Smoulder specializes in molten chocolate cakes – to be more specific, bite-sized molten chocolate cakes!

At price of $8.20 for 3, we had the Intense Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate Rum and Raisin as well as the seasonal White Chocolate Oreo.

The cores of the mini cakes weren’t as fluid-like and molten as we had imagined. In fact, a better description would be soft-core, not molten core. The White Chocolate Oreo didn’t really have a strong Oreo taste. The outer cake was rather soft, moist and heavy – almost reminiscent of Chinese kueh. Taste wise, there was a very rich buttery taste, nothing of white chocolate.

The Milk Chocolate Rum and Raisins were slightly more up to expectations. There was an evident, though faint, rum flavour. The juicy, rum-soaked raisins embedded within the cake provided additional burst of flavours and textures. However, the outer cake was pretty bland and lackluster.

The Intense Dark Chocolate was really intense. The strong bitterness from the 70% cocoa content hit us immediately at the 1st bite. The soft core was rich and definitely more molten-like compared to the previous two. Terms of taste and texture, the Intense Dark Chocolate hit all the right notes.
