Baking Well is a social enterprise that supplies local cafes in Hackney and Tower Hamlets with delicious hand made cakes and tray bakes.

Handmade Cakes

We lovingly make cakes and traybakes like our wonderfully gooey chocolate brownies, delectable fruit crumble bakes to tart and zingy lemon drizzle cake. We also bake healthier cakes including sugar free, dairy free, gluten free and diabetic friendly.

Everything is hand made, free from preservatives and additives, fair trade and ethically sources. All delivered to your door by bicycle courier.

Social Enterprise

We offer on the job training for people that have been affected by mental health issues. The aim is for individuals to gain confidence and develop new skills whilst on placement.  Often these skills might be the ‘soft skills’ that people lose if they have not worked for some time.

Each year sixteen bake volunteers will train with Baking Well, completing rigorous health and safety requirements, on-the-job learning and personal development.
