Mad About Sucre – Made from Scratch, Made with Style
Because all my friends have been raving about Mad About Sucre, I paid a visit last Saturday. Opened by by siblings Eric and Lena Chan, Eric does marketing while Lena takes care of the kitchen. Graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, Lena used to work in Sugarplum Cake Shop – a stunning wedding cake shop in Paris. Don’t play play ok!
Using French techniques in her cakes, Lena does not use any flavouring or stabilisers in her products. All her sweets is made from organic flour, raw sugar and natural colouring from fruit puree. This is great news for me because I get nauseous when artificial flavourings are added. That’s why I don’t usually eat cakes in restaurants.
I got to try a few other sweet treats. From the lightest in flavours, the Moulin Rouge ($10.80) features lightly charred caramel mousse, walnut parfait, short sweet bread, and almond crunch. I thought charred caramel would taste too sweet or too bitter. But none of that happened. The mousse was light, moderately sweet and when you bite the almond crunch with charred caramel, it is a perfect marriage.
Next, I picked the Passionne ($10.80) – a light cheese cake with hints of passionfruit and coco nip crunch. The mild acidity of passionfruit makes this cheese cake easy to eat. They have a range of house-blended teas to pair with the sweets. For Passionne, we paired it with a mango tea. I am a fan of coconut mousse and lemon curd. However, I went late in the afternoon and their Coco Citron was sold out.
For something rich, San Domingue ($12.80) is the right choice. First, put the rum jewel box into your mouth. When it starts to melt, put a slice of cake into you mouth. Let the chocolate and rum party together. With a caramelised plantain in the middle, the mousse is made from 70% single origin chocolate from Saint Dominique. It has a very pronounced cocoa flavor and a long finish. This is paired with lotus tea.
I am impressed. Mad About Sucre has definitely brought a fresh air to the patisserie scene. Each slice of cake is artistically crafted in small batches that are made the old-fashioned way, from scratch and by hand. The wedding cakes done by Lena are very elegant and romantic. Love it!
