Teddy bear macarons
If your kids love cute animal-shaped desserts,
Tiny Temptress should be your first stop. What started as an online macaron shop in 2013 – that quickly gained attention from dessert lovers with its adorable and photogenic creations – is now a full-fledged patisserie with cosy outlets in Sri Petaling and Bangsar.
Stepping into the café, you’d be hard pressed for choice; opt for the colourful macarons with different flavours such as lychee rose, chocolate mint, dark chocolate and caramel white chocolate or try their signature salted egg yolk macaron (the egg is smiling!). Parents needn’t worry about sweetness levels because cuteness aside, Tiny Temptress’s macarons contain 30 percent less sugar than the norm.
Besides macarons, they also have an array of other scrumptious desserts, such as L’Affection – a symphony of lychee cream, chocolate glaze, strawberry gelée, almond joconde sponge, on a biscuit base – and Bear Necessity, which is oolong mousse and passion fruit over a biscuit base. Head here for a teatime treat and cuteness overload.
