Note: Sweets Garibaldi is no longer in operations.
Let’s be honest, the now-defunct haute Italian confectionery DeSte was a flop. Whilst I admired its concept of extravagant, one-of-a-kind creations; the market just wasn’t ready for it. The price point was too high, and few would splurge so much on fanciful cakes.
Garibaldi Group replaced it with Sweets Garibaldi at Mandarin Gallery, which is in a totally different league from DeSte. With prices starting from $4.50 for a slice to $28 for a whole cake, it is evident that the newly launched dessert boutique is after the mass-market.
