Cookies and brownies are favourites with BAKES customers, all made using premium ingredients which Lauren believes has helped make her products the best in the local area.
Mouthwatering treats include Biscoff blondies, Nutella brownies, Rolo stuffed cookies, and Kinderella brownies.
Bakes had continued to thrive throughout 2020, and with the local area being such a popular spot for walkers Lauren quickly found herself busier than ever.
So busy in fact that in January BAKES employed their first employee to run the shop at Grandpa Greene’s on a Saturday and Sunday.
Unfortunately, Oldham Council dealt both BAKES and Grandpa Greene’s a huge blow in February and ordered the premises to close on weekends.
Despite working with the council and even employing four COVID marshals to enforce social distancing rules, the popularity proved too much of a health risk for council officials.
Adapting to the harsh reality of having to close the shop at weekends was something that Lauren made sure she did swiftly to minimise disruption.
