Cakes with substance
Just a while ago, I posted about Cedele Depot's cakes and raved about them like mad.
I was sorry I didn't have pictures the other time and now, each time I visit them, I make it a point to snap some shots and as promised, here are the cakes, in all their glory.
Now you know why I think they have substance.
Seriously, if I could really choose any place to have cakes all my life, I'd definitely pick Cedele!
Yesterday I had their Apple Oat Cake (pictured above) and it tasted great with coffee. It did help that it was healthy - not sweet at all. My favourite part was the apple slices and the oat & walnut streusel on top. Crunchy and tasty, I love.
Seems like I cannot run away from Cedele. I have to go pass their shop everytime I'm near one. It's become so much of a habit that most of the time I do end up buying something.
Take the Old Fashioned Granny Apple Pie for instance. I was simply looking at the glorious offerings of scones and cakes when I chanced upon this beauty:
Looking good and yummy, I felt it calling out to me, so yes I had a slice. No regrets. Warm and chockful of apples, this pie gives you a warm feeling. It was as if my grandma made it for me. Awww...
And then there are those sins:
Like this Chocolate Truffle Cake. Super rich and super divine, this cake rocks my socks but I can't eat it all by myself. Have to share, unless I use it to replace a meal.
Cedele has a knack for exploring flavours and here are two cool cakes that I think deserve 2 thumbs up not only for their creativity but combination of flavours & textures:
Orange and Apricot cake. Love this one. You can actually taste both in a slice! See, they do mean what they say and say what they mean these Cedele peeps.
Okay this one might look standoffish because of its black colour but really, it tastes so good! It's Sesame Cake with Tahnini Frosting:
Loved the fact that they topped it with cranberries (my fav!)
Man... Cedele should come up with like a loyalty programme! :)
I do hear sounds of unison from Cedele fans!
