Hokkaido Cupcakes


Hokkaido cupcakes are made with milk from Hokkaido, hence the namesake. These small chiffon cakes that are so soft they're creased and slightly collapsed after they cool down.

Ogura cake, aka 相思蛋糕, hails from Batu Pahat, Malaysia. "Ogura" is a Japanese surname; "相思" means lovesick. Is there a love story behind the cake? Nah, there isn't. Some baker in Batu Pahat just invented the name.
