Good Times Milk Bar x Black Star Pastry
Sydney's cake maestros are headed Bayside for a sweet three-day appearance.
News of an extended lockdown might have left a bitter taste in your mouth, but here's something to help sweeten the deal: two of your culinary favourites are joining forces for one mouthwatering partnership this weekend.
From Friday, July 23–Sunday, July 25, Sydney-born cake maestros Black Star Pastry are landing at Bentleigh's Good Times Milk Bar to sling some of their most-loved creations from a special pop-up window. Bayside-based sweet tooths — and anyone else within a five-kilometre radius — will be able to get their mitts on a selection of Black Star signatures, including the Insta-famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake, the multi-layered Chocolate Mirage and the Raspberry Lychee Cake. Also making an appearance is the elaborate Japanese Forest cake, sporting layers of umeshu-infused cream, hojicha (roasted green tea) sponge and confit ume fruit.
Single-serve slices will be going for $10 a pop, available until sold out each day. Pre-orders for these are available online, along with pre-orders for larger portions of the Strawberry Watermelon Cake (to serve four, six or ten people). And of course, Good Times will have the other element of your coffee-and-cake session sorted, pouring its usual lineup of caffeinated treats.
