Cake Magic

All Things Baked and Beautiful...

At The Cake Academy we live, breathe and of course enjoy eating a lot of cake!

Were a group of passionate cake creators who love nothing better than designing the most amazing moist, delicious, stunning cakes. We came together two years ago with a single mission; to bring you breath taking, show stopping, taste-sensational cake!  

And so the Cake Academy was born!

Our brand was created from within Avana Bakeries, based in Newport South Wales and originally established in 1890. Many of our bakers have been refining our recipes, creatively crafting our cakes and magically embellishing them for many, many years. The specialist skills needed to make the perfect cake have been passed down from generation to generation.


we'll do the baking...

Here at The Cake Academy we’re a mixed bunch, from experienced food industry professionals to gifted amateurs whose talent made them rise to the top (pun intended) and turn to a career in baking.

We have a range of unique novelty cakes, beautiful themed seasonal cakes, large traditional cakes, cupcakes, decorate your own cakes perfect for Weddings and much, much more. We also offer a Bespoke cake service to create something unique and extra special just for you.

We constantly pool our experience and expertise, dream up new ideas and make the existing ones better because what matters to us is that unforgettable ‘cake moment’ when you open that special box and say ‘wow’...     


Bespoke Cakes

Creativity is at the heart of everything we do here at The Cake Academy Bakery, it’s been the same since we started baking, over 125 years ago. Many of the most inspiring creations we’ve been asked to bake have been our bespoke cakes, crafted exclusively for our customers. We draw inspiration from your themes, trends and interests to handcraft a completely bespoke design.

We're really proud of each cake that leaves our bakery, paying attention to each meticulous detail, enabling us to build on our reputation for beautiful designs and delicious cake. This reputation has seen us create bespoke designs for high profile individuals and private events which include: Olympic Gold medallist Helen Glover and TV presenter Steve Backshall’s Wedding (featured in Hello!), The Cinnamon Club’s 15th Anniversary with Vivek Singh and The Pride of Wales Awards with Alesha Dixon.

To arrange a consultation, please get in touch with us through our website or by phone on 0800 042 0160. The starting price for a bespoke design is £750.
