photo BakeryChef-140520-v2__zps71109388.jpgAfter doing my marketing at Tiong Bahru market one morning last week, I decided to check out the Bakery Chef at Bukit Merah Central (Blk 161 Bukit Merah Central), which is just a short drive away from where I was.  I had signed up for two baking classes with Ming Kai, a baker with The Bakery Chef, over the last two weekends and he asked me to visit the bakery whenever I am in the vicinity.  A friend who works in that neighbourhood also tells me that their cakes are very good.  

The Bakery Chef is located in a row of HDB shophouses next to the Bukit Merah Library, with plenty of parking lots in the open-air carpark behind. A cosy and unpretentious bakery with sit-down space.  I love those paper pom-poms hanging from the ceiling.  I ordered a slice of Rainbow cake (that’s my latest craze even though it has been around for quite a while) and a cup of expresso, and enjoyed them while reading a book with the rain pouring outside.  

The bakery’s Rainbow cake is slightly different from the version made by Lynn’s Cakes & Coffee.  The sponge cake layers are moist, infused with a fragrant passionfruit flavour, with each layer separated by a thin layer of pastry cream and topped with a generous amount of mascarpone cream. Scrumptious.  I also took away their plain croissants (I like to freeze croissants and have them warmed up in the oven for breakfast) and macarons.  They were very good too.  I would have to go back with some friends to try more of their cakes and pastries.

I have just checked out their Facebook page and it seems that from time to time, they have dessert buffets and high tea buffets (with two seatings). Interesting.
