I had a blast baking for Dapper Coffee, but it’s time to say goodbye as I have other commitments. I’m really thankful for all the wonderful people I met at dapper, the opportunities I had to experiment and to all the customers who enjoyed the cakes! I absolutely enjoy baking with British style flavours and also experimenting with new ones. To all the homesick people I’m glad that my cakes reminded you of home!
Honestly, when you’re really running a legitimate business or working for one, you do have to put certain fantasies aside and work with whatever you have. This chocolate raspberry cake adorned with rose buds and dried grape fruit sure doesn’t look like a chocolate cake, but that’s all we had.
I’m so sorry if you’re wondering why there’s grapefruit and roses on a chocolate raspberry cake. But I must say the dried grape fruit look cute stuck on the sides like tiny fan-shaped windows. The (self-declared) house specialties sitting behind are the matcha berry and twix cake, also lemon meringue tartlets and the new Favourite cos it’s Ramadan season and dates are dirt cheap – sticky banana and date pudding with vanilla-rum sauce. It’s kind of a cross between banana bread and date pudding (cake). The sauce is a must! Although it’s a replacement for a nice heaping scoop of ice cream, it ain’t too shabby either.
My super duper talented secondary school friend, Christine, offered to let me bake for Dapper Coffee which she’s running now at Amoy Street and this is where I currently bake at (psst, we are also looking into holding classes here!)
All pictures were taken by Christine and Sufie ^.^ All cakes decorated by me.
I will just let the rest of the photos speak for themselves!
The menu at Dapper Coffee is ever changing and super mouth watering and the drinks are so bloody brilliant as well! Really love the infusions they make with their dehydrated fruit. And their cold brew is banging. It’s a pity that their shop lot is on the second level and passers-by can’t peer into their super chill instagram worthy interior. They are not your usual cafe. I urge everyone to just pop by, at least once!
