Other than the cupcake and doughnut craze that has swept the nation, another special type of cake has been quietly making waves though mostly in the Klang Valley.
If you’ve been to Pavillion, 1 Utama and Ikano, you may have spotted these colorful layered cakes in all shapes and sizes. Children are especially fond of them as these cakes come in popular cartoon characters like Lightning Mc Queen of Cars and Barbie dolls and more. Adults like them too, as a jelly cake is deemed healthier and more refreshing.
I remember a friend who loved these jelly cakes so much that she had bought one from KL and drove back with it for her son’s birthday!
Well, Penangites who would like to try these jelly cakes won’t have to drive all the way to KL to get them now. For I have recently discovered a lady who makes them from her home in Bukit Mertajam.
This particular jelly cake was gifted to me by a dear friend for my birthday last month. So I don’t know how much it costs. But I can tell you that the jelly cake has a light refreshing taste of pandan with a texture similar to our local ‘agar-agar’. And its really pretty don’t you think? 🙂 I have tried Q Jelly’s version some time last year and found Q Jelly to be a bit softer and less sweet but without the pandan flavor.
I am told that the lady Ms Chan is based in Bukit Mertajam and for this particular cake she did deliver it to my friend’s house (near Botanical Gardens). For more information on these home made jelly cakes (pricing, deliver charges, design, flavors etc) please contact Ms Chan at 012-5513868
FYI, I just gave her a call and she tells me she will be away from Nov 20-28 and yes she does deliver to Penang island. 🙂
