About Classicakes

How it all started

Based in Thorpe Astley, Leicester, Classicakes was founded in 2018. It all started when I was asked to make a wedding cake for my Brother and Sister-in-Law to be.

I am a classically trained chef and attended Leicester College, the subject I excelled in was pastry and desserts. Working from my home kitchen I created my first wedding cake and after receiving so many comments and praise I decided to set up Classicakes. Still working from my home kitchen I have a 5 star food hygiene rating and have been making bespoke celebration cakes ever since.

I have a passion to make delicious hand made cakes from the freshest of ingredients, we don’t use cake mixes or preservatives just tried and tested recipes. Our lemon flavoured cakes have the rind and juice of real lemons and we use the best vanilla extract in our plain sponge cakes. 

Classicakes delivers throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and the East Midlands. We offer a free collection service or we can deliver to the venue of your choice.

Allergies and Special Diets

We realise that you or your guests may have specific allergy requirements or diets and we try to make sure you requirements are met, no one should be left out of eating cake! We can make cakes that are Gluten, Nut, Egg or Dairy free. Please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements

I love designing cakes

One of the things I enjoy most about making cakes is the design process. Whether it be a childs jungle themed birthday cake or an elaborate highly decorated wedding cake. We will always take your design ideas into account to make your cake a memorable one off design.

Tell me what’s your flavour

Whether you are looking for a plain vanilla sponge cake or a Champagne and strawberry cake we are happy to make cakes in any flavour you prefer. I excel at Chocolate cakes, zingy lemon cakes, rich chocolate and orange or boozy rich fruit cakes. And if you are having a large party or wedding why not have a different flavour for each cake tier?
