Sydney bakery Black Star Pastry, home of the Insta-famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake, is coming to Good Times Milk Bar in Bentleigh this weekend. From Friday July 23 to Sunday July 25, Good Times Milk Bar will be serving up slices of some of Black Star Pastry’s most famous cakes. Think raspberry and lychee or hojicha sponge and matcha. If you were looking for a sign to treat yourself, this is it!
What kind of cakes are there?
Good Times Milk Bar will be serving four delicious flavours at this pop-up event.
Of course, there will be The World’s Most Instagrammed Cake – otherwise known as the Strawberry Watermelon Cake. This cake was originally made for a wedding, and has now erupted into a social media sensation. Black Star Pastry estimates that over 1 million slices of this cake are served from their stores a year. Imagine a cake layered with almond dacquoise, rose-scented cream and watermelon, topped with pistachios, strawberries and dried rose petals.
If chocolate is more your thing, why don’t you grab a slice of the Chocolate Mirage Cake? Inspired by a desert sunrise, this cake has a chocolate and roasted hazelnut dacquoise base, layers of flourless chocolate sponge, dark chocolate cremeux, topped with a light chocolate mousse.
For a bit of fruit and chocolate, opt for the Raspberry Lychee Cake. You will find layers of raspberry marshmallow and rose-scented cream on top of a rich chocolate dacquoise base. To keep it bright and fresh, the top of the cake is layered with lychees and raspberries.
And finally, for a twist on European Black Forest Cake, try their Japanese Forest Cake. The sponge is made from hojicha, a roasted green tea, and it is garnished with matcha moss and dark chocolate leaves and bark.
