This bakery has been in Ang Mo Kio for a long time. They are popular for their make-to-order cakes where the bakers can customise the cake design to suit your fancy. I have been coming here to make cakes for my children birthdays for years.
At a lunch last weekend, the table next to mine was celebrating a birthday and they offered a slice of cake to the server, who ate it next to me and I asked if it was from Pine Garden, cos I recognised the Lychee Martini cake. The server said yes.
After lunch, I couldn’t resist myself and prompt drove over to Pine Garden to get a slice for myself.
I bought the Lychee Martini Cake and also spotted a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake, which I also bought.
Here’s the verdict:
- Lychee Martini Cake: My favourite flavour (other than Pulut Hitam cake). The soft sponge cakes have lychee martini flavour between them and topped with a lychee fruit. The flavour is good. Highly recommended!
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Crunch Cake: chocolate sponge cake with lots of peanut butter flavoured cream with crunchy caramel balls folded in the cream. Flavour was not bad, but the pricing of $3.60 for the cake is a little steep, as this is from a neighbourhood heartmall store. The look of the cake reminds me of the old-school cakes that you eat from my childhood days. Quite a few bakery are offering these, but they do come at a price.
The cakes are a little expensive, but I don’t mind paying for those that I like. Thus far, my favorites are the Lychee Martini Cake and Pulut Hitam Cake.
