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!!!!
