However, since cakes are one of the prettiest things in life, should not they be very suited to be featured as well? It's a pity I could not write about the previous cakes I had here, but well, its never too late to talk about their 新商品.
Hopefully as more people read about this, they will support this shop as such good cakes are rare in Singapore even though there are many emerging new cake shops.
|Limited Edition : Strawberry Pie|
Crispy puff pastry base, topped with custard cream and strawberries.
there is actually fresh nama cream inside too
This Limited Edition Strawberry Pie drew my attention because of the puff pastry base. Well, this is an extremely well paired dessert. The custard-fresh cream-sponge cake combo is one of the common features of Flor cakes. Now, they've added another layer and it does not spoil the cake. Somehow, it seems like a twist of their signature Strawberry Napolean, but deconstructed and created in another fashion.
|Eating pies like this or Millefeuille can get messy at times!|
but you will be happy to find yourself in such a mess=D
Was happy that the puff pastry did not turn soggy at all, after having kept them for a day in the fridge. The cream was light and the strawberries were sweet as expected. As compared to Pave's puff pastry, this puff pastry had a lighter shade of brown colour, is less flaky and harder to break apart with a fork.
|Signature cake: Napoleon |
The traditional Napoleon, made with Chef's signature puff pastry, the strawberry version.
(this is their best seller, not a new item)
Now, can you understand why I say it resembles their limited edition strawberry pie? But this one has a thinner layer of puff pastry. More towards a classic French Millefeuille. I prefer this to a typical strawberry shortcake as it is much more interesting with its multiple textures.
I shared this with C 姨姨, Y 姨姨 and Pretty Mum as I had tried them before. Anyway, yummy food is meant to be shared, right?
Without having to ask her about this, I can already imagine that she must have enjoyed it a lot. Anyone who likes strawberry shortcake or millefeuille should not give this a miss. Afterall, the price is very value for money=)
