We were around Dhoby Ghaut looking for a place to chill when we came across Edith Patisserie Cake Bar. They have quite a variety of cake offerings, and they serve waffles too! Here’s what we ordered:

~Biscoff Chocolate Cake ($8)
~Lychee Rose Cake ($8)
~Mixed Berries Waffles w/ Royal Tea Soft Serve ($13.80)

We felt the desserts were pretty decent - the Biscoff Chocolate Cake had that distinct speculoos flavour, while the Lychee Rose Cake had sweet, floral tasting notes. We both felt that the cakes could’ve been more moist though. The Mixed Berries Waffles that came with the Royal Tea Soft Serve went pretty well together - we liked that the ice cream was fragrant and not too sweet.

We checked out Venchi’s newest cafeteria concept at ION Orchard recently. Over here, they have a dessert + coffee menu, as well as a seating area for you to chill and enjoy your treats at.

We were highly recommended to try their gelatoshake, and we got two Gelatoshake Gourmets ($10 each), each with different gelato flavours (Dark Cremino & Tartufato). The gelatoshakes were really rich and smooth, and would make for a very indulgent treat.

They also offer crêpes here, and we got the Crêpes Nougatine ($12), which came with Hazelnut Milk Suprema XV Spread, Nougatine Grains and whipped cream. Taste-wise, it was pretty decent and we liked how balanced it was!

And of course they also serve their regular gelato here as well. Having tried some of their flavours, my favourite ones are Pistachio Verde Di Bronte Dop (Green Pistachio from Bronte) and Stracciatella Di
Fragola (Strawberry & Chocolate Chips).

If you’re a fan of kueh lapis, you might want to check out Mdm Ling Bakery’s latest addition to their menu - Kueh Lapis Legit (‘legit’ here means ‘rich in taste’ in Bahasa Indonesia). These multi-layered cakes are soft, moist, buttery and not too sweet. There are 4 flavours - Signature Original, Pandan, Chocolate & Hawthorn that come encased in a Peranakan-inspired gift box. The Signature Original and Pandan flavours are my favourites! This would certainly be a good gifting option for your loved ones.

The Best of Kueh Lapis Legit (4-piece set) is priced at $78 per box, and for a limited time only, take 10% off and enjoy a special launch price of $70.20. Order now at https://www.mdmlingbakery.com/.

P.S. What you see in my post is just a small portion of each kueh lapis legit; each piece is much bigger and you can check @mdmlingbakery for the actual size.

While the vanilla ice cream wasn’t as creamy as we expected, the taste was still pretty decent for us, and at such an affordable price there is really nothing you can complain about. We loved the cone too, which had a nice crispy texture! I’d definitely get this again if I’m in the area!

Kind Kones sells all-natural vegan ice cream that’s free from dairy, egg, refined sugar, and other artificial additives, and they’ve recently opened their 3rd outlet at I12 Katong. I got to try their ice cream for the first time here!

We ordered 2 scoops of ice cream (Almond Brittle Fudge & Salted Chocolate Chip) with their vegan waffle. Really liked the Almond Brittle Fudge flavour, which was creamy and not too sweet, and had a nice nutty flavour with crunchy brittle bits! The Salted Chocolate Chip was also good with a tasty combination of savoury and sweet. The waffle was light and fluffy and everything combined (with maple syrup & rainbow sprinkles as well) made for a nice indulgent treat overall! Also sampled the Blue Planet flavour, which kinda reminded me of Kueh Salat - pretty interesting!

Their beverage selection only includes drinks with oat / almond / soy milk, and we got the Mocha, Matcha Latte and Hot Chocolate for ourselves!

Tried this without any expectations and they were deliciously exceeded! This is literally like having rock melon on a cone! The taste is legit, while also being refreshing and creamy! This is something I wouldn’t mind getting again!

We were in the CBD area after having dinner and were looking at Burpple Beyond for dessert options where we found Creme & Cone!

Anyway, both flavours of gelato we had were pretty good! The Chocolate Hazelnut was rich without being too overwhelmingly sweet, while the Speculoos Cookies tasted just like lotus biscoff (which is a good thing!), with the cookies being crunchy!

