Black Star Pastry, Sydney

Australia‘s Black Star Pastry first caught my attention with their Glonuts aka Glow-in-the-dark doughnut.  While the idea of eating something covered in artificial ingredients didn’t sit well with me at first, I was glad to know that the doughnuts’ icing is a yuzu glaze that gets its glow from vitamin B, which is often used to create glow-in-the-dark food. Sadly it was a limited period product created for the Sydney‘s Vivid festival in 2017.

Little did I know that the pastry’s most famous creation is the Strawberry Watermelon Cake, dubbed the most Instagrammed cake in the World. We drove to the Newtown outlet to find a long snaking queue outside the shop along the otherwise quiet street.

As expected, almost everyone in the queue were there to grab THE cake. Good to see that there were enough of it left in the display cabinet for me!

Here’s a close-up shot of the diva – comprising two layers of almond dacquoise (a sort of meringue), rose-scented cream, watermelon and strawberries, garnished with pistachios and dried rose petals.

The Chef had found the magical combination that made this cake so amazingly addictive – from the refreshing taste to its charming looks, no wonder it made headlines on Instagram.  I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase the whole cake home if it’s sold in Singapore. I think it would be quite a challenge to buy and bring this delicate cake back on a 6 hours flight…unlike how we could bring back LeTao frozen cheesecakes from Japan conveniently.

Headed to Bondi Beach to take in the views before the crowd comes in. Heard many people commented that the beach will be extremely packed later and they were there this early so as to “chope” a spot first. You can easily google “Crowded Bondi Beach” to see how every inch of the beach will be filled up and people looked in an army of ants swarming over sugar Ant on Apple iOS 12.2 Ant on Apple iOS 12.2 Ant on Apple iOS 12.2

An iconic spot at Bondi Beach area – Bondi Icebergs Club with a large ocean pool at the edge.

Next to Bondi Icebergs Club is a coastal walk trail that leads to Bronte Beach with fantastic views.

Further up North of Bondi Beach is an other stretch of coastal cliffs easily accessible by car and with no crowd.
