A very small place, nice staff with decent coffee. The spiced carrot cake (S$5.90) was too creamy and sweet for my liking. Hummingbird cake (S$5.90) is one of the hot seller, it's moist and unique flavour of bananas, pineapples, coconut and a perfume of cloying sweetness. Sweet tooth lover, you'll him with delight in every bite! The red velvet cheesecake was sold out so we op for the cupcake (S$3.80). The crimson-hued treat is dense and not-too-sweet. Strawberry tofu cheesecake (S$5.90) adorned with fresh strawberries encased in jelly was the perfect choice for me. Not too sweet, lighter texture and luscious. continue reading

For full reivew: http://molly-mia.blogspot.sg/2014/11/mias-review-cake-spade.htmlI first stumbled onto Cake Spade after a google search of "cake cafes near tanjong pagar" due to a pretty sudden cake craving while waiting for T at the mrt station. And subsequently, I returned with A recently for a quick cake fix. Located around Orchid Hotel, I have to be honest to say that Cake Spade is a cafe so small and humble looking, with just 6 seatings in the interior and a couple more humbly plain looking tables and chairs laid out on the outside, that you probably will just walk right past it without a second look or the slightly recognition that that's a friggin awesome cake cafe right there. Chinese Apple Pomegranate Green TeaI first saw this selling at Cedele and instantly got attracted to the pretty bottles! But due to the price (it was about $4.50 or so), I didn't want to buy it then for I tend to spend less on a pick-and-go as compared to a cafe-hopping trip. So yup, tried it at Cake Spade instead. But frankly speaking, judging from the fact that you probably will not be keeping the bottle after consuming the beverage, the price tag does not justify the purchase at all.Nutella Fudge Crumble - $4.50A layer of fudge and nutella sandwiched between a buttery short crust pastry and a layer of crumbs! Sounds yummy, eh?And to show how runny the fudge-nutella layer is.First bite, heavenly! The bottom crust tasted like an exceptionally short (buttery and crumbly) shortbread and the top layer of crumbs added just the right amount of crunchiness oomph up the overall texture of this decadent treat!But as you slowly polish the entire bar off the plate, things might get a little difficult as the taste is way too rich, both the chocolate-nutty richness of the filling and the buttery fragrance of the bottom and top layers just made it too jerlat (strong, overpowering) for me.Best to visit with a friend (or two) and share a few other choices of goodies together so as to not experience a sweet-richness overkill.Oreo Cookie Brownie - $3.20Come on, oreo cookies, brownie, and a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. What more can you ask for?The brownie was rich, chocolatey and very dense. I remembered it was a little too dry and dense for my liking and the oreo cookie were somehow, too soft and soggy. Would have been a perfect match made in heaven, but oh well, it somehow fell short of my expectation, which I have to admit that I might have unknowingly set them a little too high?Red Velvet Cake - $5.90Of course, with T around how can we not have red velvet cake? Look at the moist layer of red sponge cake and pretty swirls of cream cheese icing on top!But I didn't really try out the taste, for I'm really not a fan of red velvet (mostly due to the cream cheese icing).And on my 2nd visit with A, I got myself a cup of Iced Latte due to the hot weather.The coffee was just so-so, and quickly got washed down when the ice started to melt.Chocolate Blackout Cake - $5.90A classic chocolate cake with moist chocolate sponge cake and iced with rich and smooth chocolate ganache.This cake is truly decadent and is a must try for all chocolate-addicts out there. The sponge layer is (obviously) moist and soft, and the ganache velvety smooth and rich. But once again, the taste can be pretty jerlat even for a chocolate-lover like me, so sharing with fellow chocoholic friends is highly recommended.Lastly, Strawberry Tofu Cheesecake - $5.90Yeah of course, how can we miss out their signature cake?And with just one bite, both A and I nodded our heads and said, "Yummy!" Worthy of the signature tag indeed! The cheesecake was truly of an almost tofu-like consistency, super smooth and finely textured, which literally melts away in your mouth. Topped with quite a generous chunk of fresh strawberries encased in sweetened jelly, this is a remarkably light and refreshing cheesecake. A pleasant surprise indeed, for I've always feel that cheesecakes are the most jerlat cake of all. continue reading

