DIY your own pancakes @ Slappy Cakes

I have been blogging quite a number of food reviews in the past, but I came across a really interesting restaurant that I would like to share!! 

DIY PANCAKES @ Slappy Cakes
(Because eating pancakes by itself is just too mainstream)

Oh, they are just my absolute love! Fluffy delicious pancakes is always one of my top all-time favourites! The same goes for Waffles too! 

But I have never imagined myself "drawing" with pancake mix! Drawing on paper, canvas, walls and even cakes, yup I've tried all those before. But doing pancake art? That's something new for me! And I was so looking forward to it! 

At Slappy Cakes, you can order from 5 different pancakes batter flavours - Buttermilk, whole grain, peanut butter, chocolate, zucchini for $8 each! It would be perfect for groups of 4 or more as you get to try out different flavours. 

We ordered Buttermilk (The essential one for pancake), Chocolate (for the colours), and Peanut butter. 

And there are so many toppings to choose from!!! Some of my favourites - Strawberries, Choc chips, Hazelnuts, WHIP CREAM!!!! I can't believe we focused on every sweet toppings hahaha. *Sweet tooth* I should try out the savoury toppings in the future! 

There's also a variety of ALL DAY BREAKFAST for you to choose from if you're being pulled into Slappy cakes but unfortunately you don't really enjoy pancakes as much hahaha. Just like my dad.

YESSSS! We're all ready for some pancake drawing wooooo!!! We've got all the toppings ready! 

I think I sound really overexcited but it's ART AND FOOD! How to not love?!

I've probably got some talent in drawing haha, but drawing on this stove didn't seem as easy as I expected. Pardon my not-so-cute drawings hahah.. But practice makes perfect! 

Here's my first attempt of drawing a girl teddy bear! With strawberry as its ribbons and choc chips as its eyes and nose. 

I'm showing you my best 2 drawings first, because the rest are just not up to standard. HAHA

Kitty says MEOW.

And here's my chinese name! So calligraphy-alike hahaha (:

My dad drew this face hahaha ;)

My bro suggested the game of tic-tac-toe, but because the surface area was so small, the pancake had a cookie texture when it overcooked. But what is good about Slappy Cakes is that their pancake don't get burnt easily even when you cook it for very long! 

I really love this new and unique concept of drawing your own pancakes and then eating it! 
It really brings the dining experience to a whole new level! Not only is it perfect for family outings with kids, but it can also be a fun and interesting session with a group of friends where you can share your talent and drawing ideas on the dining stove. 

Although the pancakes were not super fantastic, I think that the creative concept compensated for the quality. But I feel that it could have a much better experience if the pancake colour choices can be expanded and provide us with a variety of colours - perhaps pink for Strawberry flavour, green for Pandan, etc etc. 

After all, the colours were only limited to beige and brown, which could add up to a rather dull image if not for the toppings added. 

Overall, I enjoyed myself to the fullest and I can't wait to be back for more! Surprisingly, not mainly for the food but the FUN! Just you wait, I'll make sure that I create nicer pancake art! (:

Kith Cafe @ Park Mall

Woah. I have been gone away for a short break.. Because sadly
This time I have decided to take double concentrations - International Biz & Finance. I hope that I still can maintain my grades hahaha. Quite envious that my fellow friends will have so much more free time than me! And I will have to mug and mug.. But I guess all the results will be worthwhile at the end of the day. 

Despite having such busy schedules, I will be finding bits of time here and there to continue blogging in this little space of mine (: So thanks to those who have still been clicking into my blog! 

Anyway, just before my school semester started, I went out with my school clique to chill at some place called Kith Cafe located at Park Mall (Opposite Plaza Singapura).
I wouldn't really write a food review about this restaurant since I've only tasted truffle fries and my cup of coffee. 

I'll let the pictures do the talking!


The cakes look really delicious and I was tempted to try the Hazelnut flavour! 

Wow the truffle fries here are really good! Very crispy and piping hot. It's like super delicious fries with such savoury taste. Truffle oil really enhance the fries so much! I just couldn't stop eating it and we ordered 2 plates to share! 

And here's the Kith Cafe Menu:

A photo of us (:

To be honest, I feel that the price is a little expensive to start with, but the food really tasted decent and I have heard positive reviews about this cafe before. My friends praised the food that they have ordered as well. It's probably worth a try if you are not very particular about the price but I would prefer something more affordable. I would want to try Stranger's Reunion soon!

I can't wait to share with you guys about the DIY pancake restaurant that I went to last month! Stay tuned~~
