Ginny’s Confectionary and Restaurant has opened its second Dubai outlet, with a live baking centre as its new focus. The outlet first opened in May 1989, specialising in cakes, pastries and sizzlers. With chef Lawrence Gonsalves on board, the outlet then went on to offer a wide range of Chinese cuisine, as well as an extensive range of snacks, such as mini-pizzas and its cake album. Located in the Karama district of Bur Dubai, the new outlet specialises in confectionery and catering for celebrations and events, with plans to supply custom-made cakes to companies and hotels. “Ginny’s was a dream which my father turned into a reality. Originally from Kuwait, he visited Dubai and sensed the potential in this kind of business,” commented Ginny Sahni, manager, Ginny’s. Designed in a modern style, the interior features a baking centre, offering freshly made cakes in any design, cartoon character or shape requested. However, Sahni hopes to expand the company’s outdoor catering service, as well as supplying corporate gifts such as confectionery hampers, with its free delivery service. Due to the demand for healthier alternatives, Ginny’s also offers cakes with toppings such as mixed fruits and mango mousse, as well as desserts for people with special dietary requirements, for example cakes made without eggs, and a selection of vegetarian dishes. “We have an amazing rapport with our clients and customers after 17 years in the business, and we hope to expand our operations, with plans to break into the hospitality industry, increasing our network to cover the region’s hotels,” Sahni said.
