I'd long heard of the gorgeous and divine creations at Flor Patisserie, a confectionery that blends the minimalist sensibilities of the Japanese and exacting sophistication of the French. Pronounced "fu-ro-ru" in Japanese, the confections here are exquisite and sumptuous.
Their signature, the Berry Berries ($28.25 for 12cm x 12cm cake), an airy-fairy sponge layered with lusciously gossamer fresh cream and studded with summer berries, is a must-order. I loved how wonderfully light this was. A most awesome round-off to a heavy luncheon.
The Fruit Tart ($51.35 for 18cm) didn't fare too badly either. Smooth creamy custard was set in a buttery crumbly shell and crowned with a melange of sweet fresh fruits.
Rich but nuanced, the Cacao Royale ($6.95) layered chocolate sponge with dark chocolate ganache and hazelnut feuillitine.
