A retro/vintage cake shop in East Lancashire is reopening this weekend after the owner closed it down to have it refurbished.

The relaunch event will take place on Saturday, July 30, from 11am to 2pm at the shop which is based at 199 Blackburn Road, Accrington.

Mia Jade Bakes opened as a shop in October last year after the owner tasted sweet success operating as a stall in Accrington market.

Psychology graduate Mia Beardsworth, 22, of Accrington ran the shop full-time up until she got a full time teaching job which meant the shop was only open on Friday nights and Saturdays.

Fortunately for cake lovers, the school summer holidays mean Mia’s schedule is free of teaching, so the revamped cake shop will be open five days a week.

The cake shop was already a candy floss coloured shop but the revamp has added even more pretty pink details to the interior along with an updated menu.

She said: “I’ve kept the theme retro but I’ve added so much.

"There’s a retro themed fridge at the front next to loads of pastel balloons. I’ve tried to make it a lot more funky than it already is.”

The cake shop also sells bucket hats from local fashion business owner Molly Haydock at the counter.

The theme throughout the shop is sprinkled with Mia’s creativity and talents as a baker.

The cakes taste incredible but the delicate icing details are almost too pretty to eat.

“I’ve decorated new cakes for the window display too which just shows customers what designs I do.”

Customers will also be treated to an upgraded menu including pink waffles to match the Insta-perfect interior of the shop.

The first 20 customers will be able to decorate their own waffles at a waffle station on the relaunch on Saturday - so make sure you get their early if you want to have a go at a bit of decorating.

After some time off, Mia is excited to be back doing the job she loves.

She said: “I’ve actually made friends from people coming in the shop.

"Obviously, I’m the only one in there so it can get quite lonely sometimes but then when my regular customers come in it makes my day.

“Also, the fact I’ve made the shop so bright and colourful, it just makes me so happy – I love being in there.”

Mia plans on training up an assistant to open the shop on their own by the time schools open in September, so she can keep the shop open during weekdays whilst she’ll be working.

After the relaunch this Saturday, the shop will be open from 11am from Wednesday to Saturday every week.
