The strawberry watermelon cake, is the one reason there’s always a long line outside of Black Star Pastry in Newtown. If you’re after a spacious dining area, visit the one in Rosebery. However if you’re after what seems to be an unlimited supply of these slices, head to Newtown instead!
This is definitely one of the nicest cakes I’ve ever tried. It’s not just the rose scented cream that makes it delicious, it’s the fact that it’s so fresh and light. In addition, it doesn’t feel fattening either. Usually after a slice of cake you’d feel so guilty but for this one, I don’t even regret it for 1 split second.
So there’s 2 layers of almond dacquoise, fresh whipped cream with a rose scent to it, watermelon, strawberries, Iranian pistachios and rose petals. As noted by the website, this cake is also gluten free! If you want to store some for your family or friends, be sure to keep it in the refrigerator to keep it cool.
If there’s a special occasion coming up or you simply can’t get enough, you can visit the website for prices on the different cake sizes they offer and how to order one. These range from 4 ($26) to 40 slices ($195)!
As if looking at this doesn’t make you salivate! If you have yet to have a taste, do go asap! It’s definitely worth the $7.50 you pay for 1 slice!
