In Afghanistan culture, all weddings must have a proper cake. Ravazi Patisserie caters to this market. There are bakeries and patisseries all over the main cities and villages of Afghanistan, but this shop is special.
The Shop and Owner
Mr. Razavi is from Ghazni, and he is the one who started this shop. He learned cake baking and decorating in Iran. He said that while he has good business, rent is expensive, and of course he does support a family with his business. A typical week this patisserie caters to 3-4 weddings.
Recently, he has started making and selling long 3-layer ice cream "bars" approximately 2 feet long and 4 inches wide to complement the cake. He slices the ice cream into approximately 1" slices. He sells these for 900 Afs and one "ice cream bar" would feed 20-30 people.
