Spatula Bakery

For some time now, I've been following Spatula Bakery on Instagram, after my cousin told me to check out their 'Rosette' cakes, which she contemplate ordering for her bro's wedding.

Then I later saw that they also make these gorgeous cupcakes. Further on, these young Muslim ladies also open their own little shop along Joo Chiat Road. How can I not get excited, tell me?

The varieties of cupcakes were pretty interesting. Luscious flavours with quirky names. Got me really keen.

They have this 'cake in a jar' that's similar to the one I had in KL and also those from Wondermilk. I think those are available only on weekends. They also do custom cakes. You can check out their Instagram page.

One afternoon, during lunch, we happen to have our meal in that area so my colleagues and I cajoled our other colleague (the driver), who is the type of male who's doesn't give much care for desserts; to drive us there.

Almost missed their black & white signage with cute & whimsical 'bric a brac' at their display window. Mostly decorative cakes display & tiers.

Tempting you much…?

The flavours available that day was: 'Jazzy' Jaffa, 'Rockin' Red Velvet, 'Saucy' Salted Caramel, Cookie Crunch, Strawberry Sundae, 'Pure' PB, 'Mischievous' Milo Dino, 'Bouncy' Butterscotch & 'Charismatic' Caramel Macchiato.

…Don't say that I didn't warn you about their quirky names!

We got all agog when seeing all these varieties and decided to get 1/2 dozen, meaning each of us will choose 2 flavours.

The packaging

Inside the box

'Saucy' Salted Caramel -  'Rockin' Red Velvet -  'Jazzy' Jaffa
Cookie Crunch - 'Bouncy' Butterscotch - 'Charismatic' Caramel Macchiato

Closer look

My colleague Sri had the 'Jazzy' Jaffa, which is actually Chocolate-Orange cupcake. 'Jaffa' refers to a variant of orange. She also chose the 'Rockin' Red Velvet.

Another colleague, Roza chose the Cookie Crunch - 'Bouncy' Butterscotch.

I chose 'Charismatic' Caramel Macchiato - which must have been like a tribute to that popular coffee flavour… coincidentally a favourite of mine (esp. from Starbucks!). And 'Saucy' Salted Caramel. Argh, what do I do about my penchant for anything Salted Caramel??!

Ready to attack

Yes, we had our tea break amongst rolls of paper and paper cutter…

In the foreground is my Caramel Macchiato, then it's Sri's Red Velvet and lastly, it's Roza's Butterscotch cupcakes.

My personal take on these cupcakes?

Well… It's best that you try them out yourself. Everyone have their preferred type when it comes to cakes and my opinion doesn't really go for all. 

All I can say is that the cake seem a bit denser that what I'm used to. Or maybe we got them on a bad day. I guess this warrant another visit? Maybe to also check out their 'cake-in-a-jar'?

I tried their cupcakes, totally non edible. Their cakes are uncooked and frosting taste weird and overly sweet! Sorry - not recommended.

Hi Anon,

So it wasn't that I got them on a bad day? Their cupcakes are like that? Okayyy…

I tried 1/2 dozen of their cupcakes and sadly... all taste just weird. It isn't probably just you. My sis and I who are avid dessert eaters just were turned off. We tried Sweet Tooth Addiction next door which was way better. Try Sweet Tooth addiction cake jar and their sandwiches and their choc pies. Owner Feeza is also very welcoming unlike Spatula's service.
