Flor Patisserie @ Duxton Hill
This year for my mother's birthday I was tasked to buy the birthday cake hence I tweeted on Twitter for recommendation. Thanks to Twitter follower @callmecupcakes, she recommended me Flor Patisserie at Duxton Hill. I made my way down to Flor Patisserie and was lucky to get a whole cake as I did not make any pre-order.
Flor Patisserie is opened by Chef Yamashita. It is a Japanese styled patisserie serving authentic Japanese inspired French pastry. Chef Yamashita brings with him over 20 years of baking techniques to Singapore and spent a year and a half tailoring his signature cakes to suit the climate and local palate.
I got the Berry Berries (17x12 for $38.85) which is a soft sponge that is made traditionally without baking powder nor any chemical raising agent. It is filled with fresh strawberries and luscious cream topped with summer berries and fresh fruits.
I dislike cakes that are dry, sweet and that comes with too much cream. The Berry Berries cake was totally the opposite. The flavours were well harmonized. The cake was very soft and moist. The price is also very reasonable.
As the pastries at Flor Patisserie is made entirely of natural and fresh ingredients, they do not keep well. Hence it is best to be consumed on the day itself. Flor Patisserie firmly believes in using on the best ingredients to create beautiful tasting pastries.
