Boutique Pastry Shops

 Untitled Document Boutique pastry shops are among the rising trends in Turkey and have developed rapidly in the last decade. Many people have gone abroad for pastry-making courses and several boutique pastriy shops have opened. Now you have an almost unlimited variety when you order your cakes.

Orders, mostly made for special occasions, are prepared individually. Boutique pastry makers use their own recipes and rare and valuable ingredients. When the chef finishes the cake, the outcome is so magnificent that you don't want to spoil it by eating it. The jury of the daily Hurriyet newspaper chose the best boutique pastry shop addresses in March 2006.

Senem Betil
Ms. Betil studied banking, his father's business, and then had education in pastry-making at Cordon Bleu in Paris. She established her own shop in Kavacık in 2000. The products have attracted so much attention that she has opened branches in Bebek and Teşvikiye. The design of the cakes belongs to Ms. Betil. Six of her cakes are very popular among the customers; the favorite is her chocolate cake. All branches are open everyday.

Dolce
Dolçe was founded in Arnavutköy in 1988 but has recently moved to Kuruçeşme. The designs are made by the founder Nilgün Ertuğ. The most popular cake is the one made with white chocolate and strawberry, without using any cream. Homemade chocolate is used in this cake, which can be delivered to various parts of Istanbul and even abroad. Dolçe's brownies are as famous as the cakes.

Art Cafe
Art Café is located in Selamiçeşme, Bağdat Caddesi, where it was founded in 1996. The most important characteristic of the products is that no fat is used. There are 15 kinds of cakes. The light cakes with seasonal fruits are addictive; you cannot stop eating them. Almonds, hazelnuts and meringue (eggwhite) are used in the cakes. The Levent Branch provides home delivery to Levent and Etiler. Both branches are open every day except Sunday between 08:00 and 19:30.

Foodie
Ms. Emel Başdoğan began to sell her cakes in 1996. Foodie pastry shops can be found in Ulus and Nişantaşı. Flourless and sugarless dietary cakes, chocolate soufflé and apricot paste pie are among the most popular products. The Nişantaşı branch is open every day between 09:00 and 20:00, while the Ulus Branch is closed on Sundays.

Elif Kolankaya has been giving lessons in cooking and cake decorating since 2003. She now sells her homemade cakes at her shop in Kızıltoprak.