I've seen a lot of photos from Kate Spade and I so happened to chance upon this dessert shop so I went to try their recommended and highly raved strawberry tofu cheese cake ($5.90). The tofu cheesecake was incredibly soft and smooth, just like tofu and the cheese flavour was light. If you do not really fancy cheesecakes with strong cheese flavours, perhaps you can try this out. The strawberries on top were a tad sour but were neutralized by the lightly sweetened jelly. The softness of the cake also complemented the crumbly base well. Overall, I find it overrated. Once a try is enough for me. continue reading

Visit http://www.umakemehungry.com/2014/06/cake-spade.htmlEveryone knows about the brand of the handbag "Kate Spade" and there is one cake shop located in Tanjong Pagar with a similar pronunciation that goes Cake Spade. With such a close name to the branded handbag, I thought it was really up to the trend.The shop space is rather small with not more than 5 tables in its air conditioned environment and has a squeezy walkway. However those who wish to enjoy the cake on the spot may get to choose the tables just located in front of the shop.Not only the name that is in trend, they have fortune cats toy on display over at the cashier counter.I had chosen to take away as it was real crowded with no table available. My cakes was packed into the box by the friendly staff on duty. The box quality was good and durable.We were caught in a dilemma of those cake varieties available and decided we would just have 2 as we were rather full after our dinner.The chocolate blackout was rather a classic looking one whereby it was baked with 3 layers of moist dark chocolate sponge and iced ice with rich velvety chocolate ganache. Both stick and sticky, a perfect choice for those who need some chocolate dosage!What an interesting name it had. I like it best when such combination of tropical fruits comes in between layer of cream cheese. Banana, coconut and pineapple were included, simple a perfect treat for the summer.If you ask me which do I prefer, I will vote for the hummingbird. Here's the front view of the cake. Have it got hold of your stomach?Front View of the hummingbird continue reading

Full Cake Spade review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/07/cake-spade.htmlFounded in April 2013 by owner-baker Zenn Eng, Cake Spade is named after the cake serving tool, but is also a clever pun on the American fashion brand Kate Spade. With an impressive resume from At Sunrice Culinary Academy, Shangri-La, Island Creamery, as well as home baking, the sassy, easy-on-the-eye Zenn Eng decided to start Cake Spade, selling her unique, carefully constructed cake creations that have drawn rave reviews for being extremely tasty.Ambience at Cake Spade is modern and stylish, taking inspiration for American style cafes. Grey walls and wood panelling adorn the place, with a large display for all their cakes. But seating at Cake Spade is very limited, only a handful of small tables and chairs. This means Cake Spade tends to get crowded easily, and a lot of people buy takeaway instead.Service at Cake Spade is friendly and fast. Staff are able to make recommendations, and generally clear empty tables quite quickly as well. Zenn is often serving at the counter too, alongside her staff. Otherwise, Cake Spade is very much a self-service place, where you order, collect, and make payment on your own.Cake Spade specialises in dessert cakes, brownies, tarts and crumbles, with a sort list of beverages to accompany. Only fresh ingredients are used, without any additives or enhancers. Each cake is carefully constructed, with a combination of complmentary tastes and textures, and baked from scratch in true rustic style.Prices at Cake Spade are rather reasonable for the high quality of cakes you get. Expect a slice of cake to cost an average of SGD $5 - $7, with crumbles and tarts averaging about SGD $5 or so. Portions are large for 1 person, and sharing is recommended! Still, the desserts at Cake Spade aren't overly sweet or heavy, meaning you can always squeeze in dessert here after a meal!The Hummingbird Cake (SGD $5.90) slice is supposedly a healthier option here, as it's made with fruits. A fragrant, coarse banana cake packed with fresh pineapple chunks, topped with toasted dessicated coconut and a rich cream cheese frosting, all 3 layers of fruits are distinct enough to taste, yet still blend together in a sweet mouthful perfectly. Said to be among the best cakes in Singapore, the Hummingbird Cake has a bright, refreshing, summery feel, and is surprisingly good!The Brownie Bottom Cheesecake (SGD $6.50) slice comprises a rich yet smooth textured cheesecake, sitting on a base of dense chocolate brownie. A 2-in-1 combo! Topped with chocolate shavings, chocolate powder, and whipped cream, the cheesecake is flavourful with the taste of cream cheese. The brownie base isn't an afterthought either, it holds up well eaten on its own, with a crumbly texture and a dense chocolate flavour. The magic happens when both are combined in 1 mouthful! Nice twist on 2 classic cakes! continue reading
