We apologise in advance for sabotaging your diet plan.
Food trends come and go, but we believe cake, like ice cream, is a classic that can never go out of style. Whether you’re a fan of the classic chocolate cake, or a lover of fusion and creative renditions of the timeless dessert, we’ve put together a list of cakeries you need to try pronto for pure indulgence!
1. Whisk Espresso Bar + Bake Shop
Other than taking custom orders, Whisk also carries a wide range of coffee and home-baked cakes that would make the perfect combination for a relaxing afternoon reading session. With two outlets in 1 Utama and Empire Shopping Gallery in Subang Jaya, their famous Pink Stacks™ cake gets sold out in a blink of an eye, so make sure to follow them on Instagram (@whisk_kl) for updates to avoid disappointment!
1) LG 3A Empire Shopping Gallery, Jalan SS16/1, Petaling Jaya, 47500, Malaysia
2) G139 1 Utama Shopping Centre, 1 Lebuh Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, 47800, Malaysia
A hidden gem in TTDI, Souka shares a shoplot with its neighbouring cafe, Mukha — which makes it potentially harder to spot. Nevertheless, this small and simple cakery provides cakes that are not only unbelievably delicious but they can also remind you of your grandmother’s home-made cakes that can never be replaced. Lovely!
Address: 15, Lorong Rahim Kajai 13, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
3. Swich Cafe
“Our cakes are slices of pure heaven!”, states Swich Cafe’s introduction and we simply cannot agree more. Made from only the freshest and finest ingredients, their out-of-the-box ideas such as Jackfruit Upside Down Cake and Coconut Durian Cheesecake with chendol drizzled in gula melaka never fail to blow our minds and make us craving for more.
1) 54, Jalan SS21/58, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
2) Level G3 Publika Shopping Gallery, 1 Jala Dutamas 1, Solaris Dutamas, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
4. Jaslyn Cakes
Owned by Jaslyn, an accomplished baker from Le Cordon Bleu London, this modest but full-of-character bakeshop popped up recently along the busy streets of Telawi. Giving an interesting twist on the classics, Jaslyn Cakes emphasises on using only organic flour and free-range eggs with no artificial flavouring, giving the desserts a healthier touch but still oh-so-satisfying. Guilt-free cakes? YES, PLEASE!
Address: 7A, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar Baru 59100, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
5. Su’s Cakes for Kicks
Founded back in 2004 as a home-based bakery, cake lovers can now enjoy Su’s creative and delicious home-made goodness in the convenience of a shopping mall. Her extensive range of cheesecakes from cempedak to white chocolate to durian gives a good kick to the taste buds while constantly reminding us why cake is the best thing that ever happened in life.
Address: Fahrenheit 88, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
6. Le Trianon Cakes
Offering only two types of cakes, Le Trianon Cakes is a take-away boutique specialising in chocolate cakes. Adopting the same name as the renowned chocolate art in the French patisserie world, Le Trianon’s cakes might look plain and boring on the outside but what they do to your taste buds is beyond imagination. Let’s just say, you will never know until you try it for yourself!
1) Lot LG-07, Citta Mall, Jalan PJU 1A/48, Ara Damansara, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
2) The Curve, No. 6, Jalan PJU 7/3, Mutiara Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
7. Winter Lover Bakery House
Tucked away in a small corner of Kota Damansara, this dreamy little dessert space scored big fame for their one-of-a-kind mille crepe cakes. With more than 15 unique flavours to choose from, it comes as no surprise that flocks of loyal customers would frequent the cakery on an almost daily basis. To all durian lovers out there, we beg you to give their Musang Durian King Mille Crepe a try!
Address: No. 22A-1, Jalan PJU 5/21, Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
