Upmarket cake shop and café chain Konditor & Cook plans to open its sixth outlet in London in the autumn, which will also offer baking classes and wedding cake consultations.

The new branch, located at a prime site close to London’s South Bank, will be the first in the chain to offer baking classes and will act as a central point for custo-mers to discuss their wedding cake requirements.

The six-shop company currently handles orders for its wedding cakes through its individual stores, with all its cakes baked and decorated at each of the sites.

The company recently teamed up with four designers to launch a range of limited-edition Cakes by Creatives. A donation of 50p from each cake sold in June and July will go to The Salvation Army.
