The Cakery is the brainchild of Aamina Jehangir, a young entrepreneur and extremely talented baker, which is located right opposite the famous ice cream parlor called The Hot Spot in Tauheed commercial area, Defence phase 5.
I first chanced upon the Facebook page of The Cakery and was immediately smitten by the photos of Aamina's delectable-looking cakes.
The Cakery is not a spacious cafe or hustling bustling eatery full of staff and customers.
It is a quaint, quiet little nook where you can enjoy some delicious baked sweet goodies, savory snacks and beverages in peace and quiet.
The undisputed "champ" of The Cakery - Red Velvet cupcake topped with cream cheese frosting, priced at Rs 140
Undoubtedly, Red Velvet cake (also available in bigger sizes) is the star of the menu at the Cakery.
A slightly melted Red Velvet cupcake and a Peanut Butter cupcake. Rs 140 each.
The cream cheese frosting on the Red Velvet cupcake didn't stand much chance under the Karachi June heat. Who does? :)
I tasted the Peanut Butter cupcake and found the icing too sweet for my taste. However, I admit that I have never been a big fan of peanut butter any way.
Chocolate Ganache cupcake (left) and Hazelnut Stuffed cupcake (right) - again, Rs 140 each.
The latter has a blob/core of Nutella inside, which you get to eat as you break apart the cupcake while eating it. Hence the name. :)
I love the Cakery's Hazelnut cupcake! It is truly one-of-a-kind!
The slightly melted frosting is because of the excessive June heat of Karachi (yes, this post got a bit <*cough*> late in getting published).
By the time the cupcake box reached our home, it had to be instantly placed inside the fridge!
Double Chocolate cupcake - Rs 140
Verdict: The Cakery's baked goods are definitely overpriced, but the great taste and superior quality of ingredients used, are guaranteed. If you want to support a young entreprenuer who works hard upon each product and regularly creates new and interesting culinary innovations, then do head over to the Cakery in Tauheed Commercial area, or pick up the phone to place your order.
