The Cake from Sugarbox

Cake is another frustration in Dubai. I was a little stressed about where to order the cake and luckily chance upon Sugarbox from one of my sisies from N@W, so I sent immediately the photo of the cake that I wanted but their quote to me was outrageously expensive.

But I was not surprise at all, just see how I want Bella's cake to look.

Even the cupcake photo that I sent was way beyond my budget.

I was disappointed at first for not getting the cake and cupcake designs that I wanted but then again, at the last minute, I seriously made some thinking and although the design was really nice and definitely a beauty, the practical side of it is that not everybody will be able to taste it so I chose an alternative for our guests to enjoy and at the same time save on souvenirs

We decided to visit one of their stores in Mercato Mall, Jumeirah Beach road and see what they can offer.

Aside from cakes, they also have mini cakes, simple cupcakes ranging from Dhs 12.00 to 3D design tops around Dhs 17.00 - Dhs 19.00 depending on how you wanted it to look like.

We have tasted 2 flavors, red velvet and mocha which was really yummy.

We were already set our minds to order mini cupcakes for Bella's birthday then these truffles caught my eyes.

They were yummier. I swear. Also, they have these really cute boxes.

I finally decided on ordering 100 truffles with different flavors as favors to our guests.

We also bought a cupcake stand from IKEA to placed the truffle boxes

The actual cake for Bella to blow her candles was bought separately from sugarbox, it was just on standard size, just enough for cake cutting and candle blowing to make her wishes or rather our wishes for her. I told them that a simple design will do but they were nice enough to make a cute one.

and not just the design, but the cake itself was yummy too!   

The truffles was really a treat and the cake was enough for us to enjoy for a few days. haha!

Sugarbox is highly recommended.
