Original Cake, Taiwan’s famous Castella cake shop, is opening its first outlet in Singapore on 23 September 2017 at 10.30am.
Original Cake is a well-known bakery from Taipei that specialises in Castella cakes. Staying true to their original recipe derived from tradition, they have since come up with new and innovative variations to trump the competition—namely their Frozen Chocolate version that is made with HERSHEY’s chocolate chips that we are all excited for!
Having only been established in 2010, they already have four outlets in Taiwan and eight outlets around Malaysia (3 in Penang, 3 in Klang Valley, 1 in Putrajaya and 1 in Johor Bahru); this is a true testament to their success and outstanding Castella cakes.
To celebrate its official opening, Original Cake will be giving away free 800 Castella cakes on 23 September 2017 (on a first-come-first-serve basis).
