Their primary products are Swiss rolls, they have a huge assortment of flavours for these. They also make cakes-to-order.

Plenty of flavours to choose from coffee,cempedak,chocolate.....good for snacks and gifts. They also sell home made cakes. Keep cool in a cooler bag and best to eat it fresh.

JJ Cakes and Swiss Rolls started in a small way in a small shop, and gradually moved on to bigger premises when it was proven that their Swiss rolls were better than almost any others available in Ipoh.

Many locals also order them for celebration days such as babies' full moon day or as gifts for grand openings.

If you intend to buy the swiss rolls, get those with fresh cream. And if possible, get some cooler bag/container to keep them fresh.

They are famous for their Swiss rolls. The Swiss rolls are freshly baked and there are minimal to none in terms of the quantities of food preservatives. They have a huge range of flavors. You should give it a try!