We were at Le Matin Patisserie last weekend, trying their Grand Matin V2 box, a new range of classic pastries (clockwise from top left):

~Berry Danish: Traditional Danish pastry
filled with wild berry jam & native strawberry gum custard, topped with various fresh and semi-dried berries and glazed with a mulberry kombucha. It’s quite tart at the first bite, but subsequently it’s tangy & quite refreshing overall! Rating: 3.6/5

~Cardamon Bun: Traditional Scandinavian Cardamom buns with almond tuile and bergamot. Loved the nice soft texture of the bun that can be pulled apart easily, and also the crunch and fragrance from the almond tuile & bergamot respectively! Rating: 3.7/5

~Cashew Tart: Crispy nutty pastry shell filled with cashew & saffron frangipane with orange blossom scented mulberries, topped with a cashew nougatine and saffron dust. Cashew nut lovers will definitely enjoy this tart, as there is a really strong cashew taste in this! Rating: 3.6/5

~Vanilla & Salted Caramel Flan: This is their interpretation of the classic French flan. It’s a flaky pastry filled with salted caramel and luscious vanilla custard, baked till caramelized, then glazed with more vanilla. We thought taste-wise this was decent, but the flavours did not ‘wow’ us. Rating: 3.2/5

~Macadamia & Mango Pepito: This is our favourite pastry of the set! It’s a sourdough croissant pastry layered with macadamia paste and mango jam, with sprinkles of mango, yuzu, and caramelised white chocolate. Loved the texture of the outer layer and the harmonious flavours inside!

Checked out Kahuna Açai, a new açai kiosk located at AMK Hub recently. There are a total of 5 options (Kahuna, Mahalo, Aloha, Maui & Waikiki) of açai bowls to choose from here, and each bowl comes with your choice of homemade granola (The OG, Black Forest, Speculoos, Chai-Spiced, Hawaiian Sunrise) and drizzle (Almond Butter, Cashew Butter, Maple Cinnamon Butter, Oatmeal Raisin Butter, Chai-Spiced Almond Butter).

We tried the Kahuna (cover pic, left) and Mahalo (cover pic, right) - the former is an earl grey infused açai, with fresh fruits, Black Forest granola, almonds, coconut flakes & Cashew Butter drizzle, while the latter is a cacao açai, with bananas, strawberries, The OG granola, almonds, cacao nibs & Oatmeal Raisin Butter drizzle. Both appealed to me in different ways - the Kahuna was light and refreshing with a nice subtle fragrance from the earl grey, while the Mahalo had a heavier, more earthy taste that grew on me after a few mouthfuls!

You can purchase their homemade granola and nut butters in stores too!

Le Matin Patisserie has launched their CNY Box that’s available till 13 Feb 2022.

~Lacto-Fermented Pineapple Galette
~Kumquat & Sea Buckthorn Danish
~Hae Bee Hiam Laminated Donut Roll
~Sweet Potato & Yuzu Brioche Bun
~Chrysanthemum & Pear Custard Flan

As usual, their pastries did not disappoint and the standouts for us are the Lacto-Fermented Pineapple Galette (Truly an elevated pineapple tart! The creme fraiche helped to cut the tartness of the pineapple!), Hae Bee Hiam Laminated Donut Roll (So rich and savoury, the Hae Bee Hiam Cream Cheese Custard is the star of this pastry!) and the Chrysanthemum & Pear Custard Flan (Subtle floral flavours from the pear & chrysanthemum! Was expecting it to be jelak but it wasn’t!).

The CNY Box is available for self-pick up or delivery. And you can order via the link in @lematin.sg’s bio on Instagram. If you opt for pick up, consider having them on the spot with their refreshing Chrysanthemum Kombucha or Iced Latte too.

~Raspberry Cheesecake Cruffin ($6.50): A tangy choice for those who prefer something lighter! Cheesecake batter made with whipped cream cheese, sour cream, melted white chocolate and raspberry powder fills this cruffin. To finish, graham pie crumbs and freeze dried raspberries top this stunner.

~Candy Cane White Chocolate Donut ($5.80): A must-have sweet for Xmas reimagined in a donut! Shards of candy cane white chocolate bark is folded into peppermint and white chocolate cream in this donut’s filling. You’ll even get a piece of the bark as a topping. *Available from Fridays to Sundays only.

~Strawberry Rhubarb Jam Donut ($5.80): A wonderfully sweet and tart donut to have for tea. The house-made jam filling is made with strawberry and rhubarb, while a piece of pie crust tops the donut.

Ah Mah Homemade Cake has unveiled her latest festive special Chocolate Passion Fruit Log Cake for a limited time only till the end of Dec 2021. The light and fluffy chocolate sponge is filled with a zesty fresh cream made from passionfruit jam and real passionfruit pulp! Covering it all is a dark and luscious chocolate ganache, with whipped cream peaks, powdered sugar and chocolate caramel peals added for a festive feel. I personally love the overall decadence and zestiness in this cake; it certainly makes for an indulgent festive treat!
