More about who we are...

We are Jo & Pol, the family and founding team behind DreamCakes & Bakes

Jo, Head baker

Jo was born and raised in Greece and had a passion for baking from a very young age. For as long as she can remember, her hands were always full of flour and sugar!

Jo came to England in 2011, with a dream of one day owning a place that she could call “My kitchen”, "so I can bake my heart on a plate".

What she learned throughout this journey, is that no matter what your dreams are and no matter the obstacles you are facing, have faith that you will make it!

Jo is a fully qualified baker and professional chef with a diploma from one of UK's colleges. She also spent few weeks in one of Denmark's colleges, learning many secrets of how to create unique desserts and pastries.

Along with her sister, Polly, they created Dreamcakes & Bakes with the goal to provide the best quality cakes and pastries, with the best quality ingredients and local produce.

''Ever since I can remember myself, I loved baking. My childhood memories was full of flavours and aromas and pictures of my nan always in the kitchen baking something special. Me ending up as a baker was inevitable!"

Poli, Strategic Leader


Poli is a fully qualified tourism and hospitality manager. She is a people- person and passionate about what she does. She has an eye for antique furniture and with her excellent DIY crafting hands, she can transform almost everything.

With her skills we manage to create a cozy and very welcoming atmosphere in the shop for all of our customers.

“Making people smile and helping them create magical memories was always one of my favourite things. Growing up with the same grandmother, me and Jo, always dreamed of being in a kitchen one today, baking and bringing to life all our favourite smells and tastes of our childhood''

We are proud to have built a team, who delights in taking care of each other and serving our community. Love putting smiles on the faces of little ones, preparing wedding cakes for special couples, in other words we love every single minute of being.........Your Heanor Neighborhood Bakery.

''We sell happiness, it just happens to look like a cupcake.''
