Wedding Cakes and Cakes for Every Occasion...
It is with sadness that I have decided to close Pipedreams Cake Design after nearly 27 years. I opened in 1989 with 79 weddings booked in my first year, and my peak year saw us taking over 220. There have been over 4000 celebration cake orders, and I think that’s probably a lot of icing sugar! We have done cakes for all sorts of occasions over the years, from birthday cakes for kidneys, memorial stone laying cakes, to ocean liners, some of them delivered in our purple hearse fitted out for cake deliveries!
I have taken the decision to close as I am really tired and want a change, the decision has been taken with a lot of thought and consideration, and once taken, has been implemented without delay to cause minimum upset and inconvenience to my customers.
I have decide not to sell the business as this may cause my customers to lose confidence in their booking, this style of service brings about a bond of trust between client and service provider, and my customers maybe be left feeling uncomfortable not knowing who would be completing their order. I think this would be unfair, so have decided to shut the business down, and maybe somebody will take it on as a fitted out cake shop and put their own mark on it, or it will go as an empty shop.
I would like to thank all my loyal customers who over the years have kept my loyal and dedicated staff in employment, and in turn, put revenue back into the system and helped keep a small independent retailer on our high street, something Britain has boasted about for years, but is sadly now in decline.
I will be selling off my equipment and stock over the next few weeks and will advertised when I will be open for this should anyone be interested, there are stands, tins, equipment and small amount of stock, please feel free to share any posts you see with people who maybe interested.
I have added a list below of cake makers whom come highly recommended, two of them shop keepers like myself, it takes a brave person to open a high street shop these days, and I wish all small employers well in all they do.
