Wasn’t expecting myself to like this cake THIS much but something about the perfectly torched meringue and the tangy yuzu + cakey cake made me super happy while eating this. 🤩👅 pls get this cake to try (or give it to me tia 🤪)

• Orh Nee: 7/10
Was pretty hyped for this and I thought it’d be a 9 haha but we felt that it wasn’t as decadent as we’d like it. The yam paste was normal tbh but I appreciate the yam chunks that provided great texture.

• Goma Kinako Mochi Roll: 8/10
I love all 3 components in this cake but our roll was deformed and a lil smol 🥲. The cake itself didn’t scream GOMA but there was a hint of sesame in the cream and streusel. I’d totally just get the kinako mochi on top though keke.

This cake was really mousse-y too but the darkness of the Valrhona Guanaja really did an amazing job at cutting through all that richness. One thing though, I’d wish for more of that hazelnut dacquoise and feuilletine to provide more cronch!! 🤤

Okie disclaimer first: I’m not a fan of mousse-y cakes and this was a strawberry mousse cake, thus I found it really jelat. The saving grace was the centre of this cake which consists of some cronchy sunflower seeds, cream and elderflower jelly (which I really enjoy!).

Passionfruit lovers (like me) will be thrilled to to try this as the Passionfruit curd was not overly tart, and complemented the torched meringue on top. The almond tart was also crisp and held its shape well. 👌

Loved the combination of mascarpone mousse, strawberry compote and basil sponge in this pretty cake, as the amount of berry compote was generous enough to cut through the mousse, while the refreshing basil sponge elevated ✨the whole cake to a whole new level. There was also a biscuit at the bottom of this cake, which made it quite hard to cut through oops 🙂

Banana Walnut ($8): 8.5/10
I was never a walnut type of girl but this year, I’ve been trying so many amazing bakes and pastries with walnuts!!! So yes, I’m a changed girl now and I might be lowkey be bananas over walnuts for this eclair 🤪🤪 Say real though, I throughly enjoyed the creaminess of the pastry cream, and the cronchy pieces on top. 💯

Ispahan ($8.50): 8/10
I enjoyed this combi so much...the lychee and rose flavour were so distinct in their own way, yet they gel-ed together so nicely without being too perfume-y or artificial 👌👌

Strawberry Pistachio ($8): 7.5/10
I love how the nuttiness of the Pistachio came through, without being too overwhelming. However, the strawberry chunks were a lil too sour that day

Lychee White Peach ($8.50): 8.5/10
I love lychees and peaches, so this was a combi I really enjoyed having. The edible flowers are also so pretty 🥺!!

7.5/10: This was essentially shaved ice doused with a pleasant side of their homemade green tea syrup, which wasn’t too sweet and had a mellow matcha taste. There was also a scoop of vanilla ice cream, which added a good touch of milkiness to the shaved ice, but I found this a tad bit expensive. The fruits at the bottom of bowl was also really sour 🙃, so if you’d like to get this for the aesthetics, then go ahead!! HAHA

8/10: I wanted to opt for a good ol latte but this interesting item caught my eye. I was quite scared that it would turn out bad so I asked for the caramel to be served separately and I’m glad that I did so, as it allowed me to control the sweetness accordingly ☺️. The latte was smooth, and not too bitter or acidic 👌
