Tasting Lana Cakes’ famed creation – Standard Size Signature Chocolate Fudge Cake, from $48 for 1.15kg
Lana Cake Shop is famed its chocolate fudge cake, which has glossy chocolate ganache slathered on a chiffon-like chocolate cake.
But what exactly makes Lana Cake special?
Unlike typical angmoh-style chocolate fudge cakes, which often comprise a denser butter-based sponge or buttermilk chocolate cake and heavier, sugary frosting whipped up with butter or cream, the Lana ilk are defined by a moist, delicate-textured chocolate chiffon baked with oil, enrobed in a coat of chilled jelly-esque frosting made using ingredients like mung bean flour, gelatine and often little or no dairy products.
Our verdict: Lana Cake is a light, easy-to-eat cake. The flavours are very balanced and chocolatey, with just the right amount of sweetness. It’s a moist, dense and very rich chocolate fudge cake. Not jelak at all.
They also have a few other signature products such as the Mocha Cream Cake, Blueberry Cake, Pineapple Delight Cake, Coconut Dream Cake, Walnut Torte, Fruit Cake and California Date Chocolate Chip Pound Cake. But nothing beats the temptation of fresh warm cocoa aroma lingering around the house.
