About Us.
We are a family owned and operated UK business with both an online presence and a physical shop, open to the Public and Trade. The shop is located in the South Leicestershire market town of Lutterworth where the business has been trading since 2005.

The outside of the shop is a little underwhelming as it was built as an industrial unit:

The name Cook Bake Decorate was adopted after a change in our diverse and interesting product range, as we sell a broad spectrum of merchandise that includes Home Baking Tools, Equipment and Finishing materials but also South Leicestershire largest range of foil and helium balloons. So, we needed a name that encapsulates those aspects of our offering.

Once inside the shop you can see the vast array of baking materials available and the bright and vibrant colours from the top brands:

So whether you're just starting out with your first cake making project or if you are an experienced baker then we are sure to have what you need to complete your cake.
Like most small yet professional businesses we have simple aims and ambitions and the primary one is to offer value for money products with great customer service and our hands on personal approach allows us to do just that. We hope you like our website and if you’re ever in the area we would love you to pop into the shop, hopefully to buy but even a browse is appreciated.

Green plaque honour for jet engine inventor

Sir Frank Whittle honoured at site of former workshop

Pioneering inventor Sir Frank Whittle has been honoured with a green plaque, with the unveiling  taking place at the Leicestershire site where he developed the jet engine.

On Thursday, 29 June, the plaque was installed at the Ladywood Works in Leicester Road, Lutterworth where Sir Frank's workshops and test sites were located.

A representative from Rolls Royce joined other dignitaries for the unveiling of the plaque.


Sir Frank Whittle was an enormously popular choice among the people of Leicestershire to receive a green plaque. His contribution to the jet age has been recognised worldwide.

Person:Councillor Pam Posnett, county council cabinet member for green plaques

Supporters of Lutterworth Museum nominated Sir Frank for the green plaque. 

Geoff Smith, from the museum group, said: “From 1938 to 1948, the world was changed by a small group of people, led by Sir Frank, working at the Ladywood Works in Lutterworth. 

"A new aircraft power unit was designed and tested under wartime conditions and now its success can be seen in every airport around the world.”

The shortlist has also been announced for the latest list of potential green plaque recipients. The list includes an astronomer, a Crimean War nurse and a former lace factory.
