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.
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.
($2.80): perhaps, the most traditional of them all, but it was quite the throwback to the yesteryear
