Sun Guang Bakery in Malden

I think this is the bakery I am thinkg about. Went to a party last night, and there was a cake from an Asian bakery on Main Street in Malden, and this is the only one I could find on line. The cake was wonderful. It was a two layer white cake , with a whipped cream frosting, and was decorated with fresh fruit. The cake was moist, and was not too sweet. And it was so pretty with the fruit decorations ( fruit between the layers, too). Just looking to see if anyone has tried it, and what else they may offer. Cant find any info or menus on line. TIA

  1. I used to go quasi-regularly in the morning and have posted about their offerings before. Savory selection is limited to baked buns: bbq pork, ground beef, bacon & scalion, and hot dog. I think they are still 75c and served from a warming oven. The beef (not much seasoning beyond s&p, broth, and can be soggy) and bacon/scallion I prefer, but its a toss-up. Glaze makes all of them sweet. No weekday specials ever, haven't noticed weekend either. Its cheaper and fresher than Converse or DD. Passed a bit on sweet stuff since I went mornings, but what I have had (and I beliene Fuloon gives out sweets from there based on appearance) its pretty comp to Chinatown but with not quite as much selection but still good for the size.

      Thanks. Will dig out your posts- could't find them with a quick search. The cake was really good- my SIL called is a "grown up cake" as it was not as sweet as a traditional bakery cake- but the kids wolfed it soen, too. Such a pretty cake,too! Will have to check it out.

        I have a friend that lives in Malden and have had that cake a number of times. It is really great, so light. It doesn't seem Chinese at all, but I'm guessing it is come type of Chinese-American concoction as it is available in Chinatown, too.

        1. re: pemma

          It's standard Chinese take on Western cakes. Chinese palettes usually do not favor overly sweet items, so cakes are usually much lighter in taste and none of that sugar-overdosing frosting. If you walk into bakeries in Hong Kong or Taiwan, it's the same deal.

            I am not a big dessert lover, and I did not know this- but I think this will be my go to place for cakes, as you are right, there was no overdosing on sugar.
