Located at Waterloo Centre, this building comprises 4 levels of shops /offices and HDB residence blocks and was built in 1975. As for the bakery itself, it was started in December 2003 by a group of passionate bakers who pride themselves for using only fresh ingredients and thus great-tasting cakes.
Oh before I forget, Summertime Carrot Cake is featured in the 50 yummiest cakes with the following description
"A classic carrot cake packed with raisins and walnuts and covered with a white chocolate and cream cheese frosting."
No doubt, this is delicious and fresh, generously filled with walnuts and raisins. I was told to allow the cake to equilibrate to room temperature for better taste and thus I ate it with my sister and mummy the moment I reached home. The cake is sufficiently moist and dense (not as grainy as Cedele's nor chewy as Calendar's) but the cream cheese frosting is little sweet to my liking. What is good about this cake is its strong fragrance of cinnamon in it.
Having eaten the recommended carrot cakes, it gives me the impression that they all taste similar. The difference lay in how moist it is, the walnut, the cream cheese and the cinnamon taste. For Summertime Carrot Cake, I would say that it losses on the cream cheese and the lack of cinnamon taste. Apart from these factors, I think it is kind of similar to most other carrot cakes.
