About Us

Classic Cakes is a family run business which was born in 1989, but our story goes back much further!

In 1979 Tracey started working for her father (Master Baker, Conrad Drogie) who had several bakeries all around Manchester, where she began to develop her skills in cake decorating.

Fast forward several years/college courses later, Tracey’s father had sold his bakeries and Tracey took her own path continuing to concentrate more on celebration cakes.

1989 – Tracey has set up Classic Cakes, working from home with a small cake shop in Heaton Moor where she would display her edible works of art.

2000 – 11 Years since Classic Cakes was established and 11 years of growth, Classic Cakes was now a well established Cake decorator in the Heatons.

Out growing her home work area and her small shop in Heaton Moor Tracey needed a larger premises for herself and her staff – thats when we opened our first shop in Reddish.

2010 – Outgrowing our current shop and in need of more space for larger ovens and more work space, we moved across the road in Reddish to our current cake shop – 35 Gorton Road, where Tracey’s husband and long time baker Ron started to work at Classic Cakes full time.

This year Classic Cakes introduced small cakes to buy in store including Cupcakes, Rocky Roads and our ever so popular Cornflake Squares!

Classic Cakes continues to grow and now offers online deliveries on Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo.

Over the years we have become a well known, well sort-after cake shop creating edible master pieces for thousands of customers including many famous faces including singers, footballers, actors and many many more!
