My dessert favourites 

I’ve been eating way too many sweet things lately, I’m trying to convince myself that I deserve to eat them. I blame stress for making me eat sweets. Lol

Here are 7 of my current dessert favourites, that you must try :

1. Chocolate chip cookie from Fossix Coffee

I discovered this place after blogger Simon posted some photos of the cafe. The chocolate chip cookie from Fossix Coffee is seriously what dreams are made of, they use so much callebaut chocolate, the cookie is crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I really do think this chocolate chip cookie is the best that I’ve eaten in the Sydney CBD. 

2. Strawberries and cream sponge cake from The Grounds of the city

The strawberries and cream sponge cake at The Grounds of the city is seriously what I’ve been craving since falling in love with the sponge cake at Gumnut Patisserie. I have been obsessing over sponge cake for so long and I was over joyed to find a good one in the Sydney CBD. The sponge cake is so fluffy and moist, the cream filling is real fresh cream and the strawberries are divine. Heavenly! 

3. Ultimate chocolate cake from Zokoko

I’ve been a huge fan of Zokoko for such a long time and I still love their ultimate chocolate cake, it never disappoints. The ultimate chocolate cake is dense, moist and chocolately, the use of Zokoko chocolate makes it perfect. I don’t think I’ve ever had a chocolate that tastes better than this. 

4. Australian sea salt and honey crueller from Shortstop Coffee and donuts

What’s not to love about this sweet and salty combination ? The crueller is crispy yet chewy and it tastes like a Chinese fried donut. The balance of the sweet and salty flavours is perfect. I’ve really fallen in love with Shortstop’s donuts, more so now that I’ve found some favourites. The maple walnut donut is my other favourite.

5. Ferrero Roche croissant from Top Impression Bakery

 I really love a good pain au chocolat, this croissant was next level of amazement. The croissant was flaky and buttery and the amount of chocolate ganache filling was insane! I was actually defeated by this croissant, I couldn’t eat it all. 

6. Buttered toast donut from Grumpy Donuts and Butterbing cookie sandwich from Butterbing

Even though I’ve tried virtually every flavour of donut from Grumpy Donuts, I still love their buttered toast donut. A donut with delicious brown butter frosting and brioche crumbs, a very delicious combination. 

7. Lamingtons from Jillian’s Cakery

I love the lamingtons from Jillian’s Cakery, their lamingtons are not overly sweet and the lamingtons are so moist. Their lamingtons are definitely my favourite. 

Honourable mention go to Lexie’s cheesecake, but sadly they’ve since closed down.

Allen’s green frogs are back!!

Yes, you read right, Allen’s green frogs are back and they’ve brought along some orange and yellow friends too. 

With the high demand from lovers of Allen’s green frogs,  Allen’s have finally decided to make their green frogs again and seriously I couldn’t be any happier. 

Allen’s have now released a variety of flavoured frogs in a new packaging variety called “Frog Family” , these include red, green, orange and yellow frogs. 

This morning I rushed off to Coles Supermarket and bought every packet off the shelf, I decided to stock up before everyone else buys them all. 

I am in heaven now!

Run, don’t walk to Coles and IGA NOW!!!!! 

Best sponge cake ever at Grounds In The City! 

Just a small PSA to tell you all that Grounds In The City sells the best sponge cake ever, it is even better than my favourite from Gumnut Patisserie! 

Today I went to Town Hall for a walk and I decided to go visit Grounds In The City, I knew it existed, but I kept forgetting to go visit. The place looked amazing from the outside. 

As I had such a little amount of time to spare this morning, I decided to make a beeline for the cake cabinet.  In the cabinet there were so many different types of cake, I decided to buy a slice of strawberries and cream sponge cake because it’s my favourite. 

Cake slices cost $9 a slice and they slice it fresh for you, the slice that I bought was HUGE, it was so big that I had to share it with my friend. 

My friend decided to eat the cake straight away, the strawberries and cream sponge cake tasted so amazing, the sponge cake part was firm, but soft and fluffy, the cream filling was made with real fresh cream and was so delicious. The strawberries and cream sponge cake was heaven in each mouthful, I may have accidentally screamed “omg” whilst eating it in the office. Oops.. 😳

There are so many other cakes for me to buy at Grounds In The City, I really do want to buy them all. Shame that I’m supposed to be on a diet.. hmmm. 

Grounds In The City is located at:

The Galeries of Victoria (on the same level as Jimmy’s).
