The opening date for a new bakery in Ipswich has been announced. 

Rebecca Cockett is expanding her popular business with a second shop after opening her first store in Saxmundham over two years ago. 

Mrs Cockett has revealed her new Mama Bears Cake Bar will open in The Walk in Ipswich at 10am on Saturday. 

The bakery serves made-to-order birthday and celebration cakes, as well as a range of other sweet treats and drinks. 

Speaking about the expansion, Mrs Cockett said: "It's all of my dreams come true.

"You can't go wrong with a pretty pink bakery. It just makes everyone happy."

The Ipswich bakery will be for takeaway and deliveries of made-to-order celebration cakes. 

In a Facebook post Mrs Cockett announced that the first 20 customers at the new store in Ipswich will receive a free gift.
