Making an impression with a stylish and delicious wedding cake is easy when you have a great baker. We are going to introduce you to one of the finest home bakers in Chennai, Cindana Manickavel owner and head pastry chef of SUGAR MONKEYS, a dessert P.A.R.A.D.I.S.E in Chennai. She creates cakes with innovative shapes, bold fillings and intricate detailing. The infinite amounts of options are enough to put you into a sugar coma.
Like any other home baker, Cindana took up baking as a hobby and it was the typical cliché post college blues phase for her. She started experimenting with different recipes from Pinterest and in this process; she discovered a passion for baking. She also found that her baked goodies were a hit among friends and family. This is when she seriously thought about turning it into a full entrepreneurial venture and Sugar Monkeys came about. She does everything from gorgeous custom designed cakes,dessert in a jar,cake pops to cupcakes!
WHY THE NAME :
When we asked her what was her inspiration for the name “Sugar Monkeys“, she had a very interesting story to share :
“Coming up with the name sugar monkeys was a no brainer . My mother used to describe me as a monkey let loose in the kitchen when I started baking at my experimental phase . Also monkeys are my most favourite animals and I believe a person high on sugar can match their energy levels to a real monkey… lol “
WHAT SHE DOES :
Cindana started her business with desserts in a jar, which is something new to a lot of us Indians. Personally, we love this concept of having a dessert served in a jar (that’s reusable & comes with a cute spoon ) which can be consumed for 15 days from the date of manufacturing that only means these things have a longer shelf life. She started with the red velvet jar and now she has close to 10 flavours including her very own range of baked cheesecake jars.
WHAT WE RECOMMEND :
We were lucky enough to try few of her baked goodies and our favourite was the red velvet jar with cream cheese and chocolate butter cream..we can’t tell which part of this dreamy cake we love more..the red velvet, the chocolate butter cream or the cream cheese frosting (good we didn’t have to choose).
PARTY/PARTY FAVORS :
If you are looking to throw a bachelorette party, SUGAR MONKEYS is the one for you. You could display a variety of pink treats so the girls can surely have their sugar fix!! You can personalize your cakes/cupcakes according to your theme from sugar monkeys. Adding dessert favors to the party is always a great idea.
WHAT WE RECOMMEND :
We suggest you order the rainbow cake for this occasion, trust me, everyone will go absolutely bananas for this one 😉
Cupcakes are becoming more and more popular at weddings/parties and even bridal showers! Cupcake is a must for a party full of women. So when you say bridal shower, we say cupcakes and when you say cupcakes, we say SUGAR MONKEYS !! The cupcakes are to die for. She has a wide range of new flavours and we can’t get enough of it. She also bakes cookies/chocolates,doughnuts and dessert shot glasses.
WHAT WE RECOMMEND:
She always adds on a surprise element to her cupcakes and if you ever ask for the chocolate cupcake with blueberry+grape filling, it’s a guaranteed route through your taste buds to HEAVEN!
The wedding cake is at the top of the list when it comes to making a wedding picturesque. WE AGREE! but if you want your wedding to stand out and satisfy the sweet tooth of your guests, then we suggest you keep a dessert table full of cupcakes,dessert jars,cookies,home-made chocolates,doughnuts,cake pops and everything you like!! make sure the colours are bright(of course)and use this as a perfect excuse to add your favourite candy into the reception(perks of being the bride). As foodies, we know you can never have too many sweets. Your guests will love your dessert table as they get to choose their favourite dessert of the day. In fact, these tables are increasingly becoming the star of the show, showcasing a couple’s favourite treats. Since the way to one’s heart is food, let your desserts be the perfect example. Showcase your romance with treats in tiered trays and a beautiful backdrop which says “LOVE IS SWEET”.
Her talent for personalizing each cake and her culinary expertise in building flavours assure a unique, delicious highlight to your event. Her goodies are Beautiful, delicious and made with a whole lot of love. It is that extra mile she goes for her customers and the personal touch that makes us want go back to her.
