On designing the cakes, Pastry Chef Pablo Rodriguez Cordero at The St. Regis Doha said, “Every occasion deserves a cake, one that is beautifully designed and crafted. One that, at just the moment the cake is cut, speaks to you and your loved ones more than words can. I believe that a cake should reflect your personality and bring a little bit of you into the party. This is why we provide a unique design process that allows guests of the St. Regis Doha to customise their cake and let their imagination run wild in the process.”

Chef Pablo added: “Each cake needs time, effort and creativity to be crafted. All our cakes are devised with the finest ingredients and decorated with the utmost skill and finesse.”
