We thought the name of this cool, home run dessert and cake shop in Bengaluru's HRBR Layout was enough to get us "sniffing and prodding" but clearly The Culinary Cat had more to offer. Cat mama, talented baker and owner Shifa Sheriff creates edible art. Period. Exquisite, knockout and too-good-to-eat -- all come to mind, together with the strongest urge to jump straight to ordering everything we lay our eyes on. Oh and the longer you stare at each creation, the more you know that the devil is in the details at this cake shop.
The menu is as glorious as the sights of The Culinary Cat's cakes and is super extensive. Cake is the star here and so you will find that TCC has a classic range - Vanilla Chiffon, Lemon Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Blueberry Vanilla (INR 600 to INR 950 per kg) and a premium range - Peaches and Cream, Salted Caramel, Carrot With Cinnamon Cream Cheese, Death By Chocolate (INR 1,000 to INR 1,800 per kilo). Customised orders are more than welcome and is what TCC does best. We must specially mention the OTT cakes with designs that blow your mind and the Pull Me Up Cakes -- yes the one where the frosting explodes like lava! Yum.
If you're a little non-committal and a big cake is too much, turn to the cupcakes collection. Just as delightful and similarly divided into a classic, premium and a fun make your own range (mix the cake and the frosting flavours), these are priced between INR 55 to INR 80 each.
