Ian said: “ Ossett is our first shop. It was recommended to us by a friend and I am so happy they did because the community here is amazing.

“We were very anxious about opening the shop, wondering if it would be successful, but it has exceeded all our expectations.

The couple are self taught, using You Tube videos for guidance, but they took an adventure to start their own family-run business.

“We used to just bake from home for fun and then it started taking off and people began buying them everyday.” Ian said.
