K ki ケーキ

Tucked at a small corner of Ann Siang Hill is the little dröm stall. While checking out the cute artsy fartsy cameras and products by budding designers, have a piece of cake at K Ki! What a perfect way to enjoy a peaceful afternoon, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Kenneth and his wife, Delphine, were very hospitable. They were sharing how they would cycle to K Ki early in the morning to start baking and cycle home in the evening after a day’s work. How nice, doing something out of passion rather than the constant pursuit of financial stability. Maybe someday, I might be able to leave everything behind and pursue what I really like!

Antoinette $8.00

This is my favourite! A perfect yet unique combination of white chocolate cake with mango filling. I’m craving for this as I’m typing this entry!

Mona $8.00

Mona is good too. The cream is well textured and the layers together packs a punch. I like my cakes with different textured layers, not those that’s just plain sponge cake with lots of cream.

Strawberry Tart $6.50

K Ki’s strawberry tart fares decently. If only it had my favourite custard. Yums. K Ki’s cakes are original and even the most common strawberry tart available everywhere is done differently at K Ki!

Kinabaru $8.00

The lovely couple at K Ki really takes pride their creations that even the name of some cakes are original and actually have a story behind it! Once again, K Ki scores at the perfect layering combination here. Coconut mousse, passionfruit creme and lychee mousse. Kinabaru is a really light flavoured cake with the different layers going well with one another and yet not too overpowering. I like this cake second best, very close behind Antoinette. =)

Cafe Dumo $7.50

The cute name reminds me of the popular Domo-kun. If you realised, K Ki’s cakes are mostly light flavoured and Cafe Dumo is probably one of the few richer cakes that K Ki offers. This is no ordinary cake, worth the try if you do head down to K Ki at Ann Siang Hill.

Mont Blanc $8.50

I had my first Mont Blanc at K Ki. Having heard raved reviews about Mont Blanc, I was keen to find out how it tasted. It was really good! Though I haven’t been around to try other Mont Blanc cakes, I’m quite certain Kenneth did a great job there. This is another cake I’m going back to K Ki for!

I’ll definitely return to K Ki, real soon!

Obolo @ Joo Chiat

Oh obolo!

Obolo Degustation Set $13.90

First up all the way from Obolo Joo Chiat… Buche Cristal!

The cake was a sight to behold, so beautiful and cheerful! It would be so wasteful to spoil the beauty with our ruthless forks, oh wells, but let’s take the beauty into our taste buds. More under the class of spongecake/swiss-rolls than cake proper, the texture was so fluffy and by the time we reached the Ivoire mousse raspberry lychee gelee, it was such a refreshing experience with the sour tang of the raspberries taking over the taste of the Vanilla bean infused sponge cake base. And it was a welcome mix with the strawberry creme to complete it. By the time we were delighted by the cake, it was time for more with the Macarons perched on it! Almond and Ivoire flavoured. Yummy. The praline feuilletine base together with the gelee, Noel’s Christmas Collection @ Obolo is certainly not to be missed this season!

Macarons – Salty Caramel and Chocolate Hazelnut

Whoa! A hearty collection of Macarons were there for our picking! We went with Janice’s (the friendly staff there) recommendations of Salty Caramel and Chocolate Hazelnut! It was one of the best Macarons we’ve ever eaten in our limited experience. Yummy. As the fork pried in, a therapeutic crunch was emanated into the air. Fresh. Taking out a piece of the meringue shell together with the ganache in between, Salty Caramel was the star of the day, being one of the “Chef’s” recommendations. The caramel taste was un-gelat and so authentic, what’s there not to like is a cliched expression most applicable here.

And.. lastly all the way from Switzerland to the heartlandish Katong, Movenpick ice-cream.

Yum, of course it’s not a product of the cafe, but the combination of Movenpick Creme Brulee ice-cream with the macarons and cake from Noel’s collections, it was a powerful combination to take our breaths away. I would say Movenpick has the best Ice-cream out there hands down, with the Creme Brulee being so authentic and flavourful, first-class.

Just sit back, chill out with friends, take a magazine from the stands there. And complete it with a walk down Joo Chiat, memory lane.

We’ll definitely be back there for their specialty cheese cakes! Cheers. =)
