A cake maker has breathed new life into a shop that stood empty for six years and she’s brought the sounds and styles of the 1950s with her.

Hannah Page has transformed a Kempston shop into an American diner themed cake shop that also serves up breakfasts, lunches and milkshakes.

The 27-year-old realised her passion for baking around five years ago after making a birthday cake for her sister.

“It went pretty well and sparked a passion for cake decorating,” said Hannah, who has based her shop on the hit musical movie Grease but ‘with more tattoos’.

At first she launched her business from home but now she’s taken the brave leap to open a shop.

Called The Rockabilly Cake House, it is based below Julie’s Tattoo Studio in Bedford Road, and opened its doors with a Halloween themed ‘shindig’ on October 31.

Delicious handmade cakes and cheesecakes are on offer, along with sub rolls, tea/coffee, milkshakes and bacon rolls that are served up in the morning. There’s also a custom cakes service for special occasions.

The shop is open to all ages and is a breastfeeding friendly venue with disabled access.

Its opening times are, Monday to Friday 7.30am to 4.30pm and 8.30am to 4.30pm on weekends.
