Baker gets on his bike to share a slice of hap­pi­ness

The Wharf - - The Week -

A Bow baker is hop­ing to sat­isfy the crav­ings of Ca­nary Wharf of­fice work­ers after launch­ing his eco-friendly cake com­pany.

Luke Boa­tright was in­spired to fol­low his pas­sion after he met food critic Jay Rayner while work­ing on The One Show.

Roles on The Great Bri­tish Menu and Who’s Do­ing The Dishes fol­lowed, with the 25-year-old cook­ing along­side more than 90 celebri­ties such as Antony Wor­rall Thomp­son and Linda Barker.

But it was when he pur­chased an old cargo de­liv­ery bi­cy­cle from eBay that the idea for The BakeCy­cle was born.

He said: “I thought there was a gap in the mar­ket for bakes that feed peo­ple and taste great rather than just look­ing good.

“I’m hop­ing to get or­ders from big com­pa­nies round Ca­nary Wharf like Bar­clays for when they have big meet­ings or want to im­press a client.”

Luke makes tray­bakes in his par­ents’ kitchen us­ing fam­ily recipes and de­liv­ers them to of­fices in east Lon­don and be­yond via pedal power. Laura En­field
