What can you do with $5? For me, I brought happiness for $5. 🙂
I was trekking through my daily tasks at work when my sweet tooth unexpectedly ached for desserts. The thought of a lemon tart melted away any resistance. 🙂
Tucked away in a rather small shopping center is Renaissance Patisserie, my new favorite bakery/pastry stop. In contrast to the plain exterior, the shop is beautifully themed in black and yellow and embellished with small chandeliers. Two display cases are stocked with a variety of desserts and bakery items. Freshly baked croissants, Danishes, eclairs, tarts, cheesecakes and more. 🙂
For a moment, I baffled at all my options. How can I make a choice?! Do I want a delicate multi-puff-layered napoleon or a decadent chocolate mousse?
I finally decided to take the decadent chocolate mousse. 🙂 The soft chocolate coating with creamy chocolate mousse and a surprise raspberry middle garnished with chocolate swirls.
It is beautiful when plated and lip-smacking good when consumed. 🙂
I’d say I spent my lunch hour very wisely! 🙂
