1 Caramel, The Luxe (Just beside The Cathay)

January 11, 2010

What’s the best way to end your Sunday? Some real Sunday treats.

We have probably walked past this place a dozen times but each time, we will tell ourselves that we will come back for their desserts the next time.

Tucked just beside the Cathay lies a pretty little café called “1 Caramel”. I’m sure many have dined there and enjoyed the cakes. But do they live up to their name? Yes indeed.

Big glass windows and tall white chairs, coupled with an assortment of cakes on display. I like it. 1 Caramel quality cakes are all freshly baked daily.

We had three slices of cakes and some coffee to perk us up on the lazy Sunday afternoon.

1. Lychee Rose – SGD 7.90
2. Chocolate Praline Cake – SGD 7.90
3. Strawberry Shortcake – SGD8.90

Lychee Rose

(Lychee Rose mousse with juicy lychee jelly with Valrhona ivory chocolate glaze)

Greedy me. I forgot to take pictures of Lychee Rose. This is truly a delight to have. This is certainly a cake that I might consider using for my wedding in the future. Take small little bites of it. The frosting on the top part was good as well as it wasn’t too sweet for my liking. The rose and lychee flavour goes really well together. The cake looks and tasted good.

Chocolate Praline Cake

(1 Caramel’s cocoa signature cake with varying layers of chocolate mousse and hazelnut praline feuilletine)

Chocolate Praline is perhaps one of the best combinations found in a cake. I absolutely love it. Their cake is nicely done and it wasn’t too sweet as well. I can definitely finish this cake up myself.

Strawberry Shortcake

(Layers of fresh juicy strawberries, vanilla genoise and strawberry cream coated with puff pastry flakes baked to golden perfection)

The folks at 1Caramel places much pride in making their cakes. The main ingredient in strawberry shortcake is, of course, strawberries. And 1 Caramel’s Strawberry shortcake certainly lives up to its name.

There is nothing like the fresh taste of strawberries in a delightful soft sponge cake. To differentiate themselves from the usual strawberry shortcake, 1 Caramel did a pretty good job in adding the puff pastry flakes. Excellent Choice E. It certainly brightens up my Sunday afternoon.

I love their cakes but it will be pinch on my wallet if i were to have it that often. 🙂

    that’s my blog, though we just started another to log travel stuff (http://1001things.wordpress.com) which is a little low on content

    we had the Mango Mascarpone and Strawberry Shortcake, hot choc (too strong) and Charlemagne Tea (very refreshing).

    actually i heard about the place caz the owner’s bf is an army senior, so he was raving about it and i was skeptical… haha. as much as i hate to admit, the cakes are really not bad.
