Sweet dreams are made of these

The perfect end notes to a Chinatown meal out, this tiny little place that sits a maximum of about 4-6 people has the most beautiful sculptured cakes I can recall in an area typically saturated with Bread Top and it’s clones.  Strawberry mousse fillings, matcha cheescake and coconut passionfruit combinations chosen were not only aesthetically enticing they were flawless in taste and it has to be said, as one of the only foodies who is not a fan of matcha, definitely a fan of this!

Cold Rock: A smashing success!

It’s so simple and a no brainer and you wonder why we havent thought to do this with all ice cream sooner.  You simply choose your flavour of ice cream (it’s always a difficult choice between butterscotch, cookies and cream and all the usual standard flavours), choose your cone or tub, and choose your add-ons (you can see in this pic but its filled with Flake, Tim Tams, Peanut Butter puffs and Nerds).   All of that is smashed together and scopped into your tub or cone!  Impossible not to enjoy!
