Japan has just announced the official start of its cherry blossom season for 2021, which has come early this year...and here we are, stuck in Singapore for the nth month in a row. While the closest we can get to an actual hanami session is with Gardens by the Bay’s Hello Kitty-themed Sakura Matsuri, that’s not where the sakura-themed fun in Singapore ends.
BreadTalk Singapore has just launched 9 new limited edition Blooming In Pink pastries, and among them are a couple of sakura-flavoured buns and cakes. The others come with strawberry and rose flavours, which are also well-loved by Singaporeans.
Speaking of which, check out our article on 2am:dessertbar’s Sakura Strawberry High Tea!

#1: Strawberry Light Cheesecake ($12.80)
Have a taste of Japan with this fluffy Strawberry Light Cheesecake ($12.80), which comes dusted with “pink snow powder”, aka icing sugar that forms sakura petal patterns on the surface.
#2: Sakura Anpan ($2)
The traditional red bean bun gets a little twist with this Sakura Anpan bun ($2). Other than the powdered sugar cherry blossom design on top, this confection comes with a sweet sakura red bean filling in the middle.

#5: Rolling in Pink ($8.80)
If a whole cake is too much, go for Rolling in Pink ($8.80) instead - a simple angel cake swiss roll with strawberries and buttercream.

#9: Rose Butter Cookie ($12.80)
