Cake Avenue Turns Savoury-Looking Dishes Into Delectable Sweet Desserts
It was our first time to Cake Avenue and as its name rightly suggests; it is da place for wonderfully crafted cakes that not only look pretty but also Instagram worthy as well. Born out of the passion to excite customers with beautiful and playful cakes, owners Natalie and Chuan Sheng Wong have come a long way since setting up their first humble outlet in 2000.
From making birthday cakes designed to look like Bak Chor Mee to anniversary cakes that looked like branded handbags, Cake Avenue makes the impossible possible with their latest all-new dessert menu (created by Cake Avenue's Head Pastry Chef E.T. Yew) that is designed to mimic the look and feel of classic savoury diner foods such as hamburgers, corndogs, nachos and alphabet soup.
My Personal Opinion of the All-new Dessert Menu by Cake Avenue's Head Pastry Chef E.T. Yew
Honestly, I have a sweet tooth and I never fail to leave some stomach space for desserts. After what seems like endless servings of desserts, I literally died a happy man with an overdose of sugar in my bloodstream. Out of the 6 dessert items served, my favourite is the Nachos Dulces (SGD$12.90) and it is basically a tex-mex nachos lookalike dish that includes crispy flatbread 'nachos' packed with toppings such as chocolate mousse ‘refried beans’, strawberry compote ‘salsa’, julienned peach ‘cheese’, and pistachio ice cream ‘guacamole’. Sure, the Nachos Dulces might seem a little like rojak but I really like the fruity, nutty, and crunchy combination!
If quirky is your middle name, you should try the Diner Slider and Fries (SGD$15.90). I swear it is the most mind-boggling dessert that I ever had. Featuring two slider-sized burgers, each comprising of a dark chocolate ice cream burger patty sandwiched between vanilla butter cake buns; the dish is served with a side of warm fries made up of vanilla cake. To top it off, the citrusy passionfruit puree ‘mustard’ and tangy raspberry puree ‘ketchup’ made the whole setup look completely like legit burgers and fries.
As for the other desserts that I had, I shall keep mum and leave it a surprise for you to find out how they taste like. After all, with ample dining space and a cosy ambience, Cake Avenue gives you the best opportunity for you to jio all your friends down for some adventurous get-together.
Should you be planning a Christmas party at home or the office, you too can usher in the festive cheer with Cake Avenue's takeaway options. Prices for the Christmas Set Menus range from SGD$67 to SGD$172 and ala-carte selections are available as well.
Whether it is a sweet dessert like the log cake or a savoury dish like the chicken lasagna, there are plenty of choices to choose from and Cake Avenue's halal-certified too.
Do note that a minimum of 3 days advance notice is required for all takeaway bookings so I highly recommend that you start planning early.
