In Teil drei meiner Interview-Reihe möchte ich euch gerne “The Candy Cup” und die beiden Gründer Marco und Sylvia vorstellen.
Die beiden haben in 2017 ihr Projekt “The Candy Cup” gegründet und beglücken seither die Omanis mit leckeren, kreativen Süßspeisen zu Anlässen wie Geburtstagen, Hochzeiten und Jubiläen. Dabei bringen sie auch gerne Rezepte aus ihrer Heimat Ägypten ein wie z.B. Konafa Mango, Konafa Redvelvet und Konafa Tiramisu.
1) Age, profession, marital status, kids
Marco and Sylvia both are Engineers. We are 32 Years old, married couple since 2016, we were blessed with a baby boy ( Jason ) in Oct 2020.
Sylvia is passionate with desserts.
In late 2017 we decided to start our project (The Candy Cup), we have an innovative mix between eastern and western desserts.
In early 2018 we joined the winter weekly food market (Souq es Sabt) in Al Mouj. We remember these though days as we were working extensively on Friday to bake freshly our desserts to take to the market Saturday morning. It was an amazing enjoyable experience for us and we still love to “Bake Someone Happy”.

To be honest, we love the diversity of food here but we mostly make our food at home. However, we love KFC! for its amazing delicious fried chicken and spicy fries
