Birthday cakes have undergone a sea of change over the past few years. However, a floral cake is timeless. If you have a lockdown birthday or know someone who does, Mon Choux, a venture by Baker Pushkraj Pawar specialises in baking French desserts.
Mon Choux (pronounced as mon shoo) means 'My Pastry' in French. Doing justice to French desserts that are essentially light, intricate, and creamy — this brand is known to bake some amazing French treats. We absolutely drool over their floral cakes that are made using real flowers. Not only do they taste amazing, but they also look picture-perfect.
Try out their seasonal au naturel specialty which is secretly a mango cake but has delicate hand-piped buttercream flowers on it. Similarly, we can't resist digging into the fresh fruit gateaux (cakes). We hear he has done away with refined flour, preservatives, and everything artificial but makes use of French-style butter, couverture chocolate, and natural fruits and flowers.
Satiate your sweet tooth with other bakes such as pastries, tiramisu, tea cake loaves that are available in interesting flavours such as carrot and almond crumble, coffee, honey-pistachio, choco-walnut, etc. You can also get your birthday cakes customised. Prices start at INR 480.
Place your orders 48 hours prior to any celebration. You can do so by giving them a call or sending a DM on Instagram or Facebook. You can also pick it up yourself from their Viman Nagar outlet.
