Excellent service, delightful Carrot Cake!

I've been wanting to try their Summertime Carrot Cake for quite some since it was constantly rated as one of the best Carrot Cakes in Singapore. When I first arrived at the shop, I was initially disappointed because I thought the Carrot Cake was sold out! The entire tray at the display counter was empty! Luckily the staff told me there was more in the kitchen. I guess they need to replenish their cakes faster. 

For $3.90 a slice, I finally got to try it and I was impressed. The Summertime Carrot Cake was moist with added crunch from the walnuts and raisins inside. I also liked the sliced walnuts at the exterior. There was a slight cinnamon aftertaste after each bite, which was divine. I liked that it wasn't too strong. The cream cheese frosting was also good and smooth at room temperature.

To add on, I really like that the slice of cake wasn't too large (like those served in Coffee Bean or most other cake shops) so the serving size was just right for me and I didn't feel like I was forcing myself to eat. Every bite was pure enjoyment. Given the size per slice, I guess that also explains why the price for a slice of cake here is generally lower than elsewhere. Affordable and value-for-money! Overall, well done.

What left me the deepest impression though, was the personable and warm service by the lady at the counter. She had a very warm smile which made me feel extremely welcome. Kudos! 5 stars for the service!

As for ambience, it's actually a very small shop and there's only a mini sitting area near the entrance which can accomodate 3 people at most. For those purchasing just a few slices (or a slice) of cake, it's thus recommended that you takeaway. There's many cute, small little figurines at the counter which got my attention and kept me busy while waiting for my cakes to be packed for takeaway!

Will try the Red Velvet Cake the next time.

Cakes are worth the trek!

Even if you’re not a fan of cakes (which I wasn’t before), you should give the cakes at Room for Desserts a try! Their Summertime Carrot Cakes are addictive – always fresh, moist yet light with generous amounts of walnuts and raisins. I usually skip frosting on other cakes but I could easily

Known for their red velvet cake as well as having one of the best carrot cakes in Singapore (acclaimed by some), it is no surprise that they run out of both rather quickly. After

Too high expectations?

I have heard about the carrot cake here being rated the best in Singapore by The Straits Times. Also, I have chanced upon many positive reviews about it. Perhaps, these have caused my expectations to be too high and I didnt think it was THAT good.

I find the cake a bit too soft for my liking. But I
