Mangosteen Cake @ Swich Cafe, Publika

Swich Cafe has opened up a new outlet at Damansara Uptown, PJ. Do drop by and enjoy their famous mangosteen cake, cempedak cake, chocolate cake and more, with a cup of coffee or tea!
Being a person who doesn’t like to taste the same food of same flavour for twice, the girl starts looking for something unique when she gets bored with her usual chocolate cake and cheese cake. She came across Swich Cafe, surprise to find that they have jackfruit cake, ciku cake, mangosteen cake, ann cake and many others unexpected local flavour infused cake! We visited temporarily kiosk of Swich Cafe in Publika last month, hoping to get a taste of the legendary mangosteen cake but sadly, it was seasonal, and not available at the stall.
The staff told us that the cake will be available all day when they open permanent cafe in the end of January. So we follow closely their Facebook, waiting for Swich Cafe new premise to open. Such a great news when they announce that the new white chic outlet in Publika Level G3(Between Babyloft and Wings) is finally opened few days ago, not fully in operation yet but doesn’t matter, as mangosteen cake is available.
Scanning through the cake counter of Swich Cafe, we didn’t see any mangosteen cake, but only a tag written with the ‘mangosteen cake’. Our anticipation dropped, until the friendly staff told us two there was still two slices left.
Priced at RM15 for a small slice of cake, we at first thought that is was pricey, but no more until we knew that the chef  of Swich Cafe actually uses 6 kilograms of mangosteen to make a small size cake. Not yet counting the hardwork of peeling, blending, cooking and extracting the flavours and essence of mangosteen. From there, we started to appreciate that what we were paying was actually lesser than the silent hardwork behind to produce quality, preservative free dessert that puts smile on every customer.
Swich Cafe mangosteen cake came in whitish colour, topped with real juicy mangosteen. Though not as attractive to those done beautifully with colourful dessert arts, the great taste spoke for herself- Light and airy sponge paired with mangosteen filling that promotes a nutty texture and light sourness. Only to know later that there’s pomegranate in it, though we could barely taste it. Hmm…food for thought…as their tag said.
Putting aside the sponge filling, what we like the most about Swich Cafe Mangosteen Cake was the fresh cream frosting that was thickly brushed over the cake. Creamy but not cloying, sweet but not overly, naturally fruity and nothing taste artificial.
We were happy that our wish to taste out Swich’s mangosteen cake was finally granted, and we felt honoured to have a short chat with the owner cum chef, a successful and brilliant woman who is willing to leave her high pay white collar job and chase for her dream, working so hard on her entrepreneurship that according to her, tired but contented when she see smiles on customers who are satisfy with her baking creations.
