Sisters create tasty cakes at their new shop in Whittlesey

TWO sisters have opened a new cake shop in Whittlesey, and its already proving to be a great hit with customers looking for a sweet treat.

The Broad Street shop - called Fox’s Cakery - offers everything from stylish cup cakes to millionaire’s shortbread and decorated celebration cakes for any occasion.

The shop is run by sisters Joanna Reade, 43, and Sally Saunders, 48 , who have both had a life long passion for home baking. Joanna said: “We have both got a catering background, but this is our first time running a business.

“One of our customers has said that our cakes are addictive, and things are really going well so far. We hope to buck the trend of shops struggling on the high street. If people are having a bad day, they are always pleased to have a treat, to cheer themselves up. It is really nice to offer this service.

“Some of our recipes have come through the family, but we look all over for inspiration. We offer something different every day.
