I haven’t had the chance to try The Audacious Cakery as they are closed on Sundays. [P.S they are now opened on Sundays. Do check their website for their opening hours] Found the chance to visit them when I managed to end my working day early and wanted to enjoy a leisurely tea break. When I arrived at around 4pm on a weekday, the place was packed (even outdoor seats were taken). Seats were rather limited as there were about 4 tables in total only? In any case, most of the customers looked like hip & fashionably dressed teenagers who perhaps came to the neighbourhood to try out the new chic food outlets.
With no seats available for eat-in, I packed a Matcha cupcake and a Chocolate Souffle tart back home. The box used to pack a single cupcake was the American Chinese Takeout box, fits 1 cupcake perfectly. The matcha cupcake had subtle green tea flavoured cream on top of the moist & soft cupcake. The chocolaty tart was rich and thick.
The 2nd time I drop by again on another weekday after lunch, this time round the shop was empty. But since I just had my lunch, can’t down the pastries and had to pack back the Lemon Meringue tart and a Raspberry and Devil’s Food cupcake.
Lemon Meringue tart was zesty enough to cause slight squirm on my face upon first bite. The raspberry cream had more sweetness compared to the sourness of lemon meringue tart.
Would like to try the cakes in future.

Foret Noir (Black Forest) – Alcoholic Valrhona dark chocolate mousse, Kirsh soaked cherries and Kirsh Cream on a dark Valrhona chocolate genoise and Faith Japanese green tea and fragrant black sesame mousse on a green tea sponge.
The Foret Noir had rich chocolatey mousse while the Faith tasted slightly mild. I didn’t like the texture of the green tea mousse which was a bit “kueh” like.

First time enjoying the cakes seated at the shop!
Tried the Zacharie Mango passionfruit cheese mousse with a mango passionfruit centre on a ginger biscuit base and Kuri – Alcoholic Chestnut mousse with chestnut bits and a dash of whisky paired with salted caramel and coffee mousse on a Valrhona chocolate sponge.
Usually one must like chestnut to order the Kuri. Chestnuts have a delicate, sweet acquired taste. But the chestnut taste in the cake is quite subtle, although can still taste the mild earthy flavour. Alcohol taste is also pretty mild.
Zacharie had more of passionfruit taste than mango. Good to have the biscuit base as it provided more texture to the cake.
