It’s been a great start to the year for the Village Bakery in Wrexham thanks to Prince Harry’s new fiancée Meghan Markle, who gave their Welsh cakes a try on a visit to Cardiff.
According to the North Wales Daily Post, ever since then the bakery has been inundated with orders from across the pond in the US, with half a dozen calls coming from retailers who want to stock the award-winning cakes.
Meghan and Harry were served the cakes by the bakery’s Thomas Kellaway, who told the news source: “She introduced herself as Meghan and said it was her first Welsh cake. She asked if the Village Bakery was a family-owned company and was impressed when I said it was and that it had been going for more than 80 years.”
This isn’t the first time the bakery has attracted royal attention. The news source went on to note that Prince Charles became The Prince of Welsh cakes after visiting the business a few years ago. He, alongside the Duchess of Cornwall, opened the £4 million Baking Academy and Innovation Centre on the Wrexham Industrial Estate at the time.
Not only has the bakery curried royal favour, but it has also just signed a deal with Waitrose to supply bespoke crumpets across 220 of the retailer’s stores around the UK. A great start to the year indeed!
