Room for Dessert was started by a group of baking enthusiasts who wanted to share their passion for cakes. The house specialty and signature Summertime Carrot Cake is simply irresistable, and the Red Velvet Cake is another best-selling item. All their cakes are baked using only fresh ingredients, so you'll always get a great-tasting cake. They offer novelty cakes customized for any occasion. You can check out the different variety of cakes and desserts from their site.

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.

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 just eat the cream cheese frosting on its own. By tubfuls. Many of their other cakes (e.g., Chocolate Banana Cheesecake, Green Tea Tiramisu) are equally delicious (the only one which I’m not too hot on is the Red Velvet cake - still don’t ‘get’ the Red Velvet craze)   My only grievance with RFD is the fact that the cakes are only available in the shop itself! I usually order the cakes (via email) to bring to gatherings and self collect them. They’ve recently moved from Waterloo to a location near City Square Mall (on Somme Road)… the new location took me a while to find but I eventually found it. Fortunately, my favorite mouth-watering cakes are still there and are as yummy as ever J
