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!
A Chocolate Mirage from 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.
