It’s not a surprise I (literally the biggest dessert-holic ever) have not tried SEVERAL cakes around Dubai. What stands out for me are below 😉
A simple Summary of the below post if you’re too lazy to scroll all the way down 😆 ;
- Chocolate Cake I would go for Sugaholic’s Flake Cake OR the Nutella Cheesecake.
- Classic Red Velvet Cake (with Cream Cheese or Vanilla Icing) Definitely Magnolia Bakery
- However, if I wanted the same Red Velvet as a Cheesecake I would go for Brownie Point or Cheesecake Factory!
- If you’re a chocolate lover like I am and want your Red Velvet Cake with Oreos and chocolate cream cheese – Sugarmoo is going to save your day!!!
- Get out of your comfort zone? try Melange Dubai’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake, Sugaholic’s Rose and Pistachio Cake Brownie Point’s Saffron and Pistachio Cake!!!
1. Sugaholic Bakeshop
The most important thing about Sugaholic that people don’t understand – You GET what you ASK FOR. A few pointers that’ll help you make the right decision;
– If you opt for a FERRERO ROCHER cake the NUTS in the ganache will absorb the moisture from the cake and will make the cake dry.
– If your aim is just to make the CAKE look GOOD with a LOT of Fondant Designs – the Fondant/Marzipan once again will absorb the moisture from your cake. In conclusion; do not get a highly decorated Fondant Cake.
– Why is Sugaholic’s Fondant so thick most of the time? To support everything that goes on top of it.
– I’ve heard several people say “Their Flakes Cake is too sweet”. I’ve honestly had Raw Flakes chocolate and they pretty much taste the same to me – Don’t Opt for something you know you may not like.
THANK YOU @sugaholicbakeshop for the most delicious gift!!! ❤️❤️ This cake made purely of flakes was super tasty, moist and chocolatyy (just as I like it)! Sugaholic, you made my day 💋💋!! You guys definitely make one of the best cakes in town!! Foodies; I usually see reviews on Zomato that claim their cakes are too dry. The chemistry of a cake is, if you choose Ferrero as your cake flavor, the nuts soak all the natural moisture. Additionally, if you plan on having a fondant cake, the same issue will arise.
I don't ride on the #crazy #train , I drive it 🙅🏻🚆 I thought I was #crazy until I saw this this #masterpiece #Thomas #train #cake done by @sugaholicbakeshop for Ziad's 2nd #birthday 😱 A #glimpse of this at the #Sugaholic store was enough to take me back to my childhood and remind me how lame birthday cakes were 20 years ago 😂 A #Friday #shoutout for the #immense #creativity, #hard #work, and #effort that went into this cake 🙏🏻🙏🏻 It tells us how talented and accommodating the bakers at @sugaholicbakeshop are, and they #never #ever #say #no! 💯 #gocray #skyisthelimit #ormaybeitisnt 🤔 You just listened to: #Sham from #Aisha 🌤
2. Sugarmoo Desserts
Not only is Sugarmoo’s Redvelvet cake supple and loaded with flavor; they’ve played it smart and enhanced the flavor by adding Oreo chunks in their chocolate cream cheese icing. They DEFINITELY aren’t stingy in the amount of icing they apply between every layer. Although they claim it feeds around 8 people, I’m certain it can definitely satisfy way more. Looks can be deceiving – each slice MAY look small to you but it is VERY VERY rich!
As far as their chocolate cake is concerned – they have put a crazy amount of frosting between each layer (as you can see in the below picture). It was surprisingly not too sweet, the sponge was soft and the cake is lighter in comparison to their Red Velvet Cake.
Here's how the "#KissMe Cake" from @sugarmoodesserts looks on the inside!! Look at that dense Red Velvet cake with #Oreo chunks, chocolate & cream cheese ganache! YUMMM!! Kiss Me Cake – Signature Redvelvet Cake with Oreo crunch, chocolate ganache and cream cheese icing to a sweet kissable lips making you want to kiss him/her before you cut for a slice – tasted soooooo GOOD [AED200] 😈❤️
Thank you @sugarmoodesserts for these most awesome deliveries 💝🎁 This was my most #favorite, absolutely #gorgeous looking '#RedVelvet Cake' [AED150] This #cake is smeared in #chocolate #fudge, #CreamCheese and Oreo #cookie crumbles. It is even LAYERED beautifully with #OREO #Frosting 😍😍 Guys you must give them a shot at your next party! Please take a few seconds to stare at this beautiful mess 👀
3. The Coffee Club MiddleEast
It’s my first time I’ve come across a Gold Cake. This Chocolate Fudge Cake is beyond sinful. It is rich, creamy and has a very fudge-like texture. I preferred heating it for about 10 seconds before indulging in it to bring out the flavor 😳 . The whole chocolate fudge cake is available upon request and pre-order.
