[@]G Weinholt Bakery
Out in the affluent South Manchester suburb of Alderley Edge, the Weinholt bakery has been accruing something of a name for itself.
Mini raspberry brûlée tarts, crème meringues and what can only be described as a giant Malteser-like cake are just some of the desserts that have been wiping the floor with upmarket retailers.
Their distinctly German name harkens back to 1890 when master confectioner Ferdinand Wienholt moved from North Germany to Manchester and began to sell his vanilla slices.
Its doors only open three days a week but Kathleen Weinholt, now the family’s 5th generation of baker, says she spends the rest of the week baking incredible quiches, pies and pastries for their devoted customers.
Signature bake: Their best-selling vanilla slice is hand sliced by baker Mandy every morning.
Star bake: Their pork pies, packed full of meat with a thin pastry crust, are a cut above the competition.
