The shop boasts a huge array of confections, from fudge brownies to Belgian waffles, from French crepes to individual cakes and cookies.

"There is a huge demand for shops specialising in desserts, they make people feel good and there is nothing like this in Fleetwood.

"The idea is to offer a wide variety to suit all ages - and we also serve Brodericks coffee."

The new jobs are both full-time and part-time posts and the shop has also created job opportunities for a team of self-employed drivers.

Fleetwood is the sixth shop in the area to open under the Indulge Desserts banner; there are also outlets in Kirkham, Catterall, Preston and St Annes.
