Sarah Moss, owner of The Bakehouse on New Street, has had an application approved to turn a residential kitchen and lounge on the second floor into a commercial setting to make way for Jess Fotheringham.

Ms Fotheringham runs Pickacake Ltd - a business based at the moment in Ipswich where she bakes cakes to individual order. She started up the business after struggling to find a dairy free cake for her son's birthday.

The Bakehouse is the only running in house bakery in Woodbridge where they bake on the premises and Ms Moss hopes to resurrect the former cake making facilities she used to offer.

She said: "It will be nice to have the business back as so many customers keep asking. Jess is hoping to be up and running in January and it will nice to encompass all that we used to offer and have a profitable cake making business again."
