What do celebrations like birthdays, weddings and anniversaries have in common? The word “cake” is one of the most common answers you will find here. There are many commercial and artisan bakeries specialising in cakes no matter if they are ready-made or custom-made. So, let’s get down to it as we covered a selected list of Top 10 Cake Shops in KL & Selangor worth checking out.

Nine years and still going strong, Jaslyn Cakes’ devotion to freshly-baked and great-tasting cakes continues to attract both loyal customers and newcomers alike. Choices are aplenty here, covering the likes of Carrot Cake, Salted Caramel Chocolate Ganache Cake and Vanilla Bean Cheesecake. Serving sizes, in the meantime, are available according to your needs: 6″, 7″, 8″ and 9″. You can locate Jaslyn Cakes at its original outlet in Jalan Telawi, Bangsar or one of its two branches in Mont Kiara or Desa ParkCity.

Prefer enjoying your cake infused with an alcoholic twist? That’s where Cake Tella specialises in such aforementioned cakes.

Others such as the Tiramisu Kahlua and the opera cake-style Roku Gin 12 Layer Torte are available as well. Despite Cake Tella’s popularity in selling alcoholic cakes, they also baked non-alcoholic options, namely Lemon Poppyseed Cheesecake and Oreo Chilled Cheesecake.
