Le Petit Gâteau is a small pâtisserie that is mostly visited for its delicious cakes, though it does offer a small selection of pastries and savoury items as well. Since the seating area is very small it can be hard to get a table during the busier hours, but they have cute little takeaway boxes which make it easy to take the cakes home intact. The small cakes are priced at $9.30.
Wendy ~ The lovely bright orange colour of this special edition cake stood out to me over the browns of the chocolate cakes beside it in the cabinet. After hearing that it incorporated apricot, pistachio and white chocolate, I knew I had to try it! The apricot flavour in the jam was light and refreshing while the white chocolate mousse added a creaminess and the crispy pistachio base balanced everything out. It wasn’t heavy at all, and the overall appearance was lovely. I need to find out if I can get my hands on a full sized one!
Ani ~ This cake was a bit smaller than the others, but at the same price. Most of the cake was just green tea mousse, which was soft and creamy and had a delicate flavour. The raspberry elements were quite small and the raspberry flavour didn’t stand out much, but it helped to break up what would otherwise be a constant green tea flavour. Overall it was nice cake that would please green tea fans.
Ani ~ This was definitely my favourite out of the cakes I tried. The flavour of it was somewhere in between a Bueno and a Ferrero Rocher. It had the perfect balance between chocolate and hazelnut, with a really pleasant combination of soft, creamy and crunchy layers. Definitely recommended!
Ani ~ The white chocolate cheesecake layer was sweet, but it was balanced out by the carrot cake and the tartness of the raspberry jam. This cake was well made and tasted fine, but it didn’t wow me as much as the others. It’s definitely worth a try though if you like carrot cake and cheesecake.
Ani ~ Le Petit Gâteau has a standard selection of cakes that they make in medium or large sizes. Some of these are available in store for you to buy straight away, but you can also order one in advance to make sure that the cake you want is available. I wanted to order a large Hazelnut Mille Feuille cake and although this isn’t one of their standard large size cakes, they were happy to make one for me since I gave them a few days notice. Very happy with the result!
Verdict: We really enjoyed these cakes and look forward to trying the rest.
