Macarons and sponge cakes are not the usual kind of desserts you’d think of to break fast with during iftar, but this patisserie is hoping to change that.

Local bakery Elevete Patisserie is incorporating delectable Malaysian flavours into their Ramadan menu, featuring favourites such as butterfly pea flower, pandan, gula melaka, bunga kantan, and sirap bandung.

We love Malaysian flavours and wanted to share them in a more modern way.

And modern it certainly is. The seasonal special is the Aidilfitri Fatcarons and Ramadan Manis Macarons, though they also have a featured Onde-onde Truffle, chiffon cake rolls in local flavours, and variety box of various cake flavours too.

The Taste Test

We were invited to try them all at Elevete Patisserie’s kitchen in Taman Mayang Jaya.

The standout and personal favourite was the Bunga Telang Bar (right), made with butterfly pea flower chiffon, sous vide kaya, coconut cream, and pulut tai tai.

Edwin shares that the kaya is fully made in-store with the sous vide technique, cooked at 80°C for 6 hours for the right consistency. The effort certainly pays off, as the fragrant kaya acts as a perfect saucy companion to the light chiffon with real bunga telang flavour. Despite the rich visuals, the cake itself is rather airy and very appetising.

Those who enjoy richer coconut flavours would enjoy the Roulade Rasa Sayang, which features light pandan roll, gula melaka syrup, coconut cream, and Hawaiian coconut. Paired with buttercream, the end result is a richer texture with fragrant and sweet and slightly smoky gula melaka syrup, which is supplied directly from Melaka without the addition of brown sugar.

The Onde-onde Truffle is a fun one, as it looks exactly like the onde-onde kuih we know and love, but it is actually a white chocolate truffle with a surprise burst of gula melaka syrup inside. As expected, the truffle is a bit of a sugar bomb, but that’s why it’s fun, after all.

Fans of macarons will definitely love the exceptional texture and taste of this dessert. Pillowy with a hint of a chew, paired with gorgeously flavoured buttercream filling, these macarons are worth every bite and every bit of hype it deserves.

Macarons are notoriously tempermental and have a very specific texture which requires a great amount of control. However, rest assured that Elevete Patisserie macarons certainly deliver it right.

‘Fatcarons’ is portmanteau of ‘fat macarons’, in the sense that it has two layers of thick buttercream filling instead of just one. Edwin’s team takes it one step further by adding actual bits of stuffing inside, such as chunks of pulut tai tai or real bits of bunga telang, for a pleasant surprise.

The Verdict

Elevete Patisserie’s desserts are always visually stunning, and that’s the case here as well. Your eyes will first feast on the vibrant reds, pinks, greens, and blues. The colours used are gorgeous, but we are assured it’s all made from natural local ingredients.

The Fatcarons also come nicely decorated, perfect as a gift!

Taste-wise, the dessert collection certainly held true to its local roots. If you enjoy local dessert flavours like gula melaka, coconut, and pandan, you should definitely give these limited-time desserts a shot.

The desserts are not that sweet, so it would appeal to the older crowd as well.

I believe desserts should be accessible for everyone. It’s meant to be enjoyed together.
