I visited Singapore for apartment hunting a couple of months ago in preparation for the big move. We had some time to spare so we decided to visit Antoinette on Penhas Road for some pastries.
Antoinette came highly recommended by my boss, who is a pastry chef, so naturally I had quite a high expectation for this place and their cakes!
This cake had layers of dark chocolate mousse, caramel bavarois, orange marmalade, hazelnut feulletine and chocolate genoise. Overall this was a great petit gateaux with a great chocolate flavour. The mousse was very smooth, rich and decadent. The hazelnut feulletine added a pleasant crunch and texture. However I would have preferred a stronger orange flavour given the name but I could hardly taste the marmalade.
This petit gateaux consisted of Earl grey milk chocolate mousse, chocolate biscuit, raspberry coulis, dark chocolate earl grey cremeux, earl grey crumble. This was so good and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The subtle earl grey flavour complemented the chocolate mousse and the raspberry coulis very well, it was match made in heaven. The raspberry coulis was encased in the half sphere bubble which was very interesting and exciting for me to poke! :p
This place has fast become one of my favourite patisseries in Singapore (having been to a few now). I will definitely return to have Antoinette again, and also to try their other cakes.
