Looking for Special Gifts? "Micake Cake Decorating Studio"

If you’re looking for something special to give someone as a gift for a holiday or birthday, the only thing better than a handmade gift might be dessert! At Micake Cake Decorating Studio, you can have the best of both worlds. Micake is one of a few shops in Daegu where you can decorate your own cake or cupcake. 

The first step is to choose whether you want to decorate a cake or several cupcakes. Micake has traditional circular, dome-shaped, and heart-shaped cakes in various sizes and flavors. They range in price from 14,000 to 23,000 won just for the cake itself. The most expensive cake is really nine pieces of cake in different flavors arranged together. Some cakes also have filling, and you can even decorate a cheese cake. At Micake, you also have the option of decorating the top of a cheese tart. Micake has four flavors of cupcake to choose from: green tea, strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. You can choose 2, 4, 6, or 9 cupcakes to decorate, and they don’t have to be the same flavor. Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes are 2,000 won each and strawberry and green tea cupcakes are 2,500 won each. 

The next decision you have to make after choosing your cake or cupcake is what color and flavor of frosting you want to use. Cakes already come with some frosting on then, but you get to choose two or three extra frosting flavors to use as decoration. You can choose white vanilla, green mint, brown chocolate, purple grape, yellow banana, or pink strawberry frosting. What’s even better is that you can also choose what tip you want on the end of each frosting piping bag. For this unfamiliar, a piping bag is the bag you squeeze all the frosting out of to decorate a cake. The metal tip of the bag comes in variety of shapes, and the frosting will take the shape of the piping bag tip when you add it to your cake. The menu has pictures that show what the frosting will look like when it is squeezed out of the piping bag to help you make your decision. The allows you to be more creative with your final cake and cupcake designs. 

Micake is quite a large shop with plenty of seating for customers and decorating space. Each table comes with a circular rotating block at the center so that you can make sure your cakes are beautifully decorated all over. The shop is also very clean, and customers are encouraged to wash their hands prior to decorating. Grab a pair of tweezers and a plate from the sterilization case and choose whatever decorations you would like for your cupcakes.

Micake boasts a wide range of decorations, including those made of sugar and chocolate. There are decorations for practically any occasion. Chocolate decorations can be found inside a large cooler along with several types of fruit, which you can also use for your cake or cupcakes. For cakes, they even have several stencil designs; put the stencil on the cake and dust cocoa powder over it to imprint the words onto your cake then just carefully remove the stencil. If you need inspiration or assistance, the bakers at Micake are more than willing to give you a few pointers, or you can look at the many photo idea books at the shop. 

You could have a whole birthday party at this cake studio because they even stock party hats, birthday sunglasses, and candles. For a unique and delicious treat, head over to Micake Cake Deocorating Studio where you can decorate a cake or cupcakes especially for that special someone.

Try food for all over Asia : Panasia

You could argue that Daegu is lacking in the foreign food department, but there is one restaurant downtown that is attempting to change all that. Panasia is a restaurant that serves delicious cuisine from a variety of Asian countries, including Thailand, China, Indonesia, and Singapore.

If you’ve spent any amount of time in Korea, you will know that Korea has its own kind of Chinese food. American Chinese food is something you can hardly ever find, but it is on the menu at Panasia. Get a taste of the Chinese food you’re used to with Panasia’s cashew chicken or general tso’s chicken. Entrees are typically between 10,000 and 20,000 won, but portions are very generous, so you’ll probably want to share.
Thai food is also very uncommon in Daegu, but Panasia does it really well. The pad thai is tasty and satisfying. Panasia even have sweet and refreshing Thai ice tea served in a metal bucket and meant for sharing. There are a few flavors of mojitos that are served the same way and are even hand-mixed at your table. The large drinks cost about 8,000 won. Panasia also has a good selection of Asian beers, such as Chang, for around 5,000 won a bottle.
Other popular dishes include curry and Singaporean chili crab for entrees and spring rolls and steamed buns as appetizers.
The restaurant is conveniently located on bar street right near Thursday Party.  Go out of Jungangno Station exit 2 on the red line and take a left towards 2.28 Memorial Park. Walk straight as far as you can, and when you get to the park, make a right. Continue walking along the side of the park. Take your second left to get to bar street.  Walk straight for a few minutes, and Panasia will be on your right on the second floor.
Panasia is a great asset to Daegu, giving guests the chance to try food for all over Asia.
