Strawberry watermelon cake
⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️ (more of a 4.2)
🍴Ever since trying @blackstarpastry’s famed rendition, have been searching for a good one in SG but without much luck. Thus, was highly excited when friends at Oh Deli arranged to send over their freshly made version.

Refreshing and light on the palette, this unique cake featured juicy and crunchy watermelon sandwiched between almond dacquoise and light rose-flavoured cream, topped with strawberries and chopped pistachios. Delightful mix with just the right level of sweetness (ie., not sweet!).

While the nutty almond sponge was slightly dry on day 1, it became more moist subsequently. Compared to the iconic cake, the rose flavour was more subtle and the cream on the thinner & runnier side (or perhaps it was the heat that melted it). Nonetheless, a delightfully enjoyable take on one of my favourite cakes that got gobbled up way too quickly in this household!

⚠️ Do note that they rotate their cakes in store, with this only available on a rare seasonal basis. But do consider checking the deli out for hearty breakfast and mains, along with gourmet meat, produce, and wines from Australia and Europe.
