I’m sure we all have a ‘go-to’ place when we’re in dire need for a cake for someone special. Over the years we have had many, starting with Baskin Robbin’s ice-cream cakes, then Café Maxim’s orange chocolate truffle cake, to Bakery Nakamura for their japanese-styled cheese cakes, to Ruelo Patisserie’s green tea red bean sesame cake, and then Rahier’s various chocolate cakes. As you can see, we have tried our fair share of cake shops! So this year, we decided to surprise our mum with a cake with a more personalized touch!
So who made this darling of a cake for us? No one other than the talented blogger Amy Lu from Amy’s Food Adventures! Ever since she invited us to go to Nadège Patisserie with her, we’ve been following her adventures religiously via her blog, facebook, and instagram, and whenever we see her posting some of her delicious baked goods, we can’t help but
drool all over our laptops admire her work.
We could not have asked for a more perfect cake for our mum who loves green tea flavoured sweets and opera cakes. Amy was able to combine her 2 loves into one dessert. Taking on this challenge to tackle this cake for the first time, the cake exceeded our expectations in both presentation and taste. We’re so grateful to have such a talented blogger friend. We know this won’t be our last time placing an order at Amy’s Sweet Shop! =)
