Every day is a cause for celebration, and as the popular saying goes, “if there’s cake, then it’s a party.” This festive establishment is taking those daily special moments to the next level by bringing sweet-treats to your loved ones for all different occasions.
“Next level” is only a mere understatement when it comes to the capabilities of this delivery service’s offerings. Flip through the Cake Shop’s website, Talabat menu and Instagram account, and everything you’ll see is only the tip of the iceberg! Intricate creations come in a variety of sizes and colors, creating whimsical shapes and detailed images catering to the customer’s request and personality. “Our biggest inspiration is our clients!” says co-founder Mariam Jaffar, who poses as the General Manager and Creative Mind of the concept, along with her husband Ahmed Buhaimed who handles sales and operations
“It all started with Kuwait’s cupcake craze,” Mariam laughs as we settle into The Cake Shop’s operating office, a brightly lit room concealed just steps away from the main kitchen where the magic happens. “That’s what inspired me to build this concept in the first place. And since then, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to make sure that people will always get the perfect cake, cupcakes, or any other treats that they’d envisioned for their events.” And how do they do that? Creativity, quality and care!
The Cake Shop’s main ethos is quality. They stay consistent with top quality ingredients, using only the best of the best with what goes into their cakes, and they do the same with the staff they hire to help create these works of art. The kitchen hosts impressive bakers and decorators who transform the desserts into masterpieces. Care comes in with their trusty customer service, available from 9 am to 9 pm to ensure smooth sailing from a logistics perspective, making sure your treats get delivered safely and without delay.
Creativity is a huge characteristic that The Cake Shop prides itself in. With an entire business dedicated to customization, they are prepared to show that anything is possible, and if it’s what you want, you’ll get it. Disney and Marvel character creations tend to be a popular choice for those who feel a tight bond with the fantastical world. From Spiderman to Mickey Mouse, they can do it all. If real-life characters are your thing, they also specialize in creating cakes to resemble a Chanel handbag for the fashionista, Dettol packaging for the clean-freak, and even professional uniform cakes to congratulate the new Doctor for finishing Medical School, for example.
Mother’s Day can be celebrated with a trio of cakes adorned with fresh flowers, (you read that correctly, The Cake Shop incorporates both sugar and fresh flowers into their cake and cupcake designs) to show mothers and grandmothers how special they are. Baby-themed cupcakes, cakes and cake-pops are ideal for welcoming babies of close friends and family members into the world. An array of mini cakes and elegant bundts would add the loveliest touch to Friday afternoon tea. A variety of sports team and activity themed cakes that would make any supporter squeal with excitement on their birthday. They even have a savory Sandwich Cake, made with labneh, olives, cucumber and your choice of white or brown bread – the options really are limitless!
Personalized cupcakes varying in flavor can also be requested and molded to resemble or express anything your heart may desire. Use them to spell out “Happy Birthday”, “Get Well Soon,” or anything else you could think of. They also make for great edible bouquets, which can also be made using a board to complete the look. What’s also great about the cupcakes is that they can come on personalized boards designed specifically to suit your theme. The boards may not be edible, but they truly are a work of art, and The Cake Shop has revolutionized this concept, taking it one-step further than your average specialty bakery.
Customized cake pops and truffles are also made in this haven to add a whimsy that will complete the vision of any gift or event you may be planning.
What’s cuter than miniature bride and groom cake pops displayed in the middle of your bridal shower? And we can’t think of anything more delectable than their gorgeous cake truffles, available in chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, and the seasonally enjoyed carrot and pumpkin flavors. These surely make for the perfect gift for a loved one, a hostess, or even yourself when you just need a treat!
Like the cupcakes, brownies can come frosted with any detailing you like, and The Cake Shop won’t skimp on suggestions to inspire you! Believe us when we say, after trying the brownie in its natural form, that The Cake Shop has truly mastered this dessert. With a fudgy succulence so decadent and delicious, it’s no wonder that the brownies are Mariam’s personal favorite! Ahmed appreciates them too, but his go-to treats are the classic coffee sweets, which fare popular during Ramadan, receptions and diwaniyas.
The Cake Shop also makes your life easier by putting together gift-sets. These sets are made according to theme, and include, for instance, an “It’s a Boy!” cake, a fresh bouquet, balloons and a congratulatory card. They have other options for other occasions too (hint to all of those stressing about Mother’s Day this month.)
The Cake Shop is truly a gem in Kuwait. Ready to meet all of our needs to make all types of celebrations come alive, no occasion is too big or small for them, so be sure to try them out for your next event.
