Mad About Sucre - Wedding Cake

If ever I’m getting married, I’m getting myself a bespoke wedding cake from Mad About Sucre.

Founded by siblings Eric and Lena Chan—brother Eric manages the marketing while demure sister Lena does the baking—newly opened patisserie Mad About Sucre (just opposite Dorsett Singapore Hotel) weds time-honoured French confectionary techniques with a passionate flair for gloriously intricate, European-style cake designs and some thoughtful flavour pairings.

Expect smokey caramel hints in the light Moulin Rouge ($10.80).

Having honed her skills at Le Cordon Bleu before working as head decorator at top wedding cake specialist Sugarplum Cake Shop in Paris, Lena believes in not using any premixes, artificial flavouring or stabilisers. Instead, her handcrafted cakes and confections is made from organic, unbleached flour and raw sugar, as well as natural colouring from fruit puree—which explains the muted colour palatte.

However, Mad About Sucre’s sophisticated treats are anything but subdued.

Go for the Eros ($11.50) that teams a bittersweet blend of 40% and 60% chocolate from Ghana and Mexico with punchy, rich tart notes from the sour cherry jelly and raspberry coulis, or—my personal favourite—the deep, dark and intense San Domingue ($12.80).

The beguiling creation looks like a suave gentleman on the outside—what with the dark chocolate coat and a crunchy Brittany base—but one bite reveals the ‘bad boy’ shot of rum (within the dainty chocolate box ‘crown’) that accentuates its caramelized banana center.

Mad About Sucre - Teo Hong Road - Coco Citron

For those who prefer something lighter, also noteworthy is the Coco Citron ($9.80), a mellifluous combination of coconut mousse and a smooth lemon curd, finished with sprinklings of delicate crystal drops made from melted sugar.

Passionne ($10.80), a light cheese cake with bright hints of passionfruit, teamed with coco nip crunch.

What started out as just something fun for Jasper has developed into a passion for food over the years. Always having weird urges to take pictures of other diners’ food, he is used to being forcefully restrained by dining companions, but has yet to have security called on him. Jasper is open to all sorts of cuisines and dishes, and is always on the lookout for a good meal or deal. To him, an ideal restaurant is one that combines good food, friendly service and a warm ambience. "Food is all about the dining experience."
