I took home their Spiku Canary Cake in two different sizes : small (18 cm x 18 cm) IDR 75.000 and big (24 cm x 24 cm) IDR 140.000, which also happened to be their only type, size, and price for the regular days. I get to try, test, and analyze these Spiku Cake to my preference, and of course to share every little detail with you guys in this blog post. So here’s what I found :
4. No preservatives and chemical
All of the ingredients that are used to make Santi’s Spiku Cake is 100% natural ingredients, no wonder the taste is very rich, yet still keeps you wanting more and more. They are also not using any chemical to make the cake looks big and puffy, you can see it from the top of the cake that’s a bit lower because of the pressure from roasted walnuts. Last but not least, they are not using any preservatives for the cake to stay longer to be consumable.
That’s why you don’t see Santi’s Spiku Cake stood in the Supermarket other than their store or their branch, it’s because they are really making sure that their Spiku Cake still in a fresh condition (not more than 24 hours) when you buy it. PS : If they have Spiku Cake that isn’t sold that day at the store, they would give it to the orphanage house right away on that day. A win-win solution for every side, right? 🙂
The Spiku itself can stay well for five up to seven days in a room temperature and could be longer in the refrigerator. I even found the Spiku taste better after four days, no kidding, it became softer and moist, just how I like it. I usually never put it in the fridge to keep it longer, because I could eat the whole cake in just one sitting, LOL. But if you want to put it in the fridge, the tips will be : cut the Spiku in portions before you put it in the fridge, so if you want to eat it, you can just grab it without having to take the whole cake out of the fridge. Because the temperature of the Spiku has to be stable to keep it nice and enjoyable 🙂
My personal thought :
To me, Santi’s Spiku Cake really delicious! It’s soft and moist (eat it on the third or the fourth day to get it softer and moister), very addictive, it’s great for breakfast, tea time, snacking, serving it to your guest in the house is always a good idea too. Not only that, you can send it to your colleagues, clients, workmate on a special occasion, it has a very timeless taste that I’m sure everyone at any age would love eating.
I was thinking, though maybe Spiku Cakes in general doesn’t have the appearance like the other pretty cakes around, they are definitely winning in terms of taste, price & simplicity. Think about it, with less than IDR 150.000 (for big size), you can give someone a cake that they would unquestionably love eating. They don’t need to spare a huge space on their refrigerator to keep the cake consumable and it’s such a worry-free feeling when you deliver the cake, Santi’s Spiku Cake packed neatly, it won’t be ruined though the road might be shaky, and it won’t meltdown in the middle of Surabaya’s heat as well. 100!
If I could contribute to the success of Santi’s Spiku Cake, I would say all they need is only a wide range of fancy packaging for many occasions that people would probably have. They actually already have special packaging and cards for a special delivery, but if they could widen them into more specific occasions, I’m sure it will become a great improvement for the business. Well, that’s just my two cents for Santi’s Spiku Cake, if you already win the taste, the price, and the simplicity, why not improving the appearance and have it all right? 🙂
