delicious cake shop @ lane cove

Those who know me well would know that my major weakness is cake. I love pretty cakes and moreso, I love eating pretty cakes. This weekend, my aunty took me to a cake shop she discovered whilst in the Lane Cove area. She gave me a week's notice that we were going, in which time I perused their website to check what cakes they had and to decide what cakes I would be getting (For those interested, visit Again, those who know me well would know that I'm highly indecisive. When it comes to cakes in particular, I end up getting a piece of everything all because I can't decide. So anyways, that's just a bit about me.
Back to the cake shop, called 'Delicious Cake Shop' claims to be Japanese. It's not really Japanese (as much as their cakes strive to look like those Japanese cakes), you'll find that the people working there are Chinese looking, and then when you look closely at the packaging, you'll discover that you're in a Taiwanese bakery. Honestly, I think the Taiwanese do an awesome job with their cakes (for e.g. Savoy is one of those places I constantly go back to) and definitely, this little place in Lane Cove will become another one of those ones which I'll visit when I can.
So it was with great difficulty that I settled on 7 slices of cake plus some cookies and friands. The cake slices included: Black Forest, White Forest, Chocolate Lover, German Cheesecake, Oreo Cheesecake, Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake, and Blueberry Pie. I'm a big cheesecake lover and settled for all their cheesecake slices. They actually have a wide selection of mousse cakes on offer if mousse is your cup of tea. As for my aunt, she bought a full chestnut cake and a coffee roll.
On the whole, expect some intense flavours. Can't say I'm 100% happy with all the cakes but they've definitely done a good job with the cheesecake slices! Presentation is superb and whilst not actually 'Japanese', they've still won me over in their own ways. Will go back soon to order their hamburger cake. Check it out on their website!!
