Modern cakes

For a real wow-worthy cake, you can’t look past Ennoble by Elevete (pictured top), the brand behind several of Instagram’s most showstopping cakes, and the supplier to some of your favourite cafes. One of its most popular creations: the Popstar, a salted caramel chocolate cake crowned with a delicious and photogenic ring of popcorn. Another crowd-pleaser is the Locale, featuring the familiar flavours of pandan and gula melaka; a towering green dream of pandan cake layers sandwiched with addictive gula melaka icing and topped with caramel and coconut shavings. And of course, Ennoble by Elevate does the classic Burnt Cheesecake.

Ice cream cakes

Can you say “ice cream cake” and not think immediately of Baskin-Robbins? The place is an ice cream institution. And before you ask, no, ice cream cakes are not just for kids — though Baskin-Robbins definitely knows what will appeal to its younger consumers. There’s the adorable Happy Bunny cake for young’uns, or the rather more grown-up Chocolate Tuxedo, encased in bars of milk chocolate and sprinkled with chocolate shavings, for the adults.

is loved by mothers and grandmothers all over KL, and for good reason — its cakes have come to represent classic celebrations, from birthdays to anniversaries to graduations. For a no-brainer, pick a chocolate option; the Chocolate Indulgence combines layers of dark, milk and white creamy filling, while the Moist Chocolate Cake delivers a straightforward chocolatey hit (perfect with a glass of milk). And that ’90s standard, the New York Cheese, is still celebrated here.
