“I have a fetish for pretty cakes”, I said when discussing with my fellow colleague about which cake to get for our colleague’s birthday. This explains why I was drawn to luna’s orh nee cake after scrolling through the web, I subconsciously found myself spending hours to get the right one at an affordable delivery price ($7 flat fee for Luna). I definitely also checked the pretty cake box because I was elated when I opened the box, that dual-coloured whipping cream masterpiece was a joy to the eyes.
Taste wise, I was expecting a lighter sponge to the thickened yam paste but it was relatively dense; nothing direly wrong though.
Also, the fresh whipped cream and “heavier” yam paste I thought could do with another alternating element within to make this a stellar cake; right now it is a good cake.

Another installation of Tsujiri at whitesands because mum and I love the soft serve.
Today we decided on the chiffon cake parfait but still had to have our warumochi. The cake was decent and the parfait came with cornflakes and a scope of (sweet) red bean. As a whole we preferred the puffed rice crisps, cream and soft serve combination of the warumochi parfait - but as they say “you never try, you never know”.

Braved a 15 minute walk in the recent Singapore heat, from a church we were visiting only because of Burpplebeyond.
Also because I spied Denzy at i12 huggs outlet and thought this homegrown ice cream brand must be doing things right.
Our scoops of pistachio and yoghurt with speculoos (think firmer yole with ur favourite cookie sauce) were indeed promising and the waffles here are airy. They have crisp ends and are easy for 1 pax to finish off, well at least both mum and I had 1 each.
Was mildly peeved after spending 1 hour at the Bedok cafe when I enquired if they had wifi and the staff immediately chirped no; yet I later saw a “free wifi” sticker on the glass door while walking back to my seat. I should have asked “can I have the wifi password?”.

Realised I’ve not had Cedele cakes in awhile when I was taken aback by the $9.30 price tag of a slice of carrot walnut cake. “Inflation is real” I thought.
But lucky me I get to snag the 25% National Day discount on cakes to commemorate Cedele’s 25th anniversary.

Of course it is only befitting to get the National Day special - Gula Melaka Sago cake and I can always trust Cedele’s cakes inflation or not. The fleshy young coconut meat within the coconut whipped cream center is amazing, not forgetting the soft Gula Melaka cake promised to be baked with unrefined Gula Melaka and olive oil. Thank you Cedele for delivering always 🥹

Switching things up with the Hojicha soft serve today! Equally great 😌 with a cuppa ceremonial grade matcha tea.

Grinned from ear to ear when mum and I found out Tsujiri set up shop right “at our backyard” in White Sands; we love their matcha soft serve and warabimochi period.
Tsujiri also sells ceremonial grade matcha powder, for those who know the difference 🙃

No prize guessing what has been the go to cake brand of 2022 thus far; to further explain this is also the result of being a happy recipient of my close friend’s recent shift to Tanjong Pagar.
The consistent cakes at Nesuto haven’t disappointed once. For each I’ve had in 2022 I take seconds of the soft sponge layers with thoughtful, complementing mousse and/ or cream. The real icing to the cake, almost literally has been the flawless finishings of each whole cake’s exterior. Time for more cake?

When you have more than 10 pax for family gatherings it becomes the perfect excuse for cake. My uncle brought this ginormous box of Lana chocolate cake which is some of the best you’ll find in Singapore.
Its description says everything “timeless classic - soft, moist and feather-light chiffon cake is covered with our signature chocolate fudge.” While this is not your exquisite gateau by acclaimed pastry chefs, it is a timeless classic for comfort.

Feeling less than satisfied for Mother’s Day dinner we thankfully found ourselves at Little Farms for dessert and small bites.
Another cake for Mother’s Day was the Pistachio Rose and because mum wanted something moreish she ordered the Beer Battered Smokey Paprika Cauliflower. The cake was faultless and I’d say on a crowded Saturday evening both items were good to have over conversations in a beautifully furnished space overlooking a street of the Joo Chiat enclave (we sat at the window seats).

This Mother’s Day weekend became a perfect excuse for cake, behold a treat yourself dessert at our large family gathering on Friday evening.
This Raspberry Rose cake had homely soft raspberry genoise sponge alternating between layers of rose cream cheese and an in house made raspberry jam with fresh raspberries. The toppings also reminded me more of cookie crumbles instead of almond sable.
I appreciated that the cake was simple yet with barely adulterated ingredient, sticking true to its flavours.
Glad that everyone was happily finishing their slice(s) even after dinner!
