Demand is rising as much as the cakes - meaning one of Norfolk's youngest bosses is investing in an industrial-sized kitchen.

Morgan Lewis, 19, who opened Bakeaholics in Attleborough to huge interest in April, has just rented a 2,000sqft warehouse to convert into a big new kitchen.

Ms Lewis had been baking in a converted garage at home, selling the cakes in her 'Instagrammable' shop in Queen's Road.

But due to high demand, Ms Lewis has already outgrown her current kitchen and is converting the warehouse, with the aim of moving the baking there by mid August.

"I never thought in a million years I would outgrow my kitchen at home. I remember when my Dad converted it for me, I looked at it and thought: 'it's such a big space to fill.'

"Now I look at the warehouse on an industrial estate, and think 'that's a very big space to fill'."

Investing in the new warehouse is all part of Ms Lewis' plan to expand on her range of products, hoping to bake more tarts and possibly pastries.
