Pandan cake in/around SF

alag Aug 24, 2008 11:36 AM

I'm looking for a Asian style pandan birthday cake, as that's my mom's absolute favorite cake.

Are there any Chinese, Vietnamese, or other SE Asian bakeries in SF or on the peninsula (or even east bay) that sell this? I know some Filipino bakeries have pandan baked goods, but usually their frosting is too sweet for my mom's tastes.

    It's a Filipino bakeshop, but Goldilocks has a macapuno pandan cake

      Thanks for the suggestion. Goldilocks is actually where we tried pandan cake and my mom thought it was way too sweet.

      Guess I'll keep looking, or maybe try to make my own.
