The Halal Scoop: Cupcakes with Cakesbykz

Those who eat together, stay together. That’s what I believe anyway. I don’t think ShakerFries and I would even have a relationship if it wasn’t for food! That’s why when I met Kuresh and Zemila, two home bakers, I had to try their cakes! I had never heard of a couple who baked together..and I loved the concept. Zemila was kind enough to prepare me some vanilla and chocolate sponge cupcakes with fresh buttercream icing, and Kuresh delivered them fresh to my house. The sponge was ridiculously soft and moist, and I had to fight ShakerFries for them, as although there were 6, he was determined to finish them all himself! It was a pleasure to liaise with these guys, and I would highly recommend trying their cakes for a special occasion.
