In 2007 Kuwait’s sweet tooth craving was filled in a big way with the creation of Cake & Bake. Now with ten branches across the country and another coming soon, their delicious cakes have become the go-to for anyone looking to impress dinner hosts, or mark special occasions. From their best selling red velvet cake to the Galaxy cake, chocolate sponge layered with milk chocolate mousse, caramel, hazelnut and galaxy chocolate, Cake & Bake has truly set a high bar for desserts in Kuwait.
Now you can make your special day even more intimate with a personalized cake made especially for you. We got a sneak peek into the Cake & Bake factory to see how they make delicious cakes in any shape you want.
It starts with your innermost happy place, your favorite movie, hobby or even brand. Choose from their look book of cakes designed in the shape of a Canon DSLR camera, an Apple computer logo or a Ferrari racecar. Want something for the posh young lady in your life? Watch her amazement as you unveil their “A Gift from Tiffany’s” cake. Create the perfect birthday for the movie buff in your life with their cinema inspired “It’s Showtime” cake complete with popcorn, a red carpet and even a movie reel. If nothing in their look book grabs you, Cake & Bake invites their customers to provide a photo so they can create your perfect sweet delight.
We had the chance to take a tour of their amazing factory and find out exactly what goes into making these cakes. They start with the cake type. Customers choose between Chocolate or vanilla sponge cake, vanilla or chocolate pound cake, pistachio, cupcake cake, or red velvet. Each is baked to perfection then brought into their special cake room the each order is put together and decorated by a team of expert designers and bakers.
The next step is by evening out your baked cake type. Your choices are then filled with chocolate cream, black forest, flake, fresh fruits, vanilla cream, Kit Kat, strawberry or raspberry jam, pistachio, hazelnut cream, Snickers or cream cheese. You can choose as many as your sweet tooth desires. Then they cover the cake with your choice of chocolate or vanilla cream, for swirling and flowing decorations, or the amazing marzipan for detailed cakes with specific shapes.
Finally, the fun part: decorating the cake. Beneath the enormous factory at Cake & Bake is a basement workshop where all the designs begin. Walls are lined with styrofoam cut outs of Mickey Mouse, Disney characters like the snowman Olaf from the hit movie Frozen, cameras and gift boxes. Upstairs the team creates a marzipan outer color base, and edible details. Finally, the exact process of putting it all together is where your cake really comes to life with little details that are bound to make any special occasion truly memorable.
