The Durian Bakery Review: Durian Cakes and Patisseries

 Spending majority of our time at home does not mean we can't enjoy good durian dessert island wide and can only confine to the limited choices around our neighbourhood, everything is possible to order with online delivery being the trend now.

My family is a fan of durian. I was so glad to be introduced to The Durian Bakery, a bakery that specializes in durian-infused cake and patisserie.

Thanks Best in Singapore for the recommendation and awesome finding. Their website is very informative, ranging from food to technology to entertainment to services and finance, they got everything cover.

Here's what I have from The Durian Bakery:

The Durian Bakery offers 8 different types of Durian Cakes under cake selection. Among the selection, Mao Shan Wang Durian Mille Crepe Cake caught my eyes.

The signature freshly baked Mao Shan Wang (MSW) Durian Mille Crepe Cake (Sale price: $88, original price is $108) is about 1kg and able to cut into 8 slices. Just perfect for sharing with my family.

The Durian Mille Crepe cake was like a work of art with a total of 39 layers of creamy goodness, containing 20 layers of thin handmade crepe skin and 19 layers of thick MSW SilkyGold Durian puree. The signature Durian puree was blended through a special process to derive the creamy texture.

It amazed me that how the handmade crepe skin was so thin, yet able to withstand the weight of the generous spread of Durian puree. The pair worked well together to create a rich taste and airy texture that melt in my mouth. The bittersweet taste of the durian puree lingered after every mouthful.

Mao Shan Wang Durian Mille Crepe Cake won the praise from all my family members. I definitely see us ordering again for birthday celebrations (candles and knife provided) because my family loves durian.

Other than cakes, patisseries are available. If you are like me who love to try different variety of patisseries, I recommend you to get Signature Pastries Taster Bundle. The freshly baked bundle (Sale price: $51.90, original price is $55) comes with:

- a box of D24 Durian Choux Puff (12 pieces)
- a box of D24 Snowy Mochi (6 pieces)
- a Dark Choco MSW Mousse

The Snowy D24 Durian Cream Puff was our next favourite. The light airy choux puff pastry was accompanied with generous D24 cream filling in it. 

The richness of the cream filling boosted the richest durian experience and brought out a stronger bittersweet aftertaste than the crepe cake. I enjoyed popping the whole puff into my mouth, letting the flavours burst with each bite and enjoying the durian fragrance that lingers. 

The Dark Choco Musang King Mousse looked too pretty to be eaten with its dome like chocolate shell and shimmered with edible 24k gold dust.

Tucked within the dark chocolate mousse was fresh musang king durian pureed and whipped into a thick creamy texture sat on hazelnut palette feuilletine.

The rich dark chocolate integrated well with the durian puree, you could taste the best of both worlds in just one bite. Though both ingredients are bittersweet in nature, it did not result in the mousse to become even bitter, but complement each other and bring out a different aroma.
My favourite part was the crunchy hazelnut base being added that created a contrast texture of the smooth puree.  

Last but not least was Snowy D24 Durian Mochi which was nicely sealed in a plastic cover. Perfect to place the whole pack in the freezer and have it when we want (can be kept for 30 days in freezer).

Beneath the soft snow skin of mochi was D24 puree. Each bite promised a bursting durian fragrance as though you were having the real durian.

If you are looking for durian cakes and patisseries delivery for celebrations at home, The Durian Bakery is an option for you. Alternatively, you can pick up your orders from their location at The Commerze @ Irving #02-26.
