Recently went to the Christmas party at HABITŪ where we got to preview the coming delights.
A one-stop-shop for all your festive food and drink, HABITŪ has also invited model and pastry chef Amanda Strang to design a collection of cakes and cookies.
The most luxurious of Amanda’s desserts is the White Christmas Log Cake (HK$688), a
vanilla tiramisu mousse with creamy cranberry and sour cherry jelly on a cranberry dacquoise.
(also available in miniature white Christmas Mini Log Cake for HK$52).
Less decadent but no less delicious is Santa’s Chestnut Pound Cake, (HK$25 per slice), which
features marrons glacé and Belgium chocolate flakes folded inside the French butter pound cake.
Finally, Amanda created Rudolph’s Biscuits (HK$98 per box) which are buttery cookies with
hazelnuts, cranberries and cocoa nibs.
Winter lattes were a colourful choice of matcha, beetroot and turmeric which can be made with coffee or coffee free.
The beetroot one was amazing because you can literally taste blended beetroot in it and the Christmas White truffle drinks come with a winged cup or cookie wings if you have it there.
Foodwise, I liked the festive dishes especially the Linguine Pasta with Smoked Turkey in
Beetroot Cream Sauce which is very Christmassy.
Unknown to me, HABITŪ has an impressive cake library that can be ordered!
I loved the sparkling silver cake and the black cake Gothic table chandeliers.
Thanks to HABITŪ we got to have fun and decorate our own personalized cake.
