Recommended: Sugar Buns
Overall: 7/10
(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)
Will come back? Yes for sugar buns (I’ve been back twice after my first taste and they’ve run out both time so come early)
What I ate:
(Sorry for the poor quality pictures I was in a rush to take a picture of each before people devoured all of it) and unfortunately they had run out of sugar buns.

Black forest – flourless almond sponge, cherry, bavarois cream, chocolate mousse
  • 7/10
  • This was very dark and luscious
  • Not too sweet
  • And the cherry gelee in the middle was a good component to cut through the richness

Peanut butter hedgehog
  • 6.75/10
  • People who love peanut butter would love this cake
  • The peanut butter flavour was intense
  • I wish there was some crunch to this cake

Classic tiramisu
  • 8/10
  • The coffee flavour was strong
  • The tiramisu was creamy and delicious
  • The ladyfingers were a bit to soggy for me
  • I wish the liquer flavour was stronger
  • Overall I enjoyed it

Coconut Chocolate bun
  • 7/10
  • The coconut chocolate was not to sweet
  • The cream inside was not stiff enough to hold the bun

Pistachio cake with Mousse (forgot the actual name)
  • 6.5/10
  • The pistachio cake was not fragrant and strong enough
  • The mousse part was forgetful
  • This cake was the most disappointing
Things to Improve on: Overall flavours
Summary: There cakes are okay and not too sweet. Some of the flavours are good others are lacking in thought.
