SHEI Launch Party: Cakes by Rubina

Everyone knows a party isn’t a  party without the right food.  At the SHEI magazine Launch Party, in honor of the highly anticipated  Work  issue, we had the right food. Now in the aftermath of this wildly popular event, we would like to acknowledge a special Ann Arbor business for helping to make the night a  success.  Rubina Sohail, founder of Cakes by Rubina, donated 4 dozen of her delectable cupcake creations for the event. Cakes by Rubina baked to order, so you know that whatever you get will be  fresh and made just for you!

If you haven’t heard about Cakes by Rubina as of yet, allow us to share some of our favorites from her extensive list of creations!

On the cake side of things, Cakes by Rubina offers classics like chocolate, vanilla, carrot, lemon, red velvet. But the store also boasts some of the best cheesecakes in Ann Arbor from classic New York to lemon blueberry to pumpkin. Rubina  even puts together coffee cakes and ice cream cakes.  For any occasion, even weddings, her cakes are unique and can be fit to any budget!

Ummm who wouldn't want a Lana themed cake?! You go PVK!

We all love a fashion forward cake!

Each as unique and personal as the next!

Rubina does it all:  regular cakes, sculpted cakes, or custom tiered ones for any special occasion. She even makes personalized graduation cakes for students who are graduating from the University of Michigan!

Go Blue!

What more can you ask for?!

Two words. Two words that can make anyone’s mouth salivate at command: CAKE TRUFFLES.

Cake truffles!

Much like cake pops, without the stick, cake truffles are bite size, moist and delectable! From corporate events to weddings or special events, they are perfect for a number of occasions. With flavors like brownie, strawberry, coconut, peanut butter, pecan praline, raspberry and so many more, the options to create a number of unique dessert layouts are endless.

Finally, our SHEI Launch party would not have been complete without the cupcakes! With many options of flavors, icings and patterns, these tasty cakes are truly a work of art.
