Strawberry Cognac

"Mascarpone mousse sandwiched between layers of sponge doused in strawberry puree and cognac"

Strawberry Cognac

My pre-birthday cake bought by Yuan. I was hinting him to avoid chocolate cakes and The Patissier is a good choice for unique non-chocolate cakes.

I was hoping for Affection, a combination of rose jelly, vanilla sponge and lychee chiboust but according to Yuan, The Patissier has downsized their cake menu due to the Christmas season so some of the flavours were not available for ordering.

In terms of design, I have to admit that The Patissier adopts unique shapes and are brightly coloured (for non-chocolate flavours) and this is no exception.

Taste-wise, this is an alternative to tiramisu given its use of cognac and mascarpone cheese. The overall combination is tangy, refreshing and light. No doubt, recommended in our opinion if you don't mind it being pricey ($40+ for 500gm, $76+ for 1kg).

Thank you, Elaine.

Hope you have a joyous Christmas celebration.

Haha and you had their Strawberry Sensation Cake this year... I am debating to be their member and gonna convince Yuan to order more of their cakes.

I prefer their non-chocolate cakes more since the chocolate cakes in hotels are more convenient and more suited to my liking.
