#24: Crazy About Cakes

Ahh, cake... We all love them, we all crave them. But despite our lifelong love for cake, the cake scene in Malaysia has shifted from old school bakeries to custom cakes made by home bakers. So we speak to Jessica Ting (a.k.a. Miss Shortcakes) and Tao (from Tao Bakes Cakes), two prominent cake-makers in the Klang Valley, to learn about their sweet beginnings.They share their wild cake stories, and weigh in on the boom in custom cakes in KL. From modelling cakes in the shape of the KL Tower, to a story about poop cake, to the very first cake-off in the studio, this episode was a wild one.
