Get Baked has been serving Leeds up with some of the most impressive sweet treats for quite some time now.
Bringing the city the ‘Bruce’, a huge chocolate cake that’ll set you back £12 a slice, as well as sell out brownies, cookies and Frankenpies – Get Baked has a huge following, with many swearing by owner Rich Myer’s desserts for all occasions.
And now, following the success of the takeaway bakery in Headingley, Get Baked has announced it will be coming to Leeds city centre to bring an eat-in dining concept with pancakes, French toast and poached eggs.
Announcing the news on Instagram yesterday, Get Baked said:
The post has so far amassed 7,700 likes and counting, with thousands commenting about their excitement for the new store.
What is Get Baked?
The dessert business was first founded from a Leeds kitchen in 2011, quickly growing a cult following as word spread out into neighbouring cities and even further afield.
It quickly amassed more than 50,000 followers across social media, with people eager to keep up to date with their humorous content and mouth-watering food pictures. Then, in the midst of its success, it shut down following what has been described as an “unsuccessful” venture into the restaurant business with The Joint in Leeds city centre.
In 2021 the original owner has revealed plans to open a new takeaway in Headingley, which has seen the famous Bruce cake served far and wide across the UK.
Last year, the company entered what they deemed a ‘sprinklegate’ with Trading Standards over the use of their sprinkles, which eventually saw Get Baked release their very own ‘expensive sprinkles’ – and is now ‘currently in possession of the largest volume of totally legal, EU and U.K. compliant rainbow sprinkles in the World.’
Following from it’s recipe book and collaborations with some of the north’s biggest burger spots like Almost Famous and Burgerism – and now it’s taking on the city centre.
