Craving for the durian and cakes? Kill two birds with one stone with the best durian cakes available for delivery in KL and PJ today.

The king of fruits but a thorn in someone else’s flesh all because of its pungent whiffs. You know when the fruit is in season because its intoxicating, nectarous, egg custard-like aroma latches onto the air and travels for miles. 

You might disagree, but we reckon durian cakes are the bomb. It contains every bit that makes the durian so deservedly crowned the king of fruits, but none of the drawbacks like having to pry open the husk, the potential laceration its thorns might inflict, and when married to the cake, it somehow becomes even creamier, fluffier and smoother. It just melts in the mouth.

With travel restrictions are in place, getting to the bakery might risk a fine greater than the price of a freshly made durian cake. So why not sit back, relax and have it delivered to your home? We reckon these are some of the best in town.

Made from the wagyu of durian, the Musang King, this cake is built upon a dense foundation of cheese and airy durian sponges, and crowned by bits of the fleshy fruit. Rich, aromatic and creamy, what’s not to love about this no-baked cheesecake? At 850g, it is good enough for 10 slices.

Before there was the Musang King, D24 with its firm, thick, bright yellow flesh reigned supreme. The interpretation pictured here combines layered pulps, lathered with whipped cream upon a vanilla sponge cake. Best of all? It comes in 1kg to feed a small family or 1.6kg for a small family with bigger appetite.

There are ways to dissect a mille crepe: cutting through vertically with your teeth and letting it break apart in the cavern or methodically picking it layer by layer. Expertly transformed into a delicate crepe, this work of art is generously filled with fresh D24 flesh and further infused with cream to ensure the cake is never too sweet and retains all the bittersweet flavour of the durian varietal. When the whole cake is too much for you, you can have just a slice.

The Musang King is the raison d’être. Dense layers of durian flesh, laced with thin layers of sponges, cream and – just as equally tantalising – macarons. It melts in the mouth with every bite and more importantly, the essence of the Musang King is flawlessly preserved.

Even one of the world’s most luxurious hotels can’t resist the temptation of the durian. Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur’s interpretation harnesses trompe-l’œil of which the durian cheese cake resembles the fruit. Though having the durian is an indulgence in itself, this version is just extra indulgent and it tastes as heavenly as it looks.
