Wheat Baumkuchen @ Toa Payoh Central

Quite sometime back I went back to Wheat Baumkuchen with a few friends. Actually wanted to introduce them to the Cool Noodles here after we were all too full after a food tasting session. We ended up having tea and cakes. If you are interested to read about the Cool Noodles, you can read my review here.

The core business of  Wheat Baumkuchen is still their Baumkuchens. Baumkuchen is a type of layered cake origin from Germany. It is literally translated as "tree cake" because of the rings formed from the different layers of the cake. Baumkuchen was later introduced in Japan and became popular.

For the plain Baumkuchens, we shared the Green Tea and Classic Original flavours. Actually Baumkuchen resembles Kueh Lapis. another type of layered cake that is popular in South East Asia. However Baumkuchen has a firmer texture and at least at Wheat Baumkuchen there are different flavours to cater for different palates.

Classic Original Baumkuchen 4/5

I thought it was very innovative and creative of Wheat Baumkuchen to transform the traditional Baumkuchen into a modern delicacy with different toppings like similar to the cupcakes. These injection of modern elements into a traditional snack definitely will help to capture the taste buds of the new generations.
