About

Founded more than 30 years ago as a locally owned bakery, Classic Cake has grown into a leading dessert company well-known for cakes, pastries, artisan chocolates and confections of all kinds along with custom designed desserts of weddings and special occasions. Led by executive pastry chef Robert Bennett, the bakery has brought its sweetness to Center City residents, workers, commuters and visitors with the opening of the new Classic Cake Bakery & Café located at 1617 JFK Boulevard and introducing a savory café menu, featuring artisan sandwiches, soups and house-made and handcrafted salads. Passers-by are able to watch culinary magic from either the 83-foot frontage on JFK Boulevard and clients can host their own event right on-site.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

The Consultation & Tasting
Collaboration is something we welcome. Schedule a complimentary consultation and tasting at either of our retail locations. A Classic Cake consultant will guide you with questions about event-related specifics and discuss popular trends, event themes and flavors of the season.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

The latest trend in wedding cake design is truly anything one’s heart desires. While that may seem cliché, couples are no longer bound to tradition. From the cake itself to pastry buffets, table centerpieces and sweet-ending favors, the infinite varieties appeal to both the eye and palette. To succeed, a good tip is to start planning early.
