Super Light Cheese Chiffon Cake($6.30)Don't mix it up with its Light Cheese chiffon Cake which does not have a layer in the middle.
It was labeled that a new recipe was used for this cake and that is probably why they did not labeled it as new item. It is a tall very light and fluffy chiffon cake with luscious and soft cream cheese. Some common problem with cake creams is that they take some time to turn soft after you put them in the fridge. This one has no such problem.
The chiffon tastes lighter and more moist than the usual chiffon or tofu chiffon sold at other Japanese patisseries shop. Could you see the holes in the chiffon layer? So airy and bouncy but not dry and not sweet.
The other new item is the millefeuille. ($4.80)
This one is much better than Herdiard's Millefeuille as it is not soggy but flaky. I like it that it is easier to poke through the multiple layers and have it with the cream and not having to eat like layer by layer. The cream used here is vanilla custard cream.apple slices are used and sprinkled with cinnamon which fortunately did not overpower the millefeuille. For this price, it is more value for $$ than hediard's even though the latter is slightly bigger.
Extremely 酥脆!Yet easy to handle without making a huge mess:)
Just look at the distinct layers.
Matcha Marble CakeThough it is names marble cake, the texture is very similar to it's other chiffon cakes. Compared to the caramel corn Chiffon cake, this has a slightly bitter tea flavour that makes it alot less sweeter than the corn version.
Swirls of matcha intertwined with the vanilla,forming a very beautiful marbled cross surface.Not only the cake itself is marbled, the fresh cream is mixed with matcha as well. But this is less sturdy and thus wobbles and topples very easily...so it is indeed a very soft delicate cake to have.
Caramel Corn Chiffon cakeThis one is my latest new find at the store. And I thought that it would be a cake that tastes like corn but NO!!it tastes like popcorn. I even mistaken the caramelised popcorn on top for hazelnuts.
The popcorn can also be found inside the chiffon cake but I guess the chef did not put that many inside as it will affect the texture of the chiffon when it bakes. Once again, you would not be disappoint by the fluffy air like chiffon and the cream around it. But I wish there wad more cream to go with the cake once again:)
