Review 101 : The Cakery – Hit or Miss?

Life is too short to say “no” to cake!

Cake has been an essential part of our lives since Germans first baked them in middle ages to celebrate Kinderfest. Along the way, improvements happen and we commercialized baking essentials. Centuries later, no celebration is ever complete without the presence of cake. Talk about significance.

From just having a cake in a party, we are spoilt with the choices of cakes to choose from a countless number of bakeries. Recently I discovered a new bakery – that offers over 30 choices of cakes, cupcakes and brownies at a very affordable price. It’s “The Cakery“.

The Cakery.

Launched in May 2020, The Cakery is managed by Kavi Vithya, a cooking enthusiast that started her journey from the tender age of 8, all thanks to her grandmother who owns a restaurant. As Kavi Vithya works her magic on the cakes, brownies and cupcakes, Vinodh Menon, the founder takes care of the operational aspects and together, they aspire to become a prominent brand that delivers delicious cakes across the country.

With the mouth watering choices and aesthetically pleasing cakes and cupcakes, I wouldn’t be surprised if The Cakery becomes one of the sought – after bakeries in Malaysia. The price itself is reasonable, between Rm100 to Rm165 while 12 pcs of cupcakes are Rm75 for all flavors except for cheese, which is Rm85 while the brownies are Rm65.

Review.

First look ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I ordered the Pandan Gula Melaka cake – I got to be honest, out of the lot. This is my favorite. I’ve tried almost every Pandan Gula Melaka cakes out there, and this is definitely one of the pleasant ones. Let me start with the smell – OH SO GOOD! This is the first thing that caught my attention, and I am not lying when I say the smell alone got me drooling. Pandan leaves have a naturally sweet taste and soft aroma and when you add the aroma of Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar), its instant heaven ( if that’s even a term but that’s the best way I can describe it).

The cake decoration is minimal but classy. I think it is beautiful and almost couldn’t get myself to cut it. Let be honest, I love everything in minimal so the cake is just the kind I like. Coated with fresh cream – and bits of Pandan leaves on the top is definitely a sight for the sore eyes. At least for my sore eyes, 😜.

Taste ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As pretty as the cake looks – the taste will not disappoint you. If you love coconut, then you don’t want to miss trying the Pandan Gula Melaka cake. You’ll find generous amount of shredded coconut in between the layers! I think Ms Kavi Nithya is a genius because this masterpiece she created – a perfect combination of fresh cream, caramelized Gula Melaka, shredded coconut & Pandan flavor is truly the bomb!

Like I’ve mentioned earlier, I love Pandan Gula Melaka cake and never missed the chance to try out one every-time I visit a bakery or cafe but very rare I find one that isn’t so When I say overwhelming which means, the combination of all the said ingredients above becomes too much after two bites. I’ve got a lot of bitter experiences where I feel like puking 🤢 because the combination is just awful for my taste bud!

Lucky for me, I didn’t experience the same for the birthday cake I got from The Cakery. I finished one BIG slice of the cake and enjoyed every bit 🤤. One of the crucial factor is that the cake is not too sweet despite all the ingredients, which was surprising for me. I’m not a sweet tooth so most of the time, I try a cake for the experience sake and this is one of the best Pandan Gula Melaka cake in town. The cake isn’t too dry which I think is one of the adding factor to what makes the cake delicious as it is.

Yes! That’s the huge size I am talking about!

Price ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reasonable! Reasonable! Reasonable! There I said thrice because for the size and quality of the cake – RM120 is reasonable! Try it once and I am sure you’d agree with me too! The Cakery is generous with the ingredients, hence its worth every penny you spend 💸💸.

Temptation Level 💯
