Citrus cheesecake @ Arome Bakery Room Jun 14, 2012
Overall it was quite refreshing with the combination of grapefruit as well because it is usually lemon.
The texture of the cheesecake was light and smooth.

Novelty fun and delicious eclairs with quality May 03, 2012
Before there was Arome bakery room, I rarely bought from Arome bakery because it sold cream cakes made with localised cream and other localised bakery items so it was not my cup of tea.
However Arome bakery room appeals to me because the bakery is Western style with a Japanese touch and the quality is slightly better leading to it prices higher than the ordinary Arome Bakery.
As well as the bakery products, the design of the bakery and the menu matched the overal theme as well.
I really liked the eclair illustrations and the room where they actually make the eclairs.
I was drawn to their eclairs because each one was neatly made and the icing was nicely finished off.
There were five flavours and I couldnt decide because each one was unique in its own way so I got them all and it seemed the box was made for holding five flavours perfectly.
The eclairs cost $19 which is slightly cheaper than the average bakery item at Starbucks or Pacific Coffee and the quality is surprising good as well.
Although I do not like white chocolate, the white chocolate icing was not that creamy and on top of the eclair there were pieces of real dehydrated oranges which gave it a nice citrus taste to balance out the sweet white chocolate.
The dehydrated orange pieces were really nice.
Usually green tea items are flavoured with green tea powder, however I was really impressed that on the top of the eclair it had real pieces of green tea leaves.
The filling inside was silky smooth green tea filling as well.
I do not usually like green tea but this one was nice.
The caramel pieces on top of this eclair were strong and you could taste the butteryness of it.
This is the most popular eclair sold at Arome Bakery Room, its appearance and taste did not disappoint.
It had freeze dried pieces of raspberry on top and raspberry cream custard in the middle.
This was also one of my favourites because the filling inside had hazelnut flavouring and it was topped with generous amounts of roasted hazelnuts.
I don’t usually like purple potato as a dessert but just tried it anyway.
I was surprised I really liked it.
It had that starchy texture that I didn’t like however the sweet potato puree was really fine so the starchiness was silky.
Also the mousse inside was extremely silky and light, so the two were a good combination.
In the centre there was more purple potato filling but a little coarser and there were pieces of apple to refresh the palate as well.
Although it was not sweet to start off, it got sweeter towards the end.
The base of this cake was interesting it was chewy and I liked it!
This is available in slices or as a whole cake.
There were so many layers: a biscuit layer, hazelnut layer mixed with caramel, chocolate, pistachio mousse, cream and some more nuts on top.
The pistachio nut on top was a whole piece and it was candied so it was sweet and crunchy.
The cream on the top was so light and the sweetness was light as well with a fluffy meringue texture.
Nearer the base of the cake, it was also nice they had a layer of nuts and the nuts were bound together by some caramel.
I know saying the hazelnuts had hazelnut taste is lame but these hazelnuts really did have a strong roasted hazelnut taste and not like other lame hazelnuts that just have a crunch but no taste!
Although Arome bakery has a website, I would love to see a separate website for Arome Bakery room because they have so many nice graphics and cake illustrations which could be put on there.
The cakes look and taste good and almost like novelty displays!
