I love that the Red Velvet frosting is creamy smooth lightly sweet & pairs very well with the red velvet sponge layer.
Banana Walnut cake at S$3.00 per serving, 2 pcs for S$5.60. The fresh Del Monte banana is mashed, to it is added the crushed walnut & the batter. The mixture is then baked in the oven. I love that the cake has a generous dose of banana & walnuts to lend a fragrant natural banana flavor interspersed with crunchy nutty flavor from the walnut, yet not being overly sweet. You can really bite into bits of the banana as well as the walnut in this cake.
Lemongrass Coconut at S$3.50 per serving. The Founders grind the fresh lemongrass, add the fresh grated coconut meat, mix & bake it, then drizzled the lemongrass coconut cake with lemongrass syrup.
Rainbow Roll with Fruit cocktail is priced at S$2.00 per serving. This is a colored cake with 4 different color strips. The Founders bake the different color strip by strip, then spread out with a layer of fresh cream, followed by a layer of fruit cocktail, then roll it up like a swiss roll. I love the design of the Rainbow Roll as it is really colorful, & comes in 4 different pastel color shades of orange, purple, green & pink. The lighter pastel color look more naturally appealing & more appetising ( as I personally find those colors that are very dark colored very artificial & too stark bright). The sponge cake turn out to be delicious, soft mildly sweet with a cream inner layer interspersed with a generous dose of the fruit cocktail that lends a sweet tarty flavor.
