Celebrated patisserie, Vive Cake Boutique, welcomes the summer season with the introduction of a whimsical and creative line of summer drinks and artistic sweet treats .
“We are delighted to launch this refreshing summer menu of drinks and cakes embracing the playful colours, flavours, and vibe of the sunny season,” shares Founder, Ms Vivien Lau. “Our guests are invited to delve into VIVE’s summer wonderland through their senses.”
Inspired by the look-feel of classic summer, VIVE’s line of summer cakes embody the lighthearted emblems of the season. Flamingo Floatie (HK$55), a pink treat designed to emulate a flamingo-style floater, is made with vanilla sponge, jasmine jelly, and oolong chocolate mousse; light yet satisfying flavours.
The heat of summer is depicted in the cute Mini-Cone (HK$58), a mini version of VIVE’s signature uni-cone cake, featuring an upside-down “ice-cream” cone which appears to have perfectly “fallen” on the plate. Easy on the eyes with its pink scoop of ice cream and golden-coloured cone, the cake is made with vanilla sponge, mango compote and yuzu mousse.
Ice pop fans will love Limesicle (HK$55), a vanilla sponge cake with lime jelly filling coated in yogurt mousse, and pink coloured white chocolate glaze, with sprinkles, emulating a “drip”.
For something truly unique, the insta-worthy Coco-Aloha (HK$58) is unbeatable. Presented as a “coconut shell” drink with a small golden straw, the vanilla sponge cake with pineapple filling and coconut mousse looks real enough to drink.
Guests are also invited to enjoy VIVE’s twist on a “slushie” with Pineapple Slushie (HK$65), a refreshing pineapple drink, featuring chunks of pineapple, presented in a classy whisky tumbler. The citrusy drink is topped off with a sprig of mint, lending it a sophisticated mocktail feel.
For a fun, playful, and Instagrammable drink, diners may opt for VIVE’s Watermelon Mojito (HK$68). Made with fresh watermelon, mint, and lime, the cooling beverage is presented with a wedge of watermelon on a popsicle stick.
Add a little bit of sparkle to one’s day with Grapefruit and Lime Soda(HK$65), a zesty, bubbly summer drink made from grapefruit puree, lime, andsoda water.
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’, cupcakes, macarons, cookies, confectioneries and tailor-made cakes for weddings and special occasions, are all made from scratch with less sugar and finest ingredients sourced from all over the world.
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, Miki Yeung, Ella Koon, Myolie Wu and more.
