Cakes rise after shutdown

CREATING Cakes in Lindisfarne has reopened its doors, coming back stronger than ever following COVID-19 restrictions with a momentous 10th birthday celebration.

The local retail shop makes custom-made decorated cakes for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings and engagements, as well as teach cake decorating classes on weekends.

Creating Cakes business owner Lisa Morgan said it was great to see so many people support the business following the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Although our 10th birthday celebrations fell during social distancing, we found our customers have been really supportive and we’ve seen new faces as well as all our regulars come back into the store,” she said.

Labor Member for Franklin David O’Byrne said small business was the backbone of local communities, and there had never been a better time to give back to the local community by shopping

“Small businesses are the heart and soul of our economy and are a huge part of our wonderful state,” he said.

“The success of Creating Cakes reflects the determination, dedication and passion that Lisa and the team have for the industry.”

Mr O’Byrne encouraged Tasmanians to support the local shops and industries to ensure that they have the greatest chance of bouncing back from the impacts of COVID-19.

“It’s imperative that we buy local as we recover from COVID-19,” Mr O’Byrne said.

“Our ongoing assistance and support for local businesses is essential.”
