Last week while walking through Yau Ma Tei, I discovered I Love Cake, a new shop that’s sort of like a mad scientist’s laboratory for baking!
Located in the middle of Shanghai Street’s restaurant supply area, it’s filled with interesting cake-making tools, accessories, and embellishments.
Browsing the shelves you can spot cake-molds of all shapes and sizes. A good part of one wall is filled with patterned cookie cutters and a large selection of edible toppings.
For those of you into making your own cupcakes, the place features dozens of different cupcake wrappers to choose from. Refrigerators in the back stock additional ingredients such as fresh cream and butter to get everything you need all in one shop. (Don’t even get me started! Usually cooking something in Hong Kong requires trips to three different grocery stores!)
The selection at I Love Cake is enticing to the point where it makes you want to bake something. In case you have the enthusiasm, but not the skills, I Love Cake has created videos that explain different recipes (in Cantonese.)
If you’re up for trying to make a birthday cake for a friend, this seems like the ideal place to visit!
