great little cakes at this popular cakery in millenia walk – so popular, in fact, that they’ve now expanded twice their original size. and for good reason, I think – if the cakes I had were anything to go by, they know their desserts.
and it’s almost friday, people – here’s to giving the weekend a head start!
I finally managed to catch this place when it wasn’t maniacally filled with sweet tooths (like mine) – probably because it was about 5 minutes before they closed the cashier. it’s very good cake, so it’s going to be an easy review: two cakes – a chocolate dome, and a opera-style one (sorry for the lack of titles, but hey, that’s what photos are for!)
both were surprisingly well done (surprising for hype doesn’t always translate to skill) – neat clean layers, crispy pâte feuilletée or biscuit layers playing contrast to the soft, not-too-sweet chocolate mousse/ ganache layers, and prettily shiny glazes to top everything off.
I like that there’s a good mix of chocolate and other-than options – which span the spectrum from cheesecake to eclair. but these two were plenty lovely, good portions for a post-dinner treat, and very much worth ordering again.
service is young but helpful and smiley, and the space is scandinavian white-and-wood and beautiful – clean, neat lines and pretty little desserts that aren’t cheap but plenty satisfying, this place is a good one for some post-meal (or actual meal, why not) indulgence.
