Chocolate Cake needs no introduction. It is one of societies’ must have all-time favourite. Walk into any cake store and you will definitely find a chocolate cake lying around. Ask for any cake flavour and Chocolate will certainly be in the list. Ask the children what is their favourite cake and Chocolate Cake will be one of them. Made out of mainly cocoa and sometimes with other well-known ingredients such as fudge, vanilla crème or Cream Cheese, there are plenty of exciting ways to make and bake it.
With so many types of Chocolates to choose from, it is hard to come up with a decision. Fortunately, here at Cakes Corner we can help you decide; just scroll down and take a look at all the moist, dark or rich chocolate cake gallery we offer. Made from the finest and freshest cocoa, the bittersweet will not only delight the senses but also be comforting and memorable.
One of the best attribute about the chocolate cake is that it can be used almost any kind of event such as dinner parties, birthday parties, for love ones on Valentine’s day and any kind of celebrative occasion. It can be used as a Birthday Cake, a complimentary flavor in Cheese Cakes, even as a Wedding Cake!
Often commercial bakeries have to balance out the cost of ingredients and other overhead cost against the final price but here at Cakes Corner, with all the benefits of a home-based premise, we can reduce that overhead cost and instead use high quality ingredients.
Commonly when it comes to butter, most commercial places go for bulk butter to reduce the cost. The issue here is that the quality may not be the best. Fortunately for us, we have the room to use high quality butter imported from the New Zealand or from the US. As butter is one of the main ingredients in most cakes, it is absolutely necessary to have the best quality we can find. Once you try our cakes, you will definitely know the difference
This also applies for our other ingredients such as milk, cheese, flavorings, and colorings. Often commercial cake stores get their colorings from our neighbouring Indonesian suppliers. These coloring prices are more competitive but it will definitely stain the fingers and it is hard to come off, unlike the ones we use which are from America. So imagine consuming it!
When it comes to milk and cheese, we all know that New Zealand has the freshest air-flown branded products there is in the market. All these is possible because of the lesser overhead cost we have.
Our bakers and cake artists pride themselves on only serving the best quality cakes there is for a reasonable price.

How To Store Leftover Cake
Thankfully, cakes normally finish fast especially those from Cakes Corner. However, there are times we want to save part of the cakes for the next few days. It is important to know that two main culprits behind a dry and stale cake. They are none other than, heat and humidity; where it can cause the cake to be out of shape, loss of moisture or go moldy thanks to our Kuching climate.
One trick to maintain the freshness is to apply icing to the cut side of the cake. This acts as a seal against moisture loss from the cake. If that cannot be done, the next way is to press a piece of plastic wrap directly into the sliced side and make sure it sticks.
Due to our Kuching climate, it is best to store the cake in the refrigerator. Or the next best thing would be in an air-conditioned room away from sunlight. That way it can last 1-2 days while it can last 3-4 days in the fridge. Please be reminded to seal the cake, either in an air tight container or plastic wrap all over to prevent any unwanted fridge smells and moisture loss from the cakes. Although they are some cakes that can last in room temperature, depending on the type of cake you have for leftover, the safest way is to keep them refrigerated and sealed properly.
It is not advisable to freeze the cakes because some cakes such as cream cheese will end up with a different texture. Besides, with our cakes so tasty, there is no need to keep in for weeks. Unless of course it is a wedding cake whereby there are some traditions that a portion of the cake be consumed a year later (anniversary).
