Green Pumpkin is a boutique Japanese bakery with some really intricate and unique desserts.

udQHjI1389192626I first tried them when I was at Kabe no Ana having lunch, and Green Pumpkin’s desserts where on the menu at a discounted rate with any main meal purchased.

We ordered the:

  • Chocolate Royale (chocolate and blueberry cake)
  • Chiboust Aux Fruits Rouge (strawberry and raspberry mousse cake)
  • Yuzu roll cake 9El6cR1389192800

All three were very well done. Notably the dollop of cream on the Chocolate Royale is light and airy and almost like marshmallow pillow consistency, which I really enjoyed.

Lastly the yuzu cake roll, yuzu is a citrus fruit and plant originating in East Asia. It is believed to be a hybrid of sour mandarinZHAjtI1389192754 and Ichang papeda. Beautiful, light and not too sweet.

I’d recommend Green Pumpkin desserts as an end to any meal, or the shop sells beautifully presented cakes for special occasions at around the $30 SGD price point.
