At Creamfields, everything is visually over-the-top—in line with Marie Antoinette's taste, perhaps. In fact, the café's well-known amongst Korean celebrities who've been spotted here while picking up a cake fashionably decorated with popping colors and real blooming flowers. Every corner of the shop is decorated with rather exotic plants, both real and fake, along with colorful decor items and stationary such as candles, greeting cards and miniature plants.
Judging from the long list of celebrity clientele as well as the lavish looks of each item prepared in-house, one may guess that the owner/baker's résumé would be equally impressive. After a little conversation with her, however, what will deem impressive is the fact that she's been completely self-taught, with no previous experience before opening up Creamfields. The baker always "loved gardening," though—with that, she came to create these floral cakes in her own style.
Creamfields specializes in customized cakes. But even without ordering any in advance, you can still enjoy a lot here: cake by the slice, cupcakes and a large menu of fun drinks, all pumped up with color. Take, for example, Monster Latte, a coffee drink topped with a generous amount of whip cream and pastel-colored meringues which are the highlight: they've got a light crunch, with soft cotton-textured and subtle yet addictive sweetness. The Early Grey cupcake was a little dry and even had an aftertaste of dough, but its pleasant floral scents made up for it. Whether with a whole cake for a party or a few cupcakes for a takeout, Creamfields will offer a pleasantly sweet note for your occasion.
