If you've been on Instagram lately, there's a good chance you've seen these adorable cookie puffs floating around your feed.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of popping into Doux Amour Patisserie in Roseberry to visit Kevin & Carol, and of course the Animal Puff Family! Fellow cream puff lovers, brace yourselves.

Introducing (from L to R): Nutty the Nutella Bear, Blackie the Black Sesame Penguin, Macho the Green Tea Turtle & Rosie the Rose-and-Lychee Pig. 

Upon walking in, I was greeted with gorgeous interiors - sort of a mix & match between refurbished industrial vibes and a softer fairy garden flair. Perfectly Instagrammable of course ;) The place filled up quickly - so I would recommend going early on the weekend to ensure minimal wait time. 

As for the puffs themselves, the choux pastry was light and lovely with a unique cookie crumb on top. What I really loved, though, was the strong flavour hit from each puff. If you're after Green Tea, oh you will most certainly get Green Tea. My favourite was Rosie the Rose-and-Lychee Pig - which really didn't come as a surprise, what with my lychee obsession. The hit of rosewater made it very much reminiscent of BSP's famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake - and you can't really go wrong from there!

Overall, I'd definitely recommend a visit. Go with a bunch of girlfriends so you can try one of everything (I promise I didn't have all four by myself. Promise!), or go for a super cute date! It's well worth the trip and a whole heap of fun. Don't forget your camera and maybe pick up a few extra as a surprise gift for family or friends (or me...)!
