People who know me know that I’m a matcha lover and this cake clearly passes my matcha test! The cake is generously made with matcha powder and you can still taste a tinge of the matcha bitterness which makes this a true match cake! Not those cheap matcha cake. Some might not like the bitter test but if you love matcha, then this cake should sit pretty well with you!
Score: 9/10
Cost: $9

Back here and finally got to try their cakes!!
Black sesame cake was not too overpowering. The crumbs on top added a nice flavour to the cake. Just right! Cream doesn’t taste overwhelmingly like cream. so it was right!
Would give this an 8/10!
Cost: $9

Green Tea Praline ($9, left) And Raspberry Lemon Cake ($9, right)

The raspberry lemon cake totally stole the show! The raspberry and lemon flavour blended so well together and gave my tastebuds such a pleasant surprise when I took my first bite. Would give this a 9/10 rating.

The green tea praline was however a disappointment. Green tea cream on the cake was meh, tasted like cheap cream and the sponge cake was average, nothing special. Would give this a 5/10 rating.

Note: they have cakes inside the fridge as well as outside. The raspberry lemon cake was part of the selection outside and the sponge tasted more moist than the green tea praline which was part of the inside selection.

Like all their other dishes, their desserts are just as nicely plated just like a piece of art work.

We thoroughly enjoyed bubbling onto the various components of this dessert - what seemed to be sponge cake but it was much airier and lighter, shortbread cookie pieces, a small portion of something sweet and cold - we think it’s ice cream and the swirl of white stuff that seems like something to cleanse our palate first before digging into the dessert. Clearly, we should have took greater note of the dessert components on the menu before ordering. But yea! This was interesting. Will be back to try other desserts!

Ran out of caked when we reached at 8.15pm on Monday - according to the staff, they don’t usually sell out on a Monday but a customer came by and bought one whole cake just before us!

So we tried their Tiramisu ($11.85) and Jasmine Orient ($9.80) with Burpple Beyond 1F1. And got ourselves the Hibiscus Lime Tapping Tapir drink. ($6)

Decent dessert (7/10) and drink was refreshing! (8/10)

Will be back to try their cakes which look really good!

Mud Pie
Cost: $5.90
Description: The mud pie contains chocolate, cookies and cream, burnt caramel ice cream with Oreo cookie crumbs
Service: efficient and helpful service staff who willingly helped to take photos for us
Ambience: Some might find the shop’s interior rather small and a little narrow but I suppose this adds to the cosy vibes of the place. As it’s a small shop, you might not be able to get seats inside. My friends and I had to sit outside which was not too bad either as they had ceiling fans!
Personal take: I personally love this mud pie so much! Brought my friends here to celebrate a friend’s birthday and they were amazed by how good it was too. Island creamery is definitely my go to place for mud pies.
If ever you are craving a dessert that is cake-like and yet icecream-ish, then get the mud pie. It is a perfect blend of neutral old school flavors that many will love and the cookie crumbs and chocolate borders provide a good texture contrast to the inner ice cream core.
4 of us shared this mud pie, which was just enough for us. But I definitely can wallop one whole mud pie on my own :)
