All The Batter, a cafe known for its avocado focused menu, is tweaking its bestselling Avocado Gula Melaka cake for Mother’s Day. Specially for the occasion, buyers can choose to add an edible flower bouquet on top of the cake and a Mother’s Day message.
The cake retails at S$55 and is made with palm sugar and fresh avocados. It also uses the fruit instead of butter for the batter. A pretty good cake for the health-conscious.
