It's my birthday and wifey ordered this cake for me. Date by Tate used to be the patisserie called Poem. But the owner (and chef of Tate, Vicky Lau) decided not to pursue a cake shop business, and turned it into a boutique selling expensive dinnerware, gifts, high-end bento boxes, and packaged food like financiers and rocher chocolate etc. Only two cakes are kept and this signature Shan Shui is one of them.Clearly, the biggest selling point is the look -- ink splash marbling on white background, with a red seal and a sprig of pink flowers. It definitely looks gorgeous. The light mint / sage green cake box with brass foil logo and the grey fabric wrapped base board also look sumptuous. The cake has a tea them to it, with Earl grey setting the key note and a layer of goji berry and osmanthus jelly in the centre. Honestly, it tastes so-so. First off, I'm not a big fan of cakes with too much gelatin. Sure, it's easier to handle and it's less likely to melt with lots of gelatin. But I just don't dig to springy, gummy like texture.Then, the flavours are just not that interesting. The goji berries are too bland to add any contrast -- not tangy enough. The lemony marshmallow ring actually taste more tart and interesting than the cake itself. All in all, it's a very small cake (probably 4 inch in diameter) and quite pricey for what you get -- a layered cake of chain-store quality... I think probably $100 is splurged on the packaging. continue reading
