Queen of Hearts Cheesecake by Cat and the Fiddle


Cat and the Fiddle's gift box

Singapore's first online cheesecake specialist e-shop, Cat and the Fiddle, looks set to give brick and mortar cake shops a run for their money. Cat and the Fiddle is the brainchild of Daniel Tay, founder of Bakerzin who left to start a food supply company. One of his projects was to offer cheesecake lovers quality cakes at affordable prices through an online store. Prices range from $19.90 to $31.90 per cake at Cat and the Fiddle's e-shop with the option to customize the cakes for a small fee.

I was given a check out code to try a cheesecake with some optional add-ons, compliments of Cat and The Fiddle. Here's a photo of Cat and the Fiddle's specially decorated hexagon-shaped gift box with built-in carrier (add $3.50). Greeting Tags bearing different messages can be added on at $1.50 each. I chose the blue tag "Loves <3". Do note that add-ons are only available if you purchase the special cake box otherwise the cakes will usually be packed in basic brown boxes with a paper bag.

Tucked into a special compartment at the base of the carrier were the add-ons that you can use to customize your cake. I chose special candles that burn with a coloured flame ($1.20 for a pack of 6), stencil dust ($1.50 per packet - choose from white icing sugar or chocolate powder) and a stencil ($2 each). There was a new add-on when I placed my order. You can now buy a pack of 4 disposable plates and forks as well as a plastic knife at $2.50 (before tax).

I ordered a "Queen of Hearts" Strawberry Cheesecake because my niece loves strawberries. Here's how the cake looked like shortly after delivery, without any customization. I didn't realize that the sides of the box could be detached at this point and so I missed the opportunity to snap a pic of its side view. Later in the evening, I tried to dust icing sugar using the cat stencil. I realised that I'm completely lacking in talent in the cake decorating department so I stuck a pink candle for the increasingly impatient niece who wanted to blow out the candle and cut the cake. For a 21 month old baby, she sure is quite focused and was giving me the evil eye. From what I made out of her gibberish, it was probably toddler speak for "Get on with it already!"

The cheesecake arrived frozen. I was instructed to place it in the freezer if I intended to consume it the next day or into the refrigerator if I intended to consume it on the same day. Consumers are advised to wait for at least 3 to 4 hours for the cheesecake to be ready for consumption. The Queen of Hearts tasted like a Strawberry Jello Cheesecake albeit with a lighter and fluffier texture. It was very similar to a Japanese-style cheesecake and was a hit with my family members all of whom went for seconds after initially cutting a thin slice for themselves. The Queen of Hearts cheesecake is a Must-Try if you love Strawberry Cheesecake and Japanese-style Cheesecake.

Cat and the Fiddle offers 10 flavours. I'm wondering how some of the less commonly available flavours taste. As I need to lose weight, I'm hoping to "outsource" the tasting to my fearless foodie fans. Thus, I'm running an Easter giveaway for a few flavours that I found interesting so I can “taste” vicariously through my readers. If you win a cake, please tell me what you think by tagging @superfinefeline in your Instagram posts or by leaving a comment on my Facebook wall (www.facebook.com/superfinefeline.dotcom).
