I know Ap Lei Chau is a bit far but maybe these photos will entice you to come pay us a visit! Our beautifully designed patisserie (by Joyce Wang of Mica Design) features first a stunning dark wood cupcake counter where we sell our hundreds upon hundreds of our 15 different flavored cupcakes. The main cake counter is where we display all our French cakes and pastries. From our sift chocolate cake to vanilla mille feuille to our maple and mascarpone cheesecake! The top is lined with jars of our homemade marshmallows, cookies, quiches and lemon tart!

Haute couture, cars, babies and soccer ball parties

We've been so busy in the kitchen sending out all sorts of afternoon tea and birthday cakes for our corporate clients I haven't had a chance to blog some of our fun customized cakes. Our white quilted chanel bag was so popular we just made another pink version (There'll be another version coming on later today with a louboutin stiletto to match! ). For this pink chanel bag we made our classic dark chocolate cake with valrhona 70% guanaja buttercream.

We also made this smashing 3d lightning mcqueen chocolate cake. All details including windshield wipers, wheels and lightning mcqueen's 95 number are all made of edible fondant decorations and all crafted by hand! The inside of lightning mcqueen is again our delicious dark chocolate cake with valrhona 70% guanaja buttercream.

For our customized cupcakes this week we made some customized soccer ball, alphabet and our signature baby shower decorations for a bunch of special events!
