Does the quote ‘Life is too short to say no to cake’ resonate with you? If it does, you will be pleased with my latest find which lies in the heartlands of Toa Payoh — The Twisted Trio. The cafe is started by three pastry chefs who have known each other for a long time.
Although they are the new kid on the block, The Twisted Trio has already attracted some attention. Take note that they do more takeaways. The space inside the cafe is quite limited, and they only have a small table that can sit about 3-4 adults.
They offer chilled cakes as well as other sweet treats that are nicely displayed on the counter top. These include biscotti, cookies, pound cakes and brownies! They also have a simple drinks menu and their coffee beans are from Brawn & Brains Cafe.
The first cake that caught my eye was definitely the Blue Pea Passionfruit Cake ($5.50). What drew me to it was how pretty it was! The light blue cake is layered with yellow passionfruit cream — just the perfect colour combination. The cake was more dense than fluffy. If you like sour treats, you might enjoy this! It was a tad too sour for my liking.
The Lychee Rose Cake ($5.50) sounded like a a nice fragrant cake that I’d like to sink my teeth into. I was not expecting much from this, but the first bite really caught me by surprise! There were big chunks of lychee pieces studded in the layers of cake, and there was also quite a distinct taste of rose. The cream layered between the cake is not the typical cream that we so often encounter. It was more jelly-like, somewhat like the texture of custard and I really loved it!
I really like how The Twisted Trio put so much effort into making their cakes so pretty and enticing. The Watermelon Rose Cake ($8) is definitely Instagram worthy! Like the Lychee Rose, this cake also had a nice floral notes. The cream was not too overpowering and was very light. There were two thin layers of cake and a huge piece of watermelon sandwiched between the layers of cream. This cake was really refreshing! It was also quite moist and easy to eat. The cake layers were semi soaked with watermelon juice, yet it was not too overwhelmingly sweet!
Lastly, I decided to try the Dark & Milk Choc Brownie ($4). It was very rich and dense. The brownie almost melted in my mouth, even without me chewing much. The bittersweet brownie was baked to perfection, with a slight crunchy top.
I will definitely be back for more!
