Kidd's Cakes and Bakery, Christchurch, the original cake specialists, was started way back in 1986 by owner Martin Meehan. With humble beginnings, Martin started making cakes in the converted garage of his family home. After just one year of hard work, Kidds Cakes and Bakery was well established and ready for a move to the retail premises at 244 Cranford street in St. Albans, Christchurch, and we have been there ever since.

Originally specialising in decorated cakes for weddings and birthdays, we expanded our profile and now operate as a full line bakery with everything we sell baked fresh by us. Our signature product remains our decorative cakes. Over the years we have supplied over 50,000 special occasion cakes. We take pride in providing expert advice and designing each cake individually with the greatest attention to detail, creating everlasting memories for those big occasions in life; birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, corporate functions or dinner parties. With our award winning bakers and cake decorators, we are proud to stand behind the quality of our cakes.

Through the years we have changed much and grown in both size and reputation, but we have always kept true to our original philosophy; to use only the best ingredients to produce high quality cakes and bakery products, on time, and to your specification.
Come in and see us and our delicious range of breads, pies, biscuits and small cakes. Treat yourself to one of our delectable gateaux and desserts and talk to us about your birthday or special event cake, and when that big day arrives we can make the perfect wedding cake for you no matter how simple or elaborate, large or small.
