Bonnae Gokson Contributes Her Talent to Hong Kong and Receives International Recognition

Hong Kong style icon Bonnae Gokson is celebrating recognition among the world’s “top cake masters” with the unveiling of this year’s signature Christmas cake at bespoke Central cake shop Ms B's CAKERY.

Ms Gokson’s international recognition in ‘The New P√Ętissiers’ by Britain’s biggest publisher “Thames & Hudson” applauds SEVVA and Ms B's CAKERY as “world class”.  Crowned as ‘Queen of Confectionery in Asia’ by America’s wedding-event guru Colin Cowie, Ms Gokson is honoured among 38 of the world’s top confectioners and cake makers.  Following Ms Gokson’s return from New York for her new book launch world tour starting in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Manila, she is overjoyed that her work is recognized, also international media such as VOGUE Australia, VOGUE Japan, ELLE.com and the latest O - The Oprah Magazine of Oprah Winfrey in USA where she was featured.

Ms Gokson travels the world sourcing only the finest quality natural ingredients and works with chocolate and Christmas Puddings make for a special lowered sugar recipe only for her establishment.  This year, her specialty cake for the season is like a very cheerful gift-wrapped box in red, white, green and a candy stick.  Named CandiCane Joy(500g), it has checkered Apples & Cinnamon Creme Fraiche Butter Cake with Beetroot and Cacao 'Red Velvet' laced with sweet Jonathan apples puree and light buttercream.

The festive specialty is complemented by miniature Christmas Cakelettes in the same festive theme. A ‘red velvet’ combination of beetroot & cacao with cheesecake and warm spices, the cakelettes are priced at HK$70, or HK$180 for a box of three and HK$540 for a box of nine.

Back by popular demand for the delight of apple and cinnamon lovers, is the delectable Poinsettia Christmas Cake, much loved by many throughout the Christmas Seasons.  The apple-cinnamon chiffon cake, deliciously moist with Fuji apple compote & fresh cream, is available in two sizes, 500g (HK$720) and 1,000g (HK$1,200).

A decadent new treat for chocolate lovers that is also labour intensive on the cakery menu.  The seductive autumn-themed confection named SUNKISS'D charmingly combines chocolate mousse and chiffon with cocao nibs, three more surprising textures of chocolate and orange curd on a honey almond crunch base, priced HK$880 (500g) and HK$1,380 (1,000g).

This season’s festive cakes can be ordered two days in advance from Monday 25 November 2013 at Ms B’s CAKERY on 39 Gough Street, Central as well as C’est La B – Harbour City, Pacific Place and Tai Hang, which originally inspired the popularity of her homemade desserts.
