Not exploding Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy Cakes is the latest dessert trend sweeping across Instagram.

As Rainbow Foods are becoming so ‘last year’, patisseries and cafés are introducing bluish-purplish glittery “Galaxy Cakes” inspired by night skies and the milky way.

Some say the trend is due to the resurgence of Star Wars, and this is perhaps only the start in Singapore.

Galaxy Cake
Cream & Custard, known for their Strawberry Watermelon Cake, has stepped up their game with the Galaxy cake.

This “Galaxy” is a chocolate base cake, made with 72% Valrhona dark chocolate blackcurrant jelly. For those who like your cakes alcoholic, you would be glad to know the centre contains rum-soaked cherry.

Slightly sour in the middle, very rich overall. I think if C&C can manage their proportions well, the Galaxy would be another best-seller.

Shiberty Bakes

Opening Hours: 12pm – 9.30pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Galaxy Macarons
Lifestyle blogger-baker Shiberty has been making interesting flavours for macarons for a number of years. She certainly knows what “instagrammable” means.

This concept is “a taste of the stars with every bite”, with a blueberry-flavoured taste.

The macaron shells are chewy yet not too soft, with fillings less significantly sweet than other brands outside.

(Shhhhhhh….. Shiberty will be creating one more galaxy product which will be launched in 2 weeks.)

Galaxy Cupcakes
The Galaxy Cupcakes ($16.80 for a box of 6 mini cupcakes) are prepared using 3 to 4 colours of cream representing milky way into the piping bag, finished off with shimmer dust to enhance the galaxy look.

The key difference from the usual cream cupcakes is that the colours are placed in controlled irregularity such that the right hues blend together in a beautiful gradient.

For the base cupcake flavour, chocolate is used so that the darker hues will bring out the galaxy colours.

D’Good Café
391 Orchard Road #B1-56, Takashimaya S.C., Ngee Ann City Singapore 238872

The 65-seater café at Takashimaya S.C., Ngee Ann City houses two concepts – a London Tube and an English Garden. Apart from coffee, it is dedicated to specialty tea.

This is a $15 Spiral Galaxy drink. Maybe it will take you to space.

The gimmicky mocktail is a concoction of green tea and grape juice with glitters.
