Divine Simple Cakes, freshly baked...a rarity today.

I'm writing this review for LANA Cake Shop because the last review here is dated 2009. I have enjoyed LANA Cakes for many years and I love the energy and spirit of the owner, Violet.

Ambience/Setting: Original. Nostalgic. Unpretentious.

Food/Beverage: No points for guessing how much I love her cakes! The Best Choc Cake EVER. Moist and Tender. FRESHLY baked! Light Choc Coating. Does not leave you feeling like you've been punched in the face with a bar of Choc.

Value: Nothing comes close to her cakes, and I can afford it. So GOOD VALUE! ;)

Service: From Ordering to Collection, I've never had any problems. I am clear on the lead time and also am punctual when collecting. The ladies behind the counter have always been professional. I do not expect Above and Beyond Service here as it's a Cake Shop.

Worst chocolate cake ever

I got to agree with Donald Tan, the earlier reviewer of this Lana cake who said there was too much gelatine in the chocolate topping. I am in no way related to him nor Lana 's business rival.

My husband bought this cake for me after much rave from his colleagues. He had to place an order on the phone and collect it from the shop which he told me was very run down. That wasn't much of an issue if the cake tasted good.

But it tasted horrible. The cake topping tasted more like chocolate jelly than real chocolate. I cannot find a solid chocolate feel to its taste. It was like eating the chocolate version of those gelatine pandan cake you can get cheaply from Bengawan solo.

Maybe everyone taste is different. But for the price of 39 sgd for 800 g of chocolate fudge cake, you got to be kidding me! I rather pay $12 for a chocolate mud pie at some decent restaurant.

Gelatine in the Chocolate cake

I notice that the choc cake is much softer then the ones at the cafés elsewhere. Taste good but a little too much gelatine in the chocolate coating which makes it somewhat 'unnatural'....
