Cake Spade – You Won’t Regret This Piece Of Cake


Owner Zenn Eng of Cake Spade declined a photo. She must think I am a stalker or something, having visited her cake shop 3 times in a week. Just to describe her, she is sweet and beautiful, with an SQ girl style of elegance. (I am kind of sure people would search “Cake Spade Owner” on Google.)

Of course it is her cakes that prompted me for a return visit. The name of her shop may remind you of an American fashion design house or MP – and is pretty catchy.

Cake Spade is located at Orchid Hotel, which is proof that that location is not only about ramen shops and omakase. During my 1st visit, Zenn told me her best creations are in the 2nd shelf, not the top. That is where the Red Velvet ($5.90), Spiced Carrot Cake ($5.90) and Hummingbird ($5.90) are.

The Hummingbird Cake is soooooo good. I can have two of these. This moist sponge gives a feeling of bright summer Hawaii or a refreshing drink of Pina Colada, as it is sweetened with banana pulp, pineapples and coconut. You get traces of those three, but it is the coconut that gives this an extra zest. Top 10 cakes of Singapore definitely (I should come out with a list soon.)

The Spiced Carrot Cake is my next favourite, in between light and dense, with an addictive creamy layer of vanilla cream cheese icing. It is really the texture that differentiates itself from all the dry carrot cakes out there.

Zenn’s repertoire is built over the years from At-Sunrice Global Chef Academy, an apprentice at Shangri-La’s pastry team, a baker at Island Creamery and years of online home delivery.

Her proudest cake is perhaps the Strawberry Tofu Cheesecake ($5.90 per slice, $52 whole) with fresh strawberries encase in jelly with digestive biscuit crust at the bottom. Think jelly-hearts in cake form. Of the peach and strawberry, this is the lovelier and tastier version.

Even my mum is a converted fan, which asks me about that cake elaborately wrapped in a brown cardboard box. Cake Spade sells really lovely cakes, and it is really not just about the owner.
