Caryna Camerino

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Caryna Camerino is the wittiest cake baker in Ireland. She's a hoot. Her blog is a hoot. She is really funny. She takes pictures of the people who take pictures of her cakes and posts them on her social media pages. Read an interview with her and you will marvel at how she fires off one liners like Groucho Marx.
She was once asked, “Is there a cake that sums up the holiday season for you?” and, quick as a flash, she replied “Peppermint candy cane chocolate cheesecake. Is that a thing? I'll make it a thing”.
Wow! And she did. Of course she did. She made it a thing.
The fact that she bakes in Ireland, and that you can get her cakes throughout Dublin, is a cause for celebration, but not one we should take lightly. Ms Camerino is originally from Canada and came to Ireland whilst back-packing a decade ago. A planned two day excursion somehow morphed into living in Dublin and working at a h.r job she came to detest, so she baked to cheer herself up, and the baking quickly became her life, and Caryna's Cakes quickly took the place of the h.r. job.
Now, she is a mainstay of the Dublin market scene, supplies shops and cafés with her delectable cakes and bakes, and enriches the life of the nation, or at least the Dublin bit of it. People talk about her white chocolate raspberry brownies, or her Irish coffee cakes with Teeling whiskey and mascarpone cream, with a reverence that suggests they have discovered the elixir of life. Which, frankly, they have, for Ms Camerino offers baking in the great North American tradition  – unrestrained, wildly imaginative, bounteous, dedicated to lushness and pleasure. Buy one of her cannoli car snacks and you will want to sell the car just to have the money to buy more cannoli car snacks.
The sweet things are enrapturing, but so are the savoury treats. And recently she has started classes in her Terenure headquarters, so you can enjoy not just her wit, but also her baking wisdom, and a slice of peppermint candy cane chocolate cheesecake.
