De La Creme

Nestled in the heart of Siglap and Frankel Estate is De La Creme. A hidden gem not too faraway from the bustling East Coast Road. The Star managed to park his car along a road near De La Creme and we made our way swiftly to the surprise destination that he had planned(yes, again haha)



We were greeted with warm smiles and friendly service when we entered the shop.



Their current selection of cakes. They're coming up with more creations!


When I first saw the Mogador, I was pretty sure I wanted that until I read that there was raspberry inside ):

So I took a look at the rest

1) Mont Blanc, a cake topped with chestnut cream. (Their newest addition)
2) Ispahan, it looks really amazing.Think raspberries, rose macaron shell and lychees
3) Mango Shortcake
4) Lemon Meringue Tart

After a long while, I decided on the Lemon Meringue Tart. To be honest, I didn't have high expectations of it.


Here's my lemon meringue tart which surprised me. The meringue was really delectable. It wasn't too sweet like other meringues and the texture was really amazing. Digging my fork into the tart, I realised that there is a layer of hard crust as its border and the inside is incredibly soft. The stark contrast was pleasant. Next up, I tackled the lemon curd waiting patiently for me. The lemon curd is refreshingly sour with just the right amount of sweet ring to it. Never thought I'd fall in love with a meringue tart but I did.

The Mogador was impressive. The smooth chocolate mousse and ganache melts right in your mouth and at that moment you'll just go "hmmmm" Haha. It was really delicious! I really liked it. It's a pity that there's raspberry inside as I don't take berries. The Star was sweet enough to choose the Mogador as he knew that I'd want to try the chocolate [: Hehe.

Another thing I'll like to highlight about De La Creme is the service crew! They took time to explain to us what the different cakes contain and personally came over to our table to ask how the cakes were and such. They were constantly smiling and were friendly throughout our entire visit. Such lovely people (:

De La Creme has been around for only 3 months but they have surely made a mark for themselves. Their delicious macarons and cakes have attracted many and gained them lots of fans. You would think that they only serve sweet things like cakes and macarons but they have brunch too! I'll love to try their brunch out except for the fact that Siglap is really far away ):

Do check out De La Creme and let us know what you think!
