“Okay and we will bring dessert.” We have all made that declaration in response to an invitation to the home or party of a friend or relative. The act of bringing a special dessert as a statement of thanks or appreciation for an invitation is a given feel good response. That is until it comes time to making a decision about a special dessert that will be enjoyed by the hosts as well as all of the guests who will be present. The pressure begins and standard questions quickly follow. Which bakery? Chocolates or cake?
Choosing a special dessert for any occasion can be a pressure free fun event and doesn’t even necessitate a trip in the car or visits to local bakeries or shops. It is possible to enjoy the experience of online shopping as you surf the different specialty shops which cater to cakes, pastries and handmade chocolates. Israeli food shops offering special desserts and cakes may be found on different sites and portals like U-Boutique.
Talented Israeli food and pastry designers working from home or a small shop, delight in pleasing their customers and displaying their creations. On a recent online shopping trip I was able to view a startling variety of cakes with special frostings and designs. These designers can personalize your special dessert order with trimming containing photo type images, messages, or sculpted figures made from sugar or marzipan. It is also possible to incorporate a choice of flavors, colors, and shapes in addition to the decorations.
Special cookies and handmade chocolate are also available as dessert options. The food designers who market their creations online offer personalized service and will assist you in making the ideal decision for your dessert selection. I found myself choosing an assortment of designer cookies from one food designer and a dessert cake from another online shop. It was hard to say no to a side order of chocolates. I decided to save the chocolate selection for a holiday gift for friends in Jerusalem. In the end I chose to have my orders delivered to my home on the day of the dinner party we were invited to in order to ensure freshness.
It seems there is a growing demand for online food services and it is not unusual for families overseas to order and send specially designed cakes and food gifts from online Israeli sites to friends and relatives living in Israel. The sites I visited seem to cater to any occasion or festive events and some of the wedding cakes look magnificent. The costs of these specialized items are competitive with local street shops I have visited. In the end it is certain that these talented Israeli artists and their inviting creations leave you with a great deal of food for thought.
