Which holiday cakes to buy this Idul Fitri?
The glorious day of Idul Fitri is soon approaching and the celebration would not be complete without special cakes. Although Idul Fitri is identified with cookies such as kaastengel and nastar, it would be nice to add some more sweetness to your home by serving cakes from shops recommended by five Jakarta-based food bloggers. Tarte bourdalouecake from Passionnée Bread & Pastry, Jakarta Mullie Marlina, a food blogger who manages myfunfoodiary.com, recommends tarte bourdalouecake made by Passionnée Bread & Pastry Jakarta. Tarte bourdaloue is a simple pear tart, which is known to be Passionnée's bestselling tart. “It has a crunchy pastry crust with a moistly cooked almond cream perfectly blended between the poached pears. It's the best classic French pear tart I've ever had so far,” Mullie said. This small bread and pastry shop is strategically located on Jl. Brawijaya, South Jakarta, and has beautiful flowery decorations. Specializing in classic French bread and pastries, Passionée also sells various other French delicacies, such as baguette Parisienne, tarte aux pommes and canelé. Matcha Goma Cake from the Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop The Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop at Mandarin Oriental Hotel Jakarta is already well known for its quality products and has one of the best cronuts in Jakarta. Verdi Danutirto, a food blogger behind “The Hungry Doctor” food blog, recommends the cakes from the Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop. Verdi said, “The sweetness of the cakes here isn't overpowering. The cream is also nice and I believe the cake shop also has special cakes specially made for this Ramadhan month.” Verdi recommends its matcha goma cake and Piemonte hazelnut cake to please any sweet tooth. Cake prices range from Rp 300,000 up to Rp 600,000 for a whole cake. Fruit tart from Torta Dolce Cake Shop Having the objective to let its customers enjoy the comfort of homemade cakes with family and friends, Torta Dolce Cake Shop serves cakes made with the best quality ingredients with no preservatives. They are not overly sweet. Angelina Yuliana, who writes regularly on her blog “Food Liberator”, recommends Torta Dolce's fruit tart. It is a sweet tart topped with almond cream, fresh kiwis, strawberries and a peach slice. The tarts are also available with a single fruit of your choice, such as strawberry, mango or blueberry. Other delicious cakes you can order from Torta Dolce include stella banana Valrhona crunch, cheese cake, rich chocolate cake, macaroons, cupcakes and cronuts. Cake prices range from Rp 200,000 up to Rp 400,000. It is highly recommended to pre-order a cake by phone at least two days in advance so the baker can freshly bake and personally make the cake just for you. Cupcakes from Guilty Pleasures Cake Shop Soya Yanagawa, who blogs regularly in “Soya vs Food”, recommends cakes from the Guilty Pleasures cake shop. Guilty Pleasures is an online cake shop that produces various delicious cakes, cupcakes and brownies. All cakes from Guilty Pleasures are homemade and created without using any preservatives. Soya said that his best recommendations for baked goods from Guilty Pleasures are its cupcakes and jar cakes. “They are so cute, delicious and very handy,” he said. Aside from its cupcakes and jar cakes, Guilty Pleasures also sells full round cakes ranging from red velvet cake and rainbow cake to cheesecake and chocolate pirouette cake.

Danish Fruit Pastry 80G from Kempi Deli Jakarta This bakery and cake shop managed by Kempinski Jakarta is located at the Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, East Mall GF, right next to Paulaner Brauhaus. Cindy Lulaby, behind the “Lulaby Spoon” blog, picks Kempi Deli to sweeten your Lebaran holiday experience. She especially recommends the Danish fruit pastry 80G and the pistachio cake. She defined the Danish fruit pastry 80G as classic. “It's a classic Danish pastry slightly modified to fit today's pop culture with strawberry and fresh cream on top of it,” Cindy explained. It has a well-balanced sweetness and the strawberries don't taste too sour. As for the pistachio cake, Cindy said it is a sweet vanilla sponge cake with a rich pistachio nut flavor and cream. Other than selling cakes, Kempi Deli also serves fresh bread, cold cuts and sausage specialties.
