His passion for pleasing the sweet tooth pulled Kuruvilla George into the world of baking. The ‘Buttercup Cakery’, his standalone shop, offers rich, creamy cupcakes, gourmet speciality cakes and an assortment of rich buttery cookies.

Kuruvilla, who used to work with a hotel in the City earlier, loved baking from childhood. “That’s how the eatery came into being. We started this venture about three years back and are going steady. We have to our credit lots of flavours in cupcakes with special centre-filled ones too,” he says.  The cupcakes include ‘carrot raisin with cream cheese frosting’, ‘red velvet with cream cheese frosting’, ‘chocolate with chocolate ganache’, ‘banana with chocolate sour cream frosting’, ‘sticky toffee cupcakes with toffee glaze’ and ‘ginger with whipped cream’.

“There are filled cupcakes like ‘vanilla with lemon curd filling and whipped cream frosting’, ‘chocolate with salted caramel filling and dark chocolate frosting’ and ‘vanilla with passion fruit curd filling and whipped cream frosting’,” says Kuruvilla. There are also cakes like the ‘carrot cake’, ‘chocolate cake’, ‘sticky toffee cake’, ‘rich plum cake’ and ‘cheesecakes’ along with elaborate fondant cakes and buttercream ones.

    “We also have something special called a ‘bundt cake’, (which are cakes with a hole in the centre) that are richer in content. Flavours available are ‘blackcurrant and lemon with white chocolate icing’ and ‘lemon ginger bundt cake with chocolate icing,” he says. Cookies like ‘French Madeleine’, ‘peanut cookies’, ‘chocolate cookies’ and ‘rum raisin cookies’ are also available. 

   “We see a mixed crowd, with people of all ages and from all regions,” says Kuruvilla.      He says that the focus is on cupcakes, because it was in trend when he was planning to open the shop. 

“We now plan to introduce chocolates also soon,” he says.     This ‘cakery’ is located at No 13, Near Axis Bank ATM, Geddalahalli, Hennur Main Road. For details, call 9538258534.
