Singapore Sweet Safari

Coming to the end of my trip here in Singapore, I've had the lovely opportunity to try the many varied and interesting sweet treats this island-nation has to offer.

My tastebuds have been tingling from the the many delicious desserts I've been tasting. And my girth has expanded in tandem. But can one say no to all of these?

Display at Wimbly Lu, a darling little place near my parent's home

Eclairs and Rocky Road

 Their chocolate molten lava cake

Cupcakes! From Plain Vanilla bakery

A whoopie pie from Pique Nique...'twas delicious!

A cake pop made by my husban's cousin for her own 21st birthday.
How talented is she?! bribe her for creative license...

And now, on to ASIAN DESSERTS!!

 My ALL-TIME fav (especially because we can't get it in Australia),
 At a little Asian eatery on Leong Siak St.
Clockwise from top left: 
Mango Sago Pomelo dessert with mango ice-cream,
Boiled black glutinous rice (pulut hitam) with almond slices and ice-cream,
Mango Sago Pomelo dessert with DURIAN,
Warm almond pudding.

 At the Old Airport Road hawker centre
A custard egg tart with a biscuit instead of pastry base
and Taiwan-style sweetened silky soya beancurd (Lao Ban)

Just yesterday we celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday at House @ Dempsey with a Vintage Tea Party buffet they put on every Thursday and Friday.

 Vintage table settings, complete with bunting!
And mismatched plates!

Sweet treats of different sorts. I die!!

Miniature cupcakes, similar to the Vintage Rose ones I've made

Mini skinny pizzas. The truffled mushrooms...OHHH the truffled mushrooms. 
Mushgasm in yer mouth!

 Piping hot tea in an old school thermos flask.
Serving tea that smelt of cocoa, and sweet ginger tea!

WELL! My little getaway abroad has finally come to an end...time to head home, for some new and exciting baking thingamajiggys! Next up will be the North Melbourne Market's special event as part of the L'Oreal Fashion Festival, and my lil' ol' cake pop class at Thread Den!

Hope to see you there!
