Gift of Fragrance @Häagen-Dazs
Häagen-Dazs is releasing a collection of ice-cream cakes to celebrate Mother’s Day this week. Look out for one of their cakes, Gift of Fragrance, at first glance, you’ll see a Mon Guerlain-like perfume bottle sitting on an opened perfume box… but if you look closely, you’ll realise that the whole thing is edible. The perfume box, the perfume itself, in fact the whole cake is made up of strawberry ice-cream. We also recommend the Rose Whisper that comes with a filling of vanilla and sweet red bean paste (azuki). Cityplaza, 18 Tai Koo Shing Rd, Quarry Bay, 2568 8665; cityplaza.com
