6 Must Try Cake shops in Bangalore

Anyone who knows me know that I love desserts. Also over the years in Bangalore, I have somehow become the go to person for cakes among colleagues, friends and family.
So I wanted to share my top 6 favorite cake shops in Bangalore. Home bakers are excluded from this list since I am yet to be convinced by them. Also I am not that big fan of the chains like Sweet Chariot, Just bake etc. So there you go, in no particular order:
1.    Patisserie Nitash, Frazer Town
Nitash has been an absolute favorite of mine for the past few years. 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, Ferroro Rocher) , Piedmontaise, 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

2.    Truffles (Ice & Spice), Various Outlets
This is the go to place to go 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.
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.

3.    Spoonful of Sugar (Koramangala and Indira Nagar)
“Desserts is stressed spelled 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 favored 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, Banoffe Pie, Salted Caramel Cake, Exotic fruit cake
Pros: Wide array of flavors to choose from, Unique, Exceptional
Cons: Very Expensive

4.    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 their remarkable cakes, they are a great haunt for good breakfast. 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.

5.    Bengaluru Baking Company (J W Marriot, Bangalore)
A recent find but they have already ended up being on this list. 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: Fruit cake, Red Velvet Cake
Pros: Still experimenting, so hard to say
Cons: Very expensive

6.    Bite Me Cupcakes (Indira Nagar and Koramangala)
Technically they do not fall in 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 in 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.
