The holiday season is filled with joy, from spending time with family and friends, to receiving and opening gifts placed underneath our beautifully decorated tree, but how could we forget our most enjoyed part of the Christmas season – THE FOOD! The mince pies, puddings, cakes and even the turkey, Dunn’s loves every part of Christmas dining.

With the festive season coming into full effect, yearly traditions have also begun. Whether it is your family’s tradition to go carol singing on Christmas Eve, or to celebrate the worldwide tradition of roasting a turkey for Christmas day dinner, we all follow some kind of tradition this time of the year. Here at Dunn’s Bakery, we have our very own tradition which we like to follow. Every year the Dunn’s Bakery family gathers together to dress up our shop window. Keeping with the festive theme, we place our Christmas tree decorated with our hand baked gingerbread ornaments and ribbons, Christmas cakes and pies, wreaths, and lights in our window, bringing the Christmas spirit into our bakery.
