THE owner of a cake shop, which only opened in November, has been heartened by how busy it's been. Abi Smith from Cake Bristol
Owner, Abi Smith, said: "It's been so busy, it's been unbelievable. Everyone of Gloucester Road has been really welcoming."
Services that Cake offer are wedding cake consultations, cake decorating sessions for children, baby showers, and parties for hen-dos and under 16s.
In the build-up to Christmas, cake decorating workshops will be held for all ages, starting from November 29. In the new year, Cake will be hosting an assortment of classes. 
The shop also sells party supplies, such as candles, and hand-made chocolates from Bath. But celebration cakes are the main focus, says Abi. 
All ingredients for her cakes are sourced from Gloucester Road.
Growing up on Nevil Road, baking cakes largely featured throughout Abi's childhood. Her mum owned a bakery on Whiteladies Road, as well as a patisserie in Westbury-on-Trym, where Abi used to help decorate the cakes. 
Abi had set up a coffee shop in Bedminster, but after having a baby, an opportunity to move back to the Gloucester Road area came up and she couldn't resist. 
"It's good to be back in the area," she said. "This part of Gloucester Road is my home."
Coming back to the Gloucester Road area inspired Abi to set up Cake.
