Today I want to share about my new found find – Mar_velicious Patisseries a home bakery founded by two best friends Jet and Amirah with whom I got acquainted by chance.
My first encounter was their brownies and its simply love at first bite! The texture was perfect- moist and yet not too soft, chocolate melts running on the sides but wasn’t overly sweet best paired with a scoop of rum & raisin ice cream making it simply divine.
Their sea salt chocolate chip cookies are equally yummy – sweet and savory at the same time. Highly addictive I must say, can’t just stop at just one you will want more. Their peppermint chocolate chip cookies are refreshing – don’t worry the peppermint isn’t overpowering.
oh guess what the do Ondeh-Ondeh cake too!! I was so over the moon when I found out they make that. The smell of pandan is so fragrant, texture of the sponge is dense and moist, drizzles of gula melaka seals the deal.

Mar_velicious Patisseries – one bite is all it takes
What I really appreciate most about Mar_velicious Patisseries is having the option to customize the sweetness of the bakes to my preference. Don’t get me wrong I have a sweet tooth and desserts are important to me a meal is never complete without desserts. But perhaps with age I prefer low sugar bakes.
There are so many reasons to chose home bakeries over commercial ones – personalized, creative, the use of quality ingredients and most importantly its baked with passion and love.
Check them out on Facebook and Instagram for your next event or simply for some home indulgence.
Have a new routine on Sundays which is bringing my gal for private tuition which last about 2hours so what do we do? My man and I went cafe exploring of course!
Our first exploration led us to Atlas Coffeehouse situated along Bukit Timah Road.
The interior decor is simple yet classy and oozes a zen effect – cement polished finishings on one side and jaggered tiles on the other. Natural daylight spills in from the full height glass windows creating a warm and cozy ambience. Staff are friendly, jovial and the barista is really pretty too (sorry didn’t take a picture of her too shy to do it).
They have a decent selection on the menu and the serving are quite well proportioned.
We are both bacon lovers so naturally we chose “BBQ Bacon Baked Beans on Toast” for him and “Buttermilk Waffles with Candied Bacon & Vanilla Ice Cream” for me.
The texture of the waffles reminds me of A&W~ Crispy on the outside moist and fluffy on the inside. The fusion combination of savoury and sweet played out well and had me licking my plate clean.
We both had cappuccinos and was pleasantly surprised that we had different coffee art isn’t that cool?
I would say this is a good find and I’m definitely coming back again to try out the other waffles combination.
