RSPB Bempton Cliffs has added a selection of amazing sweet treats from two local bakers to their cliff top café.

Katy Wheelwright and Karyn Hoggard, both based in Bridlington, are well known around the town for their fabulous baked goods. Katy’s previous venture was the Little Organic Bakery café and Karyn currently runs Tiffin and Co, in the Old Town.

Both bakers pride themselves not only on quality of their cakes but also their ethical credentials.  

Karyn said:

‘All our goods are produced by hand and we pay particular attention to the environmental impact of what we do, for example we only buy sustainable palm oil products.’

Katy is similarly aware of the responsibility to ensure the ingredients she uses doesn’t adversely affect the natural world:

‘I never use artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives in my bakes.  And the eggs are all free-range, from hens that live close-by.  Put simply, if it’s not good enough for my family, it’s not good enough for my customers’.

The addition of the two ranges has also increased the choice for those with special dietry requirements.  Vegan options have been especially popular with chocolate fudge cake and Lotus Biscoff crème tiffin being big hits.  

Visitor Operations Manager, Scott-Davison Smith said:

‘As a conservation charity, we’re very conscious of issue such as food miles and sustainability and so using local suppliers ticks a lot of boxes for us.  As does the fact that both Katy and Karyn use only carefully sourced, quality ingredients.  And, of course, their bakes taste amazing too’.
