This is an invited session
In the past, creating your own cake literally meant buying the ingredients, mixing them and baking one from scratch. As much as we loved to have personalised cakes, the thought of going through the tedious process stopped most of us, not even mentioning the expensive cost of baking oven and horrors of a failed lump of dough that was meant for a special someone.
And this, is where Patite Patisserie comes in!
From the team behind The Patissier, the concept of Patite Patisserie is to provide fuss-free personalised cakes in the comfort of your own home. While DIY cakes is not exactly a new idea around, what sets them apart is that their range of frozen mousse cakes promised premier ingredients and fresh taste right out of the box. To celebrate its launch, a bloggers' preview was held last Saturday at Hotel Re!
Chocolate Dream, Strawberry Delight, Mango Madness
Available in three flavours, the cakes came topless and was entirely up to you to decorate. The chocolate one had a thicker rich layer on top as oppose to the mousse cream in between, strawberry was refreshing with a tinge of sourness but my personal favourite would go to the mango, as I liked how it was natural tasting unlike most that would hit you in the face as being artificially sweetened.
Halfway through the event, the organisers demonstrated how really easy it was for anybody to come up with good-looking cakes. Layers of waffle biscuits, some fruits here and there, and a sprinkle of rainbow rice..
Voila! Done within 5 minutes! And to prove their point that anybody can do it, we were given hands-on opportunities to play with an entire cake each! Presenting to you:

Guess whose I-like-to-have-alot-of-strawberries-and-chocolate-rice-and-lets-add-an-open-oreo-too creation?
At the usual price of $25 per cake (Optional decoration kit at $13.80), I thought that it was slightly pricey as you would definitely spend additional amount on toppings, which pushed your overall costs even higher. Also, I have to say that I'm not a fan of mousse cakes as they are usually too light for my liking, so I might not appreciate how good these were as opposed to other mousse cakes.
Then again, its only my personal preference and Patite Patisserie might just hit the right spot for mousse cake lovers who are willing to spend a little more for some creativity funtime and unique presentation! How will your cake look like?
