Innovative bakers, chasing consistency in quality: Wheat & Co equals wheat plus different companions - the most basic theory for baking.

Wheat & Co sources all-natural ingredients for all its bakes to provide the most authentic flavours and forms. In the past four years, Wheat & Co has constantly moved homes and changed kitchens, seeking the best spot to make its beautiful bakes.

When they first began their business in 2020, Wheat & Co's husband-and-wife founders realised their limited space and equipment marred them from maintaining top-tier results.

Last September, they relocated to their present base in Taman Connaught, with a kitchen that's three times larger than their original one, complete with hot and cold sections. This ensures they can now store every ingredient at its prime, ensuring steadfast precision and reliability.

Wheat & Co was launched by Vincent as its sole baker, with his wife handling the heaps of paperwork.

For 11 previous years, Vincent sharpened his skills internationally, from France to Singapore and the United States, sometimes as a hot kitchen chef, other times as a pastry perfectionist. 

Vincent is inspired by how American chefs approach desserts, experimenting excitingly with flavours and forms.

Wheat & Co has since evolved into a four-person team, working with a bounty of natural ingredients for cakes, tarts and other tempting treats.

Check out the signature Pandan Layer Cake (painstakingly handmade with 10 layers, influenced by Vincent's mother's personal recipe), plus the Mother’s Day Dessert Set, available through May, featuring a fantastic foursome that put a Taiwanese tea twist on almond tarts and a pistachio praline spin on Paris-Brest.

Fans of light Malaysian-inflected cakes will love Wheat & Co’s flagship Pandan Layer Cake (RM85 for 7-inch, RM110 for 8-inch). 

This cake is close to Vincent's heart - he grew up on his mother's rendition. She baked pandan layer cakes in her own style, adding agar-agar in the cake.

Vincent has fine-tuned this family recipe, harnessing handmade ingredients - each cake takes at least 6 hours to prepare, comprising 10 layers in total.

Delicately aromatic, gently infused with genuine pandan in every element - stripes of pandan agar-agar are homemade with pandan and santan, layered with pandan chiffon cake, coated in Wheat & Co's own pandan custard. An exceptional cake that everybody can enjoy.

Other popular cakes include the Fresh Cream Mango Cake, Guanaja 70% Dark Chocolate Cake, and Burnt Cheesecake.

Wheat & Co also showcases seasonal selections for special occasions.

The Mother’s Day Dessert Set (RM92) can be ordered throughout May - it comprises four one-of-a-kind creations, best consumed one by one in Wheat & Co's recommended order. A memorable alternative to conventional Mother's Day cakes!

Start with the zesty Daisy. This tantalising tart blossoms brightly with almond sponge that's tinged with Taiwanese red tea, topped with yellow guava-and-pear compote, encircled with mascarpone cheese beneath a film of osmanthus jelly. It’s complex with clean notes of nuts, fruits and flowers, awakening the palate with its uplifting fragrance.

Next, Vert: A chunky cube covered with green tea white chocolate, concealing separate sections of mouthwateringly moist Japanese Morihan Uji matcha joconde, cream cheese and raspberry ganache - a joyous journey of flavours and textures from one bite to another.

The Mango Pista is a colourful, playful pleasure, a vibrant version of Paris-Brest: Choux pastry thickly sandwiched with a green-and-yellow parade of pistachio praline and mango curd, cleansing the palate with its elegant nuttiness and nectarous sweetness.

Finish with slow-baked Lemon Cheesecake, zingy and savoury all at once, dense but not cloying, bubbling up with basil-lime 'caviar' for a buoyant balance of citrusy herbaceousness, set on a crumbly crust of an almond cookie base. Absolutely not our average cheesecake.

Stay tuned to Wheat & Co for more seasonal surprises this year - in the near future, its founders hope to move to an even larger kitchen!
