One of the best carrot cakes I’ve had - choke full of carrot shreds and seasoned fruits, without being shy about the prime complementary ingredient of walnuts as well. But what really drew me in were the notes of spice in every bite, singing on the palate.

Sadly the cupcakes were less outstanding compared to what I remembered. Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t bad, they came with regular cupcake sponge that were not dry but not perfectly moist and dense either. The chocolate cupcake also clearly had more outstanding embellishers but suffered from a dry Graham biscuit base, maybe this was a one off thing.

One of the best cream puffs I’ve had; the (amazingly delicious) cream to puff ratio made me fall head over heels with this dessert!
Also the milk panna cotta base in most of their dessert jars is the smoothest you’ll find in the market. Made with Hokkaido BIEI jersey milk, the middle 2 words I’ve no clue how premium it’s meant to be but tastes great.

Quickly becoming my go to place for a picturesque celebratory location without breaking the bank. Appreciate burppler and Andaz dessert chef- Fiona & her team’s artistic creations that complemented the birthday occasions I was celebrating. Delicious desserts like works of art are right up my alley, which are the ones here.

Bar Square also has some worth it happy hour that’s too good not to share about.

Mum’s favourite chain cafe for made upon order cafe waffles has gotten my stamp of approval 😬

100labs at Bugis cos the location isn’t showing up!

I loved the pleasantly stodgy waffles here more than the icy sweet ice cream at 100labs. The menu is simple, just like the facade here but well worth checking out because this was simple dessert waffles done right

Snag the last Burpplebeyond (BB) deal at the Forage; while I am slight devastated that our favourite place for waffles in the East is not longer on the BB programme, let’s focus on what’s pictured.

The cakes here were nothing outlandishly novel or groundbreaking (pls pardon me for I’ve been consuming way too much of Netflix’s sugar rush); they were your home baked cakes that were nice to fork on in the East hood. Also, I found the white chocolate in the red velvet frosting delightful only for my childhood tastebud.

Detracting I’ve recently tasted quite a bit of cake incorporating white chocolate cleverly(? you decide) and subtly into cheesecake/ cream for example. This is new to my amateur baking radar.

I had an involuntary ice cream ban on a Friday night, when the ice cream cookie & co tubs went perpetually OOS at all supermarkets in this part of SG. But come Saturday morning our dear family friends appeared in front of our door with handcrafted pintS of the Fat Cat ice cream.
We could not have asked for more but our couple friends included waffles and brownies in the delivery bag ; my favourites were the chewy buttermilk and charcoal waffles with in-house made chocolate and butterscotch sauces to be exact. Nicely chewy on its own, popping the waffles in the toaster for <1 min will give you the fresh off the griddle cafe waffles you desired, crisp on the outside and chewy inside.
As for the ice creams- I believe the fact that Fat Cat has been in business for years now, surviving the highly competitive SG ice cream scene speaks for itself. The Brand’s sweet ice creams use all natural ingredients i.e bites of durian flesh in our durian flavour, comforting grease with the taste of fermented wheat in the acquire taste of butter beer. If I may continue, cereal bites in my favourite flavor of cereal milk reminding me of Momofuku Chef Christina Tosi’s cereal milk bar phenomena I only watched and dream about on Chef’s Table. Then the fresh basil leaves for the strawberry basil flavour and shots of espresso that perks you up right away in the espresso ice cream.
Enough rambling and instead I should get my hands on more pints once the ones at home run out, free delivery in the East for orders $50 and above anyone?

I do miss having chewy pretty looking waffles for weekend brunch as pictured. But I am glad that the number of cases dropped today ✨

If anyone said that Smooy was another option to/ tasted like Llao Llao, I would call that fallacious. But $2~ for frozen yoghurt I’ll take, with Burpplebeyond. 😶😛

I knew I could leave any diet plans I loftily have in mind (and hardly act upon 😂), at the door after stepping into Mother Dough. Because even the above 2 left over bakes were tempting enough (time check: 4pm on a Saturday). I first gave the chocolate brownie a shot and it proved itself as a confident square with hard crisp crust and a rich dense gooey like center; truly the gold standard of real brownies.
When we ordered the lemon drizzle it was an equally indulgent, adequately moist butter cake with lemon zest and an icing sugar coat.
Thankfully I shared the 2 with my mother aka partner in crime and we preferred the decadent brownie with a generous scoop of nuts evenly spread in the cake. The yellow cake was not as evenly mixed with jolts of zest in some bites and an absence in others.
I was here for the croissants and shall be back for the croissants.

[backlog] The festive season celebrations at home happen to be a concurrent cake galore for my family. I mean 5 cakes in a span of less than a week is no small feat?

2 of which happened on the same day and were local flavours, Ondeh Ondeh and Durian Pengat ordered from the Malayan Council.

On another day mum got a massive salted Carmel red velvet from a trusted cake company we’ve familiarised ourselves with, post moving to the East. Chalk Farm did not disappoint with the dense red velvet sponge dyed in deep red beetroot colouring; layered with thick salted caramel cream, a great pairing in my opinion.

May the new year be of better food experience and delicious cake slices on treatyoself days✨
