Tea break @aicafesg. A display of cakes with interesting options like Matcha Goma ($9.80).

Shaped like bamboo, it is made with layers of black sesame mousse, black sesame feuilletine and matcha sponge encased within the matcha mousse gateau. Nice pairing though the black sesame seem to overpower the matcha notes

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

Remember those beautiful galaxy domes, tartlets and tiramisu? Glad to share that @rachelrax had launched her own shop (near Serangoon MRT) and you can purchase them in-store!

Tarts come in both Mini ($27.80/box of 12pcs) and Regular (from $8.50), and currently available for take away only. Other than everyone’s favourite Lychee Rose Boba, expect to find seasonal specials like Hae Bee Hiam, Butterscotch Cornflakes and Pineapple Crumble.

And FBB IS BACK! The newer outlet is bigger than before though something need to be done about the soundproofing. Their cakes are still as impressive! Check out that memorable cake display filled with Signatures, Diva or Divo series.

Here’s their rendition of Ondeh Ondeh. A light pandan & cream sponge, each layered with naked cream cheese and Gula Melaka sugar crumbs. Coated in a coconut cream and Gula Melaka meringue buttercream.

Fill your weekend with the wonderful smells of cakes, bakes and coffee. @pantler has reopened yesterday at River Valley with a bigger and spacious place.

Be greeted by an array of beautifully crafted cakes, which are available in slices and whole. Hard-pressed to choose, we ended up with three liquor-free cakes:
• Yatsura ($9.50), one of their signature, made of hazelnut dacquoise, dark chocolate ganache and crunchy hazelnut feuilletine.
• Citron Blanc ($9.50), Fromage Blanc with lemon confit.
• Nagomi ($9.50), our favourite of the trio. Fragrant Earl Grey Mousse accompanied by tangy bergamot and caramelised almonds

A hole-in-the-wall cafe with Taiwanese vibes, @sweetcraftsman offers Swiss rolls, tarts and other bakes.

The most eye-catching will be the Matcha, Tieguanyin and Chocolate Raspberry Fujiro ($7.80 each), featuring an Mt Fuji! So pretty, which is why I ended up with two.

Matcha Fujiro consist of matcha sponge cake layered with matcha, strawberry and whipping cream. Though the strawberry overpowered the matcha fragrance.

Kickstart the day with a Strong White and ☁️ Cloud Beta v0.1 ($9.00) is made of light-as-air ivoire white chocolate mousse and strawberry jelly on a crumbly shortbread base.

Each layer of the handmade chocolate crêpes is lathered with salted caramel infused pastry cream, finished with a buttery thick glaze and crunchy cacao nibs. It’s worth the calories!

A bit of sweetness can drown out a whole load of bitterness. So I’m always having sweets 🧁🍧🍡
