#1 Pulse Patisserie
Founded in 2015 and known for its entremet (multi-layered mousse-based cakes) cakes, Pulse Patisserie has recently added a guo da li set to its arsenal of wedding confections.
"We have done wedding gifts before, but it was only recently that we realised that there's still a steady, growing demand for Guo Da Li. Most couples, or even parents of the couple, are looking into modern interpretations of betrothal gifts. Our version focuses on miniature cake pieces called Petit Fours, which are intricately crafted bite-sized morsels. The mainstays of modern weddings, which are either floral, fruity or chocolate-based flavours, remain crowd favourites.The Ispahan (Raspberry, Lychee & Rose) is always in demand. Our Earl Grey-Lavender chocolate is also quite popular among our customers.
