WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT THESE GUYS ARE CLOSED
By Hannah Augur
Whether you’re a dude hunting for an awesome date idea, or a pack of girls searching for somewhere to spend the afternoon, cake cafes are not only fun, but delicious. On the sidewalk outside stands a sign detailing all of their sugary, and fresh options. Ranging from $5 cupcakes to $20 heart-shaped chocolate cakes, everything is cute, tasty and reasonably priced.
Inside, the café is a bright and open room nearly wall-to-wall with different sprinkles, garnishes and frostings, and tables decorated only with rotating cake stands. When you sit down, they will actually hand you a menu—that’s how many kinds of cakes and icings there are. You can point and grunt your way through the cake and icing-choosing process; after a few minutes, the staff will bring you a gorgeous blank-slate cake (or cupcakes!). The icing is surprisingly smooth and fluffy, making it even harder to not stick your hand directly in it. After that, you can work your artistic magic at your own pace. There are small 500\ packets of sprinkles, multiple kinds of edible flowers, a variety of random toppings (mini-Pepero, cookie crumbles, frosting puppies, edible flowers), and a refrigerated area for specifically for fruity toppings and sauces.
Surprisingly, even if you are watching your wallet, this is not a big money waster. After everything, it will likely come to around $25 for both the cake and experience.
Haeundae Station on the green line take exit 1. Walk to the top of the stairs and straight. Take your first right. Immediately after the Angel-in-us is a Mr. Pizza. Next to the Mr. Pizza entrance take the stairs up to the third floor, and you’ll be at the café’s doors.
