This takeaway stand in Pasarbella whips up an array of Russian-style cakes that are moist, rich and sweet, but thankfully don't cross over into the cloying territory. The selections change daily and are updated on Facebook regularly but what you must get from here is the long stay, signature Pomegranate Cake ($52 per kg/$12 per slice). It's an original creation that features a generous spread of light fresh cream with a crazy amount of crimson red pomegranate seeds covering the cake — a perfect foil for the equally striking red hibiscus and pomegranate infused cake layers hidden below. The impressive height and bright red appearance of the cake already make for great conversation starters at your party, but it's the amazingly light combination of cake and fresh cream and the sheer amount of pomegranate seeds that makes this cake great for people who love pomegranate!
*Whole cakes have to be ordered two days in advance
