More On birthday celebrations

When it was Mr H’s actual birthday, we were both busy with work. It was a simple fanfare of going for lunch and dinner.

We were such fans of Gyu Kaku that we returned to the restaurant to celebrate. My boys loved the U.S. Tare beef and boy, did they chomp down all the barbecued meats.

We also picked up a lovely cake from Chef Yamashita.

As usual, X blew out the candles and insisted on cutting the cake.


More on Chef Yamashita’s cakes

I ordered the Choco-Ichigo (Choco fresh cream – strawberry shortcake) for a girlfriend’s birthday recently.  The cream was lovely but the sponge of the cake was denser and sweeter than what we expected.  The sponge was nice but it seemed to overwhelm the light choco cream.20140531-170550-61550841.jpg


This was the Mount Fuji cake at $6.80 per slice.  I rather liked this but my sister preferred Flor’s Mount Fuji as it offered more pastry layers within the cake.  I enjoyed the chestnut cream very much and I also told her I would be happy to settle for this than to walk another 500 down to Flor for additional pastry layers.20140531-170550-61550345.jpg

This unassuming dark cherries tart at $6.80.  It was actually very nice!  I was a fan of fresh cherries and I liked the way they had ‘prepped’ the cherries which worked well with the custard and tart.20140531-170549-61549913.jpg

Chef Yamashita

If you are a fan of Cake Glacé and Flor, you would know this chef.

He has opened this bakery!

My friend alerted me last week and it was so near my office that I could not resist not checking it out.



It tasted awesome and was very reasonably priced. 10% off whole cakes from now till end June too! 😉
