Imagine edible chess pieces and chocolate giraffes, a pirate ship adrift on a sea of icing, the cover of your favorite book reproduced in sugar, a full-sized delectable violin, or a candied Hummer – anything is possible in the Temptations kitchen.
For Temptations owner Rachel Miskin, the greater the challenge, the more outlandish the request, the better. Every cake produced by Temptations is moist and scrumptious, with that special homemade quality. And while great care is devoted to making each cake utterly delicious, the real fun lies in creating a personalized and original design for every customer. Whether you’re celebrating the bar mitzvah of a
a little girl’s seventh birthday,
or a wedding,
meticulous care is taken to make your cake reflect the personality and individuality of the recipients. A Temptations cake as your centerpiece takes an event to the next level and will bring a smile to everyone’s faces.
“I started my life in Israel as a journalist,” says Rachel, “and I derived great satisfaction from bringing little-known stories to light and getting the facts exactly right. But there’s nothing like the thrill of creating a cake that brings people joy and allows you to take even a small part in their simcha.”
Whether you live in Jerusalem or you’re far away and looking for a way to contribute to any happy event, a made-to-order cake is always the answer. Want to reach out and send your child in seminary/yeshiva a special birthday cake? You’re guaranteed to be the student body’s most popular parent. Take it from one very satisfied mother:
“Dear Rachel, A mere thank you seems inadequate but please allow me to say thank you, thank you, thank you. My daughter was beyond thrilled with her surprise birthday cake. She said it was so gorgeous that she was nervous to cut it.
And not only was it beautiful on the outside but she said it’s the best cake she has ever eaten. All the girls were so impressed and said that it’s the nicest cake by far that any parent has ever sent. I think it’s the talk of the school. I am so glad that I found out about you and I look forward to recommending you highly to others. You have been an absolute doll to deal with!”
