Celebrity-loved Vive Cake Boutique celebrates its 4th anniversary in typically whimsical fashion launching an enchanting mermaid-themed collection of bespoke cakes and mini cakes – along with an afternoon tea-set imagined from the playful depths of folklore.
The enchanting collection is unveiled from today at VIVE’s flagship boutique at fashionable lifestyle hub H Queen's at 80 Queens Road Central, with the tea-set served from today to 29 September
As with previous anniversary releases, this year’s annual flirtation with fantasy continues the playful style and trademark healthy, low-sugar tradition of founder Vivien Lau that has bewitched a devoted celebrity, socialite and social media following.
Headlining the magical instaworthy 4th anniversary treats are three whole celebratory cakes delightfully crafted after mermaids frolicking in the surf, available for any occasion.
Below the sea surface, Mermaid Squad (HK$880, 1lb) is a mermaid-themed wonderland of watercolour buttercream and Beauty in the Water (HK$780, 1lb) features VIVE’s iconic uni-cone design with a mermaid-theme. Both are available with seven different flavour options, featuring Pistachio Cake with Pistachio Buttercream; Banana Cake with Chocolate Buttercream; Hazelnut Cake with Hazelnut Buttercream; Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese; Earl Grey Cake with Earl Grey Cream Cheese; Rich Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache; and Vanilla Sponge Cake with Mango and Yuzu Mousse.
In an underwater world of shells and corals, Mer-mazing (HK$880, 1lb) is available in one luscious flavour, Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese.
An ‘early bird’ promotion offers a 15% discount on orders of the three exclusive Anniversary cakes from today to 31 August.
Tantalising samplers of the mermaid theme are mini-cakes Ocean Breeze (HK$55), an irresistible combo of vanilla sponge, strawberry mousse and raspberry rose jelly; and Under the Sea (HK$58), enticingly layering vanilla sponge with white chocolate mousse and passionfruit filling.
For a refined celebration of the “crème de la crème of Hong Kong’s bespoke dessert makers, Under the Sea Afternoon Tea Set continues the theme with an entire stand of treats designed after mini-mermaids, shellfish and starfish.
The tea-set is on special promotion from today to 29 September, from Thursday to Sunday & Public Holidays, at VIVE’s Central branch located at H Queen’s; priced HK$248 for one or HK$458 for two (subject to 10% service charge).
