📍日日茶 Ri Ri Cha, Chinatown📍
💸 Nian Gao Waffle with Honey Chamomile and Blue Pea Ice Crram: $11.30
💸 Duck Shit Oolong Ice Cream with Mochi Skin: $6.50

Decided to try out this new cafe as we were intrigued by their Nian Gao Waffles and interesting ice cream flavours🍦. We were excited for the waffles, but felt that it was pretty average as the Nian Gao was not as warm and stretchy as we would've liked🧇. The taste was also covered by the waffle and ice cream too, which was a pity. The ice cream though, was really good, especially the Duck Shit Oolong which had a strong oolong taste with floral notes🌸. We'll recommend trying that for sure if you're a fan of tea flavoured ice cream🍵. Loved the pairing with the soft mochi skin as well, but it was a little tough to eat as the mochi skin was hard to cut with the spoon provided🥄. It's a little crowded in the afternoon, but still a nice place to chill at😌!

📍Cinnabon, Raffles City📍
💸 Mini Mix and Match (2 Mini Classic, 1 Mini Caramel Pecabon, 1 Mini Chocobon) : $17

Being huge fans of cinnamon rolls, we were really excited when Cinnabon opened in Singapore😍. Seeing the cinammon roll being soaked in syrup and covered in frosting, we were a little apprehensive at first. It was not super duper sweet, but still a little sweet for our liking🍯. We also felt that it got a bit dense and hard after a while. It'll probably be better to have it while it’s warm😅. Not the most healthy snack to munch on, more of an indulgence once in a while. However, you might want to wait till the queues subside a little before heading down🥲!

📍Beard Papa's, Plaza Singapura📍
💸 Pistachio Cream Puff: $3.80
...
I'm sure we're not the only ones who are attracted to the smell of Beard Papa's freshly baked pastries everytime we walk out of Dhoby Ghaut mrt station👃! Anyways, we were lucky to have tried their pistachio cream puff, their seasonal special for Dec 22, on it's last day😬! We liked that the pistachio cream is smooth, rich and nutty🥜, but we still prefer their original vanilla custard. Nonetheless, it's still a good cream puff🥧! Always love how their cream is freshly piped upon order, which keeps the crust still crispy. It's always generously filled as well, which makes every mouthful super fulfilling and enjoyable😌!

📍Uncle Lee Confectionery, 4 Jln Pisang📍
💸 Nostalgic Buttercream Cake (Vanilla sponge, Peanut): $20
...
After trying their Kaya Cake previously, we had to try their Peanut Vanilla cake, which was also highly raved about🍰. True enough, the cake was super soft, and the peanuts on top were very fragrant🥜. Not too sweet too so it's good for everyone in the family to enjoy. We could be biased, but as we love kaya, we definitely love the Kaya cake more🌚. But our parents preferred the Peanut Buttercream cake, I guess we'll have no choice but to get both next time? 😝

Enjoyed our afternoon tea with Uncle Lee Confectionery's Kaya Cake and Custard Puff😍. The smell of pandan hit us the moment we brought the cake out from the fridge, super duper fragrant🤩! The pandan sponge is light and airy, love it with the layers of pandan kaya custard🍰. Be sure to chill it before consumption. The old-school custard puffs were also cheap and delicious, one of the best we've had👏!

📍The Dark Gallery, Takashimaya📍
💸 Chocolate and Coffee pairing: $15
💸 80% Dark chocolate ice cream
...
Super excited to try The Dark Gallery as we love anything chocolate🍫! The Chocolate brownie in the Chocolate and Coffee pairing was absolutely delicious. It was warm, soft, chocolatey and dense. Having it with the chocolate sauce drizzled on it made it an even more decadent treat🤤! Glad to have the coffee which helped to wash it down☕. The chocolate ice cream was pretty good too. We liked that it was not too sweet, but it was a little icy for us🍦. We'll definitely return for that chocolate brownie though!

📍Cedele, Waterway Point📍
💸 Real Dark Chocolate, Red Velvet, Chocolate Cookies & Cream cheesecake and Yuzu Raspberry cheesecake
...
Reviewing round 2 of cakes we got from Cedele🍰! The cakes we had this time round were all pretty good. The cheesecakes were creamy and not too heavy-tasting🧀. However, we did find the Yuzu Raspberry cheesecake a little sweet and the taste of dark chocolate cookies🍪 could be more prominent for the Chocolate Cookies & Cream cheesecake😬. We loved the Red Velvet and Real Chocolate cake🍫, especially the chocolate cake which was simple but delicious. Also had just the perfect amount of frosting to make it a delectable afternoon snack☕!

Simply can't resist getting ice cream from Bird's of Paradise everytime we're at Jewel Changi😋. Our favourite flavour is Pistachio, which is creamy, nutty and not too sweet🍦. Love having their Thyme cone as well, as we love the fragrance and flavour of the herbs🌿, which is something you don't really get in usual cones. Though a little pricey, everyone needs an indulgence once in a while right?😬

📍Cedele, Raffles City📍
💸 Strawberry Fields, Carrot Walnut, Chocolate Matcha and Lychee Rose
...
Super duper lucky to have won Cedele's anniversary giveaway, now we have 25 free cake slices🎉! Cedele's Carrot Walnut Cake is our absolute go-to and because of that, we've actually never tried their other cakes before😂. Not to mention that prices have gone up slightly now, so all the more we stuck to something we know is good.

Thanks to the giveaway, we are now on a mission to try as many Cedele cake flavours as we can🍰! Our favourite is still the Carrot Walnut🥕, especially the dense carrot cake which goes so well with the cream cheese frosting🧀 and walnuts. The Chocolate Matcha is not bad too, especially the contrast between the bitter matcha and rich chocolate🍫. However, it was a little too creamy for us and we wished for it to have more cake.

On to the other flavours now😌!

💸 Pandan Coconut Tart
...
Have been eyeing the tarts from Tarte by Cheryl Koh for a while now as they look so pretty and delicious, and we finally got to try them some time back🤤. Had the Pandan Coconut Tart🥥, a flavour that is less common and it was pretty good! The filling tastes like kaya with a mild pandan fragrance, and the tart pastry was buttery and crumbly, not oily at all👍!

💸 Pistachio Soufflé
...
The Pistachio Soufflé was on the airy side and it almost feels like eating clouds hahaha☁️. For us who prefer our soufflé to be on the cakier side, we didn't really enjoy the texture of this. We also felt that the raspberry sorbet that came with it was a little too tart for our liking😥. Overall, a nice place for fancy desserts but definitely on the pricier side😅.

💸 Koicha Lava Cake
💸 Kuroguma (Black sesame) soft serve (Cup): $6
💸 Houjicha milk (Cold): $6.30
💸 Matcha Azuki (Hot): $6
💸 Momo Sencha (Hot): $6
...
Tried the Koicha Lava Cake from Matchaya some time back and it was so good! It's a bit small, but the quality makes up for it😅. It had a super strong taste of tea, and look at how flowy and goey it is on the inside. Best eaten while still hot!😌 Also loved the addition of red beans, which helped to give it a different texture and cut through the thick tea taste.

Got our usual teas🍵 and soft serve🍦 as well, definitely a great place for those looking for quality Japanese desserts.

Occasionally enjoys pigging out🤙🏻 Also on insta @munchkinggs
