Black Star Pastry, Newtown
Black Star Pastry and their famous Strawberry and Watermelon ($7.50) cake made me drool slightly. I was also very tempted to get the Raspberry Creme Brulee Tart (picture above) but instead something else caught my eye.
The Kaylea looked amazing at $7 which was about 20 cms in diameter (pictured above). It's described as Valrhona hazelnut praline with caramelised mousse in a chocolate tart. It was very rich and had lots of crunchy and mousse textures. Delicious!
I could not leave Black Star Pastry without the Strawberry and Water with Rose Scented Cream at $7.50. As I patiently waited in line; I started to wonder what flavours would soon be erupting in my mouth. It was a mush of watermelon which is sweet, cool and mushy. The cake part is spongey, sugary and light.
I also got the very rich dark chocolate pistachio ball. It was a nice change in texture to the Kaylea tart and the Strawberry and Water with Rose Scented Cream cake. Be ready for rich and amazingly sugary surprise.
It's a tiny cafe so I suggest you go take away. Delicious!
Prices: Mini-cakes are between $6 to $7.50
Location: Near Newtown station, 277 Australia St, Newtown
