We are a small batch home bakery based in North Leeds, specialising in (bespoke) biscuits, fruit pies & cakes from the Continent. You can buy our treats online and at local markets.
We exist by virtue of the fact that we want to offer something different. Not something better, the English baking tradition is already great! Instead we offer a choice beyond what your preferred slice of cake, celebration cake or wedding cake might be. Neither of us are from the UK, after moving here we wanted to share the baked treats that we grew up with and how we always celebrated special occasions such as birthdays, christenings, marriages and anniversaries.
Call it Rustic/ Artisan
What we produce today is an alternative that is only ever so subtly different. We’re taking you on a little detour from the everyday, the usual. Our aim with Bloom Bakers is to add flavour and diversify the cake landscape. We are excited most by how cake and biscuits can taste, and that’s why we keep our products simple. We strip them back to their essence. We don’t cover them up in icing, but celebrate the artisan/rustic look of real pastry, real cake, real pie.
What makes the difference in our products is that we come from baking traditions that use a lot of nuts, cinnamon, vanilla sugar, red currants, etc., ingredients that many traditional English recipes do not usually call for. So, while it’s still a cake or a familiar looking biscuit, the flavours might just have a bit more depth to them.
Our offering has proved decidedly popular as we ship our goods all over the country! We have even had the occasional request from the Continent.
So in short, we create delicious Northern European treats in the heart of Yorkshire.
