Got a bake box from @shesellsseashells earlier this year and love their bakes as usual! This box had Matcha & Yuzu Madeleine, Lemon Curd Madeleine, Black Sesame & Kinako Financier and a Matcha & Coconut Cookie (with dulcey and macadamia). My favourite was the black sesame and kinako financier, I really enjoyed the nutty flavours featured in this 😋 they opened a physical store this year and I hope to visit them soon!

The black sesame mochi had a chewy texture as well with a generous amount of filling in it. I would have liked a stronger black sesame flavour but it was still distinct.

Finally paid a visit to @breadandbutterbyxy's physical store and her bakes are still so good! Love how the buns were so fluffy and the sticky pecan bun wasn't too sweet plus the nuts gave it an extra crunch. The peanut butter brownie had a good peanut butter to brownie ratio with the brownie not being overly dense too. The goma and yuzu pound cakes were moist with light flavours while fragrant at the same time and the honey butter biscuit was crisp outside yet soft inside.

@puffsandpeaks has new donut flavours! These are kinako and gula melaka, black sesame and salt honey whip with peanut butter. Loved all of them especially the black sesame for the rich and black sesame flavour! The kinako gula melaka was a unique combination that worked better than I expected. Can't wait to order these again 😋

@hunghuatcakesandpastries offer different types of mooncakes in a variety of flavours that are handmade with ingredients made in-house! We got to try the Crispy Yam Mooncakes with and without yolk along with their Snowskin mooncakes in black sesame, blue pea white lotus, red bean with orange skin and white lotus with yolk flavours. We enjoyed these a lot, especially with how they were not too sweet. My favourites were the Crispy Yam Mooncakes mainly because I love yam and the white lotus with yolk snowskin mooncake!

If you are one that likes variety like me, they have mini mooncakes too! We had snowskin mooncakes in yam, green tea, durian and black sesame flavours. My favourite was the black sesame because there nutty flavour grows as you eat it.

We also had the baked mooncakes in golden jade (pandan), mixed nuts, Shanghai walnut mooncake and Pineapple mooncake. I liked the pandan flavour most because it was the most fragrant, the mixed nuts was good as well with a generous portion of nuts, the walnut mooncake had a cookie like texture so that was quite unique and the pineapple mooncake was buttery with pineapple paste in it too 😋

Read from here for those lazy to read the chunks above:
My favourite mooncakes are crispy yam, black sesame snowskin and pandan baked mooncake 🤗

These mooncakes currently go at early bird promotional prices valid for orders and payment made before 24 Aug. Check out their account and DM them on Fb or IG to order!

Thank you @hunghuatcakesandpastries for sending these over! ☺️

Came back to @asaru.studio for the new desserts and I enjoyed our visit here again a lot 😌

Uiro, a traditional steamed cake with sweet bean, matcha and red bean layers. They were slightly dense with a chewy texture and each flavour was distinct while complementing the other flavours at the same time. This is said to be very rare even in Japan because it's so traditional, there isn't much information of where is originated from but we found out that you can probably get it in some of the traditional teahouses in Kyoto. We had this with matcha and the slightly bitter notes helped to balance the sweetness of the wagashi.

We got to choose between soba cha and coffee next, I had soba cha with my warabi mochi. The soba cha was so fragrant and it was the best soba cha I had in my life (I haven't had that much soba cha so I'm not a good gauge but I loved it). The warabi mochi was prepared fresh and served warm with fragrant kinako powder. The warabi mochi was a lot softer than what we usually have and it was delicious too!

Can't wait to be back for more in the future! ☺️

@martabak.sg opened a new stall in @funan.sg and they sell martabak in smaller portions so you don't have to stuff yourself with the entire thing 😅 I had ordered from their online shop before this and enjoyed it so we decided to head to the shop to check it out!

We had the chocolate cheese, pandan cheese and the chicken martabak. The sweet martabak were very decadent and rich but nice in the smaller portions. The chicken martabak telur was crisp on top and packed with ingredients. They had some teething issues when we went during their opening weekend and we ended up having a one for one wait time together with our one for one martabak manis so hopefully they've been sorted out so I can go back to try their mains!

The goma choux was alright, I would have preferred a stronger goma flavour in the filling. The chocolate on top had a smooth texture too.

@sinpopobrand did a menu revamp earlier this month and switched up many items while keeping the old favourites. There are quite a few fusion items now and they can be very unique too! Here's what we had:.

The Gula Melaka Tiramisu ($13) is a dessert unique to Sinpopo, with gula melaka agar agar and egg white, topped with house-made sabayon. The gula melaka and coconut were very fragrant and it was a refreshing change from the usual tiramisu.

This was a meal that we really enjoyed and I would want to go back again to try the other new items! Thank you @sinpopobrand for all the food and Wendy for the warm hospitality! 🤗

The Sinpopo Kopi Jelly ($12) has a caffeine kick with its strong espresso jelly and a slightly milder version of cappuccino jelly too. The espresso jelly goes well with the vanilla bean cream too.

Recently noticed @chowzanplq1 while looking for dessert in @payalebarquarter and they have a wide range of desserts to choose from. After quite a lot of thinking, I had the black sesame paste with tangyuan and I liked how the texture and flavour was just right, it was fragrant but not too thick or too sweet too. The tangyuan had a lot of peanut filling and the skin was rather thin as well. I had this with tea that is served with a pot so it is quite a good deal! Shall try other desserts here another time 😋

Pandan Coconut Brulee Cheesecake is a fusion of pandan cheesecake and creme brulee and I liked the balance of flavours plus how it wasn't too sweet as well
