Cake Boss also gave the region a window into the high-energy and, as it turned out, highly entertaining art of ostentatious cake decoration.We would go to school and in the afternoon and in the morning before we would make chocolates," Kawtharani said as he led The Daily Star through a tour of his confectionary complex.These days, the crazy fondant cakes are his personal focus. Mother's Day is also huge, with the shop typically logging sales in the thousands of cakes.Cremino's store space is three floors high, with pastries, breads and ice cream on the first floor, a massive display of chocolates in colorful tin foil on the second and a third dedicated to glassware and gift items. The real work, however, happens on the two floors underground, and as we descended the stairs, wafts of melting chocolate and cake batter greeted us before we could see the industrial kitchens. The new shop will bring in cakes from the headquarters on the Old Airport Road, as well as take specialty orders and cake reservations for those who prefer the relative safety of Ras Beirut.Many of the cakes that come out of this small side room infuse a very local flair into the cake art fad.On a typical Saturday, Cremino's cake decorators will fill about 40 orders for specialty cakes.
