At The Baking Institute Bakery We are committed to providing our customers with the best quality, old-fashioned style, hand-made, fresh baked, cakes, cookies and pastries that promote health and well-being. We use all-natural ingredients and never add any artificial additives or preservatives. We don’t use margarine or any other man-made oils and fats, thus all our products are naturally trans-fat free!

Unlike most other bakeries, we don’t rely on added fats and dairy to add moisture and flavor. All of our fruit cakes are made by combining our freshly-made real fruit juice and fruit medleys to the cake batter. This process increases the authentic fruit flavor of our cakes without unnecessary preservatives. All of our cakes are individually handmade and decorated with care by our specially trained bakers.

Let The Baking Institute provide a cake for your next special event, or look for our many products available at fine retailers all over the Chicago area.

Our venue included wedding cake. We were able to choose from 5 different bakeries and even though our venue was not able to lean towards a certain bakery, many of the people at my venue recommended Baking Institute. I'm so glad I did! My mom and I have a sweet tooth so tasty cake was important to me. We were able to do a tasting months in advance, changed how it looked a few times, and everyone was very responsive and kind in the process. During the tasting we ordered a few samples and chose the marble cake with banana French custard and it was absolutely delicious! The cake itself looked absolutely beautiful also, better than the pictures. I highly recommend Baking Institute for best tasting cake and beautifully decorated cake. Thank you Baking Institute!

We opted to have 4 individual cakes on cake plates instead of having it traditionally tiered. People were asking where our cake was from before it was cut because they were so beautiful. We had even more people asking once they had eaten it because it was SO good - definitely the best cake I have ever had. The Baking Institute was super accommodating and very responsive to my questions and requests. I would highly recommend!

When I walked into our venue and saw our cake set up, my heart stopped, my breathing stopped, I was completely in awe! They did such an amazing job on our wedding cake that I was, and still am, completely stunned by it. I'm so glad that our venue partners with them and sent us there for our cake! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect representation of exactly what I had pictured in my head! They made all of the details on the cake perfectly match the damascus print from our invitations. It was so nice to meet with them once, MONTHS before the wedding, and taste test, and order that day, and simply have to email once a week before the wedding, just to confirm the delivery time and address. It was one of the easiest parts of the whole process, yet one of the parts with the most amazing result! Thanks to everyone there for making our dream wedding cake a reality!

The Baking Institute did a beautiful job on our wedding cake! Not only did they sit down with us for the tasting to talk through various cake/frosting flavor combinations, but they also incorporated all of our design requests. Compliments poured into us all night on how beautiful the cake was and how delicious it tasted!

We had a very easy and efficient time deciding on our wedding cake from the Baking Institute. We decided on a few samples to try and chose a simple white cake with butter-cream frosting and as simple as it sounds, it was fantastic and all of our guests loved it! The Baking Institute produce a very beautiful and high-quality cake, you will be more than satisfied. You will also be at ease as they are reliable and professional. They even added an extra tier so that we could save the top to tier for us. Great vendor!
