Singapore – Inspired by the blue overalls-clad Minions, chef and artist Janice Wong teams up with Illumination and Universal Brand Development to launch a unique high tea experience at 2am: dessertbar.
Happening from 22 June to 31 July, the Minions-inspired high tea experience has been six months in the making, following the sold-out limited-edition releases of Minion Surprise Eggs and Minion Mooncakes from her eponymous confectionery brand in celebration of Easter and Mooncake Festival in 2020.
“From rounding up some of the world’s most talented pastry chefs to present the Cakes of Versailles, to specially flying in Sakura flowers from Nagoya to celebrate spring in Japan, our thematic high tea experiences have earned a reputation for being a celebratory rebuke to a dreary age of dining when most meals are hastily eaten out of takeout boxes,” shares Wong, who has personally conceptualised all eight signature high tea experiences—now in its ninth edition—at 2am: dessertbar since August 2020.“We saw how much joy the previous Minionscollaborations brought to customers of all ages, and couldn’t think of a better way or time to bring a bit of Minionsmagic back into their lives.”
Launching on Tuesday, 22 June for a six-week run every Tuesday to Sunday from 3pm to 6pm, the family-friendly high tea experience will feature a brand-new assortment of edible canapes in Minion yellow inspired by the franchise’s sweet and subversive characters, including Orange Blossom Macaroons; Kevin’s Popcorn Caramel Bon Bon; Stuart’s Lemon Tart; Vanilla Custard Mochi; Banana White Bean Snow Skin Mooncakes; Gru’s Bao and Banana Passionfruit Cake. The all-ages affair also caters to both children and the young at heart with Passionfruit and Peppermint Chocolate Paint and Crayons adding an edible craft component. Wash it all down with a frothy, blue-tinged Soda Vanilla Pop and a satisfying burp.
The Minions High Tea will be available from 22 June to 31 July 2021, every Tuesday to Sunday from 3pm to 6pm for dine-in only at 2am: dessertbar. Tickets are priced at $55 nett per adult and $40 nett per child under 12, and can be purchased on www.2amdessertbar.com from today onwards, on a first-come, first-served basis.
