It’s only the beginning of the year, and birthdays, anniversaries, weddings; they’re all already here! While we love the celebrations, if we’re being honest, what we love about them the most are the cakes and pastries and that these occasions bring along.
Cake It Up
While Mumbai’s restaurants and bakeries both offer a wide variety of cakes, we decided to zero in on some of the best cake shops in Mumbai; so you can head directly to these stores when you are already running around for finding a great gift for your loved ones. Just refer to our list of best cake shops in Mumbai, and you’ll be sorted with the cake planning.
Since its opening in 2004, Theobroma has taken over a large pie of the cake market with its indulgent offerings —macaroons, tarts, mousse cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cheesecakes, brownies; they have all things indulgent. Not just that, their range of artisanal breads, which include Multigrain, Whole-wheat, Garlic, Masala, Ciabatta, Focaccia, Brioche, High Fiber and Parsi Chutney Bread, are done quite exquisitely; they make you crave for more.

2) The Boston Cupcakery
With over 30 different flavors on offer, The Boston Cupcakery’s partiality towards cupcakes in their menu is apparent; but there are some really good shakes on offer too.

If there is a special occasion coming up, tell them in advance, you can get your cakes customized too.

3) Love & Cheesecake
A dessert parlor that focuses mainly on cheesecakes, Love & Cheesecake has more than 30 different varieties of it. In addition, they have chocolate cakes, tarts, brûlées, brownies and confectionary breads too. While you can get a quick slice of cake at the parlor, if you want to cherish the cheesecake-y goodness for a little longer, get their sinful full one-kilogram pack. They also have special variations of their cakes for birthdays and anniversaries — you can get a photo of your loved ones printed right on your cake.

Also, don’t worry if you are far away from their outlet, they deliver throughout Mumbai.
5) Melting Morsels
A small patisserie, Melting Morsels has a seating arrangement for only 5-6 people; but that doesn’t deter the loyalists who swear by its creamy cakes. The menu has a mix of pastries, cupcakes, tarts, cookies, macaroons and a few other sweet offerings. But that’s not all; if you’re craving for a quick snack, try their sandwiches, wraps and other savory treats. And if you’re stuck because you forgot a friend’s birthday, don’t worry; give them a few hours of time and they’ll make sure have a basic customized cake is ready for you.
