It’s not often my mum beats me to finding out about new eateries in the neighbourhood, so when she suggested Moonlight Cake House in Bandar Puchong Jaya to get some sweets and bakes, I was curious (apparently she found out about the shop through a special cake her friends ordered.. but we’ll get to that in a bit.) :)
The outlet was massive, spanning across three units and separated into two floors. The ground floor was a bakery, and upstairs was a cafe serving Western food. The smell of warm, freshly baked bread filled the air, causing my stomach to rumble the instant I walked into its cool, air conditioned interior. The beautiful pastries on display were like something out of the Japanese anime Yakitate. There were so many varieties!
Cutesy fondant dolls. I like the shitty one *badumtsh*
Colourful macarons – a box of nine costs RM27+.
So many varieties of bread and ingredient pairings, both savoury and sweet. Idk what ‘Saha’ is, but it looked like it had some sweet, custardy filling.
Wolfberry walnut and ‘Europe bun’.
In this part of Asia, people rarely eat bread but it’s a trend that is slowly changing, especially with cafes and bakeries like these that are bringing in fancy breads – not the everyday brown, white or wheat loaves.
Black Sesame Cream Cheese Walnut buns – they looked so fluffy. Who knew bread could be this attractive?
There was also a section for pastries – croissants, curry chicken puffs, spring onion pizza (below), blueberry danishes, chocolate and egg tarts, etc.
Not to mention cookies, sweets, biscuits and chocolates.
Pretty cakes of all shapes and sizes entice visitors near the cashier. They were a bit on the pricey side though (RM60 and above).
“Snow White”, shaped like a red apple.
Individual cakes going for RM9.50 ++
….and this is the special cake I mentioned earlier! Durian cake, shaped like the king of fruits itself – it looked so lifelike! My mum’s friends bought one for a birthday celebration and she saw photos of it on Whatsapp, which was why she knew about the place. I’d love to try this for my birthday, but it’s a long ways away and there aren’t any occasions to celebrate lol.
More pretty cakes. I’d imagine the kids (and even adults) would love the colourful and fun designs. Reminds me of that TV show I loved to watch in high school called Cake Boss, where they make customised cakes for special occasions. Baking is truly an art of its own. :)
A cake of a Chinese deity, Guan Dai, riding a horse. Yes, it is a cake. Impressive, no?
Rilakumma Star Wars Cake is adorbs.
The shop also sells stuff like homemade kaya (coconut jam)…
Fruit, coffee, cheese and vanilla rolls…
As well as freshly sandwiches and wraps for those on the go.
With so many varieties to choose from, we agonised over the display counters trying to decide what to buy. In the end I got a Marble Cake (above) (RM5.80). The squares of bread were fluffy and soft, sweet with a hint of chocolate. Tasty bread, by all means.
Would love to come back for more bread and cakes, although they are on the pricier side (prices average RM3+ and above, usual bakeries sell for RM2+) and maybe try out their cafe someday. :)
