NEW:

DAD'S BAKED MARS BAR CHEESECAKE


Why "Dad's"? Well, it's always Mum's this and Mum's that when it comes to food right?! Oh, my mum's chocolate cake, or my mum's carrot cake.....WELL, it's high time DAD'S GOT THEIR RECOGNITION!!! Hence, DAD'S BAKED MARS BAR CAKE.

A rich baked cheese cakes, with Mars Bars incorporated into the cake. The savouriness of the cheese combats the usual sickly sweetness of the Mars Bar, giving it a perfect blend of salty, sweet, chocolatey, all in one mouthful. Yes, it's one of those from the lip to the hip kinda cake.

RM65 only.

PS- Not to be confused with the Chilled Mars Bar Cheesecake, which has been around for ages. (That one is RM60)

A variety of Chocolate Mousse Cakes;
Chocolate Biscuit Based, either Dark Chocolate (RM60), Mint Chocolate (RM60), Jaffa (RM60), Brandy Chocolate (RM65)

Alternatively, with Sponge Base. Same price.

Pavlovas: Order at your risk, as fresh cream melts quickly. Depending on fruit topping, price ranges from RM60 for Strawberry Pavlova. The one pictured below has blueberries and mango, and costs RM70.




Okay, so the Pear & Ginger is a "plagiarism" of the ones in the market, but hey, after awhile, there are only so many variations of cake that seem popular. This version, tweaked, with far less sugar, and added crytallised ginger, is RM60, and really MUST be served with pure cream or ice cream.

Cupcakes, or HANDS ON MOTHERS. We brought all the icing, buttercream and sugarpaste, to the hostess' house, complete with cutters, nozzles, piping bags, to let the hostess have a hand in the decorations, so she can tell her kid that "mummy made these" when the kid grows up. Lump sum package, minimum 40 cupcakes, for RM200. (as in, ice it yourself). Additional cupcakes RM4 each. Flavours, vanilla, plain butter, or chocolate.


Tiramisu Torte

Now more popularly served with caramelised nuts topping, (but you can opt for the less sweet toasted almonds and cocoa powder alternative), this universal favourite of mascarpone cheese in between coffee chiffon cake, yummm. However, warning, the ingredients are all fresh, like fresh cream etc, so it melts very easily. If you cannot get it to a fridge within 1/2 an hour, you better tell me, so that some gelatine might have to be added.
RM70 with brandy, RM65 without.


scones
Scones, light and crumbly, married with clotted cream and thick conserve, washed down with a cup of tea. Perfect.
RM50 for 16. (excludes pure cream and jam, but can be supplied at cost)

Lemon Meringue Pie

Tarty Lemon Curd Engulfed by Fluffy Sweet Meringue. Buttery pastry crust.
RM60

Banana Walnut Cake With Cream Cheese Topping. A fairly healthy cake, as there is no butter, very few eggs, and uses healthy sunflower oil. Very moist, and nutty. And I personally love cream cheese topping. You can opt for a flavoured cream cheese topping. RM50 without topping, RM55 with. (no price change)

BRANDY TRUFFLE CAKE - No flour, so suitable for gluten intolerant, but not suitable if you cannot take egg. Very rich, contains about 600gms of chocolate alone. RM60. Or if you cant take alcohol, then its RM55 for the virgin version. (no price change)

QUICHE - Various fillings, can opt for chicken, beef bacon, mushroom tuna, etc etc. Average cost about RM 60.

