Kki Sweets, Singapore

I was researching on patisseries to visit in Singapore and came across Kki Sweets. Its name Kki means ‘Cake’ in Japanese, such a cute name! You pronounce it as K-Ki. This patisserie is located in SOTA (School of the Arts) on Orchard Road near Dhoby Ghaut MRT station so it was a relatively easy place to find.

This had a white chocolate mousse with a mango filling. The mousse was extremely light and had a nice white chocolate flavour which wasn’t too sweet. The sweet fragrant mango filling complemented the white chocolate mousse very well. This cake was nice and very smooth, the mousse melted in my mouth as it was airy light. Although I wish there was more mango filling, this was still an excellent cake.

Antoinette (Penhas Road), Singapore

I visited Singapore for apartment hunting a couple of months ago in preparation for the big move. We had some time to spare so we decided to visit Antoinette on Penhas Road for some pastries.

Antoinette came highly recommended by my boss, who is a pastry chef, so naturally I had quite a high expectation for this place and their cakes!

Orangette
This cake had layers of dark chocolate mousse, caramel bavarois, orange marmalade, hazelnut feulletine and chocolate genoise. Overall this was a great petit gateaux with a great chocolate flavour. The mousse was very smooth, rich and decadent. The hazelnut feulletine added a pleasant crunch and texture. However I would have preferred a stronger orange flavour given the name but I could hardly taste the marmalade.

Life 101: 5 Live Healthy Goals

Hello everyone! Today I would like to talk about my goals in living healthier. As you all would probably know by now, I love to eat, especially pastries and chocolates. So it isn’t exactly the easiest thing to live healthy that way.

I know it isn’t about cutting out all things sweet but about portion control, but it is just so hard to do so! I attempted a “no sugar on alternate days February” and it didn’t exactly go that well. There were so many cheat days!

Being someone who loves making and eating these treats, it is hard to resist and sometimes control what I consume. So I thought maybe I should set some “live healthier” goals.

Making: Macarons

I love making macarons. Yes, they are temperamental and sometimes unpredictable depending on the time of the month (jks), but I love a good challenge once in a while so I like tackling a good macaron recipe every now and then.
