Polar Puffs & Cakes @ Tampines Mall

June 28, 2008

I have always loved the Chicken Pie at Polar Puffs & Cakes because its always very very hard to get halal baked goods stuffed with meat in Singapore. 

Polar Chicken Pie

Not the most flattering photo of the Chicken Pie I must say. ūüėÄ What I love about the pie is the lightness and flakiness of the crust! Although it seems that the chicken filling seems to be getting lesser and lesser these past few years. Hrumph!

Mak has been wanting to buy eclairs ever since she ate them at one of my cousin’s weddings. Since we received¬†Polar Puffs and Cakes vouchers from Starhub, she decided to try the ones available there.¬†

Polar Eclairs

Even though I am not a regular eclair consumer, this eclair has little to be desired. I was expecting for there to be a chocolate cream filling inside, or that the bread puff be of a softer texture despite the fact that it is frozen, or that the chocolate coating would simply melt once it reaches my mouth. 

Well it failed on all three counts. The chocolate coating is as hard as a rock, the bread puff was tough and the cream was just simply that Рcream and nothing else. 

Mak knows that Ayah is a big fan of all things durian. So she spent the rest of the vouchers on the Durian Puffs.

Polar Durian Puffs

Again this was also a disappointment. The bread puff was hard, and the cream inside was not purely made of durian flesh but of a cream that tasted like durian. I was expecting the cream to be made of 100% durian flesh, like the Durian Puffs I always love to buy at the basement of Takashimaya. Definitely not one of the best durian puff I have ever tasted. 

I agree with what Kakak said. Polar is only good at making pies and puffs with the flaky crust. Maybe they should just stick to that and nothing else.


Emicakes Premium D24 Cake

Happy 24th Birthday Kakak!

After such a wonderful orgasmic experience during Mother’s Day 2006, my dad made a special request to have this cake for my sister’s birthday! I had nearly forgotten the taste of a deliciously crafted durian cake after one long hard year of absence. But the sweet creamy taste of the durian, nestled between small slices of cake sponge never ceases to titilate my senses to a new level of sweetness! Other than a Chocolate Etoile from Temptations Cakes Pte Ltd, or a Chocolate Fudge Cake from Royal Cakes and Puffs Pte Ltd, the Premium D24 cake is sinful as all calories-fearing extremists would testify against! This is a cake that all durian lovers should try once in their lifetime. I’m definitely sure that my whole family truly enjoyed eating the cake.

Happy Mother’s Day!

May 14, 2006

I would like to wish my mother a truly Happy Mother’s Day! You are the greatest mum one can ever have and all three of us are testament to your success! More than just mere tokens of gratitude, the gifts are simply symbols of our love for you! I love you Mak!

Anyway, the cake above was a Premium D24 Cake from Emicakes. When I ordered the durian cake, I did not know what to expect, except, well durian! But the cake totally exceeded my expectations in terms of its taste, texture, aroma and over all presentation. Its simple design is truly exquisite, and does not distract the eaters from the truly intoxicating aroma of the durian. (And I mean that in a good way!) What I found truly shocking was the layers of durian cream in the cake itself, and I mean 100% durian cream taken off the fruit itself! Even a non-durian fan like me could help but take a second helping of the cake, simply because it was so good! AAHH!!!

Happy Mother’s Day!
