Yummy Cakes, Breads and Pastries

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.   Try it!

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 "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
