My MIL introduced me to Centre PS while I was scouting around for places to make my ROM cake. Her friend, who is(or maybe was) a food journalist from a local newspaper is a great fan and loyal customer of Pattisier Chef Steven Ong.Centre PS, pronounced phonetically as Centre Piece (it took me ages to get this right, I kept saying P S) was started in 2007. Chef Steven Ong has an impressive resume; he has experience in leading pastry kitchens in Conrad Centennial and Intercontinental hotel, as well as representing Singapore in numerous regional and international pastry competitions.
Virginia was extremely helpful and patient while assisting with the process of choosing my ROM cake. Thumbs up for her personalized service!
Centre PS’s éclairs are to die for! They have set my benchmark for éclairs. Being extremely popular, they just fly off the shelves; I suggest calling 1 day in advance to place a reservation for these babies. All 3 flavors, namely chocolate, coffee and lemon were heavenly. In addition, they are rather dense, which means you are paying for solid stuff, not air.
Pisa cake: Pistachio biscuit layers with raspberry compote and vanilla bean bavaroise. I can never have enough of this. Sometimes I crave for heavy and rich cakes, but get sick of them after a few mouthfuls. Other times I fancy light and delicate cakes, but yet I don’t feel satisfied after finishing them. Pisa cake encompasses the best of both textures; not too heavy yet not too light with perfect amount of moisture and flavor to delight the most fussy tongues.
The patisserie offers customization for weddings, baby first month, corporate functions etc etc.I favor mini cakes over cupcakes as I find cupcakes less formal, more suitable for engagement parties. You can choose designs from a catalogue or sketch your own design.To add a touch of glam to the garden ceremony, I chose 2 tier mini cakes. My apologies for the poorly taken picture; the actual colour of the cake is lavendar. Centre PS has a long list of pound cake flavors; I selected lemon, vanilla with chocolate chips and green tea.
