non-ice cream dessert

Ordered V1 and V2 at the same time and this came a week after V1.

1) Kouign Amann: was in V1 too, but this was wayy crisper. The flavours were similar as before - light, not oily nor too sweet, and the bursts of buttery flavours were enjoyable.
2) Choc Laminated Brioche: liked the diff textures from the fluffier brioche & flakier pastry. The choc, sour fermented cherry & sweet dulce de leche balanced each other out.
3) Smoked Cruffin: a pretty pleasant smoky taste, with a light lemon meringue and the cream (I think it tasted like chestnut?) was good.
3) Seaweed Tart: V interesting! The seaweed tart base had a subtle seaweed flavour and wasn’t crumbly, working well with the pistachio frangipane. The baklava pastry parts were soggy, would have been much better had they been crisp.
5) Canele: was in V1 too, but this was less eggy and the vanilla/cardamom flavours were more pronounced.

Tldr: a better experience than the first. Might repurchase the KA or cruffin if they do pop-ups! But still, had expected more - if it’s that pricey it should have been more impressive.

The V1 box consists of:
- Canele: this was crunchy outside, with a custardy centre, and a subtle citrus & caramel taste. It’s my first time trying a canele, and I thought this was alright. Not something that I would actively reach for. My friend wasn’t a fan as he found it too eggy.
- Kouign Amann: mine had lost most of its crispness during delivery, but there were some crisp parts which were pretty good.
- Lacto Plum Galette: this had the crispest pastry dough in my box which I appreciated, and I liked the tart flavours coming from the plum.
- Pistachio Rose Escargot: most disappointing of the lot. Even though the rose perfumes it without being too overpowering (a plus), there was hardly any pistachio taste AND the pastry was soggy-ish.
- Cruffin: the eucalyptus meringue had a mild, fresh-smelling fragrance, the pastry dough tasted savoury (a little like bonito flakes?) and the charcoal cream was smokey in a good way. However, I was looking through igstories and saw a review by a food blogger of the same cruffin. I was disappointed at how soggy mine was in comparison, and how hers was way more generously filled. Granted, the lack of crispness of the cruffin can’t be helped as SG’s humidity levels are not great (so please, toast your pastries if you find that yours is soggy), but the disparity in the amount of cream makes me feel a little miffed - do paying customers get pastries of differing quality?

In any case, I gave feedback and I think their CS team did well, so thumbs up for that.

Tldr: kinda overhyped; go for the kouign amann & cruffin.

I think the last I ate plain vanilla was 3-4 years ago and oh boy tasting it today really reminds me of the frosting and cream that I have remembered pv to have!!!! I have no idea how they made the white choc frosting soso delicious and the cupcake was SO SO soft and moist & there were fresh strawberries inside the cupcake!! What not to love!!! And seriously I’m not even a cupcake person but WAHHH love it!!!

This is a half portion as I shared this with a friend! The pickled cherry blossom financier was soft and moist, but I wasn’t a fan of the milky taste, and would have preferred a stronger almond taste (since financiers are almond-based). The cherry blossom didn’t really add much as it was really small, but had it been more substantial it would have given a nice boost of flavour.

The pistachio & raspberry cookie was kinda in between a crunchy and chewy cookie - it was neither here nor there. I did like the valrhona choc & raspberry on top.

The matcha yuzu madeleines were the nicest out of everything. It wasn’t too crumbly or cakey - I liked the texture! The yuzu gave a pleasant citrus flavour, and the matcha taste was present.

Overall, my friend and I were slightly disappointed by the bakebox as it had received raving reviews, and it fell short of expectations. We appreciate the effort put into making the treats, but we just feel that it’s nothing to shout about.

Though I did enjoy my mains at pizza express (their pizzas are great!!!!!!!), but nope to their desserts :”( overpriced and really not worth it can get better cakes elsewhere!!!

This might be one of my favourite banana cakes in Singapore! It’s soft and spongy. Although I feel that the banana flavour could be stronger (I remember it too be more banana-y when I last had it in 2019), there’s just something about this cake that I enjoy. It’s not the best banana cake I’ve had, but it’s good enough!

The cold mousse was light and refreshing, and it didn’t feel very ‘heaty’ even though it is a durian dessert. The durian purée was creamy and bittersweet, and we liked this a lot!

Was excited to try this but it disappointed so much :”( the injeolmi (which was good!!) was only at the surface of the ice (no sign of injeolmi in the bingsu itself), the ice was plain as well (lack of milky taste, really just eating plain shave ice), and there were many red beans which I got quite tired of it after a while :-( not worth for the price!! Sad cos expected more from Dalkomm

This was pretty good, but I felt that the croissant itself could have been more crisp! Should probably have toasted it at home, but I also wanted to have it fresh (heh). They were very generous with the frangipane filling, which was not too sweet and rather pleasant.

This was quite nice! It was pretty crisp, and they reheated it so it was warm, which made it taste even better. The frangipane was not too sweet, but it was dry bc it was only applied as a topping and not a filling. Nonetheless, it’s good enough for me to consider a repurchase!

This old school bakery is a childhood favourite! My mom’s usual order is a box of their pineapple tarts and assorted cakes.

This is my first time getting their coco tart, and I really liked it! The coco bits were finely chopped and not overly sweet, with a good tart crust - not super buttery and heavy, but light and a good blank canvas for the filling.

The pineapple tart has strongly pineapple bits which we enjoy. The crust can be a little more snappy/crunchy.

I’ll just put it out there - this is a decent dupe for backyard bakers’ (byb’s) brownies. There are some slight differences though, lemuel’s is fudgier, while byb’s is more cakey. I prefer byb’s! That said, this was nice too, and when heated up it was almost molten-ish but still holding its shape. I did find that there was an alkaline aftertaste though, which lingered uncomfortably for some time :(
