On a casual Thursday after work, I dropped by the newly opened Star Vista and chanced upon this little Taiwan Confectionery Shop that offers a rather wide selection of Taiwan cakes and sweets. I recalled during my recent trip to Taiwan, I brought back many treats and souvenirs for my friends and family because that's probably the most appropriate gift since it's not easy to find them in Singapore. But thanks to Sweet Musings, now not only can you find Taiwanese cakes in Singapore, you get to pur
But thanks to Sweet Musings, now not only can you find Taiwanese cakes in Singapore, you get to purchase freshly baked ones rather than imported cakes, which would not be as fresh. The onion cookie 洋葱饼 (30 Pcs for S$10) was the first that we tried, and also one of my favourite. Frankly, I am not a fan of onion and sometimes the smell of it deters me away. But the onion, along with the sesame seeds that dotted the cookie, has very well enhanced the aroma and ultimately the taste of the cookie; onion taste was not very strong and the whole cookie was crunchy and savoury. The special point about Sweet Musings is that fact that they produce the delicacies on the spot, instead of importing them in. Pudding in assorted flavors Unlike the usual Sun Cake 太陽餅，Sweet Musings uses white maltose and honey as an alternative to the usual brown sugar. Sun cakes can range from hard ones to those that melts in your mouth. I would say the one here at sweet musings were just right in the middle standard, not too tough and not too so doughy. The star of the day was none other than the bestseller, Yam Cake roll (S$18). Yam cake wrapped with yam mousse. I then tried the one a shelf level below the onion cookie - Egg Roll 蛋捲 (2 pcs $2, 12pcs $12, 24pcs $24)￼, which has a hint of Earl Grey Tea essence in it. What's more, it comes in an extremely adorable packaging and is the best to present it as a gift to friends or relatives. Something that caught my attention was the Egg pudding 雞蛋布丁 (5 Pcs S$12). Just like how the name suggests, the egg pudding was actually placed in real egg shells that they have meticulously prepared. We know how egg shells are really fragile, so this is surely something special. To emphasize the uniqueness, the egg puddings actually contain natural vanilla seeds that can nourish your skin.
