Ey Up Me Duck, a phrase that became known across the globe when Angelina Jolie greeted Derby actor Jack O’ Connell with it at an awards ceremony. Now family bakery Stacey’s Bakery has created a new Derbyshire cake and named it after the well-known Derbyshire greeting.
Stacey’s Bakery, which has shops in Ilkeston, Eastwood and Heanor, has created the tasty new biscuit based cake by combining a number of Derbyshire favourites. The cake is in the shape of a duck and contains customers’ favourite flavours – flapjack, congress tart filling, spices, jam and Stacey’s much-loved gingerbread. It’s an unusual combo but a delicious one!
David Stacey, owner of the century old family bakery, has been working on the product for a number of weeks. It’s still in the development stage and customers are being invited to help decide on the finished product. Samples will be in the shops throughout September and the final version will be on sale in October.
David said: “Coming up with a new cake can be quite difficult when there is so much out there. The hardest part is the technical side of it, actually making it – coming up with something that you can make efficiently is the real challenge.
“We decided to go with a combination of some of the cakes that we know our customers love. Most people in Derbyshire will be familiar with saying ‘Ey up me duck’ and it’s a common phrase in the towns where our bakery and shops are based.
“We hope people like the new cake and look forward to hearing what people think.”
