In Ireland, a market stall that sold cakes was one of the seven food businesses that had orders to close due to food safety concerns. This market stall famously displayed their cakes to the Queen of England during here visit.
The market stall in the famous English Market in Cork, Heaven’s Cakes, was one of the many stalls that the Queen visited on her 2011 trip to Ireland. The order for closure was given to the stall on July the 14th but was lifted on the 4th of August (just two days ago).
