The Sweet Spot Patisserie Take 2

The first time I went was a while ago, but it's nice to come back and see those cakes still for sale and roughly the same price.

We got drawn by the macaron ice cream sandwiches in their display fridge, and decided to get them as a substitute for a friend's birthday cake.
Baklava ice cream, salted caramel, cookies and cream, Tim Tam, Orange and Chocolate (Jaffa), Mint-~$6.50 each (I think)

Generally they were pretty nice. The macaron was quite hard to cut into and chewy, but I guess it's not fresh and it has been in the freezer. Ice cream not too sweet when you share it, but after a while it becomes quite sweet since the macaron has more sugar than actual flavouring. The Baklava one had some pastry at the bottom, I guess to resemble the original dessert.

One of the places I didn't have time to go to in my NYC trip last year was having an infamous macaron ice cream sandwich. Until then, two of my dessert loves have yet to be perfected together.

Past birthday cakes for friends:

CaprioskaShort bread biscuit base with layers of lemon-lime mousse, lychee and vanilla sponge
Medium cake-$48
Love the spray finish (soz for over exposed photo), inside had mousse and sponge, but after a while the mousse does become really sweet. The lemon-lime flavour wasn't very prominent.. You'll find frozen bit of lychee inside. The base is super duper hard, even after over an hour out of the fridge and in outdoors temperature. Our plastic spoons were no match for the base. It wasn't too overly salty, but a good amount of salt which would've helped the sweet mousse if we good only cut into it...Macarons were pretty bad, rock hard and super crunchy, opposite of what it's supposed to be. I guess they aren't fresh and stored for a long time in the fridge...

TiramisuLayers of vanilla sponge brushed with coffee, filled with chocolate cream and topped with coffee mascarpone and cocoa

Can't go wrong with tiramisu :)

  1. You're right - I don't think I've ever had a bad tiramisu flavoured dessert :)

    I think a lot of people shy from Baklava because the original pastry is so sweet but I think it would work well in an ice cream!
