AnnTremet Cake (NYC)

Pretty pastel bijoux cakes in the West Village. 

Our experience

Just a little while ago, we were bemoaning a drought of new patisseries in NYC.  Well, be careful what you wish for!  Our favourite new patisseries this year include Lady Wong’s kuih shop, Salon Sucre’s vibrantly-hued creations, and now add AnnTremet’s exquisite mirror-glazed cakes to that list!

Located on the edge of the West Village, AnnTremet very quietly opened a few months ago.  The patisserie’s glass counter features a line-up of pastel-hued, intricately-layered “entremet” cakes from which the patisserie’s name is partly derived.  The cakes themselves are petitely-proportioned, and made in a similar mirror-glaze style as found at another new-ish patisserie, Salon Sucre.  At AnnTremet however, they are lighter in taste and texture, and also less sweet.  Pictured below are the rainbow-coloured “Lychee Apricot” (our personal favourite), the excellent tropical-infused “Pina Colada”, the rather subtle “Strawberry,” and the more earthy “Black Sesame.”  AnnTremet also bakes larger custom celebration cakes, and they are breathtaking beauties.
