Holland’s New Dessert Queen Esther Tabak: Cake Artist

On my recent trip to the Netherlands, I had the pleasure of meeting Esther Tabak, a passionate baker and cake artist. More recently, she fulfilled her dream of opening her own cake shop in the heart of Amsterdam. With the grand opening of Gebak van Tabak Wedding Cakes on June 10th, 2023, Esther brings her handmade, unique, and high-quality cakes to the local community.

Located at Schollenbrugstraat 32, 1091 GB Amsterdam, Gebak van Tabak offers an array of delightful confections, ranging from traditional wedding cakes to a selection of sweets such as cupcakes, tartelettes, madeleines, and more. Esther’s creations are known for their exquisite taste, artistic designs, and attention to detail. Her cakes have become a popular choice for various occasions, including weddings, where they often grace the dessert tables and add a touch of elegance to the celebrations.

The opening of Gebak van Tabak holds special significance for the local community. Esther understands the importance of having a local spot to indulge in a cup of coffee or treat oneself to a delicious slice of cake. Her cake shop provides a cozy and inviting atmosphere where people can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, even if just for a moment, and enjoy the simple pleasure of savoring a delectable treat.

Moreover, Gebak van Tabak’s presence in the community brings particular joy to couples planning their weddings. Esther takes pride in assisting soon-to-be-married couples with personalized wedding tastings and helping them prepare for their special day. With her expertise and creativity, she creates stunning wedding cakes that not only taste heavenly but also become the centerpiece of joyous celebrations.

While Esther primarily serves the local community, she also extends her services beyond Amsterdam. Wedding cakes are delivered within a maximum one-hour drive radius, ensuring that couples in nearby areas can also experience the culinary delights that Gebak van Tabak has to offer. Furthermore, Amsterdam itself is home to many breathtaking wedding venues, making it an ideal location for couples to tie the knot while enjoying Esther’s exceptional cake creations.

With her shop now open, Esther Tabak is excited to welcome the neighborhood and share her passion for cake-making with the community. Gebak van Tabak serves as a haven for cake enthusiasts, a place where people can find delightful treats to celebrate special occasions, or simply satisfy their sugar cravings. As Esther continues to bake her way into the hearts of locals and visitors alike, her cake shop promises to become a cherished part of Amsterdam’s culinary landscape.
