The Audacious Cakery – CLOSED

*Invited Tasting*

Cake cake cake cake cake galore! I couldn’t decide on which irresistible cake photo to put up first so I decided to put up a group shot first! And that is the dilemma you will face when you step into The Audacious Cakery! All of the cakes look so exquisite and mouth watering! It was lucky we got the opportunity to sample it all, or I should have a hard time choosing.

There’s Sharryl Ng, co-founder and Executive Pastry Chef of The Audacious Cakery and her husband on the left of the photo. I love meeting people who have great passion for the food that they create. When food, or cakes in this case, are made with love, short cuts and mediocre ingredients are not used in the name of profits. I could never imagine myself selling stuff I didn’t believe in.

The Audacious Cakery bakes it cakes and pastries daily on site and to maintain its quality and
freshness, a limited quantity of each product is produced each day.

Strangers’ Reunion Cafe

Strangers' Reunion - (7)

When I first saw the name “Strangers’ Reunion”, I did a double take. But times have changed. Strangers’ Reunion is hardly strange when you compare that to Chye Seng Huat Hardware, which is neither a hardware store or related to Chye Seng Huat, whoever he may be. I wonder if he’s still alive actually. And just in case you were wondering, Chye Seng Huat Hardware is a cafe, opened by the people of Papa Palheta! They’re closing their Hooper Road store, so you can only catch them at Tyrwhitt Road. Woe betide all those living in the Bukit Timah area.

Strangers’ Reunion is very small! Be prepared to SQUEEZE‘

Strangers' Reunion - Red Velvet Cupcake

I didn’t eat this, but I took a picture of it because I thought it was so eye catching and pretty! It’s amazing how people can wolf down cakes made of beetroot yet they can’t imagine drinking beetroot juice. For the record, I LOVE beetroot juice, and I would highly recommend it to everyone for its health properties.

Chef Icon Nature Bakery

After lunch at the railway station, we decided to have a cuppa nearby. We decided to go to Highlander along Kampong Bahru Road, which is very near the railway station. Highlander has really nice coffee and chocolate mousse cake. Unfortunately, it was closed for the Vesak Day holidays so we backtracked and stopped at Chef Icon Nature Bakery a few shophouses away.

I had always thought that Chef Icon was just a bakery selling takeaway items, but today I found out that it has a seat-in section as well. Behind the counter, there is a recessed room with a few cafe tables and chairs. We were the only customers just after lunch so we had the entire room to ourselves which was very pleasant. I loved the small cafe area because it was just so snug and cosy.

We ordered a cafe latte as well as an iced-chocolate. The prices are really reasonable. The cafe latte was only $3.50 while the iced-chocolate was only $4. The iced-chocolate was made using real chocolate flakes and not the usual sugar laden chocolate syrup.

Chef Icon also has a lot of cakes on offer, best viewed at the Chef Icon’s website. The Chocolate Travona cake with its glistening exterior looked absolutely decadent and sinful. Too bad they didn’t have slices on offer or I would have surely ordered one.
