The sister company to ice-cream shoppe @denzygelato, @shiopatisserie focuses on freshly baked tarts that makes use of only premium ingredients. Yes, premium y'all.

These impeccable tarts are literally baked and assembled a few hours prior to collection to ensure its optimum freshness.

Included in the box are:
◾Cheese Brûlée
Lemon sponge, cream cheese, mascarpone, brûléed sugar - One of my top favourites of the bunch, the cheese brûlée packed quite a punch with it's two cheeses and it's mix of slightly savoury with delectably sweet and sour.

◾Earl Grey Pecan
Almond sponge, pecan butter, earl grey cream - The smooth pecan butter worked wonders with the earl grey cream. The flavour combination was perfect in every way.

◾Lime Basil
Lime sponge, lime basil curd, white chocolate cream - The flavours of their lime basil tart was quite subtle, with an overpowering hint of basil. It actually reminded me of Sourbombe's Rhubarb Basil bombe to be honest.

◾Mont Blanc
Rum sponge, cassis coulis, chestnut rum mousse, chestnut cream - This was my favourite out of all of the tarts. Dang thar cassis coulis we sublime and the inclusion of rum brought it to a whole nother level. (I don't really drink but put alcohol in desserts and I'm like hell yeah.)

I'm glad to have come across Shio Patisserie's delicate tarts and I do hope to see more flavours from them! Perhaps even a collab with their sister company Denzy? Ice-cream + tarts = Profit.

I came across the gorgeous dessert works of art from @kura.singapore while exploring the Herencia a while ago. Tucked away in a little corner of lifestyle store - Crane Living, my gaze was instantly drawn to the sweet treats that were displayed.

I wanted to try almost everything from Kura, but alas I told myself to chill and get their gift box instead - which included:

◾ Strawberry Cheese
Having seen the block of cheese dessert trend a while ago, I knew I just had to try it. A subtle blend of strawberry guava compote and cream cheese mousse - this block of cheese would even satisfy both Tom and Jerry.

◾La Vie En Rose
The second dessert that caught my eye and that was included in the box was their La Vie En Rose. Damn, that's one pretty looking thing and it was devastating to have to destroy it. Who knew a rose could be comprised of sea salt dark chocolate and milk chocolate.

◾Key Lime Tart
I absolutely love the combination of sweet and sour - lemon meringue being one of my favourite flavours. The Key Lime Tart was pretty much the little brother of Lemon Meringue but was just as good and almost identical in flavour profiles.

◾Mango Citrus
The most delicate dessert of the box is their Mango Citrus. Delicious mousse with fresh mango, grapefruit and lime zest - it was as refreshing as summer.

Well, now I know The Herencia could house such a hidden gem of a patisserie and I'll definitely love to try more from Kura if I'm ever in the area again.

Don't be fooled by the rose - it's actually a dessert by @kura.singapore that is made out of sea salt chocolate, dark chocolate cream and cacao nibs. A hidden gem located in The Herencia, Kura offers up artisan dessert art that's too pretty to eat.

Even though it was simply too gorgeous to cut into - alas, it's time had come for me to dig into it. A mix of smooth sea salt chocolate and dark chocolate on top a tart base, the bittersweet flavours complemented one another while the cacao nibs added another dimension of crunch for texture.

This rose is definitely meant to be shared though - it's richness proved too much for even my own sweet tooth!

The long queues for @petitpain.sg are a testament to how good their bakes and viennoiseries are.

One of my favourites apart from their Apple Danish is their Escargot. Buttery, flaky pastry filled with raisins - how can something so simple be so good. Just look at all those laminated layers. It's amazing how Petit does them oh so well while keeping their prices so low - any other typical bake shop would have sold this for 6-8 bucks. It's no wonder people keep coming back for more - and that includes moi of course.

Known for their delicious BIEI Milk cream puffs, @baristartcoffee_sg has come up with a new local flavour for the month of August - Milo Dinosaur!

If you've had the the OG flavour before, you'll know that these puffs are filled to the brim with luscious cream. Their crisp choux pastry topped with craquelin adds another level of texture and the new Milo Dinosaur variation would just blow all you Milo lovers away. Now I love my milo so this definitely satisfies the milo craving for sure. It's only available till end of August, so head down quick to get your Milo fix!

One of my favourites from @_ymbakery_ is none other than their Banoffee Tart. It's so good that I'm always afraid it gets sold out before I get there.

A sweet mix of banana, coffee and chocolate - it always leaves me wanting more. Not to mention that it doesn't put a damper on my wallet, which makes eating this just much more enjoyable!

Yet another delicious and eyecatching piece of dessert art from @tigerlilypatisserie is none other than their Pink Guava & Pear.

Consisting of fresh pears, pink guava jelly, Elderflower and pear mousse, the subtle flavours of guava and pear make such a perfect yet refreshing combination. The cake itself is extremely delicate and sweet; slicing like butter - the total opposite of their sturdy chocolate shelled Beehive.

I did noticed that they didn't name this dessert of theirs and I couldn't help but think they should call it "Terrazzo". (Cos of how it looks and how the tables of Tigerlily are all made of terrazzo! Aye.)

Check out these coveted bombolinis from @sourbombebakery - if you manage to lay your hands on them! The hype is real and getting some of them is no easy feat.

Delectably tangy sourdough paired with ingenious flavour pairings and fillings, the standouts for me include their Basil Cream & Rhubarb - which I initially thought it tasted like pesto but it grew on me and I found it so unique. Their Basque Burnt Cheesecake was also pretty memorable - with a mixture of cream cheese and blue cheese for that added umami ommph. Their Blueberry & Lemon Thyme and Passionfruit Caramelized Banana were super delish as well and a nice reminiscence of a tropical summer.

Do hope to try their sourdough croissants next but I'm probably gonna wait for dem queues to die down for a bit before I do - I ain't no early bird unfortunately (more like a permanently exhausted pigeon oops.)

An eclair every hour makes my Monday not sour. Well, I decided to make a pop art style shot for these fantastic eclairs from @leclairpatisserie because why not? You can never get enough of them!

I've been doing pop art style shots for a while now but have never done it for this page of mine. The results sure look sick though and I'm gonna start doing more for sure!

This ball of "moss" from @tigerlilypatisserie might not seem like much at first - especially compared to the gorgeous Beehive. Well, it got me fooled at first and I was surprised to find that it ended up being my favourite dessert of the bunch from Tigerlily.

Consisting of housemade pistachio praline, pistachio frangipane and pistachio whipped ganache, the sweet and salty balance was perfect in every way with a mix of buttery smooth and a hint of crunch for textures. Pistachios are one of my favourite nuts as well, hence this was a definite winner in my book. Move aside Beehive, this moss ball is the one for me.
