Fruit-flavored cubed cakes steal the show here. The cakes – made in an array of seasonal fruit flavors, from strawberry to peach – are painstakingly fashioned into the most perfect cube shape. The inaugural creation is the Kiyomi Orange cubed cake: a white chocolate crisp case in a smooth orange hue, contains a complex medley of layers including almond biscuit slices, an orange compote, orange blossom water and at its heart, a basil mousse infused with orange zest. The gateaux de voyage follow a similar seasonal pattern, containing orange paste filling, lots of zest, Grand Marnier and sponge, surrounded by a crispy white chocolate with an almond nibs coating.
A range of 12 exquisitely handcrafted chocolates – also in a perfect square shape – are another highlight. With an unwavering focus on the high quality of the raw ingredients, the treats are crafted in-house using premium Valrhona chocolate from France, alongside creams from Japan. The end result is a selection of chocolates as intricately designed as they are deeply flavorsome. Some are dusted with real gold; others have a fruity edge, maybe a warm fusion of banana and rum or the distinct tang of a passion fruit compote. Each, however, looks unique – with different patterns, colors and textures transforming every single chocolate into a small but perfectly formed culinary work of art.
