I have bought a Strawberry Shortcake for a friend’s birthday. It comes with juicy strawberries and there are more strawberries inside the soft sponge cake. Do not be afraid of the thick looking cream, it is there to scare those who are afraid of getting fat. The wonderful blend of vanilla sponge cake, fresh strawberries and cream brings you into paradise. You would want to ask for more after you are done with your own share. This place also sells other types of cakes, worth the calories, you can try their macaroons too.
Having read much positive reviewes on the strawberry shortcake I was curious enough to want to try it, but it turned out quite disappointing actually, too "spongy" for my liking. The Napolean, which has less sponge and more puff pastry to it, is much better!
The Guanaja is just like the hazelnut-praline cakes, its difficult to go wrong with this cake and it's always a safe choice. The mango and mocha cake meanwhile were quite uninspiring, at least in my humble opinion.

I was hesistating between mango cake and mont blanc. Mango cake is their popular cake but mont blanc has a special jap flavour. Counter girl recommended the mont blanc as it is quite special.
1/2 JAP chestnut on top of the mont blanc. The cream is not too sweet and here's two layers of vanilla sponge which is quite soft. I like this. However, i still frm the Mont blanc frm Centre-ps
Friends birthday approaching, due to many commitments unable to choose a cake for himself. Got me to help him in the favour. Deciding between Rive Gauche and Pattisier, finally decided on Rive Gauche. Counter girl was nice, upon seeing that i was thinking about which cake to get and hesitating cause of the price, gave me 20% off voucher which by right is only give when you have purchase a whole cake. Anyway bought 2 30cm by 30cm Guanaja, apparently their signature cake, though from what i've heard their strawberry shortcake is the more popular one. The cake was good, good for chocolate lover with a crispy base. The chocolate cream is just right and does not make people feel nausea even after eating too much. Great place for cakes, will be trying the strawberry shortcake next time round.
