With the high street quieter than usual, we’re going virtual. As part of #GoDaddyShops, in the run up to Christmas, we’re shining a light on a number of our customers, giving them the chance to show off their finest products to a whole new audience. This time on The Virtual High Street: Andy Walker, owner and baker of Gingerbread Baker.
Andy Walker loves to bake. During the 27 years he worked as a software developer, he was hungry for the sweet taste of success as a baker. Finally, he decided to trade in the keyboard for the kitchen and started Gingerbread Bakery.
Andy and his team have a simple, delicious mission: To kick-start your day with a personalised cake delivery; be it Chocolate Brownies, Lemon Drizzle, Fruit Cake, or his own very special Gingerbread – delivered straight to your door from their bakery near Market Drayton, the home of Gingerbread.
I started setting out plans in February but then Covid-19 started to take hold and I thought it wouldn’t happen. However, my online store is working brilliantly and, one day, I would love to compliment my website with a bakery in town. – Andy Walker
Order before 10am and your choice of cakes should be with you the very next (working) day.
Gingerbread Bakery works with local suppliers to source the freshest and most authentic ingredients, and they use old-fashioned techniques to ensure the highest quality and that special ‘home baked’ taste that sends you right down memory lane.

More about Gingerbread Bakery
All of Andy’s kitchen creations are carefully boxed-up and delivered to you – typically, the next day – if you order before 10am. And, that packing and delivery charge is included in the price!
Andy’s Gingerbread Bakery products are perfect for special-occasion gifts, as a ‘thank-you’ to a friend, or a treat for your family.
When Andy was setting-up his business, he wondered if there would be an appetite for ‘cakes by post’ but, if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that people deserve a treat – and having something delicious delivered to your door can set your whole day on the right track.
This is what happens when entrepreneurial people follow their dream and set up their own business.
You never know how much of a difference you can make to the lives of your customers.
That personal touch – where all the cakes are hand made by Andy – is a connection that is made between a small businessperson and their customers.
At GoDaddy we’re all about empowering every idea, business, side hustle or nonprofit cause to claim their place online and look great at the same time.
