20 layers of thin handmade crepe skin layered with blended mao shan wang durian purée - this is the MSW Durian Mille Crepe Cake from The Durian Bakery! It leans more sweet and is rich.

I haven’t had many crepe cakes cause I’m not a huge fan, but we did enjoy this a lot! Layers were done very nicely thin and they don’t add any additional cream, just pure durian purée. More deets on @thedurianbakerysg on IG!

Fan of traditional baked mooncakes? Old Seng Choong has new creations this year with both classic and contemporary flavours. Their Four Heavenly King (四大天王) set has:

• White Lotus Paste with Yolk Blend
• Black Truffle Red Lotus Paste with Bakwa
• Taro with Pumpkin
• White Lotus Paste with Olive Kernel

Really enjoyed these. Our favourite was the fun savoury-sweet bak kwa that’s finished with black truffle oil, also a returning favourite from last year.

Also, how pretty is their vibrant peach and blue mooncake box! In gold embossed words on top, it says 海上升明月,天涯共此时 - symbolising reunion and a time when family and loved ones rekindle conversations together. Definitely going to repurpose this ✨

Burnt Ends’ doughnuts for the weekend! If you’re as indecisive as me, they have the ‘Pick Your Own Doughnut Box’ where you get to pick 5 out of the 8 flavours. We went with the new Smoked Japanese Yuzu, Iranian Pistachio, Lemon Meringue, Nutella and Passionfruit.

Was very long ago when we last had these, and happy they were just as satisfying as we remember. Doughnuts were pillowy soft with a lightly sugared exterior, and what I liked best was that they aren’t as oily - so it’s much easier to enjoy more at a go!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The new Smoked Yuzu was such a nice surprise. It was generously filled and well balanced in both its sweetness and tartness, along with a pleasant smokiness. Not sure why though, but the lemon curd filling in the Lemon Meringue one was much less compared to the others. We pre-ordered our box and did the pickup from their Dempsey bakery & highly recommend you do this.

Mooncake season is back! Raffles Hotel continues their annual creations of handcrafted snow-skin mooncakes with 2 fun new flavours - Baileys Chocolate Truffle ($86), and Butterfly Pea Gin with Pandan and Lemongrass ($118) - a collaboration with Brass Lion Distillery as tribute to the hotel’s 135th anniversary.

Other returning flavours this year are the Earl Grey Tea and Pearl ($86) - earl grey tea-infused milk chocolate ganache and dark chocolate coated puff cereal pearls, Yuzu and Osmanthus Truffle ($86), and the signature Champagne Truffle ($88) that I know are many of my friends’ favourite! It has white lotus seed paste and a core of white chocolate truffle spiked with champagne.

Reservations are open from now till 21 Aug on their website, or pop by their Raffles Mooncake Booth at North Bridge Road Atrium in Raffles Singapore from now till 10 Sept for walk-in purchases.

Inspired by the local dessert, Bo Bo Cha Cha, La Levain came up with the Bobochacha Croissant that has an interesting filling of sweet potato and yam cubes with coconut mochi. I wasn’t a fan of the flavour combination here, but enjoyed the flakiness of the croissant. Eyeing to try their Hojicha Mochi Croissant in future.

Thank you @lalevainsg for having us & @burpple for the kind invite ✨

Sweet or savoury, La Levain has quite a huge range of pastries and bakes to choose from, including a number of unique creations, like Margherita Danish, Pandan Kaya Cruffin and the Bo Bo Cha Cha Croissant. From what I got to try, my favourite was the Burnt Cheese Croissant! I liked that the burnt cheese filling was creamy and sufficiently cheesy, but not overwhelming, so it’s very easy to finish on your own. Definitely recommend to warm them up to get the crisp and flaky layers.

Finally trying these pretty eclairs! We were in the East and got to use the 1-for-1 Burpple Beyond deal at their Jewel outlet - we got 4 of them for the price of 2. They sell out pretty fast on the weekends, so it’s good to check their stories for the available flavours before heading down.

We picked 2 classic flavours, the Ispahan ($8.50) and Dark Chocolate ($8), as well as 2 seasonal ones, the Paris Brest ($8.50) and Mango Banana ($8.50). Tbh, we didn’t think they are worth the steep price tag, but it’s not too bad a try with the Beyond deal. Thought the pastry itself was quite thick and a touch dry. We enjoyed the Ispahan one most for the fragrant and mildly sweet rose mascarpone cream, paired with lychee bits and raspberries and an almond marzipan.

There’s currently only 3 dessert options on Lumbre’s menu, but both that we tried were impressive! Their tiramisu had very well-balanced layers and a good kick of alcohol.

Lumbre’s rendition of the French toast was amazing! It had a lightly crisp exterior and a super fluffy soft texture within. All paired with a scoop of rum and raisin ice cream.

Flavours are of quite a variety here, like Korean Strawberry Chamomile, Apple Strudel and Banana Nut Crunch (that we heard tastes like the Binggrae banana milk). Took a while before we decided on Pu’er Milk Tea with Dark Chocolate Swirl, Matcha Mochi and Mango Passionfruit with a classic waffle.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Though the scoops were on the sweeter side, thought the flavours were done quite nicely. Pity that we didn’t get the mochi bits in the matcha scoop and it was a bit icy, but we did enjoy the matcha notes. Pu’er could be stronger in its flavour in the first scoop. Waffle had a strong buttery fragrance and is the sort that is denser inside but not cakey, and with a slight crisp on the outside. I won’t specially come by, but if you’re in the area, it’s a pretty decent spot.

Single scoops are $4.20 each, a double is at $7.80, while the classic waffle is an add on of $5 and the chocolate version is at $6.

Thank you @minusdegreesg for having us & @cafehoppingkids for the invite! ✨

This was a delightful piece. It tasted much lighter than it looks, with a very thin chocolate shell on the outside, holding creamy mascarpone, basil and a slightly tangy-sweet strawberry compote on the inside. Enjoyed that it wasn’t too sweet and was pretty nicely balanced in all the flavours.

There’s 1 for 1 here with Burpple Beyond for a couple of different deals like mains, pastry + coffee, etc.
