These Yayoi Kusama Inspired Cakes Let You Eat Some Of Her Most Famous Pieces Of Art

Dots, pumpkins and light installations have been dominating our Instagram feeds recently. That’s right, Singaporeans are going crazy for Yayoi Kusama and for good reason – the Japanese artist is one of the most influential in the world, with works that are immediately recognisable.

Can’t get enough of Kusama and her dotty, mind-bending works? The Fullerton Hotel has come up with a Yayoi Kusama-inspired afternoon tea set that will take your love for Kusama to tasty new levels.

Five special creations inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s works

The man behind the delectable three-tier afternoon tea set is Enrico Pezzelato, the hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef.

As a fan of Kusama’s works, Chef Pezzelto wanted to stay true to her works while continuing to push boundaries through his creations as well.

If you have been to the exhibition, you will have noticed that Kusama’s work is vibrant and eye-catching. The desserts created by Chef Pezzelto are no different. Among the five creations, the most colourful (and Insta-worthy!) one is the hazelnut cream on a Breton sable with bright dots. This dessert is a tribute to Kusama’s All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever which sold for a staggering US$5.1 million.

Another highlight is the pretty strawberry shortcake resembling the painting Life is the Heart of a Rainbow. This dessert is topped with whipping cream and sandwiched between cocoa butter, printed with striations.

Served together with these inspired sweets is an array of finger sandwiches, bite-sized pastries, assorted cakes, and freshly baked scones that The Courtyard is known for. Additionally, you will also get to enjoy free-flow TWG tea or a coffee of your choice. To further sweeten the deal, there will be a live harpist on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays so you can have your tea in style!

This afternoon tea set ($43++) is available at The Courtyard from now till 31 July. So, quickly grab the chance to try it out!
