Cake season is just around the corner and having had my fair share of rich, decadent cakes, I was struck by a surge of excitement as I am now inspired to taste test Asian bakeries in search for a different perspective.
First up would be heading to Box Hill where just about every corner of the suburb screams oriental. The bakery's front is roughly the size of a medium sized bedroom and so, can be quite crammed if the site gets filled with customers.
With only a small corner for bread and sweet or savoury buns, the rest of the bakery is used for their cake displays as well as a fridge for cakes that customers have ordered. And just like most Asian establishments, cash is the only method of payment accepted.
