Business is a piece of cake for brother and sister Kristy Giblin and Greg Small.

And soon the pair hope to be serving up their successful recipe for success with a new store at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade.

The Pudding Parlour will open in the centre in February, in the former Sky TV unit, offering delicious desserts with an American twist.

Popular recipes include cookie dough pie, caramel snickerdoodles, Mississippi mud pie and a variety of cheesecakes, as well as hand-made sweets.

The venture started as a home-based enterprise in Stocksfield from Mrs Giblin’s love of baking for family and friends.

After graduating from the same university as his sister, Sheffield Hallam, Mr Small suggested the pair turn her talents into a business and they opened their first shop in Hexham four months later.

Since then they have opened a concession in Fenwick’s Food Hall in Newcastle, and also supply pubs and restaurants across the North East.

Mrs Giblin said: “We’ve been looking for another store for some time and Sanderson Arcade is a fantastic location for us. We’ve got some really exciting ideas for how the store will look and we can’t wait to open up in Morpeth.”

The pair are currently recruiting for staff. Anyone interested in applying should email enquiries@thepuddingparlour.com
