A popular cake-making company has expanded into larger premises.

The Outrageous Cake Company, owned by Graham and Tina Weare, marked a move from its previous unit at the Cookhouse, Wherstead, near Ipswich, to bigger premises at the site with an open day, free cake and cookie decoration. The firm specialises in making bespoke creations, taken from themes including Game of Thrones and Minions.

“It has been excellent fun dealing with an ever-growing list of happy clients but we needed the extra space and facilities in order to accommodate our extra classes and to cope with demand,” said Tina. “We have an incredible portfolio of uniquely decorated cakes made for an amazing array of people who never fail to surprise us with their ideas.”

The larger premises will enable the business to host other bespoke artisans offering workshops for those looking to learn new skills, or expand their knowledge.
