The line, which started from the storefront, stretched infinitely along the corridor of the floor the store was situated in on opening day (Saturday, 4 February) and the next day (Sunday, 5 February). In fact, it took this video almost one whole minute to capture how long the queue was:

According to FB posts of those who joined in the queue, it took at least one to two hours of waiting before they could get their hands on the bakery's freshly-baked goods

Established in Tamsui district, Taiwan in 2011, Original Cake specialises in traditional egg sponge cakes made of only four ingredients - flour, milk, egg, and sugar

The newly opened outlet in Sunway Velocity Mall is not just the bakery's first outlet in Malaysia, it's also it's first store outside of Taiwan. Original Cake currently has four branches in Taiwan - one in Shihlin, and three more in Tamsui, New Taipei.

Aside from the Original egg sponge cake (RM18 per loaf), the bakery also offers a Cheese variety (RM25) that features melty slices of cheddar cheese within the egg sponge cake as well as cheese powder sprinkled on top

Slices of square cheddar cheese imported from New Zealand are sandwiched within the batter, giving the sweet, fluffy cake a hint of cheesy saltiness.

The bakery currently offers only the two varieties mentioned, with alternative and funkier flavours like Spurted Chocolate, Healthy Dried Longan, Banana Milk, Cranberry, and Almond and Nuts to be launched in the near future.

Original Cake Malaysia is located on the Third Floor of the newly-opened Sunway Velocity Mall, though you'll want to wait it out if you're not keen on braving the long queues. ;)

Address: Lot 3-29, 3rd Floor, Sunway Velocity Mall, Lingkaran SV, Jalan Cheras, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.

Opening Hours: 10.00am to 10.00pm daily.

Contact Details: Call 016-996 9831 if you have any enquiries.
