Lynda Ann – Quality Cakes in Bedok North Street
The ambrosial aroma of butter meringe frosting hovered in the air at Lynda Ann Cakes, a small storefront nestled in a quiet neighbourhood of Bedok. Welcoming me is Lynda Ann, which I thought she was the owner’s daughter. But the truth is, she is the owner and Lynda Ann is her name!
I stared at her, my expression totally bewildered. This lady who is in her late 20s started baking since she was 14 years old. She said her mother didn’t buy much cakes, so she went to the library everyday to read recipe books so that she can bake at home. In 2012, she opened this small bakery and prides itself with cakes and pastries made with love.
I was literally blown away by Lynda’s Pandan Perfection ($5 per slice). Four solid layers of moist pandan cake made using pure pandan juice, sandwiched with light refreshing gula melaka fresh cream and roasted peanuts. Not a big fan of roasted peanuts, thought it will be better to just go with shredded coconut. But well, I have no complaints over its soft sponge layers.
Its signature is the carrot walnut cake with cream cheese. This moist cake is deliciously light and nutty. Just a little blemish for me is, it has a little too much cream. If not, it will be perfect. For young ladies who love colours, you can go for their rainbow cake ($5 per slice) or the rich and cream peanut butter cake ($5 per slice).
One of the tweaks of Lynda’s excellence is using Italian Butter Meringue for the frosting which is lighter on the palate than traditional butter cream frosting. This is obvious in its range of cupcakes. They also have freshly baked biscotti and cookies. All the above cakes come in bigger size as well. You can see that Lynda doesn’t really go fanciful designs like many other shops, but this neighbourhood bakery is worthy to visit because of the quality of ingredients used that’s truly made with love.
