K ki Cafe & The Little Drom Store on Ann Siang Hill is probably one of the most known and popular ‘hidden find’ in Singapore! Opened by self-taught baker Kenneth Seah and his wife Delphine Liau, K ki (which literally means cake in Japanese) Cafe has also achieved for itself quite a reputation abroad as well having been featured in a couple of international publications.
This cafe sells an array of artisan cakes with a wide range of different flavours but staying true to their specialty of light and airy Japanese inspired mousse cakes. We came here on a Saturday afternoon for tea and was honestly quite spoilt for choice, faced with many displays of beautifully crafted and designed cakes in front of us. Delphine who was the lovely lady at the counter was quick to suggest a few of their popular items and even suggested the order in which we were to eat our cakes so as to not let the varying tastes and flavours overpower each other.
So the first creation we tried was the Kinabaru. Alternating layers of coconut mousse with passion fruit puree and a crunchy chocolate base, this is definitely not a usual combination of fruits in a dessert. However, the lightness of the coconut mousse that simply melts in your mouth with the sour twang of the passion fruit and the slight crunch of the base will indeed change your impression of this unlikely match that turned out more than compatible.
Next up was the Antoinette and Emily. The latter was only chosen because my friend insisted the bold red hues of the cake reminded him of Angry Birds and because of that, this cake was a must order!
