Su's Cakes For Kicks

Shoppers who need a speedy burst of energy before braving the crowds at Uniqlo might want to check out the wide-ranging cheesecakes here.

Cempedak cheesecake. I've hated cempedak since childhood; this was the first recipe using this fruit that I've enjoyed (!). Mild-tasting, with juicy, gelatinous fruit pulp.

Layered cheesecake, with cream cheese, Belgian chocolate & Oreo base. A simple, successful blend of subtle tastes and delicate textures.

Durian cheesecake. Beautifully presented. Pretty fresh too, without offensive odors.

Rocky road cheesecake. The marshmallows were an awesome addition, imparting a wholesome chewiness to the soft, smooth cheesecake.

Belgian dark chocolate cheesecake. As aromatic and intense as promised.

Cafe Latte cheesecake. Coffee lovers might appreciate this better than we did.

Chocolate velvet cake with choc fudge center. Our only non-cheesecake choice. Could have been more moist, though it had a reasonably rich cocoa flavor.

White chocolate cheesecake. Were we all caked out in the end? Oh yeah.

What works well with cheesecake? Pago del Vicario Corte Dulce Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc 2006, a sweet wine purchased from wineactually.com.

  2. McCutie have been a fan of her Lychee Cheesecake for a while now. We order it from her online store for special occasions or just have a slice at Vintry outlets.

    Glad to see that she has opened a retail outlet when we visited Fahrenheit 88. Too bad they didn't have the Lychee Cheesecake on sale.

  3. J: ya, to paraphrase marie Antoinette, let me eat cake! :D
    Qwazymonkey: ooh, they had the lychee cheesecake available here this week, but they mixed up my order and didn't give it to me. Sounds yummy!

  9. joe: ya, i've never ordered her cakes online before, so it was nice to finally try them! :D

    Maligned. But if you must, how

  11. lfb: oh, which reminds me, u never did mention whether u finally managed to munch on those macarons from babycakes at g tower :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. No lor... Last macarons I had, A Lil Fat Monkey bought from Natalie's I think. I guess I'm just not a big macaron person. (Nor is Devil, actually.)

    Plus, I lazy to walk. Hahahah..

  15. She should work on her presentation. Better shaped and decorated cakes would sell better ;p

    But of course, taste is of outmost paramount.

    ReplyDelete
  16. lfb: i love macarons, but i'm trying not to get addicted to them. sadly though, the best ones i've ever had were in paris, and therefore, out of reach for now...
    bangsar-babe: yep, too much cake, really (could have skipped the last two or three)! and yeah, wine goes well with everything, heheh :D
    ciki: wah, u've got extremely powerful hearing! we'd better not say anything bad about u behind your back! =)
    tng: heheh, maybe the cakes are out of shape cos i mishandled them while photographing them! they're so easy to squash! :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. The Best I Ever Had Was In Paris. Sounds like a title of some chick-lit novel, no? (No offense.)

    And that Ciki har... selective hearing, aitelyu. :P

    ReplyDelete
  18. how come until now i never like cempedak nor nangka??? :p

    ReplyDelete
  19. lfb: heheh, based on the title, would i read that book? hell, no! :D
    babe_kl: cempedak and nangka are stinky! and they leave a bad aftertaste, heheh...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great looking presentation! Wine and cake? I like the way you think :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. feedme: yeah, i'm not sure which i liked better, the wine or the cakes, heh :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just realise that the title I suggested might very well be a film and not a book. Perhaps the sequel to 'One Night in Paris'? :P

    P.S. Or was that 'All Night in Paris'? Err...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lfb: 'Macarons All Night In Paris'? I'd read that book/watch that movie instead :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's really a LOT of cakes in ONE sitting?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. pureglutton: yeah, probably too many cakes! luckily, didn't feel ill after that though :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeahloh, in the midst of rushing to see what the hoo-ha over Uniqlo was, we missed this kiosk on the ground floor.
    Did make a point to return after the shopping but ended up exiting to the main road.
    Coz the retail store was mad-crowded.

    Should be a good place to sit down and have some cakes.

  27. j2kfm: yeah, i've been totally avoiding uniqlo! every time i step into fahrenheit 88, it's just to makan. hopefully things will calm down after, errmm, chinese new year :D
