Cope with MCO at home with some boozy ice creams, artisanal desserts, and scrumptious cakes. Or all three.
It’s probably safe to say that even though everyone has different coping mechanisms, there’s a common one that unites us all – and that’s all things sweet and indulgent. Sure, we can make our to-do lists and look up ways for self betterment, but there’ll be days when we just want to curl up and have some ice cream.
Thankfully, these 8 dessert and ice cream shops are here to soothe your MCO woes as they’re offering delivery and takeaway options. You won’t have to worry about being limited to everyday flavours like chocolate and vanilla (although can those classics really go wrong?), as you’ll be able to choose from meticulously crafted cakes to exciting ice cream combinations that will no provide some much needed comfort.
Passion and attention meets high quality in the fine desserts and pastries at Lachér Pâtisserie. Their bougie desserts are made from scratch with only the finest ingredients without any artificial flavouring and preservatives - so you know you’re really getting the good stuff. Set yourself for the week (or binge for a few days) with beautiful cakes such as the Kochi Yuzu Mango Tart, Valrhona Caraibe Hazelnut Praline, Flan au Matcha, or the Salted Caramel Saint-Honore. You can also have a sampling of what Lachér has to offer with their 4-piece Petit Gateaux Box. You can order online via their website.
The refined and carefully created desserts by Chef Marcus Low will be a surefire delight to the sights and tastebuds. He expertly curated various flavour combinations in his sweets, so if you're feeling mad for something fancier and more unique, definitely have a go here.
