It is well and truly holiday season and as things heat up (literally and figuratively), Black Star Pastry has come in with the ultimate way to elevate your Christmas gathering. Enter the brand-new White Strawberry Watermelon Cake — a limited-edition Christmas version of its famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake aka the "world's most Instagrammed cake".

The cake is crowned with white strawberries — rare variants originally from Japan — known as 'hatsukoi no kaori' or 'scent of first love', which have limited availability in Australia. Also included: layers of fresh watermelon and almond dacquoise enveloped in a rose- and strawberry-scented cream, then topped with white strawberries, pink cream, hand-carved snowflakes and a dusting of sweet snow — the closest thing we'll get to a white Christmas Down Under.

The four-portion White Strawberry Watermelon Cake, priced at $80, is currently available for preorder. You'll want to get in quick, as this baby is available in strictly limited numbers due to the elusive nature of the white strawberry. Once ordered, collection will be available on Saturday, December 23–Sunday, December 24.

In its 2023 Christmas range, Black Star Pastry is also offering a Gingerbread Chiffon Cake ($70). This take on the classic chiffon includes a gingerbread-spiced base, molasses buttercream layers, a white chocolate and lemon drizzle, then mini ginger ninjas and handmade white and strawberry chocolate candy canes on top. It serves 12 portions, with pre-orders are available now — as is collection, which will end on Sunday, December 24.

For those looking to grab a slice of the festive action, individual slices of the Gingerbread Chiffon Cake are available in Sydney's Rosebery and Chatswood stores, as well as Melbourne's St Kilda store.

So, if you're in Sydney or Melbourne this holiday season, why not treat yourself? After all, what's Christmas without a little indulgence?

Head to the Black Star Pastry website to order the White Strawberry Watermelon Cake and the Gingerbread Chiffon Cake before Sunday, December 24.
