Kuching Delivery Service
We are aware of the worry you would have about pastry delivery, that is receiving the cake without damage. We collaborated with a professional dispatch service company that has a decade of experience in their profession. Desserts especially cakes are fragile and tricky to handle. Unlike any “tapao” in a plastic, cakes cannot be delivered on a bike. Therefore, all cake deliveries are via vehicles, protected from the sun, the rain and any smudging from the lack of space to place and hold a cake on a bike.
Coincidentally, if you are around the area, you can also opt for local pick up from the vendors. You can check where their location is before deciding if you need delivery services or can pick it up yourself.
