February. She made her name in the bakery Home Sweet Home, based in the city’s Northern Quarter.

O’Toole first announced the news this week, through Twitter: “Excited to say I will be supplying #HarveyNichols from 12th Feb. The only place in Manchester to get your Bakeo fix.”

Of her Harvey Nichols debut, she said: “I’ve got some new menus and new recipes and I’m really excited to get them out there.

“It’s such a lovely venue and I was just really honoured that they’ve asked me to take over the counter.”

O’Toole trained as a pastry chef in Liverpool before moving to Manchester, and said customers can expect the outlandish, over-the-top designs she has become known for, which are inspired by everything from films and pop culture to retro sweets.

She also created the Cadbury’s chocolate grotto that toured the UK before Christmas.
