A WEST FIFE business that has taken the cheesecake industry by storm has opened its second shop just a year after its debut store. 

The new Wicked Milk Bar on Inverkeithing’s Hill Street is the latest ice cream and milkshake joint serving the area under the famous ‘Wicked Cheesecake’ brand. 

Beginning life as an online success two years ago, Wicked Cheesecake opened in Crossgates in 2020 and proved such a hit that on its first day, it had to close early after selling more than 1,000 cakes. 

Booming demand for their cheesecakes has brought in sales from 46 stockists across Scotland and now opportunity for further stores of their own.

Owner Jason Thirlwall told the Press: “We’ve been at the premises on Hill Street for months as a base to make our cakes. 

“We thought we might as well open the doors here as well but we’ll focus more on milkshakes at Inverkeithing.

“It’s been a successful move for us – we’ve had queues out the door and we couldn’t have asked for more. 

“It’s fitting that it has been a year since we opened in Crossgates.”
Jason began making cheesecakes for his family and friends but soon word got out about his delicious bakes!

The business now employees 20 staff and Jason, who has also given up his full-time job as an engineer, said: “We’re in talks with two other places to open at the moment. 

“One would be in Fife and the other would be outside of Scotland but I will not run before I jump and say anything more!

“We get big deliveries from retailers and restaurants. This week, we just had Koku Shi sign up with us.

“It’s been overwhelming really – I could have never thought it would go so well. 

“Inverkeithing also hasn’t affected business at our Crossgates shop either so it’s good news in all.”

Wicked Milk Bar is open in Inverkeithing from 2-9pm on Wednesday-Sunday.
