Deal with it.
Revel in it.
I've definitely run across this usage before, though I can't remember exactly where... it may have been Australia or New Zealand. It pops up as a non-primary definition in a few dictionaries.http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/english/bakeryIt's not quite like "cookery," of course, because the cookery is either the place you're cooking or the tools you're cooking with, not what the result of the cooking is, but I suppose it's not super far from the way "embroidery" works - embroider is the verb, and the result of embroidering is the embroidery.
Must be that American influence again. <;-)
I am Irish, I think this is just a commercial blurb you have read, I have never heard anyone using bakery like this, But neither have I heard of 'baked goods' :-)
West of Ireland resident here. I've never heard this usage before either: bakery for me has always referred to the place or building, not the goods.
