The Sentinel: Tastes Good

August 17th, 2012

Pints and bottles have been replaced with cakes and chocolates at a new Stoke-on-Trent business.

John and Carl Wynne have spent £400,000 transforming the former Three Tuns pub on Bucknall New Road, Hanley into a specialist cake and chocolate shop and cafe. Wynne’s Cakes and Winnie Wonka Chocolate yesterday, hosted a VIP night to celebrate its opening, with guests including singer and actress Toyah Willcox, right with John and Carl.

John, aged 41, from Hanley, said: “I ran the pub for 15 years, and it was successful for most of that time, but with the decline of the market, I decided to do something different, and my friend suggested I open a cake shop.”

“Four years ago I’d never baked a cake, but I’ve been on lots of courses and it’s going really well. We’ve been open five weeks, and we’ve already got bookings for three weddings.”
