Earlier last week, we visited The Audacious Cakery for a media launch event. The cake shop is scheduled to open on Tuesday, 24th September. Though the shop is relatively new in the arena of cakes and pastries, the husband and wife team has been baking customised cakes from home for customers over the past year. The duo prides themselves in hand crafting unique and delicious cakes and desserts with highest quality specially imported ingredients. They also pay intricate attention to the design of them so as to really captivate all of your senses. Even their coffee comes from Chye Seng Huat Hardware, one of Singapore’s best third wave coffee joint.
We started with some cupcakes to try, Raspberry Devil’s food cake, Matcha, Black Sesame, Chocolate Ganache and Strawberry from the standard selection, and S’mores from the special selection. From the top right down to the base of the cupcakes, we were able to sink our teeth in soft and moist textures, savouring rich flavours with just the right sweetness. They not only look good but taste great as well!
For cakes, try the Exotique Cake which has a layer of mango and coconut mousse on jaconde sponge, generously topped with fresh mango and papaya cubes. The tropical fruits blended well together, with each their own natural sweetness not overpowering one another.
Those who prefer something more mean like an alcohol infused cake, try the Foret Noir which is an alcoholic black forest cake. It has a layer of Valrhona dark chocolate mousse on Valrhona dark chocolate genoise, infused and decorated with Kirsh soaked cherries and Kirsh Cream. Just knowing the ingredients that go into the cake can make you salivate.
Alternatively, try the Monet Cake which is an alcoholic compote cake. It has a layer of orange mousse with champagne, incorporated to tart raspberry compote on Cointreau soaked sponge cake. Studded with red currants to serve, the cake would make a sparkling addition to white themed parties.
For tarts, try the Lemon Meringue which is a silky smooth and tangy tart with French churned butter on crunchy biscuit base. We thought this bright yellow tart (that reminds us of a smiley face) would make a great alternative to birthday cakes. Chocolate lovers, try the Chocolate Souffle made from dark chocolate with crunchy chocolate biscuit base. So much chocolate to begin with, yet the soft souffle centre manages to give the tart a light body. You can opt to have this tart eaten warm or chilled.
You might also be interested in their selection of specially selected French artisan breads that are freshly baked and obtained daily. There are also sandwiches and profiteroles, macarons and tea – something for everyone, really.
Special attention is also put into the design packaging to complete the whole audacious experience. Finished with a string cord ribbon, The Audacious Cakery pastries, cake and tarts would make ideal gifts for a baby shower, birthday bash or wedding reception.
