Preparations for Christmas are well underway with the first mince pies available in the shop now. Mince pies are always a popular item, with four or five different types on offer, and the bakery expects to sell up to 16,000 in the run up to Christmas.

The Gloucester Road central bakery has been owned by Jane and Martin Hunt since 1990, and will be open during the Gloucester Road Traders Fair on December 1st offering a full range of traditional Christmas cakes, yule logs, stollen and novelty children’s cakes as well as their range of classic, artisan and craft breads.

Jane said: “We started making stollen about five years ago and it’s proved to be very popular. We do the traditional German stollen, plus a spelt version and a cream cheese stollen. The speciality versions are very moist and available from the beginning of December. Martin is very good at finding recipes that are different.”
