VIVE Cake Boutique Turns Three This Summer

July 30, 2018 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

In celebration of Vive Cake Boutique’s third anniversary, the celebrity-loved pâtisserie will launch three decadent and insta-worthy treats together with special offers from 1 to 31 August, 2018, which will dazzle and delight guests in VIVE Cake Boutique’s Wanchai and Central stores, which are transformed into a whimsical wonderland embodying the magic that, Founder, Vivien Lau, has brought to the dessert lovers of Hong Kong.

Inspired by the unicorn, a symbol of creativity and of imagination, and a staple element in the VIVE ethos, Vivien and her imaginative team introduces the mythical Magicorn character to embody an enchanting story about the VIVE brand and creations. VIVE’s Magical Unicorn has a love for indulging all kinds of desserts, and Magicorn’s favorite dessert is the much-loved Uni-Cone cake, which empowers her with happiness with each bite, and opens the sky up with rainbow-rain to spread happiness around the world.

A multi-coloured “Magicorn Dreamland” (HK$880) cake is every child and adult’s dream come true. A vanilla base confetti cake filled with a unique cotton candy buttercream, the made-to-share cake is draped with pastel coloured icing reminiscent of a candy coloured dream while magical creatures of imagination of the mythical unicorn rises from a mountain of artfully crafted dessert stars, featuring an upside-down ice-cream cone and a pink coloured chocolate bar.

Latte lovers can opt their traditional cup of joe for a light pink coloured strawberry latte with fresh cream. Designed in the likeness of a darling unicorn, the “Magicorn Strawberry Latte”(HK$68), is served in a clear glass with faux lashes and whipped cream in the shape of horn.

Those who fancy all things cute will regale in “It’s Magicorn” (HK$68), a creamy cotton candy ice-cream sandwich with white coloured unicorn shaped macarons, crafted with lush black lashes, golden “ears” and a small golden “horn” to emulate a unicorn.  Too beautiful to eat, too tasty to not eat, these treats are perfect to enjoy in store.

The theme of magic does not stop at the capricious creations on one’s plate. Vive Cake Boutique’s stores in Wanchai and Central will be transformed into two unique wonderlands to perpetuate the joyful feeling of magic for all of its diners. Daydreamers are invited to rest their head in the clouds at the Central store, where fluffy white clouds reminiscent of a dreamy sky hang from the ceiling. Amongst the clouds are metallic stars and wondrous unicorns, truly transporting one into a land of blissful imagination.

A utopic Midsummer’s night dream awaits in the Wanchai store, where blooming roses in shades of love form a Pink Rose Garden. A romantic swing calls to mind a lush garden tea party.

From 1 to 31 August, special anniversary offers will be available to mark this momentous celebration. Diners who order signature Uni-cone cakes will receive a Magicorn portable charger especially designed by Vivien. Selected signature cake orders, including Smitten with You, Birthday Bliss, and The British Roses will receive a 15% discount.

A multi-layer cake which comes in pastel pink and baby blue, Smitten with You (original priced from HK$850) is a visual blend of classically enticing sweet treats, with an inverted ice cream cone, soft meringues, perfect macarons and heart shaped chocolates adorning the cake. Birthday Bliss (original priced from HK$930) gives birthday celebrants the best of all things sweet such as a doughnut, ice cream cone, oreos and macaron in a multi-coloured and multi-tiered cake. The elegant The British Roses (original priced from HK$730) features a robin egg blue colour buttercream cake, garnished with pink rose buds and polka dots. Each of these signature cakes captures the wild and playful imagination of Founder Vivien Lau, lending Vive Cake Boutique its trademark style.

On 9 August, VIVE’s official birth date, diners who visit for their daily cup of specialty coffee will be treated to a complimentary second cup, perfect for sharing the joy with friends and family.

“In celebration of our third anniversary, we are delighted to invite guests to step into our imagination, the source of our inspiration,” shares Vivien Lau. “We hope that dessert lovers who visit our store will enjoy a sensory experience to remember.”

Vive Cake Boutique has proved a roaring success story since being launched with online orders in 2014 by founder and creative director Vivien Lau, who discovered her passion and talent by chance, making her first cake for a friend’s birthday. Her signature ‘handmade with love’ cakes, cupcakes, macarons, cookies, confectioneries and tailor-made cakes for weddings and special occasions, are all made from scratch from finest ingredients sourced from all over the world.

VIVE’s iconic “Uni-Cone” cake is in light pastel tones with exquisitely crafted cake designs spotlights a kaleidoscope layered with eight different flavours.

VIVE’s widespread acclaim includes Time Out’s listing among the “crème de la crème of Hong Kong’s bespoke dessert makers” – with a massive celebrity and socialite following including Aaron Kwok, Charlene Choi, Gillian Chung, Niki Chow, Sharon Chan and Miki Yeung.

Vive Cake Boutique offers seating at both boutique cafes, for 12 in Wan Chai and 18 in Central.
