Who would have thought the next latest crazy hype is a simple homemade old-fashion egg sponge cake from Taiwan known as Original Cake had landed at Sunway Velocity, Cheras. Origin from Tamshui, Taiwan (臺灣淡水) that started since 2011. The hype for this shop is simply amazing that have created a huge buzz among all my friends and even week days, you have to queue 2-3 hours to get one. If I am not mistaken, I was told each person can only purchase 1.

I was lucky that my friend help me to make a take away. Love their packaging.

As I open the box, the cake sure do look a simple classic cake that we have locally and easily could get in our pasar malam too. Currently they have 2 flavours as the one my friend got for me is Classic @ RM 18 and another flavour that alot of my friends is aiming at is their Cheese @ RM 25 – that do have a melted slice cheese cheddar.

Other flavours to launch in the future will be :Spurted Chocolate, Healthy Dried Longan, Banana Milk, Cranberry, and Almond and Nuts

As I pick it up, believe the cake texture have dense up as I do expect soft and fluffy sponge cake. As you can see, the base is also quite thick.

After a bite, only release that it is a pretty normal cake. However, the light and airy taste comes after that. The taste of mild fragrant egg with is there and mild milk sweetness that pairs quite well at the very end of the bite. The base that is quite thick, gives you the bitterness of mild burnt taste, also believe that the separation of ingredient is quite prominent where the top half is softer and the bottom half is more dense. The taste is very straight forward and I believe we can get such cake in our Pasar Malam. In the box, mention that it can store maximum of 3 days in refrigerator.

I believe that, the texture will be different if you eat it fresh. However, I will go again after 3 months as to queue for a cake for 2-3 hours, I will settle with some at Pasar Malam first as my friend told me you can get quite similiar to this in Taman Connought Night Market. Another reason for such a long time will be similiar to when Uncle Tetsu started, baking time per oven.

    Not worth the hype. The reason for the crazy queues is not all that hard to grasp—marketing. Once something goes viral on Facebook, Instagram and food blogs, the craze will follow suit, but that does not determine how good something will taste.
