AMAZING
1st SOOTY’S PANDAN CHIFFON CAKE V.2
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Waistless with minimal shrinkage from the cake pan walls. All in all, this cake had a much better rise compared to v.1.
2nd PANDAN CHIFFON SLICE V.2
Soots Cook Nook, Private
A fluffy yet moist confection properly infused with the botanical fragrance of 60 pandan leaves and delicately balanced with the coconutty aromas of the tropics. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
REALLY GOOD
3rd BREAD AHEAD’S ROCK CAKES
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Attempted to recreate an edible memory from Matthew’s (of Bread Ahead) childhood and perhaps that of several other generations. Like so many of @breadahead’s bakes that I’ve attempted, these did not disappoint. They were surprisingly scrumptious despite their rather down-to-earth preparation.
4th WALNUT CAKE SLICE
Bengawan Solo, Singapore
Light, buttery and a hint of walnutty.
5th GOLDEN CHEESE 黄金起司
Original Cake 原味本铺, Johor Bahru
Eggy, fluffy, bouncy Taiwanese-style castella cake that's all the rage in these parts.
6th CHOCOLATE WHISKEY CAKE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
This moist confection of a cake is deeply flavored with whiskey, coffee, black pepper and cloves.
7th BIRTHDAY CAKE
Pizza Fabbrica, Singapore
Personal cheesecake courtesy of the sweet folks @ Pizza Fabbrica.
8th PANDAN SUGEE BUTTER CAKE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Moist, buttery, slightly nutty cake with a hint of pandan (30 leaves worth). Might shoot for a more intensely-flavored version with a 60-leaf cake next time.
9th EGGLESS BUTTER CAKE
Mamma Shob’s Kitchen, Private Location
Can’t really go wrong with butter cake. Even the eggless kind, apparently.
10th ROSE PISTACHIO CAKE
Flowers in the Window, Johor Bahru
It’s rare to find good cake in these parts because they tend to be dry and crumbly but this was pleasantly moist, fluffy and flavorful. Despite the questionable flavor of rose in the mix, it and all the the things that were nice in this cake came together quite successfully.
11th EARL GREY LAVENDER CAKE
Flowers in the Window, Johor Bahru
Another winner, with the perfect balance of Earl Grey & Lavender. 👍
12th COFFEE PEANUT ROLL SLICE
POLAR PUFFS & CAKES - SGH, 1 Hospital Drive Block 7 Singapore General Hospital Singapore
Not enjoying this as much as I used to. Cake was a tad dry and the coffee buttercream was a bit bland.
13th EARL GREY LEMON & LAVENDER CAKE
Bloomsbury Bakers, Singapore
Pre-birthday cake of 2017 Earl Grey Cake | Lemon Cream Cream Frosting | Lavender Crumble
14th SUMMER BERRY BUCKLE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
2 large berry bags of freezer space cleared! And more berry than cake!
15th SOMEONE ELSE'S BIRTHDAY CAKE
Latest Recipe, 23 BEACH VIEW
It would've been impossible not to crash the birthday party of another party since we all shared the same buffet in the same room. This was for a young lady who was also gifted with a bouquet of what I imagine was a hundred roses. *I can only imagine it was pretty good since I wasn’t technically a guest and nobody in the room was throwing up.
16th LEMON CAKE
SWEE LEE SOCIAL CLUB, Singapore
Lemon pound cake from a bakery called Mother Dough.
17th ORIGINAL PLUM TORTE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Baked at 4 in the morn… #blackplums
18th CHESTNUT TORTE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Seemed appropriate for the season.
22nd MATCHA STEAM CAKE
Four Leaves The Star Vista, Singapore
It was like eating a sweet 🍵-flavored sponge with hints of adzuki.
27th WINTER BERRY ROSE CAKE SLICE
Hopscotch Bakery + Market, Champaign
Winter berry jam sandwiched between 2 layers of light, fluffy cake and frosted with a (not sickly) rose buttercream. I liked that the cake wasn’t dry this time.
28th TRIPLE CARMEL CAKE SLICE
Hopscotch Bakery + Market, Champaign
I think the caramel-colored buttercream was salted caramel and the green one was lavender + rose water. A promising ensemble but the cake was ultimately let down by its dryness. At any rate, happy day before National Cake Day!
29th BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP CAKE
Soots Cook Nook, Private
Bananas, cinnamon, allspice, molasses and brown sugar for an intense, fragrant, caramel-ly cake!
