Strolling around a shopping mall with your friends and craving for some cheap sweets apart from the usual bubble tea and KFC’s egg tarts? Opened up by the Breadtalk group, The Icing Room has all the classic dessert favourites found in a restaurant at very affordable prices and in full portions, not to mention the 20% student discount (hurrah).
Macaroons - $1.50 each
Alas, what would classic tea time be without an array of multi-coloured macaroons. Although a little on the sweet side, the macaroons at the Icing Room would definitely hit the spot if you’re craving a quick sweet bite.
From the left, Blueberry Panna Cotta, Mango Panna Cotta, Macaron Ispahon, Lychee Jelly, and Strawberry Kirch Jelly. $3.50 each, $8.80 for three
With a whole range of Dessert Shooters for you to pick from, the petite shooters will attract the ladies’ attention for sure. My personal favourite was the one in the centre, the Macaron Ispahon, which had a great contrast in texture, from the crunch of the macaroon to the middle layer of cream, and finally the layer of jelly at the bottom.
The two on the right would be for those fans of the classic jelly, which had the flavours of strawberry and lychee infused into it, whilst the two on the left would be for those who are a fan of the more English-y Panna Cotta. There’s bound to be a Dessert Shooter that will be to your liking.
Mango and Blueberry Panna Cotta.
We like the left.
Crème Brûlée with berries - $4.80
A simplistic classic dessert, I’m always a fan of the good ol’ Crème Brûlée. The Icing Room brings you a very generous portion at a reasonable price, that would do great to satisfy your Crème Brûlée cravings if you get any. Smooth creamy vanilla custard with a crunchy layer of caramelized sugar on top, and scattered with berries. I’d like mine just a little more brûlée-d, but that’s just me being picky.
Lemon Cream Crumble - $3.50
Something that really caught my eye, the Lemon Cream Crumble was something I looked forward to taste. A zesty lemon cream coated the chunky crumble at the base of the cup, which really appealed to me more than the fine crumble that I was used to seeing in most desserts. The chunky crumble ensures that it could still be smothered in the lemon cream without getting soggy, and the scoop of vanilla ice cream just pulls the whole dessert together. Great price once again!
Double Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice-cream - $6.80
Essentially a Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, this cake is definitely big enough to be shared amongst two people, which would equate it to about $3.40 per person, making it oh-so-affordable like the other desserts! This would do well to satisfy those weird chocolate cravings in the middle of the day, as our cake oozed out warm chocolate, and didn’t disappoint us with a dry core.
Look at the chocolate flowing out.