Today I reached a milestone, I k'not (😄) explain how happy I am! I want to thank each and everyone of you for supporting me, reposting my pictures, participating in my giveaways and most importantly trying out everything I indulge in ❤️! To celebrate I bought a Gold 'Chocolate Fudge' Cake from @TheCoffeeClubME and guys, it is one of the best cakes I've had. It looks magnificent and tastes as good!! If you ever need to buy affordable gold, this ones for you 😄 (AED24/slice) @buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast
4. Sukar House of Desserts
The Kunafa Cheesecake is the best flavor from Sukar! Forget the ol’ regular cakes that are available at every single party! Bring out the Kunafa cheesecake and it’ll definitely WOW your guests 😉 . The cake is accompanied with a sugar syrup that has to be poured on every slice. It is delicious!! If you don’t put nuf syrup, the cake will come off as dry.
5. Magnolia Bakery
Out of all the flavors, my favourites are the Devils Chocolate Cake, Red Velvet with Vanilla Cream and Lotus Cheesecake!
6. Cheesecake Factory
Does Cheesecake need any introduction? And yes, whole cakes are available 😉 My favorite – Oreo cheesecake!
7. Lavender Cake from Culinary Boutique
I have personally never tried a Lavender Cake and I never expected this particular one to taste this good. The flavor is pretty powerful and it’s a weee bit higher on my ‘Sweetness Scale’.
8. Honey Cake from Spinneys
This definitely isn’t the most beautiful cake you will come across but it (I guarantee) IS a very tasty cake + light + juicy! If you want something written on it; head over to any bakery close-by. I’m pretty sure they won’t mind writing a message for you with a small charge ofcourse 😉 . Or better yet, you can purchase several fondant figures from Sugaholic (must pre-order) or or buy cute little/massive candles and dump ’em all on the cake! 😆
Note: The Honey Cake in Carrefour has more cream and less sponge whereas the one served in Spinneys has more flavor and consists of far more sponge than cream (which I prefer)
9. Baked Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Crumble [AED40 (small portion enough for 2) AED60 (to share)] from The Black Lion
Fantastic Cheesecake with mouthwatering flavor. You may be astounded by the small size of one cheesecake but fear not, it’s excessively rich and hard to finish (ESPECIALLY after a meal >_<)
10. Baked Cheesecake (with Blueberry Sauce) [AED34 (sufficient for 2-3)] from Clinton St. Bakery Dubai
Majority of the places in Dubai always serve no-bake cheesecakes. If you’re looking for a non-chilled baked cheesecake, HERE GOES!;
Ahhhh ❤️ You know what's #different about this #delicious #cheesecake? It's #BAKED!! [AED34] (Notice the top baked layer 👀) I've been to so (so so so) many restaurants & MOST of the time all the cheesecakes served are 'NO-BAKE Cheesecakes' (eg: #KFC, #PizzaHut, etc)! – @ClintonStDubai Menu Tasting Sesh🍴
Delicious flavor, stiff in composition and very rich/filling.
11. Ricotta Cheesecake with Caramel Topping [AED45 (sufficient for 2)] from Fratelli La Bufala
The texture of this cheesecake is not that smooth unlike other cheesecakes. It’s more rugged and semi-stiff but nonetheless it was amazing!
#Homemade #Ricotta Cheesecake with Caramel topping at my menu tasting session @fratellilabufala_uae 😍 [AED45] Unlike other #cheesecakes, this is not velvety and smooth. It had a very rugged texture and consistency which I actually #LOVED 😍. The #caramel too was diluted – not thick and rich making it seem like this cheesecake was #healthy 😆 #denial
12. Strawberry Cheesecake from Costa UAE
Costa was falling back when it came to their Desserts. But now they’ve definitely upped their game and serve one of the best cheesecakes I’ve had!! Their Strawberry cheesecake is very light in texture and phenomenal in taste!
13. Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake from Melange Dubai [6 inch for AED150 – enough for atleast 8/10 people]
This Cake (as you can see in the video) is accompanied with Salted Caramel syringes and has Salted Caramel Icing. The taste is exceptional and this is indeed one of the best and most unique cakes I’ve had in Dubai!
*Wait for it* Chocolate salted caramel cake with #SaltedCaramel syringes and Salted Caramel Icing…. One of the BEST CAKES I've had!! [AED200 for 6inches diameter cake – enough for 8/10 people] @melangedubai you don't fail to #amuse me! This was #AMAZING!!! 😭😍❤️ and one of the most unique cakes I've ever had!! THIS MUST BE YOUR NEXT #BIRTHDAY #CAKE (NAOMIS favourite cakes in dubai – Direct Link in Instagram Bio)
14. Dulce De Leche Cheesecake from Gaucho Dubai
15. Red Velvet Cheesecake, New York Style Cheesecake and Saffron & Pistachio Cake from Brownie Point [AED 15 for a slice and whole cakes available]
Brownie Point has one of the best Red Velvet Cheesecakes in town. You will only believe how decadent it is when you consume it. One slice is rich enough to fill you and probably your friend as well (ITS EGGLESS TOO). Moreover their saffron and pistachio cake is one of the most unique flavors I have come across. It is a fantastic combination and is a great option for people who aren’t fans of chocolate.
The New York cheesecake on the other hand once again has ticked all boxes. The crust is perfectly done whereas the cake is beautifully baked with perfect texture and taste.
16. Nutella Cheesecake from Carluccious [AED 38 for a slice]
One of the best Nutella Cheesecake’s I’ve ever had! Soft yet thick + Delicious + Good Quality, a combination that is hard to find these days!
