Macarons and Swiss Roll - City Square, Johor Bahru

I headed to Malaysia over the weekend and bought some pastries from the different shops.

First up - French Macarons from Lavender Bakery.


Macaroons at RM $4 each. I got a box of 3 for RM $12. (Around SGD $1.60 for a macaron slightly cheaper than the ones sold locally) 

These sugar babies were packed in a convenient drawer style box.


From top to bottom: Matcha, Citron, Earl Grey.




Matcha Macaron. - It is great that it has a rich Matcha flavour without the bitterness at all. I love how all the macarons have a thin sugar crust and is soft and chewy on the inside. It is like eating a sugar cookie and candy at the same time. 


Earl Grey Macaron. My favourite among the 3 flavours. If you love anything earl grey, this is one not to be missed. Very rich earl grey taste that lingers in your mouth.



Citron Macaron. This one is lemon flavoured. It tasted like those lemon essence from the baking store so I'm not really fond of  it. 

I think the macarons tasted fantastic but there is just one downside to it - they all got air bubbles. (Hollow in the middle) I'm not sure if it was just the batches of macarons that day but it will be perfect if there weren't air bubbles!

Next up Mika Swiss Roll. They got a ton of flavors but I chose:



Raspberry Swiss Roll - RM 13.90


The other end looks neater but I wanna take a close up of the nice thick Raspberry cream.


I love the sponge cake, Super soft and fluffy.


Spiralling cream in the middle of the cake. The cream has a very rich raspberry taste with raspberry seeds in it. 

I like how the sweetness level is just right. I can finish the entire swiss roll for dessert.
