This is a half portion as I shared this with a friend! The pickled cherry blossom financier was soft and moist, but I wasn’t a fan of the milky taste, and would have preferred a stronger almond taste (since financiers are almond-based). The cherry blossom didn’t really add much as it was really small, but had it been more substantial it would have given a nice boost of flavour.

The pistachio & raspberry cookie was kinda in between a crunchy and chewy cookie - it was neither here nor there. I did like the valrhona choc & raspberry on top.

The matcha yuzu madeleines were the nicest out of everything. It wasn’t too crumbly or cakey - I liked the texture! The yuzu gave a pleasant citrus flavour, and the matcha taste was present.

Overall, my friend and I were slightly disappointed by the bakebox as it had received raving reviews, and it fell short of expectations. We appreciate the effort put into making the treats, but we just feel that it’s nothing to shout about.

In total agreement with those who had said that her bakes tasted just as good as it looks, I found @shesells.seashells.sg creations to be absolutely exquisite. At $19, the Eco Box Set features two of each item which I thought was quite a steal.

Delivering a subtle saltiness and piquancy to the buttery financiers, the addition of pickled cherry blossom may not be for everyone but was certainly enjoyable for me. The tanginess cutting the sweetness and the richness of the pastry. Light and tender with a slight crisp along the edges, the texture of the Pickled Cherry Blossom Financiers were also great.

Soft classic French treats flavoured with matcha powder, the Matcha & Yuzu Madeleines were delightful. With pieces of yuzu hidden within, the moist interior offers a citrusy-sweet fragrance that was well-complemented by the gentle earthiness of the tea. Glazed with Suntory's Roku gin, the shell-shaped cookies come with an alcohol-free option as well.

Perfect with a cup of tea, the Pistachio & Raspberry Cookies were loaded with toppings such as streusel and dried bits of the said fruit. The chopped nuts on the freshly baked pistachio-based cookies also provided an added crunch and after warming them up in the oven, the melted dark chocolate gave that extra bit of indulgence.

So, keep your eyes peeled for the next upcoming bake sale via the Telegram channel if you want to snag a box for yourself!
