The fam and I aren’t big on birthday celebrations – we rarely even get cakes – but my colleagues in Singapore were kind enough to send me one when they heard it was my birthday. Thanks, guys! They used a service called Cake Together, which is like a marketplace for bakers. There are over 100 to choose from and they provide deliveries around the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru and Penang.
My colleagues ordered a five-inch Chocolate Mudcake from Little Collins, a cakery and cafe in Mont Kiara KL. It arrived at the stipulated time. Aside from the cake, the delivery also included a few bottles of Nescafe.
The cake was beautiful. I was expecting it to be very sweet, but it was just right. It was everything a good chocolate mud cake should be: thick, moist and chocolatey. The cake was also very tall, so despite being five inches there was more than enough to share between our fam of four.
The Cake Together website is very easy to navigate: you can browse according to category, including flavours, cake types (brownies, cupcakes, puffs, etc.) or cakes for special occasions. They also offer halal-certified options, as well as vegan and gluten-free cakes.
You can get same day delivery if you order before 4PM. The order will arrive within four hours. Alternatively, you can order in advance and set the date and time you’d like for it to arrive. Very convenient!
The Chocolate Mudcake from Little Collins is affordable at RM55. Depending on where you stay though, the delivery will cost more: to deliver to my place, the charge was RM25, which is almost half the price of the cake. That’s the price of convenience, I guess.
