Old fashioned cake

I had lunch with best friend at a famous Italian restaurant yesterday. I really looked forward to the tiramisu, said to be the best in Singapore by some bloggers. When we dug into the dessert, I didn't feel the kick. I'm not that difficult to please when it comes to cakes but somehow that one didn't do anything for me. We shared one portion and even had some leftovers.

This morning I woke up with a huge craving for the good old butter cake. Before fancy cakes were in vogue, there were only butter cakes with real butter icing in the cake shops. They were usually decorated with pretty patterns and colours, and whatever flavours they were, I loved them all.

The good thing is, such cakes are still available in some cake shops. The best thing is, the confectionary near my place makes really good ones, at only S$1 each. I bought 3 slices.

After working out in the garden all morning, I treated myself to one for lunch. The cake is really tender and moist, and the icing simply heavenly. YK thinks it is too oily but it's still my favourite. Anytime better than the fancy cheesecakes at $7 a piece!

The shop is very generous with the butter cream.
