These magical looking Galaxy Cakes, in midnight colours of dark blue, purple with silver sparkles, are sometimes termed as “Galaxy Mirror Cakes”. Sometimes you can see your own reflections (pretty or pretty scary?), and these cakes look set to be the next IN-thing for dessert.
Comments such as ”So chio”, “So mystical” and “Simi also Galaxy” start painting the social media skies.
The rise in popularity is said to be related to Star Wars, where people would order these intergalactic cakes for themed parties.

Actually, one of the better Galaxy Cakes around, in terms of the complete package. The Twilight was like how its name implied. The cake brought my friends and I out of reality and back.
Containing Cointreau orange curd, chocolate sponge, and marbling chocolate mousse.
However, during the second visit, I thought that the glaze wasn’t as stunning, and orange a tad off-balance.

Galaxy with a difference. This comes with Taro.
Sugargaus’ Taro Galaxy ($8.80 per slice) comes with a stunning galaxy mirror glaze over layers of taro sponge and swiss meringue buttercream.
Though I found this slightly too sweet for my liking, so not exactly yum-yum for me.I expected that taro layer to be softer and more moist (even like orh nee), which would bring the overall taste a level up.
Plus point: their cakes are supposedly made traditionally from scratch without using any pre-mix.

Cream & Custard, known for their Strawberry Watermelon Cake, has stepped up their game with the Galaxy cake.
This cake has propelled to further fame after and Insider Food video went vira.
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.
