Savor heavenly mooncakes at Marina Bay Sands
Treat your tastebuds to a festive indulgence this Mid-Autumn Festival
Singapore (27 July 2012) – Marina Bay Sands is set to enchant guests this Mid-Autumn festival with its highly anticipated SweetSpot mooncakes. Apart from classic favorites that have delighted fans for the past two years, Executive Pastry Chef Ryan Witcher and his team have created a new indulgent flavor based on the King of Fruit – the D-24 Durian.
Hailed for its thick and creamy flesh, the D-24 Durian will be cocooned within a pillowy soft snow skin, lending its fragrant richness to the subtleness of the outer skin. SweetSpot’s original innovative creations, Dark Chocolate Orange and Salted Caramel Almond Crunch, are back again this year. The contrast between the silky smooth chocolate and sharp tangy orange in the Dark Chocolate Orange mooncakes is set to deliver a sweet surprise for guests. With the snowskin encasing the sweet caramel and luscious chocolate, paired with chewy almonds, the Salted Caramel Almond Crunch ensures a burst of titillating flavor with every bite.
Not forgetting guests who enjoy their traditional mooncakes, SweetSpot is also offering its popular White Lotus Seed Paste baked with either single or double egg-yolk. Fans of the traditional mooncakes will be delighted with the combination of handmade full-flavored white lotus paste, delectable yolks and golden-hued baked skin.
Preserving distinctive elements of tradition with touches of modern design, the packaging of SweetSpot mooncakes is a limited edition collector’s item for this season. With its intricately designed box which can be transformed into a functional lantern,Marina Bay Sands’ mooncake collection presents the perfect gift for loved ones and business partners during the Mid-Autumn festival.
