The Cake Store started life as Slatter’s Bakery, with one shop in Brockley, South London in the early 1900’s.

Founded by Tom Slatter, it is now a third generation family business, having been run by Tom’s son Ken from the 1960’s to the mid 80’s, when Ken’s own sons Kevin and Tim took the helm.

The brothers continue to run this very successful business, steering it through the advent of internet shopping by introducing The Cake Store’s online ordering system and The Brilliant Bakers mail order cakes.

When Ken Slatter was 18 in 1955 and attending the National Bakery School, he won his first gold medal at the British Bakery annual competition at Caxton Hall. He was studying speciality courses in Continental Confectionery, Hand-Made Chocolates and Exhibition Cake Decorating and went on to win 34 gold and silver medals during his career, being the only student ever to have twice won the coveted gold medal in the National Student Competition Founders Cup and 3 consecutive gold medals at Hotelympia (eventually being barred from entering to give other contestants a chance!)

The Wedding department at The Cake Store has been headed by cake designer Helen Mighell since 2007, who has created most of the wedding cakes seen on these pages and is completed by Laura Cook, the wedding cake coordinator.

The start of 2014 sees exciting developments within The Cake Store’s wedding department, with the launch of a superb new range of cakes and favors for the forthcoming season.

Our dedicated team of cake making specialists will help guide you through every step of planning and designing the cake of your dreams or executing multiple cakes for a corporate event.

Our team is headed by Steven Howard, our multi-award winning cake designer, and Director.
