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.

My wedding cake was one of the most beautiful and unusal cakes that all of my guests have ever seen. The Baking Institute did an excellent job. Not only was the cake an exact replica of the picture that I showed them, it was delicious. We opted for the red velvet cake with cream cheese and it was wonderful. They did a great job and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a special cake for their special day.

I don't think that my wedding cake could have looked or tasted better! The whole process with the Baking institute was amazing!! We had a couple of delicious options to pick from at our tasting and ended up going with an almond cake with fresh strawberries and french custard inside. It is the best cake I have ever had!! The wedding cake was absolutely beautiful, I almost didn't want to eat it (but I knew how amazing it would taste). They were so great to work with and did an amazing job for an incredibly reasonable price!!

The people at The Baking Institute were absolutely wonderful to work with! We had several guests with a gluten intolerance, and they accommodated them by making a gluten free cake for them. All who were served this cake said it was absolutely the best gluten free cake they had ever tasted! The wedding cake itself was perfect, and extremely good; we are still getting comments on how beautiful AND tasty it was! My advice - use The Baking Institute whenever you can; I know I will!

We enjoyed working with the Baking Institute. All appointments were conveniently scheduled and the wedding cake was made to perfection and delivered to the wedding venue on time and in an excellent condition. The staff at the Baking Institute was always available for help, and what we especially liked were the flexibility of selecting and designing the wedding cake. Unlike many other bakeries, the Baking Institute had no difficulties in customizing the cake and letting us taste a sample of our selections.

The Baking Institute was easy to work with and provided us with a beautifully, delicious cake. Actually we heard from people that it was the best cake they had ever tasted! That is quite the compliment. Unfortunately, I got too wrapped up in the night to have a piece myself so I can't validate that personally (and during the cake-cutting with my husband was too focused on him and that moment that I didn't savor it), however, it was made exactly as I had pictured it and I trust others opinions that it was yummy. The creative designer drew us up a cake in moments during the cake-cutting since I didn't want a pre-designed cake which was also very impressive.

Thank you to the baking institute for making our cake exactly what we asked for. Our cake tasted so great and we received so many compliments for how good it was and the cake exceeded our expectations as far as presentation goes. During our tasting we showed pictures of how we wanted our cake to look and when we walked into our venue I was so blown away by how beautiful our cake looked and it looked even better than we expected so thank you!
