A professional cake decorator demonstrates how to make Italian meringue buttercream frosting, then lets students slather their own ready-made sponge cake. Students learn how to pipe roses onto the cake and then bring it home to share with friends and family after class.
If it weren't for the artistry of the cakes and pastries at Ruelo Patisserie, you'd think the bakery was ruled by the scientific method. That's because detailed cake specs carefully delineate the composition of 19 of the bakery's tasty creations. For instance, taking a look at the illustrated chart, the five-layer hazelnut cake starts with a base of hazelnut dacquoise. Next, the bakers layer crispy praline on top, followed by strata of hazelnut and milk-chocolate mousse topped with a final layer of cocoa powder. Customers can order these cakes in multiple sizes, feeding intimate gatherings and bigger parties filled with hungrier, more demanding guests.
The patisserie also offers customized creations—brides- and grooms-to-be need only think up the wedding cake of their dreams, and the bakers will make it a reality with elegant tiers of fondant and flowers. They also prepare macarons in familiar flavors such as raspberry and vanilla, as well as more exotic flavors such as yuzu (Japanese lime) and balsamic vinegar. Customers can stop in to sample the baked goods or enjoy a full afternoon tea. And for the cake-curious, Ruelo offers cake-making and decorating classes that pass along some of the bakers' wisdom.
Tips from Groupon Customers
“Neat and good place for friends chatting. Just a few tables, so that not too noisy. Tea and pastry not bad. Good to try with Groupon price :)”
“First time at the McNicoll location, only one waitress serving all tables coupled with level of hungry-ness, it felt like a very long wait...food was good though.”
“Food was great- great variety and so tasty. Atmosphere not warm and comfortable- needs some TLC.”
