Fat macarons, aka fatcarons, were popularised by the Koreans where the macaron shells are stuffed with extra filling to achieve a chubby look. If you haven't had the chance to try this trending dessert, now's the perfect time as there is a new dessert boutique in Singapore serving Korean-style fatcarons, cakes and cookies.
HaengBokCakeYo is a new Korean dessert boutique by Serena, the owner and baker behind Nanatang's famous fatcarons. The boutique's name is a play on the Korean words "행복해요" (haeng bok hae yo) which means "happiness" in English, in hopes of bringing customers joy with every bite of their desserts.
