S-W-E-E-T

When I was but a wee child, growing up the 4th born of 1st generation immigrants from a country where currency was a third, there wasn't any money for the non-essentials...

So whenever out with my far more well off cousins who always managed to leave the shop with the latest in fandangly toys, I might have gotten a tube of minties.

In this way, my (unfortunate) sweet tooth was born...



Since I should have been in one of this country's foremost epicurean regions since it's a long weekend (but I'm not due to the usual pressing deadlines of adult responsibility :P) I'm posting a pic from my last visit to a foodie region...what is likely THE BEST patisserie I have had in this country! Everything we tried was totally delectable.

In the pic you see a Fruit Tart, Baked Boysenberry Cheesecake and a Thai coconut cake. Guess which one I had?!

All this goodness- Z's taste test guaranteed- can be found at Choux Choux Patisserie in the olde worlde charm of Bangalow- a beautiful town a.k.a 'The Woollahra of the Shire" LOL.

Cheers to Good Eating and Drinking!

Had fun today, sorry you couldnt come :) I still don't know the difference between wines, but I had enough to enjoy the effects :)

Mmmmm, looks so good. Funny you have the thai coconut cake pictured b/c I made some a few weeks ago, froze half, and defrosted it yesterday to eat. I'm sure the one you had was MUCH better! Guess? If there was something with chocolate I'd guess that but this is a tough one. I'm going w/ the coconut cake.

I would've gone with the Cheesecake... mmm...

KB...you're right!! I DID go with the thai coconut cake- only cos I had never seen or heard of one before and had to try "something new"!

Jonno...good choice-this was my favourite taste wise of the three...but they were all....amazing :)

p.s KB you so need to stop noticing all these "synchronicities"! LOL

I never heard of the cake before either. The one I made was baked, I heard traditional ones are steamed.

I don't think I'll ever stop being weirded out w/ the synchronicities.

I would have eaten them all...mostly due to my total lack of self control and will power. You should see the piles of chocolate I brought back from vacation. I even surprised myself this time!
