Lady M

Hailing from New York City, Lady M makes its first debut in Singapore at Marina Square! Decked in a white-washed and spacious shop space, Lady M has been drawing a steady flow of crowd with its signature Mille Crêpe cake. Straying away from the mainstream folks, we skipped the Mille Crêpe and headed for another 2 cakes which appealed more to us.

Banana Mille Feuilles

Banana Mille Feuilles ($8) – puff pastry, whipped cream with layers of vanilla sponge and bananas. Though the Banana Mille Feuilles looked overwhelmingly overladen with cream, the whipped cream turned out to be pretty light, surprisingly refreshing and not oily, and came with a tinge of sweetness. The soft airy cream, together with the slightly moist vanilla sponge, was a good complement to the fragrant, flaky puff pastry. And with the bananas adding the extra bite to the cake, this Banana Mille Feuilles was pretty unique and interesting.

Raspberry Chocolate ($7.50) – chocolate ganache layers with raspberry puree. The only chocolate cake on display for the day, the Raspberry Chocolate looked pretty nondescript and common to the rest of the cakes. But it did stand out as the only dark cake on display. The dark chocolate ganache was very rich, dense and sticky. The bitter-sweetness hit the right note, with the top raspberry glaze and raspberry puree within the cake providing sufficient acidity and sourness to cut through the richness of the chocolate. There were also bits of gianduja-laced feuilletine which added bursts of crunchiness to the cake. A decadent chocolate cake for the chocolate lover.
