Wonderful cakes from Wonderful Patisserie | 名品中西餅屋

Are you in need of a decent cake for a special celebration? Head to Wonderful Patisserie in London's China Town.

As you may have guessed, it's a Chinese bakery selling all sorts of goodies. I recently needed to buy a cake for a family occasion and decided to get this bad boy:

As with many Chinese cakes, the cake is very light and airy - certainly less heavy than most Western cakes. Very spongy.

This particular one was pandan flavoured, producing a green cake with a subtle vanilla-like taste and aroma. It was covered in cream - not icing - and lots of fruit on top.  Almost healthy.

For £18 for this cake, it's not cheap. But it yielded around eight slices of cake and it's much better than any cake you can get in a supermarket, so it's worth it.
