Dessert classic

#CheatDayEats: Cakes

New dessert fads come and go, but good ol’ cake remains one of the all-time favourites. Baked and frosted to perfection, the sweet treats from these 3 cake shops will have you wishing everyday was dessert day:


1. Swich Cafe

We absolutely love how Swich takes the unexpected (in terms of cakes) and makes it extraordinarily delectable—by incorporating local fruits and flavours into their cakes. From mangosteen cake to gula melaka strawberry shortcake, find your cheat day comfort in one of these familiar flavours, or go for the mix and match option at their Damansara Uptown branch where you’ll get to tailor your own flavour combination.


2. Cake Jalan Tiung

If Dr. Hannibal (cake with bloody raspberry and sharp sugar shards) doesn’t interest you, perhaps classic Berry Sue Pavlova will; catchy cake names aside, this charming little dessert place in Shah Alam offers sweet treats that will have you wanting more. To keep up with their weekly changing menu, follow them on Instagram. Don’t say we didn’t warn you though: pictures are extremely delectable.


3. Jaslyn Cakes

One of the hottest dessert haunts in the scene, Jaslyn Cakes takes pride in good old classics like butter and chocolate ganache cakes, and making them “the best versions of themselves”. Organic eggs and flour are used in baking, and with a fine selection of pastries to go with the cakes, we daresay this mini dessert shop is one of the best cheat day havens around.
