No need to travel to France to enjoy Merveilleux: Get Yours From La Petite Boulangerie

No need to travel to France to enjoy Merveilleux: Get Yours From La Petite Boulangerie

'Wait, am I at the right place?'

You might easily miss the lovely bakery if you aren't looking out for it. That was my thought when I was searching. Indeed, you have to put in a wee bit of effort for the things you want. 

Just launched under MySelection, La Petite Boulangerie is a small bakery that lays somewhat hidden behind the brand's lifestyle concept store. The store's keystone item is its merveilleux, which the bakery proudly boasts more than 2 years of research and work in. Wanting to launch this pre-COVID, the pandemic had delayed its launch and now, it is ready to meet your tastebuds with a bang. 

The merveilleux, a small cake that originated in Belgium, is now also found in France and some U.S. cities. It is a perfect dessert for those who enjoy light, mini cakes that don't weigh down heavy on your soul afterward. 

The first thought I had when I bit into one of these were that it was so light, so airy. It almost felt like I was biting into a piece of cloud, one with flavour! As always, if you're already following me on Instagram, I've shot a video of it on my IG story, so you can actually see the textures as my spoon whacks center into this sweet fluff ball. 

My favourites flavours from La Petite Boulangerie are the Coconut Kaya (must try!), Tropical Passionfruit and the Cheesecake. And if you're in the mood for some wine, these mini delights would pair well with a glass of chardonnay. 

Full Flavours List Available:

Cheesecake (contains nuts and caffeine): Meringue, cheesecake, whipped cream coated with almond crumble

Coconut Kaya: Meringue, homemade pandan kaya, whipped cream, coated with coconut flakes

Hazelnut praline (contains nuts and caffeine): Meringue, praline, whipped cream coated with caramelised almonds and hazelnuts

Valrhona Chocolate: Meringue, valrhona chocolate, whipped cream coated with valrhona shavings 

Tropical Passionfruit: Meringue, passionfruit, whipped cream coated with coconut crumble and passionfruit bits 

Tiramisu: Meringue, tiramisu, whipped cream coated with home made boudoirs and caramelised coffee almonds

The bakery switches up flavours daily, so make sure you drop them a whatsapp/call (+65 8428 3548) to check in on the flavours-of-the-day with them, or to place orders. 

Also, they serve up lovely Escargots (Danishes), and I got to try the vanilla pearl sugar danish ($5.50 each), which left a lasting impression in the Janel's taste files because of the delectable, crunchy vanilla pearl they used for the topping. 

Carefully sourced, you will not regret this little slice of sweetness which makes it very worth the calories. It was meant to emulate the exterior of choquettes - round, airy choux pastries. 

Alexandre, a French national and the mastermind behind these delectable sweets (and also the CEO of MySelection), shared that he was very careful in ensuring the quality of the pearl sugars ingredient used as it has to fit the criteria of being deliciously sweet and also (importantly!) crunchy with every bite.
