We all know how difficult it is to find a good bakery in town these days (Pun intended). Having said that, there are a lot of good bakery around and some bad ones too so in the end it is really confusing which one to walk into.
In the same line, we came across The Cake Story in Sector 50, Gurgaon. They too are on Zomato and you can see some pretty convincing images of their cakes and pastries on the website.
Our benchmark for testing any bakery is a Red Velvet Pastry, because this is where most people go wrong. So we tried theirs and it was amazing. That in itself should be pretty self-explanatory but to understand there is this right balance of sweet and thickness cream cheese topping. Bread has that fresh smell and authentic red velvet taste to it.
Next up was a Rum cake which is usually good but there are some mess-ups. Their rum cake for one was fresh, really soft, spongy and full of resin and nuts which added to the taste. It was slightly less than medium sweet but that kind of worked and boy did it smell good. One bite and you would surely be craving for more. Rather, chances are you will end up eating much more than you intended to.
We also laid our hands upon their chocolate chip cookie which was crispy, loaded with chocolate chips and again good.
Pineapple pastry was pretty ordinary, that stands tall at being prepared well and ticking all the right boxes. But having tasted their red velvet and rum cake, may be our expectation were soaring high and we were hoping for some magic to happen.
Everything that we bought was very hygienically and neatly packed and tasted either average or good. Nothing was below standard. So, this place is highly recommended by us.
