Macarons & Cakes @ Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie, Paragon, Singapore

Sweets for my sweet...
Macarons from Canelé

On the way to Wild Honey for brunch, we passed by Canelé at Shaw House and saw the macarons on display - made a mental note that we so had to go there before going back to KL. Was stuffed to the brim after brunch, but hey there's always room for desserts! ;)

We ended up at the Canelé outlet in Paragon Shopping Centre (they have 4 other outlets elsewhere) and after some deliberating, I chose 6 different macaron flavours to try as well as the strawberry shortcake.  


Canelé  is actually part of the Les Amis Group and the owner of Antoinette used to be the executive pastry chef here. 



We went for the rose (veltvety white chocolate perfumed with rose extract), fleur de sel caramel (salted caramel), feuilletine (milk chocolate cream with hazelnut praline), coco banana (sweet coconut and luscious banana and passionfruit puree), mango chocolate blanc (ripe honeyed mangoes with white chocolate cream) and macaron d'amour raspberry elderflower - all signature macarons except for the last. All the macarons were perfectly formed except for one, which had a teeny bit of cracked feet. But that's okay.

Texturewise, they were all good and had ample amount of filling, very creamy - I like. Flavourwise, I would say all the flavours were very good, distinctive of the said flavours unlike some other places where the macarons just taste like sugar and nothing else. It's hard to choose a favorite because I liked them all but the feuilletine and rose left a lasting impression.

 Love them all

Thick fillings - I like!



Oh and the strawberry shortcake is awesome, lusciously delicious - fresh strawberries layered with creme Chantilly, Japanese shortcake laced with kirsch. Undoubtedly one of the best strawberry shortcakes we've eaten, it was hard to place the fork down as we kept wanting more.
