Original Cake Review

Original Cake Store Front at Westgate

The OG of Taiwanese castella cakes has arrived in Singapore and have made their home on the second level of Westgate Mall at Jurong East.

The cakes are available in 3 flavours –

  • Frozen Chocolate ($15, u.p. $16.50)
  • Original ($10, u.p. $11.50)

The cakes are baked in massive loaves and then precisely sliced into blocks for packaging,

Videos of these cakes have been going viral online, featuring tall, fluffy domes of sponge cakes taken out of the oven, and sliced while they’re piping hot. Freshly baked daily, Original Cake prides itself in whipping up pillows of soft, cottony, and bouncy castella cakes that have a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Just look at that pillowy crumb!

For the purists, go for the Original ($10, u.p. $11.50). The texture of the cake is very fine, and remains soft even when kept in the fridge overnight. The flavour of egg isn’t very strong, and isn’t overly sweet, so this will definitely appeal to those with lighter taste buds.

As for those who prefer something more decadent, the Golden Cheese ($12, u.p $13.50) comes layered with processed cheddar cheese slices in the middle of the cake. When eaten warm, the cheese takes on an oozy texture, and adds a subtle hint of savouriness.

The Frozen Chocolate ($15, u.p. $16.50) is studded with HERSHEY’s chocolate chips and is served cold. The cake is fudgy and bittersweet, a more indulgent treat for chocolate lovers.

These cakes are great for sharing, with each pillowy slab good for eight to ten people. To prevent the cake from drying out, store it in an airtight box in the refrigerator, and warm it up in the microwave before consuming.
