Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have heard of Castella cakes by now as the bouncy Japanese sponge cake is currently the latest food trend that has exploded on social media.
It seems that the ongoing Castella cake fad has brought yet another brand to Singapore shores and it is none other than the famous Original Cake from Taiwan—the first cake store in Tamsui Old Street which specialises in Castella cakes.
The bakery is so successful among their loyal customers that it currently has four stores in Taiwan and six outlets in Malaysia.
Great news for all west siders! Original Cake will be opening its first outlet in Westgate. This is the second Castella cake shop located in the west of Singapore, after the launch of Ah Mah Homemade Cake in Bukit Panjang Plaza.
Original Cake is known for serving fresh, out-of-the-oven Castella cakes that are made upon order to keep up with the highest standards for their customers.
Besides the Original and Cheese flavours, we are hoping that Original Cake will also be offering other signature favourites from Taiwan such as Spurted Chocolate, Banana Milk, Cranberry, Almond and Nuts and Healthy Dried Longan.
Gear up for the queue that is probably going to form outside their first outlet in Westgate when they are ready for business. Original Cake has yet to announce its official opening date, so keep your eyes peeled for it.
In the meantime, those who are not willing to wait can always head over to Le Castella, Antoinette or Ah Mah Homemade Cake which might have a shorter queue after the opening of Original Cake in Singapore.
