Hotel Clover's "The Clover Christmas Bake Fest"

Christmas ain't a perfect Christmas without some delicious cookies and cakes to hype up the festive season. I was kindly invited by Sherrill to Hotel Clover's "The Clover Christmas Bake Fest" to savour some delicious treats baked by homemade bakers.

As a baking enthusiast, I jumped at the opportunity to meet different bakers and also appreciate their bakes. (I wouldn't say no to desserts!) Now I can look at more pretty baking photos! (:

The Clover Christmas Bake Fest will feature the finest assortment of creations from popular home bakers of different backgrounds and specialities. Read on to know where to buy these signature pastries for your family, friends or even for yourself!

Signature Creations:
  • Christmas Velvet Cake - Ultra-moist red and dark green velvet sponge cake layers smothered in nanatang's signature cream cheese
  • Ondeh Ondeh cupcakes - Pandan cakes filled with gula melaka, topped with cream cheese and shredded coconut

The Christmas tree design is really applicable to the festive season, so pretty! And the cream cheese is really velvety soft and smooth. Yum!

Signature Creations:
  • Earl Grey Caramel spiced Cupcakes
  • Rose Chocolate Macarons
  • Mussel quiche tarts
Earl Grey flavours are one of my top favourite! If you are not keen on sweet treats, you can check out her savoury quiche tarts.

Xiangyun, owner of Tweedlebakes, creates individualised bakes based on customer’s request and resulting in “the unexpected”. Her bespoke creations are tailored to customers’ preferences and are masterpieces formed from her own inspiration and tweaking of recipes.

Signature Creations:
  •  Cookie Cup Shots - Thick, buttery crust of cookies, decadent dark chocolate ganache and served with either milk or Bailey's

Reminds me of mini cute volcanoes! In fact, the cookie cups look quite artistic! And surprisingly the milk tastes much better in this cookie cup. Yum! How about Bailey's for you?

Madame Patisserie

Located at Boat Quay, Madame Patisserie is a quaint high-tea restaurant that serves exquisite pastries and beverages. With a reputation for serving timeless pastries in an elegant setting, it offers an extensive range of products ranging from in-house baked bread, rich chocolate cake and delectable desserts.

Signature Creations:
  • Christmas chocolate and nuts stollen
  • Macarons in an array of colours and enticing colours
  • Chocolate praline
  • Gingerbread cookies

If you are interested in ordering log cakes, you might want to try their Rainbow cake which has a different taste for EVERY colour. And the macarons look super colourful like the rainbow! Each colour with a different fruity taste!

Chantilly Patisserie

After growing up with an intrigue for desserts featured on cooking shows and recipe books, Joyce of Chantilly Patisserie decided to leave her full time job to be trained in French baking at Ecole Gastronomique Bellouet Counsei. With her partner, Jeffrey, the duo believe in only using the freshest of ingredients and aim to deliver honest and delightful treats to customers.

Signature Creations:

The lemon meringue tarts look so enticing, it's like luring me to have a bite! Do check out their website for more cakes and pastries choices. Their cakes look really professional and lovely too!

  • Salted Eggyolk Cupcakes 

My favourite would be the Keylime Yuzu - so light and refreshing. I'm not a fan of spices and exotic flavors, but if you are, you can try out her Cinnamon Pecan and Salted Eggyolk Cupcakes which is part of the featured creations!

Simply Manis

The Pumpkin Crumble Tart (Baked, cubed and half of it pureed) that I had was surprisingly delicious as I usually do not fancy such flavors. The crunch was perfect!
