Similar to my favourite Strawberry Hills, Patisserie Glace has a similar new addition. Set in an almond tart base, there are layers of custard cream, pear slices, almond frangipane, chantilly cream and sponge cake, topped off with fresh mangoes.
The combination of almond frangipane and custard cream maybe sweet to people who has a low threshold towards sweetness. Apart from that, like most tarts in Patisserie Glace, the fragrance and crispness of the tart pastry coupled with the varying layers is bound to be well-accepted by most. An 18-cm cake can easily feed 8 people and is priced at $44. Note that the cookie tag cost $3 and ice packs are available at $0.50 per piece which is essential for transportation as the chantilly cream melts fast.

P.S. My colleagues happened to eat both the Strawberry Hills and Mango Rhapsody in a go and her preference is inclined towards Mango Rhapsody since the former is sweet to her liking; anyway, one of them finds it so good that she is so tempted to drop by a visit the next day to pick up some for her family. Bottom line, it is worth a trip down to try this unique marriage of tart and cake.
