You read that right, ‘tis the season! As we reach the last leg of the year-end festivities, it’s time to indulge in the best Christmas cakes in Delhi. Here’s your list of the top places to get your hands on these.
Her specialty is French entremets, which taste just as amazing as they look. With the Miam Café, Chef Bani Nanda has also started doing savoury treats—look out for her Sunday brunch this weekend. Her constant experiments in the kitchen mean we’re looking forward to something new this year round, but also hope for the Bûche de Nöel to make a re-appearance. Must-try is a yulelog made with layers of strawberries, vanilla mousse, custard, and orange crumble. She’s also done a Christmas Pain au Chocolat with rum, cinnamon, orange peel, almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans – a nut-lover’s delight.
Looking for quality chocolate treats? Look no further. You can try one of Chef Radhika’s gift boxes: assorted chocolates filled with Dark Chocolate and Mulled Wine Truffles, Walnut Caramel Spice Bonbons, a pair of Chip and Dale (bars with a blend of milk and dark chocolate), jar each of Butterscotch pearls and chocolate-coated almonds—add the mini copper mugs for that festive vibe. You can also go for the other one, including French truffles – a 72 percent Dark Single Origin Venezuela Mosaic Bar, two mini Chip and Dale Bars, two stars, each filled with marshmallows and chocolate-coated almonds, and a pair of Swedish Chokladballs. If in the mood for cake, get their Drunken Christmas Cakes Carrot Spice Cake.
True to its name, this one has the city smitten with its bakes. Chef Mandakini brings out some of the top treats year-round, though much less publicised and more made to order. Try their Spiced Carrot Cake and chocolate-coated marshmallows, which are bite-sized goodness you can’t get enough of.
For homemade goodness, place an order with The Sinful Spoon. Chef Sanchita is known for her mini-macaron decorated cakes. For Christmas, she’s whipped an Orange and Almond Tea Cake. Lush flavours that satiate all your dessert wishes.
The OG of the capital’s fine desserts, L’Opera does a whole range for its Christmas menu. Try the yule log cakes and the Italian sweetbread, panettone. They also do various cookies such as the gingerbread man, Christmas crunch, hazelnut crunch, and chocodip shortbread.
For some of the cutest Christmas bakes, Bombaykery is your go-to choice. Their Reindeer macarons had both adults and children hooked. From cheesecakes and frosted cakes to savoury and sweet jars, they’re known for decadent tastes that fit the theme of indulgence perfectly.
