Sweet Treats

Because there is always an extra stomach for dessert 😛

This cake gets a 9.5/10 from me! 🌟 And people who know me would know I LOVEEE cake and I eat cake like 2-3x per week haha. This cake was denser side but what amazed me was the rich fragrant pistachio nutty flavour that really came through. There was also just the right amount of buttercream and a layer of raspberry jam to add a sweet-sour finish. Last but not least, the chopped pistachios on top added a nice contrasting crunch.

First time trying this drink and it really tastes as good as it looks! 👍🏼 The black sesame pearls were THE BOMB. Could really taste the black sesame and there was also a slight grainy texture along with each bouncy bite of the pearls. 25% sugar was just right for me as well but I do like a more intense matcha flavour in general

Hmm.. this was a bit too sweet for my liking, mostly due to the caramelised layer at the top- but I did like the crunch of this though. Kudos to Sinpopo for being extremely generous with the shredded coconut stuffed between the layers. Got a bit jelat at the end... So I think for crepe cakes, I’d still stick to my favourite Lady M for quality-assured crepe cakes.

Interesting local flavour but tasted just alright. Wish there were more glutinous rice bits in the middle cream layer and the top fresh (coconut?) cream layer was a tad too thick for my liking.

Sinpopo at Funan mall is a really nice cafe to sit, chill and people watch at. And so I’ve found myself returning time and again 😌 The row of seats outside facing the crowds also remind me a lot of Paris!

This cake was love at first sight 😍 if you like cedele’s carrot walnut cake, then this cake ain’t gonna disappoint! I enjoyed the dense sponge cake paired with the light and fragrant pistachio butter cream (just the right amount and not too sweet!) to make it sufficiently moist. The tart raspberry jelly layer provided a good contrast as well. And I mean, just look at that generous amount of roasted pistachios all on the top!!!

Undeniably, the price pretty steep for a slice of cake but rest assured, you get good quality ingredients and a lovely cafe experience in a vintage set up :) Pretty sure I’ll find myself craving for this cake from time to time...

Due to covid, tasting samples are no longer provided before purchasing and I must admit I was a bittt stressed about selecting the flavours HAHA - I mean how often do I come to jewel and birds of paradise?? But I had absolutely no regrets with the chocolate gianduja - it’s legit as good as the chocolate gelatos I had back in Italy, thick and creamy and just right sweetness for me. The spiced pear was a bit more underwhelming for me, maybe cos the intense flavour of the chocolate overpowered it. Yet, it was important to have something light to balance out the chocolate. I would recommend the chrysanthemum though!

Wish I could have this more often 😭😭 why do I live so far away

Missed this the other time lady M launched it and had 10000 regrets - I’m a huge fan of all things pistachio!!!! So glad I managed to try this this time and as usual, lady M doesn’t disappoint. Just look at the layers from its side profile and imagine the pistachio cream oozing out as you sink your fork into it! But do note that this version I slightly heavier on the palate than usual.

This is my second favourite out of the 4 desserts we ordered! My favourite is actually the salted caramel French toast but sadly, we devoured it so quickly that no photo could be taken HAHA (but please do yourself a favour and order it!!) The waffle here was thick and crispy on the outside but still fluffy inside. Unlike all the other desserts, this had 2 scoops of ice cream which in my opinion, is more optimal so you can have a bit of ice cream with every bite of waffle 😊

This complemented the other sweeter desserts we had ordered with a slight touch of sourness. I liked that there was a generous serving of blueberries and strawberries but the waffle here somehow wasn’t as crispy as the other in our chocolate and banana waffle.

Ordered this as part of the BB high tea set (1 sweet dessert + 1 drink, one for one!). It came as a stack of 3 pancakes topped with matcha mousse and served with whipped cream and a scoop of vanilla ice cream (hiding behind!!) Although it appears super aesthetic, somehow the matcha mousse was lacking in any real matcha flavour. I much preferred having the pancakes with the ice cream and matcha sauce on the side.

Seasonal flavour that will be gone on 31 Dec! Like today!! There was a layer of coffee-soaked sponge amidst the many other layers of chocolate crepe and mascarpone cream. I liked that this was not too sweet. But somehow this cake didn’t hold as well as their other flavours normally do and so it was threatening to disintegrate multiple times while we were eating!

Wasn’t intending to get this initially but the sales lady saw us checking it out on the counter and started introducing all the cakes to us. We looked at each other, our eyes lit up and he made the call - YES, LET’S GET. Love love love this cake with its gula melaka fudge at the top and glutinous rice filling in between layers of sponge cake. The texture of the cake is really moist and not at all dry and crumbly. Will be back to try the other cakes like the ondeh ondeh and the durian which also look really good!

Always on the lookout for good nomz
