Ovomilo - A Dessert To Satisfy My Chocolate Craving
When I was in Jakarta I was looking for a dessert to satisfy my chocolate craving. Chance upon Collette & Lola and their displays of beautiful cakes swayed me to give this pretty cafe a try. The counter staff recommended the Ovomilo cake which honestly looks quite dangerous - dangerous in a good way. Wasn't disappointed with her recommendation but one word of caution - the top and side layers are rather thick (of chocolate - yum!) so be ready to slice into it and destroy the entire slice of cake in the process. In any case, my deconstructed chocolate OVOMILO cake slice was still tasty despite the sorry state of destruction. Will definitely visit this dessert place when I'm back in Jakarta.

Sweets for The Sweet-tooth
Coming to the place with some friends for cakes. The place is ok and instagram worthy with unique decoration. The cake is nice, quite too sweet for my taste.

Creative, Innovate and Amazing cakes.
The cakes here are really innovative. At first looks, it seems like one of those Japanese Cute animal character places and made me wonder if they were just selling the concept and how good would the cakes be. I am so glad that we decided to sit down and try their cakes. Now how innovative are the cakes. I had an Oreo Cheese cake. What I did not expect was that the baker had made the cake to have a similar texture to the Oreo. i.e a harder, biscuit crust as the bottom layer...so the cake has oreo's in it, on it and is baked like an oreo. My wife had the cutely named berry blush and that was baked like a berry too..jelly like exterior crust to mimic the harder outer skin of berries and a nice creamy inside...the amount of thought in not only delivering flavours but the texture of the named cake was amazing. We went again the next day and had different cakes with the same results. Its a feast for the eyes, and the taste and texture mimics whatever it is named after..
