Three On Canton At Gateway Hotel Presents Exquisite Afternoon Tea Delights

October 2, 2014 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

It’s always difficult to say “No” to delightful desserts. Three on Canton is proud to present five exquisite afternoon tea patisseries to pamper your sweet tooth from 1 September to 30 November 2014.

Located at Harbour City, the largest shopping complex in Hong Kong, Three on Canton is the best place to relax after crazy shopping. Five delicately-made patisseries, including Sache Delight, Angel Charm, Domino, Love in Heaven and Creamy Queen, will be rolled out for you to enjoy with your friends in the afternoon.

Sache Delight is originated from the royal cake, Sache Torte from Vienna, Austria. In the 17thcentury, Austrian Prince requested his royal pastry chef to design an exceptional cake for his guests, however the chef was sick and this task was taken over by his 16-year-old apprentice, Sache. Sache brilliantly created Sache Torte, which surprised all guests. The cake was then named after him and become a world-renowned patisserie. Pastry chefs at Three on Canton especially bring this luxury cake to guests by using the finest cocoa to bake the fluffy chocolate cake, filling the cake with two layers of apricot jam, and topping it with rich chocolate sauce and garnishing with fresh raspberry and gold foils to make the cake a little extravagant. It is a real temptation to all chocolate lovers.

With its pink and shiny outlook, Angel Charm (Raspberry and mango mousse cake) would definitely catch ladies’ attention. Chefs use fresh raspberries from France to make the butter cake, filling with homemade mango puree and layering with a crispy hazelnut chocolate base. Soft and fluffy mousse cake and crispy hazelnut base are the perfect accompaniment, providing you double enjoyment.

The idea of Domino (Almond egg white “marzipan” cake) comes from a famous traditional British cake, Battenberg cake, which was created to commemorate the royal wedding of Princess Victoria to German Prince Louis of Battenberg. It is designed with contrasting grid pattern and in a rectangular shape. Pastry chefs make the cake with vanilla and chocolate flavoured sponge cakes, and bond them with coffee liqueur so as to form a distinct grid pattern. Coffee liqueur is used to replace the traditional use of apricot jam, and that makes it healthier. The elegant Domino is dressed up with a tasteful marzipan painted in pearl, is simply irresistible.

Another must-try dessert is Love in Heaven (Chestnut and lemon meringue tart). Crispy chocolate meringue tart base matches with smooth and sweet lemon-flavoured light cream, and homemade soft chestnut puree. Fresh berries and chocolate are also added to sweeten your day. With its meticulous design and well-balanced texture and taste, it satisfies your craving for quality sweet.

Another innovation is Creamy Queen, which is a combination of chunky crumble and creamy cheesecake. Chefs apply his secret recipe to bake the cheesecake, which fresh yoghurt is used to make it extra creamy. With skillful techniques and top-notch ingredients, chefs prepare the cookies and then fragment them into pieces of crumble and put them on the cake, offering guests a crunchy surprise.

The five afternoon tea cakes are priced at $45 per piece, and available from 1 September to 30 November at Three on Canton. Come with your beloved girls and experience a noble and relaxing afternoon!
