Black Star Pastry - Rosebery, Sydney

by - 5:45 PM

Finally I have a proper cake hunting after more than a month since my last cafe hopping in Maroubra and Chatswood. At the first time I came to Sydney, I did some research regarding dessert parlour and coffee shop in this area and some of my friends recommended this place, Black Star Pastry.

There are 3 Black Star Pastry store in Sydney CBD, Newtown and Rosebery. Well, because it quite hard to find parking lot in the city and Newtown is to far from eastern suburb, me and my friend Linda decided to visit their Store in Rosebery. The exterior of the store is clean and minimalist with black and white dominant colors, while inside you will feel rustic ambiance.  

oww pretty pretty cakeeee :3

Now let's try the cake

I picked the famous Strawberry Watermelon cake slice with almond dacquoise, rose-scented cream, pistachios and dried rose petals, meanwhile Linda picked mini Orange cake with persian figs, cranberries, pistachios, rose petals and candied coriander. 

It was my first time eating a cake with dried petals on it, well I used to drink tea with flower flavors like Camomile or Roselia but this one is totally different. This cake was so light and those fruits were so fresh. There are slices of watermelon in cake layer which is surprised me and it balanced the cake sweetness really well. Meanwhile the Orange cake was just okay, well I like the moist and the cake consistency but somehow I didn't like the after taste in my tongue, it was a little bit bitter.

Too bad I didn't try their quiches and pies, some of the reviewer in on of restaurant finder said that they were great and really worth to try. Well, there always next time, right? on my next visit I will try their Quiches and Pies :)

Overall I like my Strawberry Watermelon cake is worth to try because it uniqueness (have to try another cakes too), but It was quite pricey for me (Mini Orange cake A$4.5 and Strawberry Watermelon cake A$7.5) 

**This Strawberry Watermelon is created using Halal gelatin (I really like it when cake shop really open to customer with their ingredients) you can check it here
