Bakerzin Cakes v Oriels, One Utama

There are many Bakerzin branches scattered around Malaysia, but the two I frequent most regularly:-

Add: G5 Floor Level, Bangsar Village, No. 1, Jalan Telawi Satu Bangsar Baru , KL
Tel: +603 2284 7514

AND,

Add: Branch G-312, Ground Floor Highstreet, One Utama Shopping Centre, No. 1 Lebuh Bandar Utama, PJ
Tel: +603 2284 7514

Cakes at Bakerzin are usually very well presented, taste rather good, and are fresh ...


UPDATE! 12th August 2008
Thanks to some recent feedback; Hmmm, it's true ... I checked out ONE UTAMA recently, and you are right ... BAKERZIN no more!
I did some research, and the following has some very interesting insights and thoughts of what happened ...
Cyberdurian's Website Commentary

Also interesting, from the same blogger ..
"For those who are wondering, Bakerzin has been put on on my Titanic Watch - meaning, it's headed for the iceberg of the Condemn List.
Reasons being that the management has recently decided that they want to start making the cakes in-house rather than bringing in some of the ready-made sponges and ingredients from Singapore, where the Bakerzin franchise originates.
As a result, you basically go to Bakerzin nowadays and your choices are all of about six cakes. From a selection of over 20 cakes, it's now down to about 6. Not only does that suck, but it also means that the cakes get sold out quickly. So late night coffee and ... raids are out as far as Bakerzin goes."

Bakerzin is no longer around. was reading a blog when i was researching on why they left. rumours that the malaysians here got fed up with the poor QC from the singapore company and told them to stuff it...way to go malaysians..we are finally standing up to those cocky singaporeans. tried the new place last night at the 1utama outlet. get this...40% of cakes after 7pm...how cool is that?! tastes good too, i swear its even better than before.
