Well I usually write food-related stuff in my food blog – Zestful Eats – but I wanted to talk about this contest I won in July (slowpoke yes I know) that has something to do with one of my favourite desserts – cakes!
If you’re living in KL and have not heard of Just Heavenly, where have you been? Just Heavenly, started off as home based business (I think) and now has several outlets called “A Slice of Heaven” where you can purchase yummy cakes and desserts without having to make an order (and waiting).
Though I’ve heard of them and have eaten cakes from them bought by other people, I’ve never been to their stores. I did however started following them on twitter @heavenlycake, though in the beginning I didn’t realize the twitter handle and the company were related (I didn’t read the bio, its stated there apparently), because they talked about baking and stuff.
Soon after, I found out that they had a contest in July where all you needed to do was to answer some simple questions for a chance too win RM50 vouchers! They were promoting their cake of the month – Apricot cheesecake (pictured above). Looks yummy doesn’t it? So I decided to participate.
And I won! There was some mistake in the beginning with my voucher so I had the whole month of August (instead of July) to collect the cake which is perfect because Mom’s birthday is on 28 August and one of her favourite cakes is the durian chocolate cake. I remembered a cousin bought it for us about a year ago. Just Heavenly’s version is made of thick puree/mash of flavourful durian covered in (dark?) chocolate ganache – really nice.
They don’t have a big version of the Durian chocolate cake so I decided to take a number of mini/individual cakes instead – 3x Durian Chocolate cake, 1x Death by Chocolate and 1x Apricot Cheesecake (July Cake of the month). I was also given two more cupcakes so I choose the Peanut butter chocolate (Sept Cake of the month) and a coffee something cupcake. I am obviously quite the chocolate fan, based on my selections above. haha.
The Durian choc were as superb as ever. The Death by Chocolate is filled with rich chocolate mousse that is to-die-for, hence the name I guess. I thought the Apricot cheese cake had a bit too much of the apricot topping and felt tasted too sweet. I’m not a particularly huge fan of cupcakes with a lot of frosting but the two I chose were quite nice.
So how do you get more information about these cakes (or be updated about the next contest)? Check out their website www.asliceofheaven.my or follow @heavenlycake on Twitter! You can also check out their outlet in Jaya One, Pavilion or Bangsar Shopping Centre.
Enjoy your desserts!
