Jane’s Cake Station

265 Jalan Kayu
Tel: 64811322



I’m usually only in Jalan Kayu in the later hours of the night for supper excursions or a chat over a full bodied teh tarik. Having been here on countless occasions, I have never noticed Jane’s Chocolate Cake Shop since it is usually already closed by supper time. Jane’s Cake Station came highly recommended and so the chocolate cake enthusiast in my family took a drive down to Jalan Kayu with the sole mission of buying the chocolate cake. (I’m so glad he did, I love chocolate cake!)

One of my pet peeves with cake shops is that they seem to serve cream with small layers of sponge, rather than cake with layer of cream. Over here at Jane’s, the chocolate cake is real cake, (not those cream with cake, cakes) is was made up of two layers of chocolate sponge with a layer of fudge sandwiched in between and the whole cake is covered with fudge. The sponge was moist and soft and the fudge was creamy and smooth, the cake was absolutely gratifying.

The cakes only come in 3 sizes – small, medium and large. We paid $28 for the small.

You should try that there with a teh-cino. It's like a mix between a teh tarik and a cappucino. Layered. Interesting.

tan: next time i'm there i shall give it a try.

cindy: oh yes it is pretty similar to Lana's, but the fudge is slightly different, Jane's is more moist and closer to icing than Lana's.

dev: it was! It was gone in no time.

Only a real cake fan understands how important proportion is! This post is proof that real cake can be found, if one looks hard. :}