CHILLED DURIAN CHEESECAKE - Revised Price RM65




CHILLED MARS BAR CHEESECAKE - A treat for those who love the mars bar. We have tried not to make it overly sweet though, and bulk of the sweetness comes from the Mars Bars themselves. RM60


CHOCOLATE OFFERINGS






Clockwise, from Left Top :

Chocolate Oreo Cake - Chocolate sponge with a layer of crushed oreo (one whole pack), rich chocolate cream. Very universal, and easy pleaser. RM60

Chocolate Mud Cake - A dense chocolate cake that goes straight to the hips. Should be accompanied with sour cherries, and fresh cream to counter the richness that is chocolate. RM60. Optional - Brandy (add RM10)

Chocolate Jaffa Tart - A hint of orange, literally half baked. Lower half of chocolate layer is baked, upper layer is a rich ganache flavoured with orange rind. RM60

Flourless Chocolate Cakes With Molten Centres - Alas, the lava does not stay molten forever. You need to zap cooled cakes for about 20-30 seconds to re-melt the centres. Minimum order, 10. RM5 per piece.

Orange Mocha Chocolate Brownie - Very safe, so far no complaints by eaters. Goes superbly with vanilla ice cream, or dollop of fresh cream. Not a very high cake, so it might look small, but guaranteed to fill you up. RM55



CHEESEY OFFERINGS

Mascarporne, cream cheese, cheddars, you don't have to be a mouse to enjoy cheese.

Clockwise from Left Top:

Baked Orange/Lemon Cheese Cake - RM60, for approx 1.3kg cake.

Chilled Cheesecakes - Lemon/Orange. It's unfathomable how cheesecake eaters are divided into two camps, ie, baked OR chilled, and never the twain shall meet. RM55.

THE NUTTY FRUITY SEEDY VARIETIES

Bananas, (not in pajamas), dates, raisins, walnuts, almonds, poppy seeds, durian, oranges, carrots, lemon, in a marriage with flour, eggs, sugar and cream, in some cases.....

Clockwise from Left Top:

Sour Cream Walnut Coffee - The sour cream's IN the cake, so you can't opt to scrape it off. Walnuts, coffee, what's not to like. RM55

Sticky Date Cake With Toffee Topping - Now that dates are available not only during Ramadhan, this cake is now possible any time of the year. Moist, very sweet, even when you cut down the sugar. But it's TOFFEE TOPPING. One doesn't expect to order that without having a sweet tooth. RM50.

Orange Poppy Seed Cake - A dollop of orange marmalade goes into this recipe. And lots of orange rind. And lots of poppy seed. But not enough to get you on an opium high. Other variations, lemon poppy seed and durian poppy seed.
Orange/Lemon poppy seed - RM50, (+RM5 for cream cheese frosting)
Durian Poppy Seed - RM60 (comes with durian cream in a tub)

Old Fashioned Carrot Cake - Very healthy, sunflower oil, walnuts, carrots, raisins (or prunes, up to you) little bit of sugar, in fact, it could pass off as a vegetable dish. RM50 naked, (+RM5 for cream cheese frosting).

SAVOURY AND UNSAVOURY CHARACTERS/ PIES

Nothing like a good old pie, with buttery puff pastry casing, or a sweet pie with buttery shortcrust bases, to embellish a meal.



Clockwise From Top Left

GOOD OLD APPLE PIE - Contains at least 8 medium sized granny smiths, cooked from scratch. You can opt for a tangy version, with lemon peel, OR the usual sweet version with raisins. RM60. Best served with cream and/or ice cream, vanilla of course.

LEMON /LIME TART - What's the difference? Lime is a bit more bitterish, and actually, cost more, despite it being a local fruit. In terms of price per kg, lime yields far less juice than lemons. For the sour lovers, this is the one. RM55

CHICKEN & MUSHROOM PIE -Chicken, mushroom, coriander and whatever tickles your fancy. Puff pastry casing, of course. RM65 for one 8 inch diameter pie, in disposable pie plate.

QUICHES - A quiche is just a quiche, a smile is just a smile. Filling, your choice, priced accordingly. Smoked salmon does cost more than smoked chicken. From RM60.....

RUM AND RAISIN PIE - Doused with rum, raisins soaked until plump with alcohol, in a custardy filling, encased with shortcrust pastry shell base. RM65 (sorry, no non alcoholic versions, unless you want "rum essence"....which is as bad as fake cream)
