Updated on 25 Aug 2014: Canele Patisserie is now closed.
I have been eating a lot of cakes recently. Hold on, please allow me to rephrase that: I eat a lot of cakes all the time, but recently, I have been having them way too often.
Canele Patisserie currently has three locations: Robertson Walk, Orchard Paragon and Shaw Centre. It has been a long time since my last visit, but it’s mainly because I wanted to check out the other patisseries in Singapore. Are you game for more cakes?
If someone ever tells you that it is wrong to eat cakes at night — THEY ARE LYING! I bet they are secretly having that slice of moist chocolate-y cake without you! Listen to the food blogger: life is short, and we should always eat whatever we’re craving for. Remove all the mirrors at home, get a bigger pair of jeans, or simply exercise more the next day — everyone should have their cake, and eat it. I can’t possibly imagine a world without cakes.
The Macha ($7) is one of my favorite at Canele Patisserie, besides the Le Royale. I’m no fan of Japanese Matcha, but Canele’s interpretation won me over with its smooth and delicate green tea mascarpone mousse. Right in the middle of the cake, there’s also the hidden chestnut cream, and together with the almond crumble; they were the perfect complement to the green tea mousse.
I never had Canele Patisserie’s St Marc ($8) before. There was a thin layer of dark chocolate cream sandwiched in between the vanilla creme Chantilly. I couldn’t quite describe it, but the cake was very pleasant and likable.
Peanut butter and chocolate are always a good combination, but I didn’t enjoy Canele’s Charlie Brown ($9). It was essentially a slice of cake with 64% dark chocolate cream, chocolate brownie salty peanut caramel, and peanut butter feuilletine. The sticky salty peanut caramel was a good contrast to the crunchy peanut butter feuilletine, but the whole cake was too heavy and overwhelming.
Canele Patisserie is definitely one of the best dessert places in Singapore. If you have a sweet tooth, you must try Canele’s Macarons – they are absolutely delicious! What is your favorite cake at Canele’s?
