'IT has been manic, it has exceeded my expectations.'

These are the words of Duscia Roberts, an award winning cake designer from Burnham-on-Sea, who said her new cake shop, DusiCake, has sold out of cakes almost every day since it opened just two weeks ago.

Tucked away in Oxford Street, DusiCake serves a variety of freshly baked cakes and cupcakes decorated with colourful, creative designs and punchy flavour combinations.

Speaking about the store, Duscia said: "I have had some amazing feedback from residents since I opened the store and great support from the community.

"I have been running DusiCake for six years from home and did not really intend to open a shop, it just sort of came about.

"The landlord of my previous property decided to sell our house and so I needed to move somewhere.

"They messaged me and asked me if I would be interested in living in a flat above a shop and I said I would take a look at it.

"As soon as I walked through the door I could see the whole shop come to life and so I decided to move in and do it."

Duscia worked for six weeks to renovate the shop into after she got the keys in March and said business has been booming since she opened the doors on May 24.

"We have been selling out of cakes almost every day since we opened," Dusica said.

"We have been open for two weeks. It has been manic, it has exceeded my expectations.

"I bake and decorate the cakes myself and make different cakes each day with a good vegan and gluten free option available each day.

"I am still make one or two celebration cakes a week but I make them much more exclusively now.

"I work here full time but have recently employed another member of staff who will work here a few days a week.

"DusiCake is designed in a dark boutique style as that is what I like and I wanted to create somewhere that has quite an exclusive feel to it.

"It's early days but business has been really good and I am looking forward to the future."
