Lollipop cake – C’est La B HK

Hello Dearest Readers, it’s finally Hump day meaning there’s only two days until the weekend :) Work has been insanely busy for me lately so I’m definitely looking forward to relaxing this weekend! Anyhow, today I have a confession to make…and that is apart from being a sugar addict, I’m also a shopoholic! Yup I’m one of those crazy people who can’t go to the shops and leave without buying one or two things. And you know what’s worse…I’ve recently started shopping online, something I’ve purposefully avoided in the past! My first parcel arrived everything fit and looks great…so I’m worried I think this is a start of another addiction :P

C'est La B in Tsim Sha Tsui, HK

Let’s move back to my addiction for sweets, back in July I managed to catch up with my friend Mary and she suggested that we try out the new C’est La B in Tsim Sha Tsui. I’ve had their cakes before when they were stocked at a nearby cafe and was quite impressed so was even more excited about visiting their actual cafe. We arrived at around 5pm on a Thursday and was surprised to find it quite empty, I liked the slightly eccentric and quirky interior design ~

My eyes glued to the glass cake cabinet as soon as we walked in, all their cakes are intricate and pretty, I’m not sure if you can see but that black and white checked cake on the top right is so perfectly made! I also liked how they had a lot of little individual cakes which is great when you want to order and share a few more flavours.

Awesome cake stand!

And we did exactly that, Mary suggested that we get 3 cakes and asked for them to be placed on a cake stand because she knew it’ll look great for photos. I love how my friends are so thoughtful :D and how cool is this cake stand with the Owner’s (Bonnae Gokson) initial on the bottom. Now I want to know where they got this and want to get one with ‘D’!

Madame Butterfly $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

This is the ‘Madame Butterfly’ it has a sable base, followed by a chocolate sponge cake, pistachio and lastly an intensely red beetroot cake. I found the flavours for all the layers to be quite light and hard to distinguish from each other, however, the texture was moist and fluffy.

Paradise $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

Paradise $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

I wasn’t sure what the ‘Paradise’ cake was but Mary assured me that it’s good, turns out it was a Lavender Taro Chiffon Layers with a hint of Coconut Cream & Glazed Young Coconut and it was amazing! The taro flavour was pronounce in the sponge cake, but the taro buttercream was definitely my favourite. I knew Lianne would’ve loved this cake because we’re both fans of Taro!

Cheesecake with Queen Anne Cherries $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

Cheesecake with Queen Anne Cherries $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

The last on the stand was the ‘Vanilla Bean Cheese cake with Queen Anne Cherries’, I’m not too sure what Queen Anne Cherries are but I’m pretty sure they’re a type of variations and these ones were covered in a type of sugar syrup. Mr Bao liked the cheesecake the most, it had the same sable base as the first cake, the cheesecake filling was soft and full of vanilla bean flavour.

Lollipop Cake $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

Lollipop Cake $60HKD ($8.2AUD) +10% Service fee

We were already pretty satisfied but you know me… still wanted to try more. I really wanted to try the colourful rainbow cake, which is the ‘Lollipop Cakes’ it is actually a limited cake and currently only available at the Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s a Vanilla chiffon cake with rainbow tones and in the middles there’s a  cherries and jelly mousse, white chocolate crisps and served with colourful popcorn. The chiffon cake was made very well, and the filling wasn’t too rich, overall really impressed.

Green tea latte $55HKD ($7.5AUD) +10% Service Fee

Mary and I both got the Green Tea Latte, we found that it had too much ice and quite watery and definitely did not have enough matcha flavour which is a shame because it would’ve complimented the cakes so well.

Peach tea $65HK ($8.5AUD) +10% Service Charge

Peach tea $65HK ($8.5AUD) +10% Service Charge

I prefered Mr Bao’s Iced Peach Tea more as it had more flavour and less ice, we also liked the pieces of peach in the tea, it was definitely refreshing and welcomed as it was so hot and humid in Hong Kong.

C’est La B is located in Harbour City a super busy shopping centre on Canton Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, perfect place to place to chill and relax after you’ve maxed out your credit cards :P We enjoyed the cakes we had at C’est La B and will return to try their other cakes, I know that they’re releasing a cookbook soon, so I’m excited about getting that too so I can try making some of their cakes at home.

    That cafe looks like so much fun! Funnily enough, the plainest-looking thing looks the most appealing to me – the cheesecake! Looks so creamy and rich. :)

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet September 18, 2013 at 2:07 pm Reply

      Yup sometimes the simplest things are the best :) and that cheesecake was yum hehe

    That cake stand is awesome. You should’ve stolen it for food styling purposes. They wouldn’t have noticed, right? :p

  22. Peggy October 20, 2013 at 12:19 am Reply
