PSA: Spread The Love With Love-Heart Shaped Strawberry And Watermelon Cakes From Black Star Pastry

Cool Sh*t, Eat, Melbourne, Sydney / 22 January 2021

The world’s most Instagrammable cake is getting a fresh new look.

After the year we’ve all had, we do with a sugary dose of good news. Whether you’re loved up and celebrating with your date or catching up with your besties for a Galentine’s Day celebration, we’ve found the limited-edition cake you need to know about.

Black Star Pastry’s Strawberry and Watermelon cake needs no introduction. For over a decade, this sweet yet refreshing cake has been captured by thousands of avid sweet tooths across Australia and beyond. And there’s a good reason for it: it’s layered with almond dacquoise, rose-scented cream, and watermelon, and topped with strawberries, pistachios, and dried rose petals; it was made to represent the flavours of romance.

In fact, over one million slices have been sold since it was launched in Sydney in 2008. Originally, it was created as a wedding cake for a happy bride and groom. But now, this mix is a staple on the Black Star Pastry menu year-round.

But with Valentine’s Day less than a month away, the team from Black Star wanted to do something extra special in 2021. If you’re looking to spoil someone in your life, you’re in luck.

Black Star Pastry has just announced they are creating a series of limited-edition heart-shaped Strawberry and Watermelon cakes in honour of February 14th. But you’d better get your order in quick as these cakes are expected to sell out past.

This Valentine’s Day, you can order a heart-shaped Strawberry and Watermelon online for $40 (with pre-orders open now) for collection from their Sydney or Melbournes stores between February 12th and 14th. Ready to order? Head to Black Star Pastry’s website to get your Valentine’s Day cake sorted.
