Happy National Day folks! Well, not quite, but heck, I don’t see why we cannot celebrate our great nation’s independence for a whole month. A believe, that I may point out, seems to coincide with that of Marina Bay Sands’ as well. This August, enjoy special promotions and exclusive offers on selected dining outlets in MBS, as well as ongoing exhibitions at the ArtScience Museum.
National Day White Chocolate Peach Cake
Everyone’s favourite spot for sweets at MBS, SweetSpot (pun completely intended) has created a delectuable White Peach cake to help you celebrate our nation with flags raised high and mighty. Not kidding, this cake is modelled after the Singapore National Flag. A delicious almond sponge cake with peach jelly and mousse, the decorations in this cake have been carefully sculpted to mimic the iconic crescent and five stars on our flag. If the cake is not your thing (though I cannot imagine why), try their DragonFruit Strawberry Banana Smoothie ($9) – sounds like a filling and healthy way to fill up the dessert stomach.
White Peach Cake is available for a limited time only at SweetSpot MBS, for the month of August. Each slice is $9, while $58 will get you a 1Kg Cake.
