About The Baking Institute

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.

The cake is delicious. Our wedding cake was beautiful, and I will definitely be using them for events in the future.

My husband and I did a kind of multi-theme wedding and we were very specific and particular about exactly what we wanted on our cake. The Baking Institute did awesome! They gave us exactly what we wanted without any additional questions or problems. The day of the tasting when we explained everything they immediately started drawing out a sketch and we knew we would not be disappointed with the outcome. We were still very surprised and happy at how perfectly our cake turned out. Highly HIGHLY recommend.

Professional Network & Endorsements

These wedding cakes are true show stoppers! Each cake uniquely crafted to bring out the theme and personal elements of each wedding. During each consultation they walk you through your expectations, and you work together to make the design fit your needs. Not to mention you of course get to sample their amazing different cake options. What I love most is seeing the exact design and cake flavors all come together to form one show stopping piece for my clients big day!

We use the Baking Institute here at Klein Creek for all of our wedding cakes as well as our sweets tables. They always deliver the cakes on time and in beautiful shape! They are so easy to work with, I just send them over the final count a few days before the wedding and I know it will show up that morning without me having to call and make sure. Thanks Baking Institute!

Igor makes the tastiest cakes and sweets! Is always a joy to work with and a great guide into the sweet treats world!

Great cakes, great sweets highly recommend.
