Country Oven is one of the oldest bakeries located at Greenlands, Ameerpet. With 30 years in business, it is all geared up for trendy, designer, and theme cakes.

Whenever there is a party or an event, the first thing that comes to mind is cake. Cakes are an important part of every celebration. No party is complete without cakes. Cake symbolizes happiness, success, and love. Cakes are the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions like New Year as they help people express their feelings clearly.

A beautiful note with their favorite-flavored cake would make the day of a loved one, near and dear. Similarly, cake design also holds a special place. Designer cakes are the center of attraction at every party. That is why a lot of people are ordering theme cakes, explains, Niharika Gourineni, Director of Country Oven.

A political worker ordered a cake to welcome President Draupadi Murmu in Hyderabad. A teacher wanted a cake with a message of world peace. A fin-tech company ordered a cake with 'Go Digital' message on it.

"Cakes are ordered with these special messages. Not only do these special messages make the occasion special, but also add photo value. The photo of the celebration also becomes share-worthy, so that they can post it on their social media handles," adds Hari Prasad.

A traffic constable wanted a cake with the socially relevant message ' 'Don't Drink and Drive" printed on the cake. Seeing him, another lady visitor to the bakery purchased a cake with a similar message to present to her husband, to tell him gently to avoid 'drunk driving'.

Looking at the trend, cakes with "Mask Up Message", "Love Hyderabad '', "Avoid Using Mobiles While Driving '', 'World Peace', 'Stop War Etc have been runaway hit.

Now the trend is for fascinating cakes with unimaginable themes and messages. So you don't feel like cutting and eating. "Everyone wants a designer cake because it just attracts everyone and makes the dessert look more presentable and enjoyable," adds a customer, Rani.

Many people demand designer cakes to surprise their loved ones. A designer cake is specially designed in a unique theme like a cricket pitch, shirt theme, uniform theme, or any kind of design that you want. "Adding a personal touch to the cakes by customizing them according to their profession makes them even more elegant and captivating. There is no limitation for their imagination," adds Hari Prasad.
