A cake shop in Mold has announced it will celebrate one year since opening with several giveaways, vouchers and a raffle.

Cravin Bakery, which is based in the Daniel Owen’s precinct in Mold, has been open for just over one year.

After a life long love of baking for friends and family, wife and husband duo Jamie-Lee and Luke Anderson, started selling baked treats online back in 2019.

The team was part of the Mold Carnival celebrations yesterday (Sunday 10 July) and successfully sold out of all goods by 5.40pm. 

In a Facebook post the team said: "It was a fantastic day and we have loved every minute of it."

In an effort to satisfy summer sweet treat cravings I headed down to the shop to try some of the goodies myself. 

Looking to sample a range of flavours and choices I went for the red velvet cupcake, cookie pie and jammy dodger blondie.

My personal favourite was the jammy dodger blondie as it maintained its gooey goodness whilst enticing those nostalgic memories of a good biscuit. 

The red velvet cupcake was very moist and the cream cheese stuffing plentiful, which my family very much enjoyed.

Finally, the cookie pie is something I have never tried before and on appearance I was concerned if it was going to have a hard crust much like a pie crust. 

However, it was baked to perfection and a great variation on a time old classic. 

From my personal experience, Cravin is a great addition to Mold's highstreet offering unique and indulgent desserts.
