Update: We shared the cakes and they were all so delectably good. I would definitely get cakes from this little store the next time I’m there. The photos don’t do them justice. My favourite was the creme brulee cake which I think was filled with yummy custard. It tasted a bit like a tart. The cakes were extremely creamy, but light at the same time.
I did a little searching and found out this is a tart not a cake. This is definitely the creamiest tart I have ever had. This tart is called La France and it is $5.00 Singapore dollars. It is prepared by Chef Yamashita who came up with a special tart base- a pear half surrounded by crème brûlée and topped off with apricot jam.
The Cake Story
A very thoughtful friend whom I will nickname Lucy, dropped by with these lovely cakes from Glace, a popular Japanese pastry shop at Icon Village – aren’t we lucky? Don’t they look divine? I noticed a queue at this cake shop and have been meaning to try the cakes and this was a nice surprise. They look too good to eat just yet, don’t they? The one that’s mint green is green tea tiramisu and Lucy says she loves it. I am eyeing the caramel custardy looking one. It actually looks a bit like creme brulee which I love.
