Authentic Italian Pastries

For full review and pics, visit: www.dairycream.blogspot.com

If you happen to spot a white color mousse cake studded with dried fruits called "Cassata Siciliana" at any local patisserie, don't think much, just get it. It is such a traditional and peripheral cake that few pastry chefs in Singapore would ever think of making one. The rarity drove me to get a slice at Dolcetto by Basilico, despite being already full to the brims. 

This Italian pastry shop used to be my to-go place for takeaway pastries when it was still under the name of "Something to Go". The interior and menu have been revamped, but the signatures like Strawberry Torte, Praline Torte and Espresso Tiramisu still stay......

Italian Desserts and Breads Galore

I had always enjoyed the authentic Italian desserts in Basilico, so the opening of Dolcetto was good news to me since I can still get my hands on their desserts when patronizing Summer Palace in The Regent instead.
  The breads are of hits and misses, some like the chocolate roll (the chocolate chips inside are delicious) are really good while others are just so so only.  For the desserts, most are pretty good while the star is the Torte Nocciola.  What I like about it is that the overall, well rounded taste is very unique, unlike that of the usual cakes, and the raspberries, hazelnut sponge and the big dollop of cream on top complement each other excellently.  For the macarons, the shells are very well made though I find them to be a bit too sweet.  Vanilla and strawberry balsamic macarons are the ones that stand out for me, lavender one smells too much like perfume.   One more thing: a must buy when visiting this place is the Amedei Chocolate—one of the best chocolates in the world and it is not easy to find a store carrying them. I only know that Dolcetto, Chocolate and Gelato Shoppe sell these. In fact, I only like chocolate desserts made with chocolates of Amedei, Valhorna calibre. The Amedei milk chocolate I had gotten is incredibly smooth, warm in taste with strong hints of honey. Though no honey is added. Amazing, right? That is the beauty of premium cocoa.   Service is good and professional.   Look forward to go back for the Torte Nocciola and grab a bar of Amedei!

The sweets here are absolutely glorious, and taste as exquisite as they are gorgeous. They may be a lil' bit pricey, but they're at 20% off if you arrive after 8pm!

The offbeat deconstructed Espresso Tiramisu ($8) was a wonderful marriage of the heady and creamy. Instead of the liqueur-drenched sponge being at the bottom, it was atypically sandwiched between the mascarpone, and the ladyfingers fencing, instead of layering, the sumptuous creation.

If I had to choose, though, my vote would go to the Espresso and Chocolate Coffee Cake ($8), smooth coffee mousse encased in a nut-studded chocolate shell and crowned with orange-tinged buttercream piping. I loved the contrast of the crunchy exterior and the fluffy smooth creaminess of the mousse. An absolute must-order.
