Chateraise

Chateraise is housed in the basement of Westgate Shopping Centre right inside Isetan and they are known for their sweets, pastry and desserts from Japan. I came to realise the existence of the shop when my girl friend raved about their pastries and desserts, telling me that the whole family likes their swiss rolls as well as cakes.

Chateraise
Recently, during a visit to my house, she caught hold of my stomach with "Double" Fantasy. It was then we start to believe that Chateraise was real good!

At Chateraise
As I was queuing up for my pastries & Cakes, I took a look into the chiller. They have assorted and varieties of cake to choose from. Some of the cakes on display were actually fake ones with the real ones kept in the chiller.

Varieties
With just a few glance, I would say these delicate little stuff can really blew my mind especially when I see the Happy Little Bear and Happy little Bunny. I just feel like adopting them, into my stomach. :)

Bring Me Home
A number tag will be given to you once orders are made. Thereafter, we will show this to the cashier and he/she will consolidate and ask for payment. The transaction process is sequential which i felt quite good about it.

Number Tag
Here's our buy! The pastry has individual packaging for handling.

My Buys
Double Fantasy has lived up to its name with 2 layers of cream inserted in the puff. It crust was velvety soft, texture goes very well with the cream.

Double Fantasy - $1.90
The first layer consists of fresh Hokkaido Cream while the second layer with egg custard cream. Yummy!

Double Kinds of Cream
The "Zebra" or mille crepe has 18 layers, soft and fluffy with fresh cream evenly spread in between them. It was yummy and came with a top layer of honey, a perfect go with the crepe.

Zebra - $4.50
Simply love the combination of the two light fluffy pastry shells that is fantastically soft with strawberry cream cheese sandwich in between.

Fuwari - $1.90
Mascapone cream cheese made in Hokkaido and home made strawberry jam made of Californian strawberries is being used here and its so yummy!

Strawberry & Cream Cheese

Out of its packaging
The Pandan Cream Roll was so adorable that I could not bear to eat it. The Swiss Roll was very soft, better than my expectation and only costs $1.90. Fresh cream had sandwiched in between the roll with a comforting taste without having the thought of being too sinful.

Panda Cream Roll - $1.90
The pancakes with Azuki Bean & Cream threw another surprise to me. They were pillow soft. At the bite, it gave a burst of refreshing and satisfying taste.

Azuki Bean & Cream Pancake - $1.90
The first time when I was at Chateraise, the Eclair was sold out but luckily this time round I manage to grab one. Eclair was about a 15cm ruler length size

Custard Cream Eclair - $1.90
 Yummy!

Custard Filling
A matcha cake made to impress with a layer of red beans and chinese chestnut, elegantly created with starring shades of colors in its layer.

Matcha Bombe Cake - $4.70
Sweetness was not too cloying and matcha cream was good enough.

A side view of Matcha Bombe Cake
Airy light and spongy soft cake was the plus points to this piece of legendary cake while the luscious fresh red strawberries were juicy, giving bonus points to its name.

Legendary Fresh Cream Cake - $5.10
As a hobby baker myself, I am amazed by the softness level from Chateraise. Though it may sound a tad expensive on the pastry but I would say buying that is money well spend as its quality and taste is good.
