Got a cake craving and just happened to be in (or going) to Hong Kong? Here are some of the best shops to head to where they do cake just right though fair warning, you are bound to get hooked!
Sugar Me Kissery
Some cakes will not only amaze you with their taste but their appearance too especially from Sugar Me Kissery. Located on Bedford Road, a short walk from Dorsett Mongkok, it specialises in bespoke cakes with exquisite sugar work; keeping to the current TV trend, why not ask them to make a Wednesday Addams cake! You also get ready-to-go cakes with flavours such as chocolate, Guinness dark beer and red velvet and a variety of fillings (like Baileys buttercream and dark chocolate ganache) though you need to order in advance.
If you are one of those individuals who cannot enjoy cake as others do due to dietary restrictions, then Infiniti C has got you covered! It offers cakes that come with gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free options as well as those that are keto and vegan-friendly too. There are branches across the city including at the Ocean Terminal of Harbour City, easy to reach for those at a Mongkok-based budget hotel in Hong Kong. Varieties to try, include such signature creations as Blue Earl Grey Cake and Audrey Love Cake.
An artisanal café, Jouer can be found at Lee Garden Two in Causeway Bay and is another place that bakes heavenly creations that cake connoisseurs will love. Apart from the divine texture, the cakes come in varying flavours too, some of which are quite unique such as sticky toffee pudding, s’mores and chrysanthemum goji berry. Apart from cakes for events, it also has a “Cake For One” collection ideal when you want to treat yourself as well as delicious macarons worth trying too.
Featuring outlets in various locations including the Landmark shopping centre, The Cakery is a place for those who desire guilt-free cake eating without sacrificing the yummy factor! You can look forward to options for cakes and cupcakes that are not only organic and sugar-free but vegan-friendly and gluten-free too. There’s plenty to choose from like the Black Sesame Cotton Cake and Blueberry Keto Cheesecake; you also get Magic Hour, an apple crumble sponge cake with biscoff jam that’s perfect for vegans.
