Not everyone has the opportunity to travel the world in search of the perfect pastries, so Amna wanted to bring them to Saudi Arabia. There is so much more to international pastries than what meets the local eye. A world of flavours and textures that can be created by using high quality ingredients and different baking methods, and we are so excited to share them with you!
A cake 25 years in the making.
Inspired by her late grandfather—a chef by training who loved to cook—Amna found her passion for baking as a little girl. Ever since the age of seven, she’s been dreaming of opening a global bakery chain. A dream which is now becoming reality.
The dream didn’t come true overnight though—Amna studied hospitality management in Switzerland (2007-2010), attended pastry school in Paris (2012-2013) and business school in Barcelona (2017-2019). She also worked in restaurants throughout.
While the bakery is named after Amna, she chose the name for what it stands for—trust. A trustworthy brand with an honest and open approach to baking, using only the best ingredients and techniques from around the world.

Quality Over Quantity
Developing the perfect recipes.
Having started as a cloud kitchen means we don’t have big overheads. In turn, it means we have the luxury of taking our time to introduce new menu items. That’s why you will find our initial offering to be small—we have opted to launch one pastry at a time. Doing so, gives us the time to perfect each new recipe down to the last crumb.
Empowering women, one pastry at a time.
While we have chosen to start small, our aim is to grow big. As we grow, an important part of our journey will be to hire and train local women in the art of baking and scalable business management.
Our Guiding Principles
We realise that we've set out on a long and lifelong journey, but nothing makes us happier! To help us along the way, we have set four pillars to guide our every step.
Respect, honesty and fairness are our guiding lights. We believe in being honest with customers and stakeholders alike; treating ourselves and those around us with fairness and respect.
We are real people, baking real cakes, using real (natural) ingredients and we like to be real with people about who we are and what we do. We believe that’s the only way to build lasting connections with our customers.
Spirit of Service
While we serve international cakes, our spirit of service was born right here in Jeddah. We believe Saudi Arabia is an incredibly service oriented nation. That’s something we’re thankful to have learned from and would like to pay it forward to all our customers.
We believe in doing things right, down to the smallest detail. To achieve that, we are driven by focus, growing naturally with passion and hard work.
