Choose from handcrafted Plum cakes and Christmas specialties from well-known patisseries in Hyderabad
With Christmas just around the corner, we recommend some of the best patisseries and home bakers in the town. After all, what is the season without a classic Plum Cake? Here’s our specially-curated list for you.
Only in Xmas
Trio-La Patisserie is known for its plum cakes. They prepare two batches of fruits and seeds — one batch from November and the other from last year’s batch. Cranberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds and orange peels are mixed with rum and stored for baking. The bakery also claims that they use homemade butter and spice mix to bake their cakes. We recommend you try these cakes as you won’t find these decadent ones during any other time of the year.
Starts at Rs. 275 onwards
Call of the classics
ITC Hotels — Kakatiya and Kohenur — have launched an exclusive range of cakes, breads and gift hampers for this Christmas season. They call their Christmas collection, Season’s Selections By ITC Hotels and their specials truly reinvent the classic festive signatures. ITC’s array of desserts include two Plum cake hamper variants — Tinsel, a classic Plum Cake and Felicity, a Nutmeg Signature Plum Cake. Topped with fruits, cherries and icing sugar, Kakatiya is the go-to if you prefer the classics.

Christmas is always special at Ofen, Banjara Hills and so are their plum cakes. They tailor it according to recipes handed down through generations.

With white cream icing and red candy sticks as decorations, these delicacies spell nothing but Xmas.

They, then, store your fruits and seeds for a month and bake a fresh cake on the day you wish to have your delivery. If you missed these workshops worry not, as you can still place an order for their rich, and fluffy Plum cakes.
