About Lovin Oven Cakery

Lovin Oven Cakery

Since 1930, our family has been baking quality products for dessert lovers like you. Our story begins with my father-in-law, John Slove, being hired to work as an apprentice in a Chicago bakery. While there he learned everything there is to know about baking. Then, in 1946, he and my mother-in-law, Grace, opened their own bakery on Diversey Avenue in Chicago – Slove Bakery. Their goal was to produce great quality desserts and provide excellent customer service: he did the baking; she the handshaking. Through hard work and determination, they grew the business and the bakery’s reputation as one of the finest in the Chicagoland area.

    Darling bakery with delicious and unique cakes. Our wedding cake was beautiful and the groom’s cake turned out exactly the way I had hoped it would. Staff was professional and easy to work with.

    We use Lovin Oven as our required vendor for the wedding cake. The cakes are always fresh and nice and soft. The detailing in the cake is amazing. Very professional and easy to work with. They are the only vendor that our couples are required to go through.
