Christmas Cake - Mad About SucreChristmas Cake from Mad About Sucre – aged brandy, apricot, cranberries, currant, citrus peels, vanilla light rum sauce, and rum chantilly cream. Essentially the gustatory equivalent of seeing your familiar friend of many years in (ahem) naughty and slightly inappropriate Santa attire for the first time. The alcoholic fumes diffuse efficiently in your mouth upon first bite, with the fruity crunch and roasty nuts making you feel all festive and want to curl up like a kitten by the fireplace. 4.1/5

Shawn began documenting his food experiences since he started reading Law at the National University of Singapore. Initially he turned to food for solace from the rigours of university life, and food eventually became his safe haven away from the horrors of legal practice. However, it dawned on him one day that he has become sufficiently enlightened about the magic of discovering new and good food. Thus, he joined Burpple, a company with which his goals coincided - to help people decide what to eat. Secret Life of Fatbacks is an extension of Shawn's Instagram account (@Larvitar). For intellectual property reasons, he is unable to name the website anything related to the titular Pokémon character. Feel free to ask him in person what "Fatbacks" refers to. Shawn is not a professional food critic, food blogger or food photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. He enjoys combining them in his writing, and hopes to put a smile on some faces along the way.
