Great Place for Christmas Pastries

This is definitely the place to buy traditional cakes & pies for Christmas. Last year, I tasted a piece of pecan pie, loved it so much and ended up buying a box as a gift. From time to time, I will also buy some bread when I walked pass the bakery. The mini English mince pie on display is especially delicious.

A few days ago, someone just treated me to tea. Since there's a set meal for tea & 1 piece of cake, I ordered honeybush caramel tea and a slice of raspberry chocolate cake. This is my first time trying their cake and tea. The raspberry chocolate cake is soft, moist and not too sweet. The top layer is hard with even layers of sacher chocolate sponge and raspberry puree below. Taste is balanced, a nice blend of both flavours. As for the tea, it smells sweet and fragrant. It tasted sweet and light, with a hint of caramel.

Overall, I'm very satisfied and will add this to the list of places to buy cakes. As for having tea, it's quite cramp due to very limited seating.

Yummy cakes and sweet breads

Not exactly the place I'll go to if I have a craving for sweets, but I must say that SwissBake serves really good bread and cakes. Each time I spot a SwissBake outlet, I never fail to walk past it without first going in to have a good look at their various cakes and breads. If you pay attention, you'd notice that nearly all their breads *gleam*, and that makes them all the more appealing. It's as though the breads there have a coating of some sweet glaze or caramelised sugar.

I love their varieties of sweet twirly, croissant-like breads, some of which contain chewy pieces of dried fruit. Their real croissants (the standard, savoury kind) are good too, crisp, buttery, flaky, airy, and everything else that a good croissant should be. But it's better if you grab these croissants earlier in the day than later at night, by which time they might not taste as good.

I love their cheesecakes too, especially their strawberry and oreo cheesecakes, which are rich and dense and creamy. The oreo cheesecake might be a tad too sweet for those who don't have a sweet tooth though. The strawberry cheesecake is a lovely combination of tart strawberries and luxuriant cream cheese. I ask for takeaways of their cheesecakes sometimes when I don't have the time to visit some of my favourite cake places and cafes to satisfy my constant cake cravings.

Those who are fans of European breads (the sourdough and wholegrain varieties) should look out for what loaves they have on display. They even have rye, my personal favourite, which very few bakeries sell.

Love the cakes!

Swissbake is one of my favourite bakeries - their cakes and pastries are absolutely delicious. I actually prefer their cakes to those of BreadTalk, as I feel they are of higher quality.

My personal favourite is their strawberry cheesecake which is a must-try, even if you don't quite like cheesecakes. Swissbake's strawberry cheesecake is utterly irresistible, and is also very affordable. I don't like cheesecakes all that much, but Swissbake's strawberry cheesecake is an exception - and it will change your mind too, if you don't like cheesecakes.

To me, Swissbake's pastries are a cut above the rest.

Delightful delicacies!

My whole family loves the pastries and bread from Swissbake, and I make it a point to purchase some for breakfast if I happen to pass by one of its' outlets. What I really like about Swissbake is that is offers genuine cakes with genuine ingredients. And they all taste so good. If you're looking for a cake, I would recommend their Paradiso Di Nocciola. This signature cake of theirs contains Hazelnut rocker, rum and more. As a hazelnut lover, this cake satisfies my taste buds completely!

The staff at Swissbake are usually quite friendly, and would entertain your questions about the various pastries they have. They know well what they're selling, and are even able to recommend pastries based on your requirements!

Just a note, Swissbake often sells it's pastries at half price after 8/9pm, so do drop by after work if you want some bargains.

Finally, we have someplace to go for delicious bakes!

If you happen to have read my other reviews, you would know that i am an absolute sucker for breads and pastries alike. They just captivate me.

Likewise, any bake shop i will always make it a point to walk in to look at their selection of breads. The bread is so versatile, you can make and fill it with anything you want, it is up to the baker to decide. That is what i like about breads. The idea of swiss bake selling a different kind of breads and pastries intrigued me, they also sell cookies, cakes and such and all were fabulous, in my opinion.

