I had first blogged on K-ki in early 2010, February to be exact and it has remained one of my top choices for cakes in Singapore. I continue to stand by to all the comments that I made of their cakes then – that itself is testament to their ability to consistently churn out cakes of quality, and not letting fame get to their heads.
Some bloggers have been commenting on their latest creations recently – Emily (S$9) and Tiramisu (S$9) and I thought it has been a while since I paid them a visit, so why not? Delphine, the affable lady boss a.k.a. lao ban niang commented that it must have been at least 5 months since I last visited.
Did I like the colourful cousin of the Kinabalu or K-ki’s rendition of the Italian classic? Read on to find out more!
I wouldn’t blame you if you noticed some similarities of Emily (S$9) and the Kinabalu. Alright, what was I thinking – the only reason you wouldn’t have noticed is if you have yet to visit K-ki!
The Emily is a unique but all-the-more interesting combination of flavours – of mild champagne and sweetness of strawberries.
With both cakes looking similar, it would not be weird to be making comparisions between them, now would it?
I thought that while Emily was good, and that it would have made an excellent alternative to the Kinabalu if it was not available! Not that it was bad in anyway. Personal preferences, you would say.
Now, what of the Tiramisu (S$9), you ask. A daring dessert choice, considering the Tiramisu being an Italian classic.
Interestingly, between the two cakes that I had that day, I very much preferred the Tiramisu. Arguably that would be an apples versus pears comparison, but the lightness of the dessert won me over.
Some places, Italian restaurants included tend to either under or oversoak the lady fingers, but K-ki’s got their ratios just right! Kudos! (P.s. the lady fingers are hidden right in the middle)
So what is holding you back? “Make a trip to K-ki, you must.”
