Black Star Pastry’s new cake café is Sydney’s answer to Willy Wonka.
From the Instagram worthy Strawberry Watermelon Cake to the Night Noodle Market’s Mango Cake. It seems that everything Black Star Pastry touches turns into social media gold. How does owner Christopher Thé do it?
Like Willy Wonka and his chocolate, for years’ cake lovers have been bewildered by the inventive flavours and visual beauty of Black Star Pastry’s creations. However, Black Star Pastry’s headquarters are now open to the public!
The cake makers have transported their HQ to Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter. Although the new venue will be serving up Black Star’s most loved works of foodie art, the cafe also will give sweet toothes a greater insight into the patisserie’s creative process.
From the cracking of eggs to the delicate application of icing, Black Star’s HQ is set to showcase the hand-made craftsmanship that goes into creating the perfect dessert. But this is no ordinary bakery. Fitted with an $18,000 egg-cracking machine, cafe goers can look on in wonder at the high-tech kitchen encased behind a large glass facade. After working up a hunger, you will then be able to dine on the authentic, yet thoroughly modern, Black Star Pastry creations in the 500 square metre transparent cafe.
In 2008 Christopher Thé opened the first Black Star Pastry in the trendy heart of Newtown. It didn’t take long for the boutique patisseries to become a local institution. Tucked away behind the Town Hall, it built a reputation as a bakery with a difference. From sweet to savoury, everything is made and baked with handmade precision and love.
Since then, Black Star has slowly grown to conquer the foodie scene, opening two additional stores in Rosebery and the CBD. Earlier this year Thé’s hot cross bun was even named as the best in the city!
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory might have been fiction, but prepare yourself for a real life Willy Wonka fantasy at the new Black Star Pastry Moore Park Cafe.
