Holiday sweet treats
Put a smile on family or friends’ faces with chef Janice Wong’s 2020 collection.
With the pandemic in the backdrop, you can still enjoy the holiday with family or friends with a little sweet treat. This year’s collection of treats called Larger than Life by chef Janice Wong will transport you to an exciting Winter Wonderland filled with oversized creativity, colour and imagination. The collection was inspired by Janice’s adventures across Europe.
The collection sees the creation of four handmade Christmas cake specials. Unique and delectable flavours include Raspberry Pecan Nougat Banana Cake in the shape of a Christmas tree; Blackcurrant Praline Dark Chocolate modelled on a festive bauble; a Santa hat filled with raspberry pistachio lime, as well as a classic Christmas fruit cake. All cakes are priced at S$9.50 and are available for purchase until the end of December 2020.
Janice’s much-loved Strawberry Champagne Cake (1.2kg) from her first High Tea series that celebrated her part in the movie, ‘Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles’ will also be making a very special return this Christmas season priced at S$112 per cake.
There are also big creations in the collection, including a 1.4kg XXL Single Origin Dark Chocolate Bar (S$119). Wrapped in a chocolate bar box, the indulgent bar is a bean to bar single origin chocolate from Columbia and even comes with a hammer. The XXL Cookie Set (S$78) sees oversized cookies with the option to add a customisable message.
Rounding off the collection are the Chocolate Gems Christmas Specials (S$110), an assortment of festive chocolate with flavours including mulled wine, apple pie and peppermint. For traditional Christmas classics, there is also the Assorted Christmas Cookie Tin (S$35), fresh Madeleines sold in boxes of five (S$15), Chocolate Surprise Christmas Tree Praline Truffles (S$75) and classic Christmas Chocolate Bars (S$9.50), which are all available for purchase at online and in-store.
The popular festive hampers from Janice also return for this year’s collection. In partnership with florist Fiore Dorato, The Chocolate Gems Christmas Flower Hamper (S$215) has colourful bite-sized chocolates in a festively floral box. Other hampers include the Baking Hamper Set, the Creative Hamper Set and the Tea Time Hamper Set. All hampers are priced at S$50. In a special collaboration series, the Macallan Edition 6 (S$280) comes with a pairing of Chocolate Truffle, which makes it an excellent post-dinner dessert. Available for purchase in-store, all hampers can be topped up with a bottle of wine or champagne for an extra serving of Christmas cheer.
