All The Sweet Nothings

List for everyone with a sweet tooth out there! *wink*

A very pleasantly light piece that has an almond dacquoise base, with layers of nutty pistachio praline, tangy sweet strawberry crémeux and rhubarb compote, plus valrhona opalys bavarois. Was specially created for Christmas!

Pear compote, vanilla, white chocolate and amaretto on a base of hazelnut chocolate sponge and chocolate sablé. I personally would have liked a more distinct pear sweetness to come through, as the chocolate elements seem to take centre stage.

Visited Museum of Ice Cream a bit back for PINKMAS, their Christmas special, where the rooms were decorated in Christmas decor! There were different ice cream flavours at the various stops and each stop had them in different forms - like in cones, cups, with wafer, etc. The flavours were more misses than hits for us unfortunately.

How cute is this Christmas cake from LUNA! It’s adorably shaped like a whole row of Christmas trees, featuring an almond sponge crispy feuilletine base, with 3 distinct layers that complemented each other very nicely - dark chocolate mousse, sweet caramel milk chocolate mousse and yogurt & cream cheese white chocolate. Liked that this wasn’t too sweet, a good option for all the upcoming Christmas gatherings!

When you don’t know which pie flavour to pick - Elijah Pies’ Happy Box comes with a slice of each of 8 flavours.

Not a fan of their tart crust unfortunately, we thought it could be a lot more firm, crisp and consistent in its texture, but they have pretty fun flavours like Speculoos Hojicha, Wild Berry Lavendar & Honey Chrysantemum. Our personal preference was the Matcha Latte, that albeit a bit sweet, had quite nice intense matcha notes.

Have been noticing that coconut seems to be a popular flavour for Christmas cakes this year! Sheraton Towers’ Ivory Delight Log Cake features the same, with soft and fragrant pandan sponge layered with yam paste and coconut mousse. Enjoyed this! It was mildly sweetened, tasty, and serves as a light dessert option that’s good to pair with your Christmas roast meats and feasts.

Got our hands on @curatedculture_sg x @guiltfreefoodsg’s Christmas gift box!

They’re both big on gluten free and healthier options, with Curated Culture’s probiotic teas & Guilt Free Food Sg’s bakes. Their Christmas collab features each box with 2 teas and a choice of bake - a pair of Mochi Muffins or Vegan Chocolate Cookies which aims to satisfy the sweet tooth cravings with reduced sugar in the recipes (actual taste was sweeter than I expected!). The mildly sweet and lightly fizzy probiotic teas are all natural with no extra bad stuff added in, only lots of probiotics that’s good for your gut! Their green teas and black teas are tasty.

Had @dilutedcoke the first time a long while back and really enjoyed her bakes!! Happy to hear that she’s having a popup at Baker X in Orchard Central, till 13 November.

Got to try some of the items from her Baker X menu, but she has more items available and will be changing up her menu mid-way. Here’s her Pistachio Tart, Matcha Yuzu Salted Caramel Tart, Black Sesame & Yuzu Sando, Earl Grey Pecan Sando! Always love that while her bakes are lightly sweetened, flavours are not compromised. It’s difficult to pick a favourite, but I was most surprised by the Earl Grey Pecan Sando - by how nicely the maple pecan paste when with the earl grey, even though I’m not usually a fan of this tea. Her tarts have such a lovely buttery tart crust!

These were sweeter and heavier than we’d prefer, would be nice to up the salt ratio for a better balance. We preferred the Berry Good Raspberry brownies much more. More order details over at @bakesflouryou.

Super duper fudgy brownies from @bakesflouryou! Was very pleasantly surprised by the Berry Good Raspberry brownies. They were studded with a pretty generous amount of raspberries all around, and were chocolatey, fruity, with a distinct tartness that made it easy to enjoy. More order details at @bakesflouryou.

Newly launched Minions doughnuts at Kripsy Kreme for a limited time period. The minion designs of Bob, Otto and Stuart are all covered in a banana glaze, filled with chocolate fudge and has white chocolate eyes on top. Found the banana glaze quite artificial unfortunately, and the filling could be a lot less sweet.

Super interesting combination here - you have burrata soft serve, tomato and strawberries jam with a dash of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Thoroughly enjoyed this!
