That’s right, A Slice of heaven is now open for business and check out the photos from the launch, held mid week – it was a tres tres chi chi event, with fabulous food, wine and cakes too of course. As a matter of fact, cakes, were the main show – I loved the bite sized red velvet – so sexy and delectable! There was also some amazingly decadent Japanese finger food that was served during the party that was courtesy of Fukuharu, my favourite being the Mentai Sushi (codfish roe sushi), which was just too damn unctuous and tasty for words.
Though there’s no shortage of world-class bakers in this town, A Slice of Heaven’s cakes are another story entirely. So far, I find that many cake shops and bakers in Kuala Lumpur, generally fall into two camps: prettily sculpted confections that taste like cardboard or perfectly delicious creations with the personality of a doorstop. The cakes crafted by A Slice of Heaven, manage to hit the aesthetic-culinary sweet spot. And I’m not just saying this because one of the partners is my cousin (hah!) but their cakes, baked from scratch are festive without looking garish and most important, taste as good as they look!
In the cutthroat world of Kuala Lumpur confectionery, A Slice of Heaven has a devout following, and with good reason. Though these bakers, Nigel Skelchy and Allan Yap excel at classic/modern, home-style wedding cakes, they’ve been known to create deliciously colorful, dainty and whimsical confections as well, that are to die for. My vote goes to them every time. If you have not tried their cakes, you’re missing out;)
