The Icing Room is probably a familiar name to many of those who have been there to decorate plain cream cakes. This bakery allows you to buy plain cream cakes and decorate it yourself. A cake stand is provided along with piping tools and cute edible ornaments. It adds a nice personal touch to the cake as compared to commercialized ones in other bakeries. That's the only plus point I have to say about this bakery.

The cream cake is really loaded with cream. Way too creamy, the sponge is almost soaked with cream, if that makes sense. I'm really not a fan of the cakes. Look past the cute and sincere decorations, the cake is really not worth wasting your precious calories for! The main ready-made cakes are also so-so. As a girl, I am obviously suckered into the pink and princess looking packaging but these cakes and baked good are not up to standard. I would give a 10 for presentation and maybe half of 10 for the actual taste. If you are not fussy with your cakes, this place should be okay. Otherwise, I would recommend other places such as Antoinette!

Frankly, whenever i pass by one of this icing room outlets, there will always be a lot of people, young and old, men and women, standing around and trying to make this unique cake for some reason. I only have one thought in my mind. "Just another marketing gimmick to tap on people's desire to create a unique gift".

I will give kudos to the shop for coming up with this idea to let people design their own cake. In terms of pricing, it aren't too expensive. The small one cost less than $13, and the big one is less than $30 and you get enough ingredients for you to decorate the cake accordingly to your own wishes. But a cake should still taste like one. I have tasted the vanilla flavour before. And i must say that i am not very impressed by the taste and texture of the cake.

The cake tasted too sweet and the texture feels rough, something i do not expect from an established brand. I think it's not just about the diy of this cake, ultimately a cake should still taste like one to complement the uniqueness of the cake.
