Bistro Bakes 

A mother daughter team catering since 1968 

Nic started baking at an early age with her Grandma. The Greenwood & Lumb family are infamous in Yorkshire for their outside catering with many of Nicola's aunts owning and running cafes. Mum even owned her own transport cafe in the 1990s. Mum and Grandma were both trained in Royal Icing from the Royal School of London and were at their height in the 1970s & 1980s icing and decorating everything, including Ostrich eggs. Nic carries on in their tradition and is under her mums direction on many of the big wedding cakes, but is now starting to excel in her own style. It is safe to say she comes from a very creative family with a long history in catering. Aunty Carol's buffet's were EPIC! It is rare we can get her out of retirement now.. but when we do.. my lord they are good!



We cater for your event and even provide you with cake!

Take a look at our order booklet. We get very booked up so it is wise to ask about your date as early as you can. £5 reserves your date and then you can discuss design, type and style you require later.
