Vanity Kitchen Layer Cake
I received a message from Micheele from Vanity Kitchen recently saying her bakery specialises in making Indonesian Layer Cakes (Kek Lapis Legit) and other Indonesian treats in Kuala Lumpur and asked if I would like to sample some of her cakes.
I checked out their FB Page and was more keen on their pineapple tarts actually as we always purchase pineapple tarts in bulk this time of the year as gifts for Darling’s business acquaintances. I mentioned to her my interest in her pineapple tarts and she said that she’ll send them over together with the cakes.
She sent the parcel through Nationwide Express and dropped me a pdf to keep track of delivery. The next day, I received the parcel and in it was this:
I was taken aback that the cake was not even packed in a hard box. No way can a cake survive being couriered in plastic like that.
That was all in the parcel. No sign of pineapple tarts.
I took a picture of it and immediately sent to Micheele. I also mentioned that the tarts are not in the parcel to which she responded that she was very cautious to send those tarts over through courier. It would be nice if she had told me earlier but nevermind.
So this is the layer cake that made it to my place. It is the original flavour with spekuk spice added.
Spekuk spice in general is a combination of cloves, cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon. This spice is optional and can be opt out if you are not a fan of spices.
After cutting off both ends that has been squashed up, I got a pretty decent looking layer cake.
I can tell that this is a good quality of lapis legit as it is made up of many meticulously consistent thin layers.
I took a bite of it and I must say it live up to my expectations. I have always love good Indonesian layer cake with spekkoek spice. I don’t even bother eating those without the spice as the spice is the one that gives it the sweet aroma making it stand out. This cake is rich and buttery (with very high content of egg) therefore it is advisable to eat small pieces at a time but I can’t help myself from biting into additional slices. I’m sold!
The selling price for this Original Layer cake is RM90 for 1kg and RM170 for 2kg.
They also have Layer Cake with Chocolate and Prune at RM100 for 1kg and RM180 for 2kg but I did not sample those.
PREORDER of minimum 3 days is required as all their cakes are baked fresh to order.
Pick up point anywhere in KL city centre area or ampang. Other location can be delivered depending on the days. For more information, check out their FB page – Vanity Kitchen.
