It is natural to be very picky about the things that matter to you. Cakes matter. When you want to be very specific about your delight, the ones on display do not quite cut the cake

Sometimes cakes are the most exciting part of an event. Cakes are practically the heart of birthdays and anniversary celebrations. 

Alas, finding a bakery that customizes cakes according to your taste and preference remains elusive. Although you are spending a lot of money on the cakes, they fail to offer novelty and excitement.

Bakeries in Bangladesh do not have much to offer when it comes to customizing cakes at a reasonable cost. They have limited flavours and similar designs. However much you want your cake to stand out and be a cake to remember, all you get to customize is the text on top of your cake. 

Good news is many passionate bakers have taken the initiative to open online bakeries that create customized cakes for the sole purpose of creating unique designs that suit their customer’s needs. 

These online bakeries provide a variety of cake and frosting flavours to choose from. It does not matter if you want a vegan or a gluten-free cake; they will make it for you—usually within a day, and at a reasonable cost. 

You can even experiment with flavours. Mint, raspberry, banana, lemon, blueberry, hazelnut, dark chocolate, caramel—most of these stores offer a variety of uncommon flavours. For frosting, you can choose from mirror glazed, fondant or butter-cream; or just go for chocolate ganache for traditional mud cakes. 

Best part, they are all homemade!
