Warning: Not for peeps with Trypophobia

My sis got this from homebaker Mamam munchkin. They're not super active on ig but their bakes are pretty good! The softness and moist, fluffy cake won many praises! Only gripe would be the lack of aesthetics (the Trypophobic presentation just doesn't work well ... even with peeps without Trypophobia). The banana taste in this chocolate version was subtle - perfect for non-banana lovers like my sister and yet, love chocolate cake. I guess it's a good starting point for non-banana lovers. There's subtle banana fragrance and whiffs out when you open the box and it gets more pronounced when you heat it up (not a must!) Mamam munchkin threw in an additional, complimentary serving of chocolate buttons which, tbh wasnt quite needed. Ours were left untouched after the cake was polished off!

Priced at $35, it's defo not the cheapest around, but 10/10 for softness and moistness.

We decided on the genmaicha cake because we each had matcha and hojicha drinks. This completes the x3 cha cha cha selections? 😂

It was love at first bite with the strong earthy and roasty notes of the genmaicha cake. Y’know some real bits of genmaicha has gotten into the making of this cake! It wasn’t at all cloying despite it being coated with cream. Cream-cake-sable ratio was perfect. We also love how the cake wasn’t overly sweet. It was pretty addictive to savour and I guess I found my fav cake here!

so far the BEST the fiancé and I have tasted! It's rare to find a tiramisu that WOW us! & we're incredibly delighted to find this at IO! Having had the best tiramisu in Florence years back, the bar for tiramisu is high. While this certainly doesnt match up to the one we had back in Florence, it's a close enough substitute! We've tried tiramisu in various Italian restaurants here - including those from rather prominent restaurants but none left such a deep impression! We love the layer of pistachio that added some crunch and nuttiness to the alcohol-infused sponge fingers. The spongy fingers were soft, fluffy and well balanced with lightly whipped mascarpone on top. Despite the seemingly thick layers of mascarpone cream, the dessert wasnt any bit cloying. In fact, we continued mouthfuls after mouthfuls despite having had a rather heavy dinner of amazing, authentic Italiano dishes . Y'know this is a must order when you spot this at almost every other table. At the time of order, the waiter affirmed our choice of dessert, "this is really good!" The fiancé loved it so much that he'd requested this for his next birthday. At $14++, this is pretty affordable and a worthy price to pay for the satisfaction it brings (compared to paying the same or more at certain restaurants, with meh~ tasting tiramisu!)

The perfect cake size for scaled down birthday celebrations in Covid times! In fact, I can have this all by myself!

Fluffy chocolate sponge layers creamed generously with their signature fresh white cream, chocolate cream and cocoa ball nibbles within. Topped with another layer of chocolate creams, nama chocolate squares (comparable to Royce’s) and dark chocolate balls

Matcha lemon pound cake - a tad too dry, matcha taste could be stronger, lemony fragrance and tanginess could be stronger too!

Not your typical pandan cake. Andaz’s pandan cake comes enveloped in mousse and a gel-ish layer of green pandan ... blanket (?) I like how it’s so glossy.
As a result of the many layers, I can’t quite comment on the taste of the pandan chiffon cake because I couldn’t tell if the pandan aroma came from the cake alone, or if it was bland but well ‘carried’ by mousse and gel-ish layer. The chiffon was soft tho- just like how you’d expect chiffon to be. Dotting around the circumference were coconut shreds that added texture to each bite. At $14++, I probably wouldn’t want to order it again. Bengawan solo’s good ol’ pandan cake still wins my heart. It’s works out to be around the same price ($16.50) and is way bigger!

Well, muffins is a kinda cake I suppose? These muffins are officially THE BEST in town! What makes these lil’ babies stand out are the streusel topping that comes with more than half of their muffin menu! They’re the good ol’ traditional muffins without streusel bits which tasted great too but GO FOR THE STREUSEL versions!! The toppings were exceptionally crunchy and indulgent. Only the freshest ingredients goes into the batter - with blueberry streusel muffs bursting with blueberries fruit bits in the core! Gooey but a delightful mess. Green Tea Monster is made of matcha with chocolate chips. You can taste matcha fragrance (not flavouring yo) with each bite. It’s so rich! Every single muffin wasn’t overly sweet so I’d say pretty perfect for everyday snack (I wish!) Also tasty were the vanilla streusel and mocha streusel. Other recommendations by the store owner includes double chocolate and hazelnut chocolate! They’re so so so good; it’s no surprise if they run low on variety if you drop by late! Special thanks to my fiancé who joined the queue in the blazing hot sun and humid weather to get these for me!🥰

Highly recommending Cake Genie🧞‍♀️SG for customised cakes and bakes! Behind the beautiful cakes is a talented baker who’s extremely creative with her designs - just tell her your concept and she’ll be share across some drawings for your stamp of approval before she proceeds with the bake. We got this cake for my cousin’s 👶🏻 gender-reveal party and within we’re light pink layers of lychee cake with speculoos. (yes, it’s a baby girl!) Aesthetics wise, it’s already a 10/10. Taste wise, it’s also a 10/10! Love the fluffiness of the lychee layer within and the slight saltiness of the speculoos. Particularly love how the cream is light in taste and therefore, isn’t too heavy on the stomach after a party feast!

Just the good ol’ creamy, rich classic.
‘ve always been apprehensive towards desserts from coffee chains because they’re supplied from third parties, rather than baked in house. Also, I’d been disappointed with the bakes from ⭐️ bucks. However, the classic new york cheesecake from coffee bean won me over! Definitely my cheesecake go-to

Warning: Will get jelat! So SHARE

Oh no. I don’t like their cupcakes. Now I don’t like their cakes too! Nothing really “oreo” - the mini Oreos were mushy and had lost its crunch. The chocolate sponge cake tasted strongly of artificial chocolate essence and the cookies cream tasted nothing like cookie too. No part of this cake resembled anything like Oreo at all.

That classic you can’t miss.
The classic that perhaps only PV is able to elevate with the use of quality ingredients (& taste!) only gripe would be the slightly frozen/icy whipped cream (it’s my bad to have it refrigerated). I recall the last time I didn’t refrigerate my cupcakes, they were incredibly fluffy and creamy (way nicer then cold cuppies and slightly icy-hard cream!)

Love how PV is true to their philosophy, serving up premium and fresh cuppies every single day, even in times of circuit breaker where baking supplies and ingredients are harder to get (?) Within the cuppie sits many chocolate chips and FRESH, PULPY banana slices. The premium they charge is justified, my tummy is so satisfied 🤗

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
