Eye-catching cake with its lychee mousse, rose sponge, lychee bits, and topping of lychee popping boba. The lychee and rose aromas were balanced well to make for a light and enjoyable flavour. Loved the texture contrast of the stringy dried lychee and popping pearls. However, did find the moist and fluffy rose sponge to be on the sweeter rather than floral end. The lightness of this cake also made it more forgettable but would still recommend this to those with light palettes or fans of lychee-rose combinations.

Having tried the original @blackstarpastry and a few other variations, theirs unfortunately fell short. We found the balance off with the refreshing and moist watermelon overpowering the thin crisp almond dacquoise (could be thicker & richer) and the light rose chantilly cream (wished for this to be more floral). Did enjoy the toppings of strawberry, grapes, blueberries that provided sweet-sour tartness. However, the thick watermelon slab and chunky fruits were too distinct such that it felt more like watermelon and fruits with cream rather than an integrated watermelon-strawberry cake. Also wished for the extra nuttiness and crunch from pistachios that the original version offers.

Made famous by Aussie Black Star Pastry. The dainty entremet consist of sliced watermelon sandwiched between layers of rose chantilly cream and nutty almond dacquoise. Topped with strawberries and grapes. While the flavour is light, I wish they had been more innovative to compare up something of their own.

Such a sweet name for this entremet. Lychee mousse and rose sponge, it consist of small lychee bits and topped with lychee popping boba. Definitely a “very feminine flavoured” cake.

Ending Sunday on a sweet note with Kaiser from LA VIE, a new minimalist cafe along Jalan Besar. Made of mango mousse, passionfruit sponge, mango bits and mango popping boba, the entremet is a combination of tropic flavours though I wish for a stronger sourish taste as this leans towards the sweet side.

Gotten their Ultraviolet ($6) to go along. The iced drink is a mix of sparkling melon oolong tea and butterfly pea gives it a beautiful gradient colour though the latter doesn’t add any flavours
