Say Awww

Not everything was dull and grey about the COVID-19 lockdown, especially not when Say Aww, a colourful home bakery, is concerned! Established by two sisters who baked everyday whilst staying home, Say Aww is a humble bakery boasting delectable treats that’re bound to satisfy any self-proclaimed sweet tooth.

The petite box starts with the lemon meringue tartlet, comprising a swirl of lightly toasted meringue perched atop a small pastry cup. Albeit melting fast when bitten into, the tart has a delightfully tangy flavour with mildly sour notes. I like that it’s not too sweet, with the denser pastry base offering a good contrast with the cotton-y meringue. 

earl grey shortbread cookies

The earl grey shortbread cookies come in a trio, with a nice crumbly texture. However, the cookies are a little too thin for my liking, with much of the earl grey flavour present. I found this to be rather disappointing, as the cookies are regrettably without their supposed core essence. 

charred oreo cheesecake

The charred oreo cheesecake, on the other hand, is intriguingly addictive, offering a great balance of salty and sweet. It’s rich and decadent, with a firm base that’s crumbly at the edges. The oreo crumbs at the top help to elevate the texture, covering a substantial and creamy cheese layer.

The charred aspect of it, however, isn’t to my liking. Rather than enhancing the overall dessert, I feel that the burnt taste unfortunately overpowers the other flavours.

scrumptious brownie

Rounding off the box is the scrumptious brownie, which isn’t too sweet or cloying. It’s a delight to bite into the crackling exterior, only to discover a moist and almost fluffy interior. To put it colloquially, devouring the whole thing didn’t make me feel jelak in the least! However, the above two are both crudely cut, undermining the finesse that this petite box would otherwise have.
