Tien-Tien from Centre Ps

I was browsing through Centre Ps's Les Entremets and my attention was immediately given to Tien-Tien. This delicate piece, carefully crafted and decorated by hand creation is so eye-catching...

As described on the web, this is basically Fresh Raspberry, Perfumed Lychee Cream and Rose Petal Mille Feuille. Sounds like a beautiful gift for a girl...

Each of these costs $9 nett and requires ordering at least 2 days in advance....


Fen's comments

I really like this dessert. It is an alternative to the conventional Japanese Shortcake. Instead of strawberries, this is lined with whole raspberries and the best part is that, they are not sour...

The chantilly cream is light and is flavoured with Lychee, thus making it very refreshing. The amount of cream is little as the centre portion is a light sponge cake. At the bottom of Tien-Tien is a piece of pastry which is similar to a crunchy shortbread. This porous and crispy biscuit has a very nice vanilla and lychee fragrance. Of course they are pieces of white chocolate interlocking in between.

I would termed this as a must-try in my little database of cakes if you are a fan of strawberry shortcake. Particularly after a heavy dinner, this is refreshing and light. Something I won't hesitate to finish all on my own. Do take note that this is not available off the shelf and thus do place your order 2 days in advance.

Just found a link with lovely pictures of cakes: Mother day cakes & Collection of Chocolate and Strawberry cakes from Jaime-La-Nourriture's blog

Yuan's comments

The concept of this dessert is like the Ispahan. The difference is that the top layer is white chocolate with vanila sponge and the bottom is pastry similar to shortbread. I would say that this is not an easy dessert to eat, you can't really use a fork as the top and bottom layers are rather tough. To bite the whole thing may be a quite a mouthful. Although I liked their lychee buttercream but i guess i just didn't like the pastry at the base.

looks good, but this centre ps shop, i never heard about it before, its a dessert shop? near where? i can't really tell the size of the cake as well, is it big? what other stuff they sell there?

It is a Patisserie outlet that sells macarons, cakes, pastries and cupcakes.

You will see the photo of the shop in my previous entry, just click on Centre Ps under "Search by Cake Boutiques"

It is a small shop near Tiong Bahru Market and there are limited stuff sold on the shelf. Thus, it is better to call in to check whether they have it or order it from them. Tien-Tien is small, about palm size.

As for other stuff sold there, you can refer to their online menu. Pretty comprehensive.

By the way, Centre Ps is the place where Zoe Tay was learning how to bake Cupcakes in the TCS drama, La Femme (绝对佳人).
