Mrs. Gibson is an American mother-of-four, and since making Ireland her home in 2006 with husband Kevin Gibson, her family has grown up with all the different desserts which now make up the TTC menu. Since her own childhood, these treats have been her obsession, and it has always been her dream to have a bakery. Krissy’s authentic hand-made desserts are lovingly made with no additives or preservatives, just as they were by her own mother, her grandmother, and her great-grandmother before her. Take the Cake gives the consumer fresh, moist cakes made with only the best locally-sourced ingredients, making desserts the way they were MEANT to be eaten. The menu is made up of traditional American desserts — the kind you mightn’t usually find in Ireland.
You can regularly watch Krissy on the cooking segment on “Ireland AM” and “The Six O’Clock Show” on Virgin Media One, and order anytime from https://takethecake.ie/online-shop-2/
