Signature-tastic is their signature cake, must eat!  Cake consists of two layers dacquoise, rose-scented cream, watermelon, strawberries, and dried rose petals.  The cake is very refreshing with lots of strawberries and  the big piece of watermelon.  However, if I compared it to the original Strawberry Watermelon Cake I had in Black Star Pastry in Sydney, this is slightly disappointing.  Here is the photo of the cake I had in Sydney (different shop by the way)

Cake from Black Star Pastry in Sydney

As you can see, the two cakes are nearly identical.  However, the cake from Black Star Pastry in Sydney looks more delicate and perfect.  Every layer is the same, whereas the one from Lifetastic, HK every layers are not the same.  First of all, the watermelon layer is too thick, I cannot ever spoon every layers up at once.  The strawberries from Black Star Pastry in Sydney are small pieces spread on top of the cream with lots of dried roses, the strawberries from Lifetastic are big chunks that makes a layer.
The cake from Lifetastic in HK is sweeter and I cannot taste the pistacio in the cream.  There is a hint of pistacio and very intense taste of rose in the cream from Black Star Pastry in Sydney.
Both are really good cakes, still very refreshing and ‘healthier’

Came in a Tiffany blue teapot and cup, extra cute and pretty for me.  However it was slightly pricier, even more than a cup of coffee.  The tea consist of Green tea, Cornflowers, Rose Petals and Marigold flowers.  It was a really good tea, very refreshing yet revitalizing.

Verdict

Signature-tastic – 9/10
Green Tea Latte – 9/10
Kimino – 9/10

  I really do like their cake, even if it is slightly different from the Strawberry watermelon rose Cake from Black Star Pastry in Sydney.  It is a great cafe to catch up or have a big fat brunch.  Customer service is great here, clean and bright little cafe right outside MTR station.
