Home Bakers in Jeddah

With the market being overrun by industrial food, the idea of baked goods being made by machines in a factory somewhere leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Enjoying a delicacy made with wholesome ingredients by expert hands, contributing to the financial well-being of an ambitious individual in the community and supporting the development of their natural talents is undoubtedly a wiser choice than enabling companies who use mysterious ingredients like Preservative E202 in their “food” products.
Many of the people behind home-based businesses are driven by a passion and love for their craft which can contribute to a higher quality product and better level of customer service than you might get from a big corporation. Given all of this, plus the many requests we have seen from people in search of the perfect birthday cake, we have compiled this list of home bakers in Jeddah. Since this is an ever-growing compilation, please contact us if you would like us to add your business.
Please be sure to click on the Facebook links for each baker, so you can see images of their work. We have not placed orders with any of these bakers ourselves, nor do we have any financial interest in their businesses. Our intention is to educate our readers about their options. If you have questions for any of the bakers, please ask them directly using the contact information we’ve provided. Now, I give you, in alphabetical order, the home bakers of Jeddah:
