Over the past one-year, many F&B outlets in the city have started concentrating on cupcakes, donuts and many other English and French desserts. We know one thing for sure – the cupcake and dessert trend is here to stay in Ahmedabad.
If you too are looking for a new place to try some desserts, Cocoa Drama is the place you should visit. Cocoa Drama is a cute little place selling a variety of baked goodies. It is situated opposite Advait Complex, near Sandesh Press, Vastrapur in Ahmedabad and the well designed store sign that reads “Cocoa Drama” will tempt you every time you every time you drive down that road.
Since Cocoa Drama is one of the best places for sweet treats in the city, The Ahmedabad Blog decided to interview its owner and creator – Khushali Solanki to know more about this sweet venture!
The Ahmedabad Blog: How did the idea of Cocoa Drama come up? What is the significance of the name?
Khushali Solanki: Cocoa is the main ingredient in our products- brownies, some of the cupcakes, chocolates. When we say ‘drama’, we mean Drama for your sweet tooth using this key ingredient cocoa. Hence, Cocoa Drama was launched on 18th February 2013 in Ahmedabad.
The Ahmedabad Blog: What type of food experience did you want Amdavadis to experience? What makes your store unique?
Khushali Solanki: Since our aim was to give quality as well as variety to all, we felt that Ahmedabad lacks the authenticity as well as the home baked touch in another dessert place. We wanted to give this special taste in our products. We use imported fruit purées, French vanilla, Belgium chocolate and many such ingredients in our products. Also we make all our products daily and want them to be consumed within a day. We do not use any kind of premixes or preservatives to increase the shelf life. Each of our products is made using fresh ingredients.
The Ahmedabad Blog: What are your specialty products?
Khushali Solanki: We limited our products to cupcakes, donuts, chocolates and brownies. To name a few special and most liked flavors – chocolate blackout cupcake, carrot cream cheese cupcake. Our doughnuts are fully glazed and we have flavors like Belgium chocolate, blueberry glazed, triple chocolate, cream cheese topped.
The Ahmedabad Blog: What are the challenges you faced? How has your journey been so far?
Khushali Solanki: Initially we did face some challenges. It was only after some time that they found us unique and even better than the others.
The Ahmedabad Blog: One reason why every Amdavadi should visit Cocoa Drama
Khushali Solanki: We are very passionate in baking our products and want every Amdavadi to get a different experience in terms of taste and variety.
