The Cake Store


The Cake Store

Full Description


The Cake Store began its journey from a humble bakery shop in Brockley, South East London, way back in the early 1900’s. Slatter’s Bakery was a very popular and traditional bakers, started by Tom Slatter and continued by his son Ken Slatter.

Un-tampered ingredients, baked in a coal fired oven made bread of unforgettable quality and taste. A forgotten skill that was taken from the nation by supermarkets and irresponsibly turned into, the very cheap, mass produced and over manufactured product we are generally offered today .

Ken Slatter, 69 years old, says “ My father was an excellent craftsman; He had no formal training and therefore was determined to send me to the National Bakery School. I was a student there from 1955 to 1957 and after completing the National Bakery Diploma and the final City and Guilds courses. I continued evening specialty courses in continental confectionary, hand made chocolates and exhibition cake decorating. After completing the formal and practical studies, I then taught evening students, exhibition cake decorating and final City and Guilds for some years at the National Bakery School.”
