Original Cakes At Gurney Mall, Penang

MUCH HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT ON SOCIAL MEDIAS ABOUT ORIGINAL CAKES many-many months ago... but I only get  a chance to talk about it now... LOL... See updated I am...

There is no franchise in Ipoh as yet, maybe the market is not there, buying power is lesser here than in other states.  My girl wanted to try this much-shout about cake called Original Cakes which are originated from Taiwan.  There are two branches in Penang, one in Gurney mall and another one in Queensbay.  Before leaving Penang, we went to Gurney to get the taste of this cake... Ended up buying two boxes home.
Freshly taken out from the oven.... 
Half of the giant cake is cheese and half is plain as in original...
We opted for the plain one.... 
The distributing begins....
They measured and made a mark before cutting up... 
Five loaves on each side... 

Once cut, the young lady will put into the boxes...
Since the cakes are still hot and fresh,  
we have to leave the box open for at least half an hour... 
By the time they were in Ipoh, the "swelling" has subsided a bit.... 
Still warm no doubt... 
Taste?
The egg fragrance is there... very soft texture... 
Caan eat two or three pieces at one go is not a problem...
Something like chiffon cake to me with a softer texture... 
So this is what Original Cake tastes like...
By the way, it is RM15 per box.

  4. We have that here. Overrated! A cousin bought for us, most got thrown away, nobody wanted to eat - lucky thing I did not buy myself. Would curse and swear.

    1. Why throw away? Can be eaten, right? Just taste like normal egg sponge cake, right?

    2. Dunno, my sis. Maybe left there too long, nobody eating so did not want to keep, taking up space only. I did not hear of it getting moldy so I don't think that's the reason.

      If she had given it to me to take home, I would eat - I don't complain one, anything edible is good for me...especially if it's free. Hehehehehe!!!!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
