Hey guys! Surabaya Snow Cake
Probably almost a month ago, I got invited to a gathering event by the lovely Indonesian artist couple : Zaskia Sungkar and Irwansyah. They were both there to introduce to us something that they have been working on for a while, it’s a cake, and they wanted it to be the signature cake from Surabaya after it launched. At that gathering event, we got the privilege to be the first ones to try it and to give feedback. Now, they have finally opened the store, and I want to share with all of you about this unique cake and where to get them!
Surabaya Snow Cake
Surabaya Snow Cake Store is located in the center of Surabaya, a little bit to the east area. It is on Flores Street, near Old Wood Bistro & Bar. The store is actually the exact same place where they held their gathering a while back in December, but at that time we were spotted outside the store. So now, after they launched, we can finally see what the store looks like on the inside.
The store has a wide front terrace; they have a huge banner of Zaskia Sungkar along the sidewall on the left, they still have the photo booth from the gathering last month, they have a bunch of chairs for people to sit when they queue up, they even have a Musholla on the right. At that time when I came, there were quite a lot of people in the queue, and there was a security in front of the door of the store, as well as a spoke person who came to me and informed me that they are running out of stock already!
I was peeking at the inside of the store and it was the total opposite of the front terrace. It is literally just a small space with one cashier and one person who helps her serve the customers. If you’re a person who doesn’t like to wait around, I would suggest you just use Go-Jek service to get them instead 🙂
So what is Surabaya Snow Cake?
Surabaya Snow Cake is a three-layered cake inspired by the famous Spikoe Surabaya. But instead of using all three layers with sponge cake, they take it to the next level by replacing the top and the bottom layer with a puff pastry. Not only that, they also add toppings and flavors to give you more choices to pick!
Speaking of toppings and flavors, Surabaya Snow Cake has five of them, which are Vanilla/Original (55k), Cheese (59k), Caramel (55k), Chocolate Green Tea (59k), and Chocolate Banana (55k). People’s favourite is definitely varied, depending on personal preferences. I haven’t tried the Chocolate Green Tea and Chocolate Banana, but both of them are my friend’s favorite (Vicky Yuwono).
Of the three flavors that I had tried, I would say my favorite is the cheese because it has all the flavor from the saltiness of the cheese, the crunchy puff pastries, the cream, and also the sweetness of the sponge cake. If you love plain sweet cake, you can definitely go with the vanilla. And you should also try the Caramel, the runner-up of my personal choice. I always love how caramel taste, and it’s projected strongly in this cake as they put the caramel sauce in between all the layers, so if you’re a caramel lover, go for this one! You won’t regret it.
Overall, I would say I love Surabaya Snow Cake!
It’s new, it’s unique, and it tastes good! I honestly think that it’s a great move from Zaskia Sungkar & Irwansyah to contribute something new to this culinary industry that demands constant creativity. They totally nailed it and I was really impressed with how it turned out. I definitely would recommend you guys to go and give this cake a try, let me know which one is your favorite in the comment section below, okay!
I hope you guys enjoyed the blog post as much as I do, and don’t forget to share it with your friends who would love to eat this kind of cake too! I love you guys so much and I’ll see you guys in my next post very berry soon! xoxo
