Want a photo of yours or your loved ones on a cake? Check out these places for a fabulous deal...

The Cake Express
This place specializes in cakes that are as big as 10 to 12kgs.

“We make wedding and anniversary cakes where the customer wants either their picture or a collage of pictures on the cake,” says Anurag Mishra of Cake Express. Besides this, they are also doing photo cup cakes. But a unique thing to check out here are photo cookies, available in flavours such as chocolate, almond, pista and wheat. You can order your cake on phone and it will be delivered at your place with some extra charges depending on the distance travelled.

Starting price: Rs 500 for half Kg

Bagels and Brownies
When you’re here, expect a whole lot of photo cakes in flavours such as black forest, mango, blueberry, vanilla and many more. The photos, as per your requirement, are carried on the cake by placing an edible sheet that is made from corn starch and sugar. It is then coloured with edible colours. They also customize your cake in terms of calories- less sugar, sugar-free and even eggless for all vegetarians. The shop takes orders 24/7 and is open all seven days of the week. You don’t have to personally visit the shop to order your cake. Just give them a call and mail your pics, and they will deliver the cake in five hours.

The Chocolate Box
The photo cakes here are made in various sizes and shapes depending on the customer’s requirements. Any flavour, like pineapple or strawberry, can be made into a photo cake. Explaining the concept, Chef Rajesh Variyath says, “It’s a simple procedure, where edible sheets (with your pic) in sugar and cocoa butter can cover a cake as its final topping, instead of regular icing or decoration.” These sheets and the ink used are natural and edible. Also, if you want better results, make sure that you are carrying a high resolution picture along with you. They also make cakes with cartoon characters, as such cakes are quite in demand.

Another speciality at this place is photo cup cakes. A box with nine such pieces would cost you Rs1000 and every cup cake can have a different picture on it. Other things to check out here are photo lollipops and photo balloons. They have recently opened another branch in DLF Promenade’s food court.
