Cake shop closes

A popular bakery business has closed up shop after the company that operated it was wound up.

Cake Shop Limited, which had an outlet on Curving Avenue in Pembroke, was back before the Supreme Court of Bermuda Friday morning on a winding-up petition brought by former employees Chittababu Narayanasamy, Janaarthanan Jawar, Udayakumar Santhananam, and Mahipal Singh.

At a hearing in February before Chief Justice Narinder Hargun, Cake Shop was granted “one last chance” to make payments in full or the company would be wound up.

Lawyer Craig Rothwell, representing the petitioners, told the court via Zoom on Friday that no payments had been made to his clients since the previous hearing, and they were owed a total of $37,550.16.

Lawyer Marc Daniels, representing Cake Shop, confirmed to the court that his client was unable to make the payments.

Mr Daniels said he would not apply for a further extension of time to pay, and would make no further argument regarding the order being sought.

Mr Justice Hargun made the winding up order.

The Cake Shop took to social media after the hearing, writing on Maj’s List: “It is with heavy hearts that we inform the community The Cake Shop Ltd will be going out of business immediately.”
