Build Your Own Sweet Treat At These 5 Dessert Places

If you can build your own chirashi-don, Korean lunchbox, or sushi, why not your own dessert? If there’s one thing this country needs, it’s more freedom — in the creation of our own desserts.

Even with this shortage, we have managed to dole out five dessert places where you can take the creation of everyone’s favourite part of a meal into your own hands, so do read on to find out where you can find these customizable desserts.

Binggo

Bingsu may be one of the best desserts in town to share with a group of friends, but things may turn awry when everyone just can’t agree on a flavour. The solution? — a personal, customizable, bingsu bowl.

At just $6.90 — a slash from the usual $16 most bingsu cost — you may choose an ice-cream flavour and two additional toppings, creating your own handy concoction. True to its name — a truncation of “bingsu on the go” — the elongated design of the bowl makes it easy for you to carry and enjoy it on the move.

All additional toppings are under a dollar, with an exception being the durian topping which costs $1.20.

Despite the uprising of ice-cream parlours with their hipster flavours and charcoal waffles, Cold Stone Creamery remains rock-solid on its two feet — and it may well be due to its innovation.

Well-loved for its theatrics and taste, Cold Stone is also popular for its mix-ins — the candy, chocolate, fruit, cake, and sauce toppings that will be folded into an ice-cream scoop of your choice. With what may be the largest selection of toppings in any ice-cream parlour, Cold Stone ensures that you are able to enjoy a creation unique to you.

Sizes available are ‘Like It’ (4 oz) at $6.00, ‘Love It’ (6 oz) at $8.50, and ‘Gotta Have It’ (8 oz) at $10.50. Do note that the prices stated are only limited to two mix-ins no matter the size, but you may add more at $1 each.

At $14.80, create an extremely Instagrammable piece of art. First, pick your bread — charcoal, matcha, or brioche. Next, the filling — salted egg, Nutella, or matcha. And finally, the ice-cream flavour — chocolate, matcha, or vanilla. What results is a beautiful, incredibly oozy piece of toast, ready to be featured on your Instagram feeds, and then devoured.
