Cakes & Bakes
If you’ve ever walked through Birmingham city centre and caught the aroma of freshly-baked bread or mouth-watering sweet treats, chances are it’s coming from Cakes & Bakes. Located inside Birmingham College of Food on Summer Row, expert pastry chefs and imaginative chocolatiers create a wide variety of delicious, baked goods and confectionery on a daily basis.
University students learning the baker’s trade work alongside seasoned chefs, resulting in some truly exciting baked creations alongside a large menu of timeless classics. Whether you fancy a luxurious cream cake, a selection of indulgent doughnuts or the famous Birmingham Close Notched Cottage Loaf, you’ll find a fresh selection available to buy in the vibrant and welcoming bakery.
As well as bread loaves, pastries, creamy puddings and chilled desserts, the Cakes & Bakes team is also dedicated to handcrafting a wide selection of artisanal chocolates and pralines. These are no ordinary choccies, as they involve the meticulous skill, innovation and attention to detail of a true chocolatier. Every flavour you can imagine is contained within elegant chocolates that are almost too good to eat.
We all love a good annual holiday, so the bakers and patisserie chefs never miss an opportunity to celebrate the occasion through themed breads and desserts.
