Town has it all for weddings

A BRIDAL shop, a florist, a nail salon, a clothes boutique – and now a cake company.

Business leaders in Rothwell believe grooms and brides-to-be should look no further when planning their big day.

Following the opening of another wedding-related shop, the town has been described as the wedding district of the county.

Last week Sally Wykes cut the ribbon to The Little Blue Owl Cake Company in High Street.

The shop offers a wide-range of celebrational cakes.

It was opened on the same day a bakery, The Bread Bin, closed down after more than 20 years in business.

Marilyn Hacker decided to shut after doctors said her fiance Ian Brown needed a triple heart bypass operation.

Sally said: “It is a complete coincidence we opened on the same day – but it is good for Rothwell.

“The town is fast becoming the centre for food excellence and my cake shop will be the cherry on top.

“With a bridal shop, florist, nail salon and clothes boutique a few feet away, the High Street will be the wedding district of Northamptonshire.”

Also in High Street are Wedding Paraphernalia, Magnolia Florist and Beauty Salon.

Sally launched the business after trading in a career of car sales for her passion for cakes.

She said: “Our cakes are made with the finest ingredients and finished to a high standard.

“We specialise in celebration cakes for weddings, birthdays, christenings or any excuse to eat cake. Whether people fancy a classic apple turnover or delicious death by chocolate cupcake, we will satisfy their cake desires.”

The shop is open Monday to Saturday.
