About Me


Hi, my name is Warsan and I am The Good News Baker. Thank you for visiting our website. Here are a couple of interesting facts before you get to know me better below.

  1. I am a self-taught baker, that has worked very hard to create a portfolio of delicious recipes. 
  2. My name, Warsan, actually means 'good news' in Somali. 

Starting The Good News Baker

In 2019, I was battling with anxiety and I started baking to relieve some stress, posting my bakes on Instagram. Sure enough, baking quickly became a strong passion of mine and my friends/family were particularly obsessed with my brownies. When the pandemic caused a lockdown, I had too much time on my hands to overthink and began to feel low. After some encouragement, I began selling premium brownies to customers online and it was an instant hit. GNB flourished beyond my wildest dreams and I was able to connect with so many lovely people over our shared loved of chocolate goodies. From tea parties to corporate orders, GNB also allowed others to stay in touch and send treats to loved ones and clients alike. 

My business

The Good News Baker is growing!

GNB has come a long way from being a one woman show with two trays and a home kitchen to a large commercial kitchen with two new staff members. This means that capacity has increased and we are expanding the product range. We now offer Luxury Letterbox brownies and Giant Stuffed Cookies that can be sent across mainland UK. The mission is to deliver great news with every mouthful, selling gourmet brownies, cookies and everything in between! Stay tuned for exciting new products this year. 

My business puts customers first to ensure you enjoy the GNB experience from start to finish. I love hearing from customers, please feel free to pop a message via email, Instagram or Facebook and you most certainly will get a reply! 

Yours truly, 

The Good News Baker
