What’s a birthday party without the birthday cake! Having spent many years of sourcing birthday cakes all over SE Asia, I am happy to say Bangkok is by far one of the easiest places to find that oh so perfect sugary treat and crowd stopping birthday cake! Some of the parties my kids have attended over the years have produced movie-set worthy cakes and it seems Bangkok mummies not only spend a lot of time helping to create the perfect cake but are happy to spend the pennies to find one! From personal recommendations amongst our community here’s where to source the best custom made birthday cakes, cookies and other sweet party treats in Bangkok, that not only look amazing but taste just as good!
Run by an expat mum, Giraffe & Hippo produces gorgeous custom birthday cakes that will delight kids and adults alike! Michelle the culinary artist extraordinaire responsible for the cakes above tells us ” This is my craft. This is my passion. I grew up with a love for art and painting, this has been my outlet for creativity the past few years. I work mainly with fondant, but you will also see a variety of media, for example, hand paints and edible paper, and styles used in my cakes. Always trying out new techniques with an aim to create something new and unique. From the start of discussing ideas with clients, to baking and decorating, up to seeing happy clients when the cake is delivered, has all been very rewarding. It has always been important that I enjoy what I do, which means making sure I am completely happy with the final cake designs.”
The cakes are made with quality ingredients and their pride/signature flavor is the moist chocolate cake with ganache frosting that uses a blend of West African and French cocoa beans. Giraffe & Hippo have kindly offered BKK Kids members a chance to try one of her signature chocolate drip cakes, click here to enter our give-away, it’s sure to make Mum very popular with the kids!
In the next few months, the Giraffe and Hippo team will grow so they can take on more orders and offer more cake flavors. If you’d like to sneak a peek of them at work, their new cake studio will be opening at Chocolate Ville restaurant by January 2021.
