Colette & Lola would be one of those places you must consider going for a treat. With the tag line 'cakes & dreams' one feels as you push the cupcake shaped handle of this cake shop that there lies a world of gastronomical delights inside. The interior certainly doesn't disappoint. I felt like a 5 year old in a candy store as I was tickled with pastel pinks, blues, yellows and greens. The shelves are covered with baking treasures and trinkets and I felt the need to pick up everything and touch it. We were handed a menu, but told that only soft drinks and water were available. No problem. If I want coffee I will go to a cafe. I'm here for the cake and want to savour every mouthful, not have it overpowered or washed away with swigs of coffee. We went with the bottle of water.
There was a decent selection of cakes to choose from that included individual cakes, cupcakes and macarons. We settled on 'My Lady Grey', 'Bittersweet Love' and 'Oreo Cake'.
The cakes were priced at around Rp.28,000 and above.
First up was 'My Lady Grey' a delicious mousse and sponge cake infused with the subtle taste of Lady Grey tea. I personally adore Earl Grey and Lady Grey tea so this really tickled my taste buds. This had enough of the taste of tea. The addition of the chocolate topping and the chocolate sponge in the middle of the mousse was perfect.
Next up was 'Bittersweet Love' a chocolate tart with a biscuit base and a chocolate ganache filling. This was probably my least favourite. The biscuit base was a little dry and hard when it was first served up (maybe because it had just come out of the fridge?) but I would have liked the base a little more moist. It was actually starting to come away from the tart at one point and we all know that all good tarts should keep their important bits together....
Finally, there was the Oreo Cake. This was very appetising with its soft chocolate sponge base and creamy Oreo topping that had bits of soft Oreo biscuit going through it. This was probably my favourite of the three. Don't miss a visit if you really want to get high on sugar and fulfill your need for some fancy cake.
