Must Try Cake shops in Bangalore
When I first wrote this post, I wanted to share my top 6 favourite cake shops in Bangalore. But so much has changed in the past 5 years and I am going to add some more of the best cake brands in Bangalore. I am not that big fan of the chains like Sweet Chariot, Just bake etc. So there you go, in no particular order:
Patisserie Nitash, Frazer Town – Best Cake Store in Bangalore
Nitash has been an absolute favourite of mine for the past few years and I would definitely rate his cakes as one of the best cake shops in Bangalore. Nitash does not have a shop of his own but he delivers to your house if you live in the vicinity of Frazer town. His cakes are out of this world and it is surprising that we have such a wide array of delicious cakes to choose from. In addition to cakes, he also does other amazing desserts.
Flavors to try: Heaven’s Slice (Mars, Kit Kat, Ferrero Rocher), Piedmontese, Peanut Butter and Oreo Symphony, Strawberry and Banana Bagatelle, New York Cheesecake
Pros: Delicious cakes, Delivers it home, Friendly, Reasonably Priced
Cons: No shop, Faithful to loyal customers but can sometimes deny others
Truffles (Ice & Spice), Various Outlets – One of the most famous cake shops in Bangalore
This is the go-to place to go and one of the top cake shops in Bangalore if you love chocolate cakes. Since it is located in multiple areas around Bangalore, they are quite accessible. Since this doubles as a cafe in addition to its cake business, you can go here to have a delicious burger too. Also, this is the only place that accepts last minute wedding cake orders. My sister’s reception cake was gobbled by the guests in a matter of minutes. Definitely makes some of the best cakes in Bangalore.
Flavors to try: Chocolate Truffle, Ferrero Rocher Cake
Pros: Accessibility, Reasonably Priced, Awesome cakes and burgers
Cons: Home delivery restricted, Does not accept phone orders for customized cakes.
Spoonful of Sugar (Koramangala and Indira Nagar) – Permanently Closed – Update 2019
“It is such a pity that this one closed. They used to be one of my favourites but their quality had gone down in the past few years.”
“Desserts is stressed spelt backwards”. That is what it says when you enter this cute little café. Known for its desserts which are unique and different from other cake shops, Spoonful has been another favoured outlet of mine. Whether it is celebrating an event or a cheer-me-up dessert or a heartwarming meal, Spoonful has plenty of options for you. Also one of the few places in Bangalore that allow dogs inside.
Flavors to try: Oreo Cheesecake, Banoffee Pie, Salted Caramel Cake, Exotic fruit cake
Pros: Wide array of flavours to choose from, Unique, Exceptional
Cons: Very Expensive
Glen’s Bakehouse (Indira Nagar)
They have not been around for long but they are already among the most crowded cafes in town. Again, in addition to being one of the best bakery in Bangalore, they are a great haunt for good breakfast. An additional plus is that they are open all day. Location is also an added plus since they are located right on 100 feet road, next to the famous brewhouse, Toit.
Flavors to try: Red Velvet Cake, New York Cheesecake
Pros: Location, location, location in addition to their cakes of course.
Cons: Flavors are limited, very crowded and you may end up waiting for a while even if you go to collect a cake.
Bengaluru Baking Company (J W Marriot, Bangalore)
BBC is definitely the place for if you are searching for the best fruit cake in Bangalore. They are comfortably located inside the J W Marriot hotel, near U B City, Bangalore. I have not had many of their cakes but the ones I did, have been absolutely out of this world. Definitely, a must try place if you are in M.G road, Bangalore.
Flavors to try: Fruitcake, Red Velvet Cake
Pros: Still experimenting, so hard to say
Bite Me Cupcakes (Indira Nagar and Koramangala)
They don’t have a shop anymore but they do online cake delivery in Bangalore these days.
Technically they do not fall into the category of a cake shop since they make only bub cupcakes which are in reality tiny cupcakes. But they are too awesome to be not mentioned on this list. With a splendid assortment of cupcakes to choose from, Bite me cupcakes are here to stay for a really long time. I know of two outlets and both of them serve mouthwatering cupcakes. I took their cupcakes once to an orphanage and the kids there absolutely loved it.
Flavors to try: Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Mint, Blueberry, Strawberry and the Classic Vanilla.
Pros: Delicious, conveniently located, does customized cupcakes.
Cons: They make only cupcakes, Card machine is complex.
There are three other shops that almost made it to this list, Lavonne has in the recent years become the best cake shop in Bangalore, Corner House (Technically the best ice cream shop) and Smoor.
Signing off this time with a beautiful picture of a dessert combo from 3 of the above mentioned cake shops.
