“Eating with Violet Oon”

Mrs Violet Kwan, whose light-as-air chocolate chiffon cake with the gelatine-like chocolate topping has won her many fans and spawned many imitations throughout the kitchens of Singapore.

​Other cake shops have also tried to copy her formula but to gourmets there’s nothing like the real thing – and it’s found in Mrs Violet Kwan’s Lana Cake Shop at 36 Greenwood Avenue in the private housing estate of Hillcrest.
