Rock Bakehouse is a private home kitchen on Gascony Avenue in West Hampstead. They started baking and selling cakes at markets in 2011, but soon realised that customers didn't want to just buy cakes, but make ones of their own, which could be just as beautiful.
Now Rock Bakehouse also provide decorating classes that range from cupcakes to tiered celebration cakes. If you have ever thought how fun it might be to make your own wedding cake, then you can learn how to make a spectacular design here. If you're not quite confident enough to show your work off on the big day, then why not hire Rock Bakehouse for your Hen Party? I think a cake filled with cake is far more exciting than a cake filled with a scarcely clad dancer.
