VVG Bon Bon. This fairytale-come-true escape is a resplendent medley of rose petal-adorned sweets, jars and jars of marshmallows, soft pink walls, sparkling chandeliers, oversized armchairs with furry pillows. So ornate, so rococo, so…Marie Antoinette?

Grass-green oversized armchair with furry pillows, multi-colored wooden table, fresh roses and chrysanthemums…Sparkling chandeliers, nutcracker dolls, jars of pink marshmallows and cookies and candies…

And of course, the cupcakes.

Here’s my favorite, the raspberry cupcake with rose jam and lychee cream (80 NTD), an elegant harmony of sour high notes from the raspberry, floral undertone of the rose jam, and fragrant fruitiness of the lychee cream.

The strawberry cupcake with strawberry cream cheese and rhubarb strawberry jam was also lovely. Rhubarb, which added a sour touch to the sweetness of the cake and the frosting, was really what made the cupcake sing. And that little white chocolate dress hugging the strawberry! Just too cute.

Walnut and sour cream cake with whisky cream (80 NTD). 

The lemon tea (180 NTD) was too sweet to be paired with the cipcakes, but the tea pot is just adorable.

La vie en rose, oui oui.
