I bought a big box of banana cake. The bakery shop using hand cut method to cut the banana cakes for 100 years. The hand cut is very impressive as each piece is evenly sized, well done!

The bakery shop is using traditional wood fired wall oven ‘Century Old Bakery Way’ to bake the banana cakes and other pastries. The outer skin of this banana cakes is lightly charred, and maintain the moist fluffy and tender soft of the cakes. It is really first class handmade, delicious!
