Ciel Patisserie is a modest establishment that serves satisfyingly charming pastries and cakes produced with French and European techniques, all of which are made exceptional with quality ingredients. Ciel’s Strawberry Shortcake is a no-fuss serving of soft sponge cake decked with lightly sweetened whipped cream and juicy fresh strawberries, and the Opera cake is a slice of heaven, combining the aromatic flavors of French style Joconde sponge cake layered with dark chocolate ganache and rich chocolate buttercream, eloquently accentuated with a chocolate glaze. This pattern of both simple and extravagant seems to highlight a consistent pattern of options, with a little something for everyone. While Scarlet is an elevated non-bake cheesecake, made with cream cheese mousse with a hint of lemon and a hidden section of red fruit gelee atop a crumbly Digestive biscuit base, Bombe is a rich chocolate mousse dome cake bursting with a treasure trove of fresh blueberries and a crispy hazelnut feulletine base. Then there’s the good ol’ fudgy Brownie with a folding of crunchy nuts, as well as Sel, an elegant, sweet and salty juxtaposition of dark chocolate ganache slice atop a sea-salted buttery shortbread base. If chocolate isn’t your thing, Fraiche, a fresh fruit tart filled with vanilla pastry cream and fresh fruits on a buttery crust, will win your heart with the sheer richness of natural flavors. There’s also Peche, a sweet peach tart with vanilla pastry cream and juicy glazed peach slices.
