Batam - Diana Layer Cake!

This was the Kueh Lapis Cake (Thousand Layer Cake) Home Factory we were brought to. Into a quiet neighbourhood where strong whiff of cake baking greeted us - leading us to the little house itself.


Lapis Cake just hot from the oven! See how beautifully it rises! And after taking the limited tasting samples, you couldn't resist not placing an order for at least 1 of them!

Kueh Lapis Cake (Plain -S$23, Prunes -S$27)

Weight about 1.2kg each. We bought both flavors; and we LOVE the Prune one!

Our family & friends love your cake! They tried getting 1 from Batam Shopping Mall but it tasted very different from yours.

Now we know, not all Lapis cake from Batam is good ;)

Hi, Angela. We visited you and tried to buy but were told the cake was only available to advance order customers, not walk in. How do we buy then? Do you accept individual phone order?

Hi Beary,

I am interested to buy this kueh lapis cake, as this is my first time to batam do you know how can I get to buy it from this cake shop ??

Hi Eileen, we understand they only accept orders from the tour guide :( The last time, we joined the 1 Day Batam tour to purchase.

And so far, they are still the best compared to the many others we bought from the Batam supermarket bakery stalls.

Hi Beary,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I will be going with on a one day guided city tour also, so I think i ask the guide to contact Diana Layer cake shop ^^*. By the way do you know the city tour will end approx around what time (Singapore time) ? Becos I'm planning for a short spa treatment.

thks & rgds,
Eileen

Hi Beary,

Ps I forgot to ask then how you received your cake ? How do we pay them upon reservation via the local tour guide ?

thks,
Eileen

Beary said...

Can't remember, think it's about 6pm we arrive at the ferry terminal. Let the tour guide know of your Spa visit, he can advise or even recommend.

Received our cakes that were delivered to the coach near the end of the day. Paid upon reservation? Can't remember but Batam tour guides are fairly professional, no worries. Hve a good trip :)

Hi Beary,

Can I check with you do you pay for the cake with SGD dollars or rupiah ?

Beary said...

We pay in SGD$. It's common to accept SGD in Batam.

Hi... Tried to place an order with them but none understand English and there wasn't any English speaking person around... What other modes of ordering available? Online can order?

They don't handle direct sales. All sales done were through the middleman where in my case, was our Batam tour guide, no other choice.

Hi, i just came back from holiday trip from batam. I've tried Diana kueh lapis by your recommend. I'm quite disappointed taste is not as tasty as expected. I bought 2 different brand to compare and Diana kueh lapis is more oily and not as fragrant.

Beary said...

Which other brand? And where to get it? Thank you.

I read this blog about Diana Layer Cake and I purposely get a cab to go down with hubby to buy. Diana Layer Cake wasn't that tasty at all in fact I brought 2 diff brand one is tour guide recommend brand name royal and all my relatives tried both and none like Diana Layer.. In fact Diana compare with Sg bengawan solo is abt the same. Perhaps the next time u can try royal brand to compare.

You can purchase Diana cake directly. You can speak to Angel in English. I have tried Royal and I must say the cake is too dry and the worst I have ever tasted. I have recommended to many of my friends and they just love DIana cake.
