Wellingborough bakery sharing a slice of happiness with customers

The country might be on lockdown but it doesn't stop the need for cake and sweet treats

A Wellingborough bakery is continuing to spread some happiness while the country is on lockdown.

Customers might not be able to pop into The Little Bakery of Happiness at Nene Court at the moment, but they can still get some tasty treats online.

Bakery owner and founder Vicky Robertson has had to adapt due to the Covid-19 restrictions and after creating a microsite for local delivery, she is busy fulfilling orders for customers.

Vicky said: "Although I have now stopped offering a collection service from the bakery in Wellingborough, people can still get food from the bakery by local collection or national courier.

"I have a limited menu of frozen products (raw frozen pies, pastries, cookie dough and baked frozen bread rolls, tarts, cake slices) which will change every week and will be published as a pinned post on the bakery's Facebook page on a Sunday.

"Orders need to be emailed by the following Wednesday at midday for local delivery on the Friday.

"I have four delivery zones that pretty much cover the whole county.

"I also have a range of pantry products (gluten-free flour and baking mixes including biscuits, bread, muffins and pastry) that are available to buy on the bakery website and can be couriered anywhere across mainland UK.

"These items can be added to orders for local delivery."

Customers have been sharing pictures of cakes delivered to them as well as images of what they have created at home with one of the mixes on the bakery's Facebook page.

And following a busy day making deliveries, Vicky posted this lovely message to all her customers: "Happiness: spread.

"I’ve seen so much of our fair county today, had my sat nav refuse to locate some of you, insist on driving me into road closures and pronounce street names in the funniest of fashions.

"And I’ve seen many of you from upstairs and downstairs windows, through letterboxes and cracks in the doorway.

"We nailed this social distancing business. Thank you.

"And thank you for all your orders this week. I hope you enjoy your Little Bags of Happiness."
