Cream & Custard's pretty-as-a-picture Strawberry Watermelon Cake (from $48 for 500g, $7.80 a slice) is a truly unique dessert. The almond dacquoise layer pairs well with the light-as-air rose-infused cream, while the thick watermelon slice in the middle adds a burst of sweet freshness. It is a medley of flavours that thankfully complements, not competes, with one another. If you're only intending to get a slice for an intimate celebration, come early to snag a piece — we hear each group/ table/ family is only allowed to order three slices! Alternatively, the Lychee Rose Cake (from $48 for 500g, $7.80 a slice) is a crowd pleaser — its delicate lychee mousse is sandwiched between layers of moist rose sponge cake to create the perfect blend of floral and fruity.
