Supporting Birmingham Businesses

All bread loaves, pastries, desserts, cakes and artisanal chocolates are made using only the very best ingredients. To support University College Birmingham’s commitments to sustainability and fuelling the Midlands economy, we are proud to source from local producers.

This means that when you treat yourself to a little something from Cakes & Bakes, you’re supporting trainee bakers and local producers as well as choosing baked products with a minimal carbon footprint.

We sell products that are provided by our recommended external suppliers, including beautiful tiger baguettes and a delicious soft cob filled with fresh offerings. At Cakes & Bakes, you’ll also find patties catering for halal, vegan and vegetarian diets, as well as fantastic pies and extra-large sausage rolls.
