Ritz Pastry, Fettes Park, Penang

I wonder why I haven’t heard of this cakeshop before? I guess I must go out more often and explore. Anyway, Ritz is a cakeshop located along the rows of new shophouses near No Eye Deer/7-Eleven in Fettes Park. The shop is rather low profile with no flashing neon lights or gaudy fake cakes.

They have a nice range of cakes with fancy names. So far, I have been there only twice and never really try all of them. However, from what I get so far, I must say that their cakes are pretty good compared to the cheaper cakeshops and even better than Secret Recipe. They don’t have those sickening whipped cream that normally most cake shops love to use. Have you notice that some cake shops use more whipped cream than their cake and the percentage is like 60% oily, fattening cream and 40% air and sponge? My opinion is – If I am going to get fat on cakes, I might as well get fat on good cakes that cost me more. 😛

(choux pastry)

The choux pastry which my four years old love. He popped and finished two before I even notice. The cream inside the choux pastry is made fresh.

I have forgotten the name of the above cake but it has some Spanish sounding name. The top has a layer of burnt caramel and the cake is filled with nuts and cream.

Overall, the prices of the cakes from Ritz is more expensive than your regular cake shops but slightly cheaper than those coffee and cakes joint.

    My sister loves to put the choux puffs into freezer… she said tastes like ice cream… 🙂 Oh they used real cream not the ‘shaving foam ‘ type… LOL. Compared to other bakeries… Ritz may sounded expensive but for the quality I rather have Ritz Pastries anytime. I think we can only compare btwn Ritz and Bakerzin 😛 When they first operated the shop, they used to have my favourite dacquoise… 🙁 Also, I like their cheese cake range… try the soft & light cheese cake 🙂 if they still making it (move over Sunflower!.) They reduced few types of cake due to shorthanded and I missed their coffee counter too.
