BakeMyCake now open in Dundrum

BakeMyCake, near Luas BalallyThe second BakeMyCake shop has opened its doors in Dundrum.

The spacious store, located at the side of the Dundrum Town Centre complex on the walk in from Balally Luas stop, is run by creative cakemaker Catherine De Groot.

She told OnTheLine:’We had a fair amount of people coming in for our first day on Tuesday.We had everybody from kids and teenagers  to people looking for wedding cakes.’

BakeMyCake has built a great reputation for creating striking novelty cakes for special occasions since it opened its first store in Booterstown just over three years ago.

Some of the loyal customers from Booterstown also made the trip to Dundrum to see Catherine’s new store which has much more space to feature BakeMyCake favorites including novelty and wedding cakes, signature fun filled cupcakes and treats.

‘We are also offering takeaway coffee and milkshakes,’ says Catherine, who said the first day was busier than expected despite the snow and the rain. ‘We heard some people inside the centre were looking for us. More people will know where we are at the weekend when they queue outside to get into the car parks.’

A fully qualified architect who found herself with a little more time on her hands as the recession began to bite hard, Catherine turned her passion for pastry into a business back in 2009.

Since then, she has delighted hundreds of customers, including celebrities and media personalities, by creating once-off cakes.

“It’s so nice to be able to help celebrate someone’s special occasion by making their favourite handbag, jersey or even their dog,” she says. “ We love the challenge of creating something we haven’t done before.”
