AMAZING
1st TRES LECHES CAKE
That Last Slice, Subang Jaya
“A type of "wet" cake that's just light, fresh and milky. Vanilla genoise drenched in three types of milk, topped with whipped mascarpone and a light dusting of cinnamon.” So freaking amazing. So light so good so everything! This cake was delivered to me as a gift from the sibling as we are unable to meet up because of the Restricted Movement Order. It’s really too bad (or is it? 😈) that I can’t share it... 😜
2nd NANGKA WHITE CHOCOLATE CAKE
That Last Slice, Subang Jaya
Birthday cake one year ago that I never managed to post. No cake this year as March 18 is the first day of the Restricted Movement Order/Movement Control Order/Controlled Movement Order 😅. This cake was heavenly. Light, fluffy with just the right amount of nangka (jackfruit) without it being too overwhelming. That Last Slice certainly has excellent cakes!
3rd ONDE ONDE
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Fragrant pandan cake layered with cream and topped with shredded coconut and shaved gula melaka. Love this cake interpretation of our local favourite onde onde kuih. The cake itself was soft and fluffy, with the gula melaka adding just enough flavour without being overly sweet. A must-try!
4th CHRISTMAS SALTED CARAMEL GINGERBREAD CAKE
Kooky Cream, Petaling Jaya
Love. So much love. Wish I could take a better picture but this place has really dim lighting. You’ll just have to take my word for it that it’s a really good slice of cake.
5th NEAPOLITAN
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Strawberry cake with bits of fresh strawberries, vanilla cake and chocolate fudge cake with a chocolate mousse. It’s like eating neapolitan ice cream in cake form. So good!
6th PANDAN SLICE
The Midnight Baker, Kuala Lumpur
It’s a simple cake. Just pandan. But boy, do they do it right. Made with no artificial colouring or flavouring, this cake was moist and fragrant with the smell of pandan. That intense green colour comes from the generous amount of pandan juice painstakingly extracted from many, many pandan leaves. Pairs well with coffee.
REALLY GOOD
7th TARO CAKE
CAFFEINE;, Kuala Lumpur
This sold like hot cakes so I’m glad I managed to snag the last slice! Delicate taro mousse sandwiched between soft, fluffy sponge and then topped with almond flakes, pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut for some added texture. So good and light, plus it’s PURPLE!!! 😁
8th MEDOVIK
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Apparently the baker learnt how to make this Russian layered honey cake from her Russian mother-inlaw. Can’t get more authentic than that!
9th CHOCOLATE MASCARPONE CAKE
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Tall, dark and handsome. Oh, and rich too. 😉
10th COCONUT RASPBERRY CAKE
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Soft, fluffy vanilla sponge, tart raspberry compote, fragrant coconut... all combined to give the lightest of cakes that just makes you want to keep digging in. I like this. It was perfect with my iced black.
11th RAINBOW CAKE
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Definitely one of the best rainbow cakes I’ve had. At least this one doesn’t turn my tongue blue! 🤣
12th PANDAN GULA MELAKA
CAFFEINE;, Kuala Lumpur
Homemade pandan infused butter cake with aromatic gula melaka sauce, served with coconut shavings. Wow, this was good. The cake itself was moist and soft and full of fragrant pandan flavour and that beautiful gula melaka sauce just helps to elevate the whole cake to another level. This really tasted like it just came out of someone’s kitchen!
13th MANDARIN ORANGE BERRIES CAKE
CREAM, Petaling Jaya
This was a mandarin orange cake with some sort of yoghurt-y berry frosting. Looking at the cake I thought it would be dry but it turned out to be soft and crumbly and yummy. So far I’ve not been disappointed in the selection of cakes at Cream. Let’s hope the streak continues!
14th MANDARIN ORANGE KUMQUAT CAKE
Sipping Corner Cafe, Puchong
Moist and soft with delicate flavours. It’s delicious but it’s also quite dense so I would suggest sharing this. I can imagine this would be perfect with a long black.
15th MATCHA CHA-CHA
Sipping Corner Cafe, Puchong
Very smooth and delicate matcha mousse with a base of the lightest fluffiest sponge. Melts in your mouth!
16th LEMON BLUEBERRY CAKE
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Light and fluffy cake that would go well with tea. Love that there’s a generous amount of blueberries in the cake!
17th TORT PRAZDNICHNIY
Torte by Linda, Puchong
Layered with dulce de leche and chocolate ganache, this was rich and yet melt-in-your-mouth. This place is worth visiting for their Russian inspired layered cakes and pastries. I think I saw at least 5 different varieties of Russian Torte when I was there. Hard to choose just one!
18th GLUTEN FREE BANANA CHOCOLATE CAKE
The Midnight Baker, Kuala Lumpur
Tastes A LOT better than it looks. I have to apologize, I was having issues with the lighting and white balance but please just trust me, this is a good cake 😁.
19th KETO PANDAN CAKE
The Midnight Baker, Kuala Lumpur
Sugar-free, gluten-free, low carb but definitely NOT flavour-free. We managed to snag a slice before another customer came in and bought up everything. Lucky! I don’t think it’s as good as their regular pandan slice, but for a keto version this is definitely very good.
21st GREENTEA BLUEBERRY CAKE
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Greentea cake with a blueberry centre topped with little salted caramel balls. Nice balance of flavours.
22nd PRINCESS ROLL CAKE
KAKIYUKI @ Taman Paramount, PJ, Petaling Jaya
Soft vanilla sponge, fresh whipped cream, vanilla custard and raspberry jelly covered in their homemade marzipan. I felt that the marzipan was a little too soft but overall the cake was quite enjoyable. Nice to try once but not necessarily worth a re-order. And no, it did not taste like IKEA’s princess cake.
23rd JINGLE BELL
Xiao By Crustz, Petaling Jaya
Mango mousse with a raspberry centre and a pistachio sponge. One for mango lovers.
PRETTY GOOD
24th VICTORIA SANDWICH
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Victorian sandwich cake with Swiss meringue buttercream and layers of strawberry jam. It’s not a bad cake, in fact I don’t think I’ve come across a bad cake here but I’m partial towards the onde onde.
25th ORANGE CAKE
Eight Ounce Coffee Co., Kuala Lumpur
Ok I love love love love love that orange slice on the cake!
26th CARROT CAKE
Yin's Sourdough Bakery and Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Not the best, not the worse. I feel like I came on a wrong day for cakes 😭. I might order this again in the future just to see if it’s better.
27th APPLE WALNUT POUND CAKE
Yin's Sourdough Bakery and Cafe, Petaling Jaya
I reckon this would be good with a long black. But then again I think everything is good with coffee 😜.
28th CHAMOMILE HONEY CAKE
Happ Cafe, Petaling Jaya
We ordered this more for the cute factor than anything else. It’s actually quite nice, just a little on the sweet side. I probably sound stupid saying that because it is honey after all.
29th ARDOR SUMMER
Donutes Puchong Jaya, Puchong
Midnight shenanigans because... Cake. Because... It is always somebody's birthday somewhere. This is a soft, fluffy vanilla cake with a passion fruit filling. Disappeared quite quickly as well.
30th GASCA
Donutes Puchong Jaya, Puchong
Chocolate cake and 62% chocolate mousse. This had an apricot filling in it. Great idea since that helped to tone down the richness of the chocolate.
