Slideshow: Ask A Pastry Chef: Cyril Dupuis's Afternoon Tea at the InterContinental Hong Kong

Afternoon Tea Set
Afternoon Tea Set

InterContinental Hong Kong's afternoon tea service is legendary and it's easy to see why. Warm scones and Mariage Frères teas are served alongside an ever changing collection of Cyril's favorite sweets. That includes tarts, macarons, puff pastries, and whimsical cakes—all miniaturized. Just right for the indecisive.

Milk Chocolate Mocha Cake

Thin, crackly layers of crisp meringue and feuilletine come layered with the softest milk chocolate cake and a tower of fluffy mocha mousse that borders on whipped cream. Sink your fork in from top to bottom to get a bite of everything at once.
Lemon Cheesecake
Lemon Cheesecake
One of those whisper light, easy-melting cheesecakes that are anything but dense and rich. The citrus flavors are generous with lemon coming in the lead, followed by tangerines. A buttery crushed cookie crust gives the cheesecake a fine finish.
Ispahan Cake

If you're only going to order one dessert off the menu, make it Cyril's Ispahan Cake. The three main flavors of Isphan—raspberry, lychee and rose—are delivered in the form of a coconut biscuit base layered with sweet rose petal cream and lychee mousse dotted in vanilla beans.
