There is an abundance of cake in Berlin, but we have yet to see any quite as beautiful as those made by Stephanie, owner of CakesBerlin. Born in Israel, Stephanie studied fine art and worked as a set designer before moving to Berlin. After receiving more and more requests from friends to bake for their birthdays, she decided, on a whim, to set up a Facebook page. Three years later and a fleeting idea is now a full-fledged company where she bakes cakes fresh to order from her kitchen in Kreuzberg for an impressive list of clients and individuals in the city. Although she has a natural gift for baking, her artistic eye is what makes these cakes so unique. Each one is a work of art that she creates with incredible patience, meticulously painting, placing and perfecting every last decorative detail. All her creations are based on a light, buttery sponge cake with a melt-in-your-mouth fresh cream filling. Customers can choose from a range of flavors, such as “Old School Vanilla” and “Vanilla with Salted Caramel and Chocolate Cream,” as well as customize the color scheme and design. Next time you need a bespoke cake for any occasion (make one up if necessary), you know whom to call. (Text: Lucy Thorpe)
