The Whimsical Food Fair at Marina Square is just another reason to celebrate Instagram-worthy treats this season. With cakes from some of our favourite cafes like Rainbow Works and even some savoury gems we’ve discovered, these dishes are certainly both beautiful and delicious. The fair will go on from November 22 to November 25, so be sure to head down this weekend to check it out. Scroll through the gallery to see our favourite picks.
The Wicked Cream
What’s better than being in the clouds? Eating them. We don’t mean real clouds, but marshmallows. This stall has all your favourite desserts, topped with marshmallows. Their Signature Roasted Ice Cream S’more ($10) is ice cream covered in chocolate with a layer of torched marshmallow. The Hot Chocolate Earl Grey with Torched Marshmallow ($8) is our favourite pick. A cup of rich hot chocolate topped with loads of marshmallow and chocolate sauce, it’s perfect for this rainy weather.
If you’re looking for whimsical foods, they’ve got you covered. This cute mini Unicorn Cake ($8.90) is a moist butter cake topped with silky cream, perfect for people who don’t like things that are too sugary. The DIY Mermaid Cupcake ($7) was fun to assemble. You get your choice of cream, tail and sprinkles to put together for this gorgeous cupcake.
This fun creation is their Unicorn Egglet ($10, which includes an egg waffle, ice cream, marshmallows and a cute balloon. The waffle was warm and fluffy, with a large serving of ice cream, making it perfect to share. Try their Edible Balloon ($8.50) that changes your voice to record a fun video to share on Instagram.
Don’t have a sweet tooth? Try this stall’s Chicken Scotch Eggs ($6) that come with a side of salad and prawn crackers for a savoury surprise. The eggs, while crispy on the outside, is soft and runny inside, and goes perfectly well with the crackers.
This Torched Mentaiko Takoyaki ($7) takes umami to the next level, with octopus stuffed balls, drizzled with a generous serving of mentaiko sauce and bonito flakes. They also have sour cream and cheese sauce versions for only $6.
