If you’ve been following the instagrams of popular bloggers, you’d have encountered these pretty cakes from The Audacious Cakery. I was more enticed by the name of the shop than the cakes when they first appeared on my feed though. A newcomer to Everton Park, The Audacious Cakery indeed created much hype within a short period of time and well, you need more than good marketing skills to achieve just that.
The small cafe was extremely cosy with white-washed wooden chairs and lovely quotes on walls.
TWG tea is served here.
Tarts, cakes and mousse to suit every tastebuds.
Faith [Japanese green tea & fragrant black sesame mousse on a green tea sponge] ($6.80) – This combination was crazy-good! The black sesame mousse was found at the core of the cake and I loved how it was light and not overly sweet. The mousse was very well-done with a perfect proportion of mousse to sponge cake. The small ratio of black sesame mousse did not make its presence falter as the taste was strong enough. A must-try for matcha lovers!
Exotique [Mango & coconut mousse on a jaconde sponge w fresh mango & papaya bits] ($7.80) – I put my vote in Faith (the matcha cake above) though this was just as good. The mango cubes atop were juicy and sweet and the mixture of mango with papaya was a refreshing twist. More fruits were found within the cake and again, the sweetness was done just right.
Macarons – I tried the Chocolate Earl Grey one and really, macarons are not their strongest suit.
TWG Earl Grey Lavender Tea ($5 per cup/$9 per pot) – Going by pot would have been a wiser choice!
The cakes at The Audacious Cakery reminded me of those from Kki; exquisite but with better control of sugar levels. With a certain level of Japanese influence in their cakes, they are light on the palette and refreshing. Definitely worth a try to see what the hype is all about!
