EAT CAKE

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Delicious On Sunday -

Great cake is not an im­pulse – it is a care­ful act that is al­most spir­i­tual whether you are bak­ing or eat­ing it. So this week, don’t just eat cake. Eat great cake, like beet­root-tinted red vel­vet but­ter­fly cakes at Jocelyn Han­cock’s Cake & Bake in Bris­bane’s West End. In Mel­bourne, try Philippa Si­b­ley’s lemon tart for dessert at Syra­cuse, or any­thing from Alice Wright’s mod­ern Parisian patis­serie counter at Mill­stone cafe in Malvern. Plan ahead in Syd­ney and com­mis­sion one of Andy Bowdy’s amaz­ing cakes that es­chew fon­dant in favour of cas­cades of torched meringue and sea­sonal flow­ers. They’re not cheap but they look like works of art and can be made large enough to feed 49 of your other cake-lov­ing friends.
