winter treats

lebkuchen @ Q-Bake

Sugar and spices & gingerbread cookies -- nothing evokes the Christmas spirit more.  I wanted to keep it for a while and hang it on my walls but alas, I was too hasty and ate it the same day.

cinnamon crumb cake @ OMG!

Oh My Goodness is "an organic cupcakery" and yet another out-of-home business run by some expat woman (Jenna Suharto, formerly of Brooklyn).  The cinnamon crumb cake was more like a mini-muffin ("mini" being the key word here), neatly tucked away in its own box.  Bigger is definitely better here.

apple pie @ Claire's

For a bakery production, it was spectacular.  Huge chunks of apple with cinnamon sprinkles all over.  Cold, yes, but hearty.  Each triangle could have been a meal in itself.

Style: Food court stall

banana pudding @ Southern Belle

Had a real sit-down meal for the first time in a month at Southern Belle last month.  While the banana pudding had a distinctly banana flavor to it, I preferred C.'s pecan pie (no pic).  The whipped cream was rather bland, and there was too much sponge cake underneath.  I didn't even touch the ice cream. 

Address: 433 Changle Road x Xiangyang Road, Shanghai

froyo bursts @ Babela Cafe

I have no idea what to call this.  It's basically yogurt-flavored soft serve ice cream topped with sweetened taro and orange balls that explode in your mouth.  No, those balls are not ikura.  No, they are not gumballs.  They are not filled with liquid.  They are tasteless (slightly sour? tangy? salty? -- I don't even remember) and simply explode in your mouth.  Fun to eat, though kinda pointless.
