Back in July, a group of 30 ieat kakis was involved in a Buzzing Cashier episode featuring the Carrot Cake stall from Elias Mall. I was one of the judges at the event and I wanted to find out how the stallowners are doing 2 months after their episode was aired.
I am glad to report that they are still doing quite well and the show had given their stall a new lease of life. They are still steaming their own carrot cake and have made the effort of listening to feedback from their customers in order to keep on improving their dish.
The Carrot Cake I had that day was actually better than the version they cooked on the day of the filming. Over the last two months the lady owner had honed her frying skills, so now the Carrot Cake is nice and crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and quite flavourful. It is certainly one of the better Carrot Cakes around and my feedback to them was that it could be even better if they could fry extra chye poh to top the carrot cake at the end. 4.25/5
Anyway, they are now earning more during the weekday then they used to during the weekends which is testament to the impact that the TV program had on the lives of this family!
So if you are wondering what to do this weekend, maybe you could head down to Elias Mall to try the carrot cake which is situated at the Food Court downstairs. Then head to the air-con food court upstairs to buy the Japanese Cha Shu Kong Bak Pau and Godzilla Da Pau for a picnic at Pasir Ris Park where there is a nice big playground for the kids to run around!
Have a great weekend ahead!
