“I want us all to enjoy traditional, flavoursome teatime cakes which we savoured as children. There is nothing more enjoyable than having afternoon tea in calming surroundings, served on pretty china, with spotless white linen tablecloths and napkins. Sheer Heaven!”
“Cakes that tickle your taste buds every time!”
It is important that a cake looks and tastes delectable – there are no half measures. AJ’s strongly believe that good quality ingredients, a well-balanced recipe and tender loving care goes into making beautiful cakes.
As ingredients are an important factor, AJ's use a good quality butter, locally sourced free range eggs, full fat milk and cream, and fresh fruit and vegetables whenever possible as these add a natural sweetness and moisture to the bake.
All cakes displayed in The Shop have gone through an extensive process to ensure they look presentable and taste delicious. To this end, AJ’s have used the services of local Taste Testing Teams to ensure the Bakers high standards are met.
“Our customers are important
AJ’s Classic Cakes provide a personal service to everyone irrespective of whether the customer wishes to purchase a box of cakes from The Shop or place a bespoke order with the Baker.
The business is registered with Solihull Borough Council and a Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering has been successfully completed to ensure hygiene standards are maintained
