Yep, another dessert post! I'm not sure if desserts cafe/bar is the trend now, but there seems to be A LOT of dessert places popping up around Klang Valley. My friends and I have also been going around trying out new desserts places, and today I like to share with you a new dessert place at Sri Petaling - Butterfly Dessert Cafe.

Butterfly Dessert Cafe has only been operating for 2 months.

Stepping into the cafe, I had only 2 words to describe the place, which is "romantic and sophisticated". Unlike many dessert cafes or bars, Butterfly Dessert Cafe mainly serves plated desserts instead of your usual cakes and pastries. With this in mind, I thought both the owners are professional pastry chefs. Little did I know, they were never professionally-trained!

There are not many places serves plating desserts around Klang Valley, and I couldn't wait to see how pretty and delicious the desserts going to be!

Orange Mango Trifle (RM 25). Layers of orange and mango mousse intertwined with sweet fresh mangoes. The jar is generously filled with aromatic fresh oranges and mangoes, and the mousse is smooth, creamy yet light. This is perfect for sharing with 2-3 friends.

Strawberry Lime (RM 18). Made with yogurt and fresh strawberries imported from Korea, the Strawberry Lime is light with a nice combination of sour-sweet from the strawberry jam.

Deconstructed Strawberry Opera (RM 28). Almond joconde, sponge cake, almond wafer crisp, strawberry cream, strawberry-coated almond, strawberry jelly, dark chocolate ganache, meringue cookies, Chantilly cream and strawberry syrup. Not just pretty looking, but I like the texture of the cake and the entire dish is not overly-sweet. I know this is an Opera, but somehow reminded me a lot of strawberry shortcake!

Chocolate Banana (RM 25). Chocolate and banana is a very classic combination, but Butterfly Dessert Cafe took it to another level by incorporating bananas and caramel chocolate Chantilly with dark chocolate ganache inside a chocolate crispy dome. I absolutely love this dessert!

Classic Opera Cake (RM 18). Opera is a very classic and commonly seen French dessert but I dare say this was my first time having really well executed Opera - chocolaty yet not too sweet with hint of nutty flavours in it.

While we were enjoying our Opera we had a chat with the owner, Lai Leng, and learnt that there are altogether 16 layers in an Opera. My friend and I tried to count all the layers, but NO LUCK! XD

Roleaf Tea (RM 9/pot). With such delicate desserts, tea is the best pairing option, and there are 6 types of tea for you to choose from.

Passionfruit Soda. Cold, fizzy and tangy Passionfruit Soda is refreshing and I like how it works as a palate cleanser, especially after all the sweet desserts.

The desserts at Butterfly Dessert Cafe are really very pretty, and can tell they have put in a lot of effort into every plate they put out. Butterfly Dessert Cafe has a really small menu, and the pricing can be considered on the high side; but if you are in the mood to splurge on desserts, why not consider Butterfly Dessert Cafe!
