Awarded 2019’s top ten gift boxes, Obama Cake’s main shop is located beside the bike trail on Kaifeng Street in Taitung City. The top three best-sellers in the store are the “handan cake”, “red quinoa cake”, and “Russian bread.” The handan cakes were created by the owner because he wanted to make something that could represent Taitung well. He combined the local’s favorite bean paste, millet mochi, and red quinoa, with Taitung’s unique cultural event “bombing handan” to make this product.
The red quinoa cake uses Taitung’s ruby, red quinoa, along with dried fruits and nuts to create a chewy and fragrant snack! There are eight different flavors to choose from, original, peanut, taro, cashew, green mango, red guava, strawberry, and salted egg yolk. The cakes are sliced thinly and packaged individually for easy storage and consumption! The Russian bread is made with fresh milk from the Chulu Ranch. The bread has a crispy crust and a soft fluffy interior. It is a salty and milky delicacy. There are many other gift sets made with locally sourced ingredients to pick from. You’ll have a fun shopping spree at this bakery.
