1. Cheese Cake

Creamy, rich, and extremely sinful – we had better make sure to consume only calorie-worthwhile Cheese Cakes. The ones in Souka, Artisan Roast and Nosh is definitely worth every kcal. Albeit being one of the most popular cakes, Cheese Cakes can be an acquired taste for a large portion of the Malaysian population. For those who do not like rich cheese cakes, do try the ones from RT pastry which are light Japanese style – more fluffy and light in terms of texture. For those who do not like intense cheese flavours, Coffea Coffee presents a Lemon Cheesecake with Oatmeal which may deter the strong cheesey flavours. Good Cheese Cake can be found in: Souka, Artisan Roast, Nosh, Souka, RT pastry

2. Red Velvet Cake

Originally founded in America, the roots of Red Velvet Cake can be traced back to the times of the Great Depression and World War 2 when bakers used the natural coloring from beetroot juice to enhance color of their cakes. Not only in olden days, many people are still attracted by its appealing Red color. Red Velvet Cake usually are dark blood-red colored, layered and topped with cream cheese or buttercream frosting. A good rendition should be sufficiently moist albeit retaining a light and fluffy texture. Many are fooled by its daring red color and are completely ignorant to the fact that cocoa is indeed one of the main ingredients in Red Velvet Cake. As such, a good rendition should contain a hint of cocoa flavouring. Good Red Velvet Cakes can be found in: Just Heavenly, Upstairs Café, Whisk Outpost, Souka

3. Tiramisu

With its intense coffee culture, leave it to the Italians to invent the perfect coffee-infused dessert – Tiramisu! Tiramisu is the most popular dessert in Italy and has also been very popular in most parts of the world. Though it has now been adapted to various forms – cakes, cups, or slices – its allure remains the same with its smooth mix of cocoa and espresso flavors soaking up spongy lady finger biscuits and alternately layered with melt-in-your-mouth mascarpone cheese. Indeed, it’s a very complex dessert as the combination of cocoa and espresso flavors has to be just right. A good tiramisu is also adequately moist without being soggy. For best bets of non-alcoholic tiramisus, do try Alexis, Serai, and Cosans Coffee. For the alcoholics, do try Bon Bon Café, Maria’s Restaurant and Café, and Tray Café. Good non-alcoholic Tiramisu can be found in: Alexis, Serai, Cosans Coffee Good alcoholic Tiramisu can be found in: Bon Bon's Cafe, Maria’s Restaurant and Cafe, Tray Cafe

4. Pavlova
