One Nut Baker is a artisan bakery based in Guildford. We bake a variety of goods, cookies, brownies, edible cookie dough and seasonal specials.
In February 2014 I found out I had testicular cancer. I found it early, and ‘righty’ was removed and I didn’t need chemo. When major life events happen they can have a big impact on you. Your focus shifts to what is truly important, and the things you love doing.
Baking had always been a side passion of mine. Yet, after cancer, it had more significance. So when I finally decided to take the step and create my own baking business, I knew exactly what I was going to call it – One Nut Baker – for that is what I am!
If customers notice the name they assume it is because we use nuts in our products, or that I am a bit ‘nuts’. If someone asks we always tell them.
I am very open about my experience of testicular cancer, and where appropriate I share my experience and hope in my own little way I am raising awareness. I encourage you to make sure you check your dangly bits regularly.
Our Love for the Surrey Hills
Having lived in Guildford all my life, surrounded by the Surrey Hills, it has been great to attend farmers’ markets as customers, then as stall holders. We buy local where we can and try to promote other local business where we can too, through social media.
