Making Memories at Marisse Patisserie

Marisse Patisserie Cebu
Upon learning that Miss Charen will soon grace us with sayonara, I immediately thought of an initiative for us to meet one last time. Miss Charen is one of my co-workers when I used to work in the media, right after I took a break from the academe.

She's one of the most down-to-earth and hands down, one of the most passionate people I ever met. Witnessing her dedication to work, and how she looks at life makes me feel more empowered. Though it saddens me to say goodbye to her, I am more than happy for her and I can only wish her all the best that Japan has to offer. Yes, the madam is going to Japan. hehe >.<

To wish her some luck, a colleague and I bought her a cute neko figurine. The cat decor has a bell on it, so when we gave miss Charen our gift, we told her that if there's something that her heart desires, all she needs to do is to ring the bell and whisper her wish. lelz Don't belittle her lucky charm because it did the charm a few hours after we gave it to her! haha

I wanted to see Miss Charen for the last in a wonderful place so invited her for an afternoon soiree along with our two other previous colleagues, Miss Joy and Miss Camille. I recently heard of an amiable patisserie within Cebu named Marisse Patisserie. I haven't been visited the place prior to our afternoon affair, so I just fervently prayed that the place would not disappoint, and fortunately, it didn't.

The patisserie offers a visual feast of grand cakes, tempting cookies, savory prepared foods, and various breads to enjoy. Coupled with its shabby chic interiors, the place is enough to make anybody's dainty dream come to life.

Your visit in Marisse won't be complete without trying their delectable offerings. Here are some of the treats that we've ordered:
Marisse Patisserie Cebu
 Pappy's Banana Guava Cake

I wanted to try something different so I chose the banana guava cake that Marisse offers. The cake gave us so much emotions which fill our hearts with laughter as we try to answer the question: who is Pappy?

haha A very important question and we had the craziest possible answers. It was only last night when I found out that it was inspired by the owner's father (Pappy) who, according to Marisse official website loves to eat a banana treat with guava filling.

I love how soft the cake is and I like the fact that Marisse has taken some twist with the regular banana cake without turning it into something boring. Adding a guava filling into the cake made it a little bit more interesting. What I'm trying to say is that they didn't pull off a twist on it for the sake of being weird. The cake itself tastes good though the four of us agreed that the guava flavor is barely there. There were times when we throw questions at each other looking for a distinct guava taste. lol

 Chocolate Dacquoise

We used to have culinary and baking classes in high school, but I've never heard of dacquoise within my years of study. It was only when I visited Marisse that I was able to know what it is and how it taste like. And though,I know that it has a French origin (judging from its spelling), I wasn't quite sure on how the word mus be pronounced. Luckily, Miss Charen is to the rescue! haha so dacquoise is pronounced as da-kwaz and by definition, it is a dessert consisting of baked layers of nut-flavored meringue with a cream filling, sometimes with the addition of fruit, served chilled.

Among the four cakes that we've ordered, the dacquoise is the softest and the fluffiest one. It can easily glide in your tongue in similar way a Shakespearean sonnet can enter your heart.

 Red Velvet Cake

Anything classic is also a good idea be it a bag, a fashion accessory or a slice of cake! Marisse' classic take on a red velvet cake didn't left us disappointed. It has the right amount of moist, richness and sweetness. We couldn't ask for more right after tasting the cake!

 Matcha Sans Rival Cake

Matcha for me is a flavor created by the gods. The moment I saw matcha variations on Marisse's menu, I immediately had my eyes on their matcha sans rival cake. What happens when you combine matcha with sans rival is a match made in heaven. The juxtaposition of matcha's bitterness and sans rival's sweetness created a distinct taste that captured my soul.

At frist I was a bit hesitant to try it having tasted some variations of Sans Rival. Though Sans Rival is a beloved dessert, I find some of its variations too sweet for my liking. Surprisingly, what Marisse' has has the right amount of sugar. The added nuts on the cake made the dessert's texture more interesting in every bite.

We were wondering what animal is in their latte art, whether it's a dog or from Miss Joy's perspective, a pig. hahaha

We opted for a regular caffe americano and tea to match our delightful desserts.

From their picturesque interiors to their impressive collection of hearth-baked foods, there's nothing that I did not love about Marisse Patisserie. You may check their menu ahead online should you wish to save time upon your visit. Their service, including their bathrooms, which I am quite particular about also didn't make us feel brokenhearted. I am ecstatic that my co-workers and I had the wonderful time together before bidding farewell to Miss Charen.

Just as I did, you can also spend your precious time at Marisse Patisserie. The dainty place is located at 32 Sanson Road at the Rockwell, Cebu City. You may ring them a bell at 0917 708 3853 | (032) 406 3099, should you have any questions or visit their official Facebook account. The patisserie operates during Friday & Saturday - 8am-11pm | Tues-Thurs and Sunday 8am-10pm. It is closed on Mondays.

love lots,
Tin
