Lovely Lychee Martini cake

The Lychee Martini cake is surprisingly soft, like the gentle pale pink color it comes in. The layers of cream around it makes this cake like a cloud of cream fluff, and it melts deliciously in the mouth redolent of rich lychee flavor. The sponge cake within comes in layers of this lychee-flavored cream as well as real lychee flesh. The cake is cottony soft, comes in rich lychee flavor and is richly infused with martini as well - perfect for someone like me who prefer heavier flavors.

For a taste of nostalgia

To see photos, please go to http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/11/pine-gardens-cake.html

For a "traditional bakery", I was surprised that the cakes at Pine Garden's Cakes are that fluffy. They were a lovely airy contrast to the heavy buttercream layering. It may not be the most refined of confectionery, but they do offer a good sweet dose of nostalgia.

We had:

1) My favourite by far, the Pulut Hitam ($2.80) was a butter-creamed twist on a local dessert. The black glutinous rice pudding topping was perfectly nuanced. 

2) Although I generally don't like orange accents in my chocolate, I didn't hate the Orange Zest Chocolate ($2.70). The orange was delicate, and light, without being saccharine like it usually does in most orange-based desserts. 
 
3) Mango Passionfruit ($3.50): lively and tart, tinged with sour elements 
 
4) Lychee Martini ($2.80): very light. So light it tasted more like a vanilla buttercream cake. I could hardly taste any alcohol in this. 
 
5) Blackforest ($2.80): perhaps, the most traditional of them all, but it was quite the throwback to the yesteryear

Pine Garden's Cake Shop Ang Mo Kio

Cake Pictures : http://mrupupup.blogspot.sg/2014/04/pines-gardens-cake-shop-ang-mo-kio.html
Mrupupup loves to eat and could not resist the old school cakes from Pine Garden's Cake Shop at Blk 529 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10. This round Mrupupup had their yummy Pulut Hitam mousse sponge cake. The Pulut Hitam sponge cake was one creamy dessert cake which hits the palate just right to satisfy the cravings for  traditional dessert and cake at the same time. Pretty clever creation this Pulut Hitam cake (about $2.50).

 The other cake was the orange zest chocolate cake, Mrupupup loved its match of orange and chocolate all in one ($3.10). This cake was not as moist as the other Pulut Hitam cake. It was nice though and pretty good old school cake.

 Mrupupup could not resist all the cakes and managed to take pictures of the cakes: cartoon cakes, old style cakes, black forest cake, lychee martin cake (do try this very interesting flavour!), many more! The prices are good and value for money, not more than $6 per slice.

Lychee Martini whole cakes

I think Pine Garden's cakes have no quality control. Have ordered the Lychee Martini cake at least 5times for birthdays and 3 out of 5 times the cakes taste great(the first, second and fourth purchase). And the other two times the cake tasted awful. The earlier one was abit bland, and the later one has a weird bitter and sour taste to it which is off and not valid for martini or lychee taste. Have been trusting them to improve thus the continuous support. So do hope you all can improve on this as the Lychee Martini cake was really tasty the other times and hope it will always be. Will go down for another visit soon to test before deciding if to re-purchase continuously for my 18th this year (: thank

Creative Cakes that bring out local flavors

For full review and more photos, please visit http://thumbsforfood.blogspot.sg/2013/12/next-door-deli-pine-gardens-cake.html

Taking a closer look at the Glass Displays situated at the entrance of the shop, you will realize that the bakery actually has very special creations! Besides the usual old school cream cakes, they have New Age creations such as Bailey's Chocolate Crunch, Nuttymisu and much more. It even has local-flavored cakes such as Gula Melaka Avocado cake and Pulut Hitam cake.

We decided to try two of it's popular cakes. The first is the Lychee Martini Cake. Despite its New Age flavor, the cake is made into an Old School Swiss Roll like shape. The Lychee Martini is light in flavor, where it's alcohol taste is rather non-existent. The cake is not too sweet and the cream is not too oily. We were quite pleased with how the cream and sponge complemented each other. They even have Lychee Martini Log Cake for sale during this Christmas Period. 

We decided to try the Avocado and Gula Melaka cake as I was really quite piqued by the Avocado flavor! I got to say, it is really suprisingly good how they made the avocado cream. It felt natural in flavor by being not too sweet. My personal favorite out of the two cakes we tried.

We find that Pine Garden's Cake offers really creative creations and is definitely a must-try for cake lovers. It is not as grand or visually palatable as many established cake houses but, it's creativity and unique flavors makes it interesting and refreshing.
