Have been noticing that coconut seems to be a popular flavour for Christmas cakes this year! Sheraton Towers’ Ivory Delight Log Cake features the same, with soft and fragrant pandan sponge layered with yam paste and coconut mousse. Enjoyed this! It was mildly sweetened, tasty, and serves as a light dessert option that’s good to pair with your Christmas roast meats and feasts.

Got our hands on @curatedculture_sg x @guiltfreefoodsg’s Christmas gift box!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They’re both big on gluten free and healthier options, with Curated Culture’s probiotic teas & Guilt Free Food Sg’s bakes. Their Christmas collab features each box with 2 teas and a choice of bake - a pair of Mochi Muffins or Vegan Chocolate Cookies which aims to satisfy the sweet tooth cravings with reduced sugar in the recipes (actual taste was sweeter than I expected!). The mildly sweet and lightly fizzy probiotic teas are all natural with no extra bad stuff added in, only lots of probiotics that’s good for your gut! Their green teas and black teas are tasty.

Had @dilutedcoke the first time a long while back and really enjoyed her bakes!! Happy to hear that she’s having a popup at Baker X in Orchard Central, till 13 November.

Got to try some of the items from her Baker X menu, but she has more items available and will be changing up her menu mid-way. Here’s her Pistachio Tart, Matcha Yuzu Salted Caramel Tart, Black Sesame & Yuzu Sando, Earl Grey Pecan Sando! Always love that while her bakes are lightly sweetened, flavours are not compromised. It’s difficult to pick a favourite, but I was most surprised by the Earl Grey Pecan Sando - by how nicely the maple pecan paste when with the earl grey, even though I’m not usually a fan of this tea. Her tarts have such a lovely buttery tart crust!

These were sweeter and heavier than we’d prefer, would be nice to up the salt ratio for a better balance. We preferred the Berry Good Raspberry brownies much more. More order details over at @bakesflouryou.

Super duper fudgy brownies from @bakesflouryou! Was very pleasantly surprised by the Berry Good Raspberry brownies. They were studded with a pretty generous amount of raspberries all around, and were chocolatey, fruity, with a distinct tartness that made it easy to enjoy. More order details at @bakesflouryou.

Newly launched Minions doughnuts at Kripsy Kreme for a limited time period. The minion designs of Bob, Otto and Stuart are all covered in a banana glaze, filled with chocolate fudge and has white chocolate eyes on top. Found the banana glaze quite artificial unfortunately, and the filling could be a lot less sweet.

Super interesting combination here - you have burrata soft serve, tomato and strawberries jam with a dash of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Thoroughly enjoyed this!

An Açaí Affair opened a new branch in Bukit Timah, just a walking distance from Tan Kah Kee station. Their new space sits along the stretch of shophouses just next to Coronation Plaza, and it has a nice cozy sitting area. We popped by this morning for their opening 1 for 1 promotion and it was limited to the medium and large sizes of 2 flavours - the Triple A and Nutty Party.

Always enjoy the generous amounts of toppings from their acai bowls and it satisfies the sweet craving without being overwhelming.

Haven’t had burnt cheesecakes in a super long time until recently, when we got to try Mad ‘Bout Cheese’s by owner-chef of The Social Outcast. It’s creamy, rich and not too sweet. Could be a tiny bit more molten, but we enjoyed it anyway! We had the classic, but there’s a hojicha version too.

More order deets on @madaboutcheese!

Durian pasta? 😂 This is pasta shaped mao shan wang gelato, with vanilla cream, coconut cream and coconut flakes that gave texture. Would recommend to have this shared as the the durian gelato is very rich, while the sweetness and creaminess gets quite heavy. It melts pretty fast, so dig in quickly upon serving.

This milkshake was creamy and smooth with a thick consistency. However, we found it to taste more milky, while the durian flavour is much lighter. Make sure to mix the shake thoroughly to get the durian flesh on the bottom. It’s quite heavy as a whole, so best to share it with a friend.

Lots of durian desserts from Pang Zi Durian, a neighbourhood durian speciality cafe! They’ve been serving up durian puffs and mousse, a range of durian and non-durian ice creams, and now launched 3 new desserts - Durian Milkshake, Mao Shan Wang Spaghettieis and Durian Sticky Rice.

Our favourite was this Durian Sticky Rice - the rice was served warm and was soft, chewy and fragrant. It’s paired with coconut cream and a generous portion of durian flesh. We liked that it satisfies the durian craving but yet not too sweet.
