Get a cake delivered to the doorstep or do the ordering at home and pick it up on your own. Here's a round-up of the city's best online cake stores. Let them eat cake!

Little Tee Cakes

Delivery: Pick-up only
Price: From RM70

If you’re looking for a good tea-time cake, sisters Hui Yii and Mei Yii of Little Tee Cakes take simple, homemade cakes up a notch with impeccable frosting. They offer café staples like red velvet, walnut carrot cake with cream cheese and a tempting chocolate cake with peanut butter, but we’re rooting for the lemon poppy seed cake– it’s light and fluffy with a not-too-cloying lemon cream cheese frosting.

Delivery: RM10-RM25; limited to areas within Klang Valley. Pick-up option available
Price: From RM60-RM75 per cake (whole 6-inch)

Did you know that Swich does orders as well? Some of the best cakes in the city have come out of the ovens at Swich. Owner Cheng uses seasonal fruits to come up with masterful surprises like the now-infamous cempedak cake and Musang King durian mud pie. Don't make the mistake of skipping the near-perfect Valrhona chocolate cake (from RM75). If you're looking to customise a celebration cake or mix around flavours, Cheng will be happy to do that for you. She'll also try to fulfil any requests to suit your dietary preferences.

Baked KL

Delivery: RM1 per km. Pick-up option available
Price: From RM28

Whoopie pies, cookies and fudgy brownies – this is the centre for them. Baked KL’s offerings are limited, but what they lack in numbers they make up in quality. The flourless Madagascar Brownies (RM48 for 12 pieces) in particular are thick, moist and super fudgy, but they’re easy to eat in large quantities (don’t say we didn’t warn you). The century-long argument on whether brownies should be cakey or fudgy ends here because as the baker sisters at Baked KL effortlessly justify, the latter ‘takes the cake’.

California Cookie Company

Delivery: RM18
Price: Cakes from RM65

California Cookie Company claims that their Carol’s Carrot Cake is ‘the best carrot cake you’ll ever taste’, and they’re not far off. Fragrant with spices, studded with chunks of pineapple and visible shreds of carrot, the cake is moist and flavourful, though possibly marred by an oversweet icing. California Cookie Company is also known for its soft giant cookies.

  • Things to do

Whether you're a lover of dogs or cats, the opening of pet cafés in town has got local animal lovers into a bit of a frenzy (both the good and bad kind). Not to be confused with pet-friendly cafés (ie, restaurants which allow pets but don't house any of their own), a pet café is a themed establishment with animals as its main attraction; you generally pay an entry or drink fee to hang out with the resident pets within the given time – much like a petting zoo with free-roaming domesticated animals. We decided to pay these places a visit to better help you decide which places are worth your time and money.
