A small garage cafe tucked in the green residential part of Kammanahalli, Cake Away is an ideal place for a quick dessert.

As the name suggests, the place is more of a takeaway but offers a nice ambience for one to sit in too. Started purely out of passion by Mohammed Sameer Hussain in his garage, Cake Away has many takers in and around the area. Sameer always knew what his passion was. “I have never worked anywhere else. I always had a passion to bake. So I decided to start this place in my garage,” reveals the 23-year-old.

An array of mouth-watering pastries and cupcakes await one at the place. Be it the red velvet cupcake or banoffee pie, most of the items are personally baked by Sameer himself with the help of his two cooks and sold out by the evening. “I prefer to directly interact with the customers,” he says. And Sameer keeps experimenting on a regular basis to come up with new sumptuous desserts. “On Fridays, we generally add something unique to the menu as we have a large crowd coming in during the weekends. If something clicks with the crowd, we add it to the menu. Mango mirror chocolate cake was one such cake that we introduced,” he explains.

The hazelnut creme chocolate cake and the strawberry cheesecake are highly popular too. The USP of the cakes here is that everything is eggless. “We also offer sugarless desserts,” informs Sameer. The place also offers savouries, though not on a regular basis. “Our black, lemon and fragrant teas are really popular with the customers too. The best selling tea is the cranberry buckthorn tea.” he says. 

It’s only been three months since the place opened but it’s thronged by people of all ages. In fact anyone who eats here swears to come back. Nargis and Pouya are two Iranian students who keep coming here regularly. “Be it the banoffee pie or red velvet cupcake, we just love everything available here. Even the cheesecakes are really nice,” smile the two.

One can even place an order for picture cakes here. And another unique thing about Cake Away is its midnight delivery. If you want to surprise your loved ones on their birthdays or anniversaries, Sameer personally delivers the cake at midnight along with a bouquet. “I go to any part of the City. I have even gone to Whitefield and Electronic City,” he says. Beyond a radius of five kilometres, the fuel charges apply.

Cake Away is open on all days from 10 am to 10 pm. The place is located at #329, 4th Cross, 3rd Block, HRBR Layout (behind Kammanahalli Titan Eye Plus and in the Cafe Coffee Day Lane). For details, call 9663123231.
