Here’s a fact: Everybody loves dessert. I definitely do, and I’m sure you do too. So what better way to celebrate everyone’s passion for dessert by taking a trip to Wicked, located at Shangri-La Mall’s East Wing?
Wicked, owned by Cravings, promises to truly satisfy your sweet tooth with their arsenal of sinfully good desserts, ranging from sweet pies, cakes, brownies, and cupcakes. They even have a fondue! And bacon! And if dessert isn’t really your thing, then not to worry – They have some pasta dishes, savory pies, and sandwiches in store.

Warm Salted Caramel Pecan Tart, laden with whole pecans, honey, butter, and topped with a small scoop of cold vanilla ice cream. Yummm!!!
Reese Peanut Butter cupcake – Creamy Reese peanut butter cake topped with frosting and jelly. The peanut butter frosting was fantastic, but the cupcake base crumbled too easily. Barely tasted any jelly.
Mac and Cheese, which was delicious and offsets the sweetness of all these pastries that we ate.
Sticky Buns – Melt-in-your-mouth buttery and soft dough, with gooey caramel pecan topping. Best served warm. It tasted similar to cinnamon rolls. I thought the taste was okay, but my mom found it too sweet.
My drink was the Aphriki Masala, a type of chai tea latte that had a nice balance in flavor – Not too strong, and not too mild either. Very fragrant too.
My mom had the Dallah Earl Gray tea, served in this really cool pot which only pours the tea if you place it on top of the mug.
Oh, and one of the waitresses gave us a sample of their Mallow and Graham Chocolate Bark… I guess she must’ve sensed that I was a blogger because I kept taking pictures of their food, hehe. The bark was delectable too – As the name suggests, it had giant pieces of marshmallows, and bits of graham crackers mixed together, all smothered in rich milk chocolate.
It may not be the most filling of meals, but I still enjoyed it – Some of their dishes are a bit overpriced though (like their cakes), but I’m sure it’s totally worth it. It also gave me a bit of a sugar buzz in the end, hehe. In short, Wicked definitely managed to quench my thirst for decadent dessert! ^^
