An Ipswich bakery's version of a viral TikTok sensation sold out within an hour of opening.

Rebecca Cockett set up Mama Bears Cake Bar nearly five years ago before opening the first bakery in High Street, Saxmundham. 

At the end of last year she expanded to open a second location in The Walk in Ipswich which officially opened on Saturday, November 25. 

Taking on a new challenge, Ms Cockett announced the addition of the "Bruce" cake - an 11 layer chocolate cake filled with rich chocolate ganache.

It was inspired by the viral "Bruce" sold by Get Baked UK, a Leeds bakery who have gained more than 260,000 followers on TikTok with its 24-layer chocolate cake. 

"The Bruce cake was very popular and sold out within the first hour of opening," said Ms Cockett.

"Many bakers have been trying the trend so we thought Ipswich deserved a slice of the action too.

"We will definitely be making more of them but our bakes change every day so it won't be available every day."
