Pastries for the Lunar New Year at Masse's (Berkeley)

daveena | Jan 21, 2012 02:03 PM

I went up to Masse's to find a chocolate cake for a family member's birthday and was blown away by the gorgeous pastries they made for the Lunar New Year - yuzu eclairs with pale green icing and pale pink cherry blossoms, orange chiffon rolls decorated to look like firecrackers, macarons in lychee rose, yuzu, pandan coconut, mango, and green tea flavors, green tea financiers, green tea opera cake, mango miroir torte, and more.

I of course left my phone in the car and couldn't get a picture of the full array, but I did take a pic of the yuzu eclair and mini firecracker when I got home. The eclair, which had both yuzu cream and icing, was very good. The firecracker had more mousse than cake for my taste, but the presentation was exceptional.
