Scents & Sensibility @ Deliciously Chocolate

Now is the springtime of our contentment; Deliciously Chocolate has unveiled "Scents and Sensibility," a season-inspired selection of sweets that blossoms with fresh fragrances of nature.

Macarons, perfumed like no other in KL, filled with fantastically rich buttercream. Violet macarons with blackberry buttercream infused with rose and violet (our favorite of the bunch!), peach macarons with peach and vanilla buttercream and green tea macarons layered with jasmine flower and green tea-flavored buttercream. RM18 for a bag of six.

Mini cupcakes, with lots of luscious frosting, precisely the way we like 'em. "Bella Rosa" features white chocolate cake with rose-aroma strawberry filling, topped with lychee buttercream, while "Choco Cayenne" is a gently spicy aphrodisiac of dark choc cake with chili-tinged ganache.

Should come with a "Danger: Highly Addictive" warning: "My Darling Lemon Thyme" (nice name!) _ thin, crisp dark choc cookies, laced with lemon thyme and sea salt for sweet-savory nibbling.

Let 'em eat cake: chocolate and orange marble loaf, dense and not too sugary or too dry.

Handcrafted chocolates are also available; we prefer the fully milky ones to the nutty ones.

  4. Macarons! I like them but lots of places nowadays seem to go overboard with the sugar. I went to Canele for tea the other day with my fiancee, both of us had trouble finishing just 6 macarons because of how sweet they were. Even my sweet tooth also cannot tahan (or is it because my sweet tooth is growing less sweet with age? Ha ha).

  5. Maybe I should buy some cookies from here and store them at home. So when we are hungry, we can eat them instead of cooking Maggi Mee. :P

    1. Babe_KL: oh yeah, that's a plus point! i almost tried ordering online, but then i noticed there's an advance notice needed of at least one or two days. so for me, it makes more sense to just drive to the outlet itself, since it's only five minutes from my office =)
