Juchheim Jewellery Baum & Manekineko Baum

Saturday, July 14, 2018
Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last touched this space. I guess everyone's kind of moved on to other platforms and I'm a little out of touch on how to start a blog post hahaha. So please, bear with me if my sentences seem a little short, like Instagram captions.

Juchheim invited a few of us bloggers down to their Takashimaya outlet (at the Food Hall, where the Japanese food are) last weekend to preview their newly launched Jewellery Baum and Manekineko Baum - and we got to leave with some sweet treats to share with our friends and families!

I'm not gonna lie, I am not a huge fan of sweets and cakes. Never really had a sweet tooth from when I was younger - so I brought the boyfriend along to try out the cakes as well so that I can give a more comprehensive review on it!

The first thing that caught my eye when I reached the counter was how pretty these cakes are. The new Jewellery Baum really lives up to it's name. It was almost like shopping at a jewellery store, where everything is displayed behind the glass display - and it was sparkling like a piece of jewellery would.

The Jewellery Baum comes in 5 different flavours - Berries, Orange, Mango, Matcha, and Coffee. My personal favourite is Mango and Berries since I really like fruity flavours. They were a little sweet for me, but everyone else thought that they were alright, so it was probably just my lack of a sweet tooth. However, I think these cakes would go very well with tea, so it's a good item to get for gatherings with your girlfriends!

Besides how sweet I felt it was, I actually really enjoyed the Jewellery Baum. The cake surrounding the jelly is nice and soft, but the jelly provides an interesting contrast in textures and flavours. The boyfriend also approves! Look at how happy he is eating the sweets.

Along with the Jewellery Baum, Juchheim has also launched their Manekineko Baum. For those of you who are familiar with Manekineko, you'd know that it is a prosperity cat.

The Manekineko Baum is specially made to have 8 layers as it is a symbol of prosperity in Chinese! It is made of the same batter as their original (and best selling) Baumkuchen, and tastes just as good. The cake is slightly dense but very fragrant. If you enjoy kueh lapis, you'd find that this is like a lighter (and less oily) version of it!

Enough of me rambling about how good the cakes are, I think the best way for you guys to find out is to head down to their counter to find out. They provide free samples (and rather generous portions) so you can try out which is to your liking before purchasing!

Juchheim is located at 391 Orchard Road Singapore 238873, Takashimaya Food Hall.
Jewellery Baum retails for $3 a piece; Manekineko Baum retails for $23.80.
