The year of Instagrammable desserts. That means over the top presentation, pretty elements, inclusion of candy flosses and syringes, some desserts in previously imaginable colours, for example bright blue.

Instagram has also got more (or perhaps less) exciting with flatlay food shots, pouring syrups, manicured hands holding anything and everything (typically soft-serves), and moody cafe shots.

On a side note, if you haven’t visited @DanielFoodDiary’s Instagram… LOL, do show some love. It’s 99% videos. More effort, usually videos get less LIKES too. But I want to present a different side of what is already in the blog, and I happen to be very persistent about it.

If you see any food you want to recommend (doesn’t have to be instagram-worthy), you can hashtag #DanielFoodDiary too!

Buck Tile St. Café
104 Faber Drive Singapore 129412
Tel: +65 65667058
Opening Hours: 12pm – 11pm (Mon – Tues, Thurs – Sun), Closed Wed

Blue Velvet Waffles
The Blue Velvet Waffles is a show-stopper. Yes, Blue, with Cookie Butter Speculoos ice cream and blue velvet white cocoa sauce. The colour and dessert that “Sadness” from Inside Out will find some joy in.

Cake Spade
1 Tras Link, #01-06 Orchid Hotel Singapore 078867 (Tanjong Pagar MRT)
+65 64443868
Opening Hours: 12pm – 9pm (Mon-Thurs), 12pm – 10:30pm (Fri-Sat), Closed Sun, PH
(Cake Shakes only available on Mondays to Fridays from 5pm & Saturdays from 1:30pm)

Cake Shake
Epic-looking milkshakes piled with ingredients of all kinds, WERE the trendy food on social media, till it all got jelak. The Unicorn Cake Shake topped with cotton candy looked like Marge Simpson had a dramatic hair job.

Karafuru Desserts
8 Jalan Klapa Singapore 199320 (North Bridge Road, near Hyde & Co)
Tel: +65 62941 4430
Opening Hours: 1pm – 10pm, last order 9:30pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Japanese-style Eclairs
Karafuru’s éclairs are re-imagined by traditional Japanese flavours. Thus compared to French éclairs which we are more familiar with, these are light in taste and smaller than their counterpart. The prettiest of them all is the Sakura Rose with hints of floral notes.

NOM Bistro & Bakery – No Other Meaning
Macpherson Community Club Level 1 – 400 Paya Lebar Way, Singapore 379131
Tel: +65 67473839
Opening Hours: 11:00 am – 11:00 pm

Checkered Rainbow Cake
NOM’s rainbow cake is one of the prettiest and most photogenic around. The sponge is moist and soft, probably better than half of the rainbow cakes out there. Slightly too sweet for me though. Checkered version available on occasional basis.

Non Entrée Desserts
204 Rangoon Road, Singapore 218451 (Farrer Park MRT)
Opening Hours: 2pm – 10pm (Tue-Thu), 2pm – 11pm (Fri), 12pm – 11pm (Sat), 12pm – 10pm (Sun), Closed Mon

Chocolate Avalanche
Made up of 70% Valrhona chocolate lava, chocolate soil, almond nougatine and orange infused vanilla ice cream, the way to eat it was to stab the chocolate lava cake and almond nougatine with a knife to create the ‘avalanche’.

Berry Ricotta Hotcake
Sama Sama. The Berry Ricotta Hotcake looked like a huge potted plant with strawberries, blueberries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Montana Brew Bar
1 Selegie Road #02-25, Singapore 188306 (10 min walk from Dhoby Ghaut MRT)

Red Velvet Waffle Stack
If you have not been to the revamped Montana Singapore, you must. The expanded Montana introduces some new waffle creations that contain bold, creative, unexpected flavours. One of the all-time favourite is still Red Velvet Stacked Waffles, with choices of crispy or fluffy soufflé-inspired base.

The Cold Pantry
131 Rangoon Road Singapore 218409
Opening Hours: 12-9pm (Mon, Wed-Thurs), 12pm-10pm (Fri-Sun), Closed Tues

Root Beer Waffle
The Cold Pantry had pushed their limits with a totally instagrammable and awesomely sounding (with a touch of nostalgia) Chocolatey Waffle with a hint of Root Beer topped with freshly churned charcoal vanilla ice cream drizzled with… chocolate Root Beer sauce ($12.50).

Sweet Monster Singapore
Plaza Singapura, #B2-49, Singapore 238839 (Dhoby Ghaut MRT)

Popcorn Softserve
Softserve covered with popcorn. Sweet vs savory. Hot vs cold. Smooth vs crunchy. Using at least 75% organic milk in the icecream, it was thick, rich, distinctively milky and slightly on the sweeter side. Popcorn slightly lao hong though. (Not as crisp).

Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm (Mon-Sun)
