*Pris and I passed by Durian Mpire, gaped at their cute durian cakes and mousse, and decided to continue our catching up here. They sell a wide variety of durian cakes, mousse, pies, puffs etc, in many different kinds of shapes and sizes. So we snagged a table and ordered some items to share.

First there was the Durian Mousse (SGD$4.30)  which came in a really adorable shape of a half of an opened durian. The green shell and yellow flesh were cleverly sculptured, every line so fine. The mousse was luxuriantly aromatic with durian's distinctive flavor, and creamy smooth.

Then we tried the Super Punkhead Cake (SGD$5.00) - I had chosen this simply purely because of its really cute looks. The cream was made into spikes, making the entire creation look so mean - but the spongy soft cake tasting deliciously of durian's sweetness was gentle on the palate.

Next in line was the Durian Coil (SGD$5.00), a golden yellow coating that tasted like crepe skin. The interior was a roll of soft durian cake, fluffy soft and every mouthful was like a durian dream.

Finally, the Blackforest Cake (SGD$4.00) selected by me because I simply could not resist the temptation of chocolate and dark cherries together. This one was milder in flavor, perhaps because of the stronger flavor of the durian obliterating the tastebud. The cake was mousse soft and cottony light, easy to eat.

Anyway, this is the place for lovers of durian and durian lovers - affordable durian desserts in really cute designs, available in larger cake sizes for other special occasions as well. Well, the durian pastries are not Goodwood Park or Four Seasons' league, of course, but the satisfaction is by no way lesser, trust me.
