It's such a pity that the cake was a tad dry. I'm not a big fan of old-school buttercream either, especially in this case where it was rather grainy on some parts (either because of dessicated coconut or sugar— I'm not sure). The gula melaka was fragrant as expected, but the dish is nothing mindblowing as a whole. Perhaps it's tailored more towards the our parents' tastebuds as the theme suggests.
