Delectable Treats by Su, Pavilion KL: No Tricks, Only Treats.

Delectable Treats by Su_1.jpg

I know it is cliche to say how quickly the year is coming to an end, but that’s the truth. 2010 has swift by in the quickest manner and memories of what has happened in the year seems blurry to me now. I can’t recall much before October. Thankfully I have this blog to look back and remind me that I actually do have  a life outside work.

Speaking of hard workers (I’m glad I’m not the only one in this rut), I’m sure Su of Delectable feels the same about the year of the tiger too. After a year of building a name for her physical store in The Gardens and charming her way into our hearts with her line of cupcakes and other goodies, Su took the plunge and launched her second venture in Pavilion KL. On top of that, orders for her exquisitely made-to-order designer cake have been flourishing to a point that I hardly get to see her sunshine smile for lunch or coffee anymore these days. Lets not even mention the playdate, which I have a feeling isn’t happening anytime this year. Bah!

OK I’ll cut her some slack now. We did finally manage to meet one afternoon recently. The thing is we both happened to be in the same mall that day. She even gave me a private tour of her new shop. This was actually a good thing as I missed my chance to do that or hobnob with celebrities at its opening party. I was busy attending my own birthday party then.

Honestly, Delectable Treats as a shop isn’t much compared to her cake studio at the Gardens. Despite a smaller presence the store is pack with its own punches. Just to differentiate the two shops, Delectable cake studio concentrates on designer cakes, and Delectable Treats concentrates on its namesake: treats! Here you will find every shelves and nook stock with her trademark cupcakes and merry men cookies, while adding a whole new repertoire of new goodies like chilled layered desserts, multiple tiered cakes, loafs of layer cakes, chocolate cakes and cheese cakes. My favourite new thing has to be the Oatmeal & Raisin cookies which comes a Delectable blue tin with an air-tight lid! There’s even jars of Happinuts on sale.

Her new concept store also sells other non-food items like aprons printed in the trademarked Delectable yellow strips, cute jelly purses with specially made pins of characters like Lulu and Teddy. Makes perfect stocking stuffers don’t you think? Specially created Christmas gift sets are also available, that comes in a Yellow Tin Bake ware set (pink whisk, gingerbread and Xmas tree cake mould) with matching Delectable apron and mitten.

Delectable Treats is in fact a dream come true for the bubbly Su, whose world is often filled with rainbows and butterflies (with the occasional rain and floods too). She once dreamed of a place where she could make everyone happy with goodies from her family’s kitchen and a host of sweet treats. And here she is now, making and selling items which she has grown up with and things she has invented to feed her housemates back in Sydney. Makes me wonder what life might have been if I have met her during her Uni days.

I know, I’ll be A-Damn-Fat-Monkey.

Actually, being her friend these days isn’t all that bad either. In fact, it is a real Treat. She often shares her favourite new discoveries in a mall with me (like ChaTime bubble tea and Brotzeit, but that’s story for another time) and we go off in search of many benda bodohs together. These little pockets of adventures with little-miss-sunshine here always bring out the little kid in me.

    I went to her launch the other day at Pavilion, and she was still in her most bubbly self.
    Okay, i'll try to emulate what you've done and visit Delectables again.
