Ciel Patisserie, Hougang Ave 1

Now with 2 tots, we hardly get out. Ok, a large part of it has to do with the fact that we are homebodies and too lazy to hunt down new stuff. Fortunately, we have good friends who bring the world to us. The world being lovely desserts from Ciel Patisserie that Vernon and Yiling brought over for lunch.

I don't want to sound like their PR machine but props to local girl Chara Lim for picking up some serious skills at Le Cordon Bleu and bringing a slice of froufrouness to the suburbans. The pastries at Ciel Patisserie are commendable!

I mean, look at the Bombe. Like seriously, look at it - you can see your reflection in the Bombe! A dessert that offers you a chance to check yourself out? What more can you ask for in this day and age of the selfie?

Sarcasm aside, the Bombe was an intensely dark chocolate treat studded with a couple of tangy blueberries.

The tarts are short and buttery. If you feel breaking out of your comfort zone, go for the Ginger Creme Brûlée; otherwise the Chocolate Caramel would be pretty pleasing.

The Oreo Cheesecake is smooth but dense. I love cheesecakes and I love them on the dense side so no problem polishing it off.

The Fuji wasn't a crowd favourite, I will admit. Even if you are a matcha freak, approach with caution. I liked the bittersweetness of the matcha but overall this was a little too funky for me.

The Strawberry Shortcake was a doll with its couldn't-be-lighter whipped cream and sponge. The rose pipping is just beautiful too.
