Pink Slice is the delicious treat only people from Dundalk truly understand

From the Home Bakery. ‘MON THE TOWN!


The pink slice is a treat only available at Dundalk institution the Home Bakery.

It consists of layers of soft pastry with jam, cream and pink icing on top. And it’s very special.

The pink slice is best enjoyed, of course, with a cup of tea.

And it has magical, emotion-lifting properties.

Many of those who leave The Taawwwwn are doomed to spend the rest of their lives pining for pink slices.

And we can only speculate as to what would happen in the town if supplies ran low.

BUT THERE IS EVEN BETTER NEWS. For special occasions, you can order an entire cake of pink slice.
