The caramel mousse stole the show– there is just no denying the intoxicating burnt aroma of the salted caramel, and the deep chocolatey notes of the ganache and tart base sealed the deal for us.

An elegant triple-play on lychee, this dainty cheesecake bears a delicate fragrance of lychee and rose, nestles sweet cubes of lychee within, and is overlaid with lychee jelly.

 

10. PASSIONE
$90 for 18cm, from Mad about Sucre, 27 Teo Hong Road, tel: 6221-3969.

This passion fruit-infused sponge-andcheesecake number keeps it chic with a subtle whiff of the tropical fruit. Be sure to savour every bite with the crumbs of caramelised cocoa nib wafers.
