We are new to Incirlik AB and I wanted to get a delicious tasting cake for my husband’s birthday this week, but the commissary baked goods were somewhat limited. I mentioned this to my Turkish nanny and she told me there is a Turkish bakery right here on base near the Turkish Catina (they share the same parking lot).
We decided to go together to see what my options were and I was quite impressed! There was a big book of cake designs with all kinds of options to choose from. The designs included kids birthday themes, sports themes, elaborate wedding cakes, princess cakes, and even a Turkish “Evil Eye” cake.
The bakery can pretty much make any flavor cake you like, to include the most popular flavors of vanilla and chocolate. You also get to choose your filling. They have flavored icing fillings, fruit fillings and much more. I went with a chocolate cake with pistachio filling and it was absolutely to die for. So moist and tasty; not too sweet!
The cakes are delivered to the base from a famous bakery in downtown Adana called Mado. They have a decent sized book for you to look through for design ideas.
The cake fed at least 25 people and it only cost 70tl. The Turkish employees at the bakery speak very little English so I took my nanny with me to help order the cake. Also, you must place your cake order at least 48 hours prior to pick-up and they only accept credit cards (charged in TL).
They have a great outdoor seating area for you to relax and unwind from a long work day.
So, for your next special event I would highly recommend ordering your cake from Tanker Bufe.
Payment: Credit Cards Only (charged in TL)
