3. Home Bakery
As the name implies, Home Bakery taps into the simple pleasure of homemade baking, along with the passion and care expected from highly trained and enthusiastic bakers. Therefore, this unique combination hits the dual notes of fine dining and homely cooking perfectly!
The success of Home Bakery can be traced back to founder Hind Al Mulla’s philosophy of combining authentic ingredients and recipes while taking inspiration from international cuisine to make unique world-class fusions.
Although Home Bakery has an array of sweet and savory dishes, along with some top-notch beverages, the highlight of their menu is undoubtedly their cake selection! With over 50 cakes to choose from, it can be daunting to rank them all; however you can see all their unique favorites here.
Fortunately, all their cakes and more are available for in-store collection and delivery.

Located in the world-famous Dubai Mall, L’ETO’s location is known for excellent service with both indoor and outdoor views of the famous Dubai fountains. Consequently, L’ETO’s location is a highlight in and of itself for lazy Sunday brunches or larger mid-week dinner events with work colleagues.
While L’ETO features an extensive menu with homemade bread, pastries, and various cheesecakes, the cake selection is a highlight of L’ETO’s menu, featuring cheesecakes, milk cakes, layered cakes, sponge cakes, mouse cakes, vegan cakes, low-calorie cakes, and gluten-free cakes.
However, a particular highlight on the cake menu would be the Eid Sweets Selection which features special, bite-sized portions to share with friends and families. The selection includes local favorites like triple chocolate cheesecake, sweet milk cake, and raspberry tarts.
Therefore, L’ETO doubles up as a cake store and laid back brunch location that caters to the dietary requirements of all its patrons.

5. Katrina Sweets & Confectionery
Starting off as a small confectionery store in 2007, Katrina Sweets & Confectionery has expanded to one of the most popular cake stores in the UAE.
The key to their success is their philosophy of adhering to ancient baking traditions and injecting them with modern techniques, quality ingredients, passion, and care.
Therefore, Katrina Sweets & Confectionery looks to capitalize on the broader “Dubai mentality and culture” of combining international innovations with tried and tested local traditions.
Their philosophy is echoed by their head chef, who states that bakers at Katrina Sweets & Confectionary are those with a passion and desire to create; that the duty of a baker is to make the dreams of clients come to life through skilled artistry.
Consequently, the main highlight/draw of Katrina Sweets & Confectionary is their ability to make world-class custom cakes, whereby their catalog at the time of writing stands at over 3000 custom cakes!
Although they do have set cakes and confectioneries on their menu, it is worth exploring their custom cakes in further detail, just to illustrate the level of talent and skill on display at Katrina Sweets & Confectionery!

6. Mister Baker
Founded in 1990 as one of the older cake stores on this list, Mister Baker is a local favorite and a go-to bakery of custom cakes for all occasions across the UAE!
The appeal of Mister Baker’s custom cakes is the ease and versatility with which you can order custom cakes. The options include an online form that allows customers to highlight their unique cake ideas in great detail or the option to have a direct consultation with one of Mister Baker’s world-class bakers!
We highly recommend a consultation if it is your first time ordering from Mister Baker and/or you are ordering a cake for a special occasion and are looking to make a great impression!

7. The Hummingbird Bakery
Despite being home to authentic American cakes and desserts, The Hummingbird Bakery originated in London in 2004 before expanding its reach via global branches in Dubai. The key to the Hummingbird Bakery’s success has been its focus on freshly baked cakes and desserts.
In support of this claim that all their baked goods are homemade and freshly baked every day, the Hummingbird Bakery has also released multiple books explaining how you can introduce their recipes into your own home.
Along with their “Monthly Specials” that keep their menu exciting and interesting, The Hummingbird Bakery maintains its focus on sweet baked goods like cakes, cupcakes, mini cupcakes, cheesecakes, tray bakes, and whoopie pies.
For those unfamiliar with whoopee pies, they can best be described as marshmallow-filled sponge sandwiches, making them a unique combination between a cookie and a cake!

While Sugarmoo has various products available, including but not limited to ice cream, pies, trifles, brownies, cookies, jars, truffles, candy bundles, and vegan desserts, I personally believe the highlight on their menu and for those looking to host events is their cake selection.
Although Sugarmoo does give customers the option of designing their own cakes, their set menu has an unmatched level of variety that’s bound to meet the needs of any/all customers.
Some menu highlights include baklava tart, kunafeh cheesecake, and their Cake Pop Smash, which is a hollow cake that can be broken open to reveal numerous smaller multicolor cupcakes! (note: the Cake Pop Smash requires a 48-hour notice for baking.)
All their cakes and products are available in-store for delivery, meaning there’s no excuse not to try out some of their products next time you’re craving a delectably sweet treat!

The main selling point of Magnolia Bakery is despite its franchise status; it remains true to its original vision statement of making all its products in-store with the finest ingredients while not relying on any premade mixes.
Although Magnolia Bakery’s food options are somewhat limited, the quality of their cakes, coupled with excellent service, mean Magnolia Bakery deserves its global appreciation and reputation.

Although they have a relatively small cake menu, they make up for it with excellent designs and the option to have a cake slice from any of their freshly made whole cakes (it is important to note that while their online menu only features three cakes, their in-store menu is seasonal with a much larger range!)
