At 4ft(h) by 4ft(w) and weighing 40kg, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (the Centre) ‘Tanah Tumpah Darahku’ features the Coat of Arms of Malaysia’s 14 states and territories, intricate handcrafted domes and individually-carved sugar motifs of Indian drums, ‘wau’ (kites), lanterns and shields to denote a multicultural society…a truly majestic sweet confection befitting the celebration of His Majesty, Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah.
Enthused Executive Pastry Chef, Jamaluddin Zainal Abidin, “creating a cake for His Majesty is always a privilege, and a challenge to my team and me to try and outdo our
previous years’ efforts.”
Made up of four separate compartments of black forest (chocolate and cherries) mini-
cakes, black forest crinkle cookies, black forest cupcakes and black forest pralines, all
sprinkled with edible gold dust, Jamaluddin shared the ‘black forest’ delight was two
months in the making and took two weeks to assemble.
“We pride ourselves on our innovative culinary creations so we always start brainstorming concepts and themes well in advance of the occasion, to ensure the delivery of a cake that is unique, delicious and most important of all, fit for a king.”
Joining Jamaluddin at the cake presentation ceremony held at Istana Negara in conjunction with His Majesty’s official birthday celebration on 6 June were the Centre’s
General Manager, Alan Pryor; Director of Human Resource, Rohizat Baharum; Executive
Sous Chef, Hisham Jaafar; and Communications Manager, Kuzaimah Idris.