Their cookies, which came in smiley faces, were so delicious i can't even describe my surprise. Yes, surprise. The smiley shapes they came in gave me some doubt to its taste initially. i always have the impression that this kind of shapes of cookies were only good to look at but always fail in the taste department.

Boy, was i wrong.

Amazing Pecan Pie

Thanksgiving has just ended, and of course at the dinner table was the traditional favourite: pecan pie. Who can resist pecan pie?

Most store bought pecan pies have a really thick crust and less nuts. (probably to maximize profit, I'm guessing) But the pecan pie from Swissbake had a lovely thin crust. It was buttery and flaky like all good crusts but it was thin enough that you could get a good portion of pecans and the caramelized brown sugar too. The pie was phenomenal, probably the best store bought pecan pie I've ever tried. Definitely getting another one for thanksgiving next year!

Small sized cakes

I like swissbake because of their small sized cakes which feeds 4 people just right. Other confectionaries seldom sell cakes of such petite sizes. When I first bought an oreo cheesecake from swissbake, I didn't have high expectations though it looked pretty appetizing. However, when I had my first bite, I was pleasantly surprised. The cake was soft and fluffy, with the right amount of cream cheese. There were generous amounts of chunky oreo bits too. I am glad that the birthday boy enjoyed the cake very much.

However, the downside is that the cakes are rather pricey for that small size. With that price, you could get a bigger cake from reputable house brands elsewhere. Also, swissbake sells pastries and buns which look pretty mouth watering too.

High class pastries

High class bread, not in the sarcastic sense. The bread and pastries swiss bake makes are really fantastic and tastes really good! The fragrance from their freshly baked pastries whenever you walk past any of their outlets would definitely be etched in your memories. It's almost like how a pungent smell would remind you of durians (But of course, in a good way for this context).

Most of the time, their pastries would be freshly baked which make them taste REALLY good. My personal favourite is the chocolate roll and the beef puff which is always kept warm near the counter. Although a bit on the expensive side, it's a must try!

Good place for breakfast!

Just went to Swissbake earlier today for breakfast as you can get 50% off your drinks if you make your order before 11am. Had a ham and cheese croissant, chocolate doughnut and mini chocolate roll.

The hot chocolate is definitely worth the cost, since it is 50% off. The size of the drink is quite big, and tastes nice. Would prefer if it tasted more chocolatey though! Amongst all the pastries, the ham and cheese croissant would be the winner of the day. It is crispy, buttery and flavourful without a doubt. It is also quite a large piece as compared to the size of an average croissant. I didn't like the chocolate doughnut too much. What ruined it was the filling; although it was generous a generous amount, it had an artificial taste, more like chocolate flavoured buttercream. Lastly, the chocolate roll was really good! In contrast to the chocolate doughnut, the filling for this was nice - now that is real chocolate! Would be perfect if the pastry required less force when biting though.

If you are unsure what or where to eat for breakfast, maybe you can make Swissbake your destination for a good one!

selling mainly cakes, but their other main dishes and beverages are worth trying as well

Swissbake not only sells an assortment of cakes but also main courses and beverages at certain outlets.

Consisting of mainly chocolate with a hint of alcohol in it, I like the opera cake the most. I preordered a 3kg opera cake for my 21st. In place of the word Swissbake, they had my name nicely italised on the chocolate piece. It is a little crunchy, with a burst of flavours of chocolate, almond, alcohol and crispy biscuit at the base. Having too much of this cake can be overwhelming though, and the cake served more than 70 guests at my birthday although it was expected to serve only about 50 people. It is a unique cake with simple design.

The staff were helpful in assisting me choose the most suitable size. Occasionally, I will get the smaller slices, selling at 2 for $5 just to satisfy my chocolate cake cravings. It is also possible to have meals at some of the outlets, to enjoy a Western fare with Gryphon tea.
