Great Cakes: The Final Day

A few minutes ago, Great Cakes ended a 32-year run as Westport’s go-to bakery.

Owner Rick Dickinson had all hands on deck, including his sons. Rick and longtime baker Boni Wright hugged, cried with and said goodbye to hundreds of longtime customers.

At the same time, there were cupcakes to sell, cakes to be picked up, questions about ingredients to be answered.

It was a typical Great Cakes day.

And one that will never happen again.

In the back, baker Boni Wright decorated her last Super Bowl cake…

…while customers thronged the front.

Counter help included Boni, and owner Rick Dickinson’s sons.

Handwritten signs said it all.
