There is this little cake shop along Tanjong Pagar Road called Cake Spade. I love the name cos it’s so punny and apt. Check out the logo! (It’s a cake spade-knife! That looks like the Spades in a card set! And of course, the allusion to that bag brand…) Triple pun.
It’s the kind of shop name I wish I came up with. (Not that I have a shop, but you know what I mean right…)
It only seats a maximum of 6 inside, but there are tables and chairs outside that can seat about 8. There are a variety of baked goods on sale inside, along with some interesting bottled drinks too. They sell cupcakes, tofu cheesecakes, and specialities like Hummingbird cake and the Chocolate Blackout cake.
I wasn’t in a mood to be very healthy that day, so we went for the Red Velvet Cheesecake. Which was Out of this World! The cheesecake biscuit-like base was super yummy, and the cheesecake layer itself was just right – not too sweet, not too bland… every mouthful a real delight. Oh, and the cream cheese top was awesome too. Ok I’m running out of adjectives.
Overall, a very pleasant nook to chill out in, and indulge in some well-earned calories. I like to say, spend your calorie quota on only the good stuff! And the quality cakes there are certainly worth every bite/byte.
