Welcome to French Cakes Patisserie!
Our classic European bakery combines the freshest ingredients with a dash of artistry to create traditional French pastries and desserts. We offer tempting pastries, cakes, breads, chocolates and custom-designed Wedding and special-occasion cakes. Visit us in the Western Suburbs of Chicago for a sumptuous dessert for yourself, for a gift, or for that special occasion.

Congratulations to our alumnae, Cris Patolot on her venture to open a bakery. We are very proud of our former student' passion for pastry and drive for success, and know that Cris will deliver an incredible experience for their customers."

*The French Pastry School offers instruction based on the artist-apprentice model, which has been in operation in Europe for hundreds of years. This model allows constant exposure to, and observation of, master chefs, enabling students to learn their craft. The French Pastry School was recently honored with the Jean Banchet Award for Best Culinary School, and attracts world-class chefs to its teaching staff. The staff has included such names as Nicholas Lodge, internationally known for his unique skills in sugar art, and Jacquy Pfeiffer, a masterful stylist, whose creations have graced the tables of such celebrities as Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey.
