The Dessert Museum's Sugary Arrival
Sweet and slick: The Dessert Museum is Asia's first eat-as-you-play museum where you can enter through a slide
Scrumptious, tasty, and oh so delectable! Pastries and desserts have crowded our fantasies for the shortest moments of boredom and delay. Our childhood reveries filled with wonderlands of ginormous confections, all beyond reach, until today.
The arrival of The Dessert Museum, Asia’s first-ever eat-and-play museum, welcomed sweet-tooths for a taste of pleasure, to their 8 rooms replete with doughnuts, marshmallows, cotton candy, peppermint, cake pops, ice cream, bubblegum, and gummy bears, with a satisfying grand launch in S'Maison Mall on February 3, 2018.

VVIPs, top influencers, and members of the media promptly arrived at the venue to get a glimpse of the much-awaited sweet sensation. Pastel tables adorned the room for that candied touch, and a cotton candy cart was a show-stopper, conjuring characters from unicorns to flowers out of brightly colored floss.
A table housing an elegant display of pasta and refreshments glowed for that savory contrast before plunging into endless succulence. Topping it all off was a golden carriage by Aperitif PH with pastry concoctions, sophisticatedly designed as a treat for all senses.

The launch revolved around the theme “LolliPop! Bring Out Your True Color!” as a testament to Millennial Pop Culture and its marriage to our childlike wonder.
The event began with warm greetings made by the ever bubbly Janeena Chan, animatingly engaging the crowd. To formally welcome the guests, Nikko Joseph Que, founding partner of The Dessert Museum, took the stage to deliver his opening speech.

Afterwards, the invitees’ sweet-tastic journey had commenced. Batch by batch, they slid through the sweet-tastic doughnut room, entering a continuously unfolding delicious experience.
