3 absolute decadent desserts from our fav local bakeries

As tomorrow (October 14th) is National Dessert Day, we thought you might need some sweet ideas to celebrate properly.
Here are 3 ideas for you to indulge in decadent and delicious desserts made by local Sydney bakeries or shops. But what’s great is you can also order them online!

An eclairzilla from Madame & Yves


No wonder Madame & Yves took their name from Adam & Eve, as their pastries come straight from heaven!
Yves Scherrer, the pastry chef was coach of the 2019 Australian Team in the World Pastry Cup. He is a classically trained French pastry chef with an unstoppable modern sensibility. He’s been at it, all over the world, for the past 20 years, and is dedicated to the art of pastry. Everything in his shop is made by hand, designed with the best ingredients that are sourced with care.

The “Eclairzilla” is everything it sounds like: a monster of a tasty eclair measuring nearly half a meter! The flavour  changes every other week, but it’s always a really creative, fun treat to share with friends and family. To order the monster, visit their shop in Clovelly or order online.

A Canelé from Sacrebleu!

Founded by a French couple, Adrien and Cecile, Sacrebleu! is dedicated to offering the most iconic and authentic French little treats (canelés, madeleines, meringues, palets bretons …), all baked in the most traditional way in their commercial kitchen in Rozelle (NSW).
Sacrebleu! highlight is definitely the canelé! With its crunchy and caramelised outer shell and soft inner custardy crumb, this cake from Bordeaux is a true delight. Their original Canelé, made with Organic Vanilla and Rum was awarded a GOLD Medal at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show in 2019 but Sacrebleu! has also developed a full range of flavors (Orange, Dark Chocolate Ganache, Salted Caramel,…)
And for those who think BIG, they have created the Majestic Canelé to be shared with 4 people, which is a giant version of their original Rum and Vanilla Canelé.
They use natural ingredients, organic when possible, free range eggs and try to minimise their impact on the environment everywhere they can.
You can find them online at www.sacrebleu.com.au or at the week-end markets all around Sydney (Kirribilli, Bondi, Paddington, Willoughby, Tramsheds)

A Chocolate Mirage from Black Star Pastry

Sydneys Tables - Black star pastry

The Chocolate mirage is the latest cake of the Black Star family. It’s been unveiled last week and is considered the most decadent cake by Black Star Pastry. Inspired by a desert sunrise, it consists of:
– Chocolate and roasted hazelnut dacquoise base
– Salted caramel chocolate mixed with puffed cacao rice streusel
– Flourless chocolate sponge
– Dark chocolate cremeux made from Manjari chocolate (single-origin cacao bean from Madagascar), infused with Rooibos
– Another layer of flourless chocolate sponge
– Topped with a light, Manjari chocolate mousse

The mousse is dusted with dark chocolate and contoured to create the effect of windswept dunes. A dark chocolate wave mimics a distant mirage simmering under a gold brushed, passionfruit chocolate ‘sun’ rising from the dunes. And surprisingly, this cake is also gluten-free!

Single slices start at $10, while celebration sizes from four to 40 portions can be pre-ordered online. It is available in all shops in Sydney, including Rosebery and Sydney CBD that will reopen on October 19th.
