Wedding: King’s Bakery

by gigi on February 10, 2008

I went to King’s Bakery one day to continue our hunt for a wedding cake. This place came recommended by my dad as a good bakery for Chinese baked goods so we thought we would give their western-style cakes a try too. King’s Bakery is nestled in a little plaza right by Aberdeen Centre on No. 3 Road in Richmond. I didn’t make an appointment so I just dropped by
one morning and picked up some cakes and drove over to Jenkins’ house to do our tasting.

We started first with the flourless chocolate cake. This cost $6 but was actually quite big. The cake was really moist and full of rich chocolaty flavour. I really liked this but wasn’t sure how good it would be as a wedding cake since it was a bit crumbly and eating just chocolate cake seemed a bit plain.

Next, we had the German pear cheese cake. We couldn’t really taste the pear flavour in this and it tasted like a regular plain cheesecake. It also wasn’t as creamy as I like my cheesecakes.

Next came the Tiramisu. This came with some “shards” of chocolate that surrounded the cake itself. The coffee and chocolate flavour here was very light, which may appeal to some palates but I like mine to have a slightly richer taste.

Last came a chocolate sponge cake with whipped cream and chocolate. I found this to be a bit bland and couldn’t really taste the chocolate. The layers of whipped cream and chocolate were ok but I would have preferred more chocolate chunks and less whipped cream. :)

Moreover, the cake had trouble staying together once you poked your fork in:

My favourite of the four cakes was definitely the flourless chocolate cake. It was very rich in flavour but not heavy at all. I found that the taste of the other cakes was too mild and bland for my liking. I wonder if their other baked goods (i.e. Chinese buns and pastries) are better tasting though as I have heard pretty good reviews from most people. I would definitely come back and give that a try some day.
