Normally when MIX does an article on shopping it’s about clothes, bikinis, sunglasses etc. but who says you can’t do a shopping article about cake? After all, we have to accept (albeit sometimes secretly) cake makes us feel good, just as a new bikini, dress or sunglasses does.
So, yes I admit I went shopping for cake at Tseppas in Genena Mall – the new in-trend place for such delicacies and oh what fun I had. Tseppas may be new to Sharm, but it is a well-established highly regarded manufacturer in Egypt since 1912, with eight branches nationwide. The café and bakery are huge and they also have the same area downstairs for their factory – as all of their goods a baked fresh daily.
Breakfast: order a selection of fresh pastries, croissants and mini pizzas.
Oriental delights: Tseppas are renowned for their oriental sweets. There is a huge selection of delicate pastries with pistachios, nuts and cream all drenched in sugar syrup. These little sweet bites are perfect served with a Turkish coffee for after dinner.
Cocktail canapés: enjoy afternoon tea at Tseppas with a selection of smoked salmon, prawn and sausage canapés and some mini slider rolls filled with roast beef and cheese. These can also be ordered as outside catering for your home soiree. (48hrs notice is requested).
Petit Fours and mini cakes: For a really decadent afternoon tea add a selection of petit fours and mini cakes. They are all bite sized pieces of pure joy. Shortbreads, chocolate tarts, marzipan fruits and many more varieties.
Celebration cakes: If you have a celebration and you need a cake then choose a torte from Tseppas. They have many freshly prepared cakes available to go. Choose from blueberry cheese cake, chocolate torte, fruit embezzled cakes and more. Also cakes of any size can be ordered for any occasion with only 24hrs notice.
Fancy European cake slices: There are so many to choose from and they all look delicious. I tried the walnut caramel slice, chocolate biscuit, and chocolate pistachio with my friends (of course).
Breads and toasts: There is a big selection of pretzels and dried toasts which are perfect for making home-made canapés and a selection of breads.
Sweets and ice cream: If the cakes, tortes, petit fours and oriental sweets don’t suit your craving there are 16 flavours of home-made ice-cream, colourful macaroons and home-made chocolates which make a nice birthday gift.
Tseppas will also be serving special Ramadan sweets throughout the holy month including konafa with mango, konafa with pineapple and the traditional Rawani cake.
