Who is this fabulous baker boy? I have heard of the brand, but only recently managed to try it. A very catchy name indeed. My curiosity led me to their website and ah… The fab boy is Juwanda Hassim… And no, I don’t know him but yes, I recalled where I heard/saw of him… from a friend’s Facebook. The power of social media.
Ok, let’s focus on the food. I only got to try the cakes as I was there for coffee and dessert.
I was told they renovated to air-condition a bigger part of the seating area, a wise move considering how hot and humid Singapore is.
Here are the few cakes we tasted.
Raspberry Lemon (S$8.50)
Raspberry filling topped with lemony cream cheese covered with puff pastry. Loved the puff pastry topping.
Banana cake with pineapple chucks and pecan nuts. I love bananas, so the strong banana taste was a big plus for me. The pineapple and nuts gave it a good bite. It was my favorite. Anyway, I was sold just by its name. I’m easy to please 😉
The Ristretto (S$8.50)
A Valrhona chocolate cake covered with coffee cream. Looked impressive but it was quite mediocre. But I guess you can’t go wrong with such a combination so try it when you are in a less adventurous mood… Or if you need that mild caffeine pick-me-up.
Apple Cider (S$8.50)
Apparently they have cakes that are chilled, stored in the chiller beside the main cake display area. I missed it totally. But thankfully a friend pointed out and ordered this chilled Apple Cider cake. For those who like something lighter in taste, this would be perfect. It uses homemade organic apple sauce and is filled / topped with salted caramel cream cheese. It didn’t stand out once you put it together with the other stronger/heavier cakes so go solo with this.
Green Tea Praline (S$7.50)
This cake was the sweetest among all, and it was quite creamy. Its matcha butter cream will satisfy your green tea cravings… Hmmm… then again, who craves for green tea? Well, let’s just say if you want something Asian…
Try going early if you want to catch their best sellers. I was told their best sellers were Red Velvet, Carrot Cake and Valrhona Chocolate. I didn’t get to try any. Looks like I need to make another trip soon.
They also serve a generous menu of savouries – salads, starters, pies, mains, pasta…etc. Check out their website for more information – TheFabulousBakerBoy.com
And oh… very good coffee too, and super friendly Barista.
