What is pâtisserie?
Pâtisserie is used to describe French desserts and the pastry shops they are sold in.
French Pâtisserie differs from all others because it requires a lot of craft and extreme dedication, the desserts are elegant and delicate, and the complicated techniques require a certain level of expertise to pull off.
At Cocolico, we use that expertise and experience I have acquired as pastry chef, but twisting it to provide a plant-based alternative to all the classic pastries we know.
For custom orders, if you let us know your favourite flavours and the type of treat you are looking for then we will come up with a creative, bespoke and delicious suggestion to tickle your tastebuds.
Why have cake, when you can have a gâteau?
A gâteau, or entremets, is a celebration French cake. While cake usually consists in layers of sponge and buttercream, a gâteau will be structured with different textures and flavours: crunchiness, fluffiness, softness, balance are what makes the gâteau delicious and unique, for when you want that little extra special bit.
From chocolate and praliné to strawberries and cream, these are just some of my clients’ favourites! Each gâteau is tailored to your needs. I change the flavours, according to your preferences, and depending on the season and availability of the fruits.
We can also work within your dietary requirements (gluten-free, soya-free, nut-free).
Being specialised in French Pâtisserie, I am not trained in cake decorating, therefore I will not be able to help with any fancy cake designing, fondant and buttercream style.
Tarts are an iconic, traditional French dessert – surprisingly simple but utterly timeless.
At Cocolico, we create beautiful tarts that are customised to incorporate all your favourite flavours. Our delicious, flaky plant-based shortcrust pastry with your choice of filling are the makings of the most perfect dessert.
Tarts are also an excellent choice for those with allergies, as they can be adapted to be gluten, soy, and nut free.
Very special occasions? We can help too.
Whether it’s Easter or Christmas, your first baby’s birthday or your 40th, your wedding or your anniversary, we will create something unique and delicious that all your guests will enjoy. They won’t even believe it is vegan.
