A simple yuzu dessert with reasonably yuzu-ish filling + yuzu cheese and meringue. I liked it, but it’s not one of their more exciting items.

Chocolate mousse was smooth and dark, the sponge was alright. The description mentions a crunchy core of crushed hazelnuts, salted caramel, hazelnut dacquoise but I don’t rmb it being very crunchy, maybe it’s bc I didn’t get to eat much of the crunchy part? I would prefer a crunchy base tho that’s more mainstream and not entremet-like. The feuilletine at the side was nice and crunchy. I do prefer other choc mousse cakes / entremets tho, maybe it’s also because their items are not served cold and I prefer chilled mousse-based desserts.

When I saw this extremely red item I thought I wouldn’t like it (the colouring 🥲) but I actually liked this a lot!! The caramelised apple peach tartin was sweet and juicy, rly liked this part. It came with a cream cheese mousse which was ok, and a v delicious sweet and salty biscuit base - the saltiness was apparent such that it made me take notice (even without reading the description of the components), but in a controlled and not too salty manner. Would definitely have this again!

I couldn’t really taste the raspberry, but the grape was prominent and I liked the actual sliced grapes in it. The mille feuille was super crisp and buttery! Not bad but it’s really hard to eat with a fork / to share.

Rose sponge layered with a refreshing lychee cremeux, lychee bits, rose ganache, rose mousse. Was quite refreshing bc the lychee bits were ice-cold, and the components complemented each other. Not a fan of lychee / rose so I can say I like it, but it was well done and 2 of my colleagues picked this as their fav out of the 8 items we got.

What a delicious tart!! For 3 of us, it was the favourite out of the 8 items we got. The earl grey creme was smooth and fragrant with a prominent earl grey flavour, but not overly floral. The orange curd and jelly were citrusy but not sour, complemented the earl grey v nicely. Tart crust was nice as usual, crunchy and buttery, not soggy nor too hard. It’s definitely something I would have again / get as a gift.

The crust was buttery and crunchy, and the tart was filled with a pistachio cremeux, hazelnut praline, and vanilla chantilly, topped with pistachio nuts. The pistachio cremeux was lightly nutty and silky, not a very intense pistachio flavour but it’s okay bc it’s less gelat / sweet plus atipico does it like that too and I like atipico a lot 😛 I did wish the hazelnut praline was more prominent tho. Still a pleasant dessert, but not my first pick.

Wasn’t a big fan of this. The cake texture is fine, not dry but not v moist either, and I couldn’t rly taste any goma. The pb was way too thick and was this plasticky layer - neither crunchy or creamy. There were any components in this cake that saved it, sorry.

The description on the tag that came with this was “moist soft cake with fruity brandy” - it was indeed soft and moist! Texture was really nice. Loved the depth of flavour. A warm/spiced flavour, slightly alcoholic & sweet. Think fruit cakes have a bad rep bc of the dry crumb / unpleasant dried fruit bits (that get stuck in ur teeth 😢) but this cake has none of that. Bot sure what exactly is in there but there's definitely raisins and figs - big love for figs be of how naturally sweet it is + the crunchy seeds. Everyone at the Christmas party enjoyed it!

Liked the gooey lava-ish almond filling/frangipane in this! And the crisp edges. But I’ve had better, this was kinda average.

KA was a tad too sweet as expected but this was a bit more bready than other KAs I’ve tried! it has a pleasant buttery sweet flavour, and was super flaky / sufficiently crisp. Only thing is that some of the sugar crystals were a bit hard. Definitely share this bc it can get a little sweet.

A laminated pastry topped with cream cheese, jam & berries. Cream cheese was rather sweet, surprisingly not much of a tang. Not soggy, but could be crispier. It's a pleasant snack, but I don't think I would repurchase. Quite a large portion, bigger than the average croissant - thankfully we had 4 to share amongst.
