After a bit of umming and ahhing over which sweet treats to pick, we agreed on the carrot cake, as well as a hazelnut praline cake. Both choices were delightful, and quite different from the kind of cakes you can get elsewhere. Celene thinks it's in the kind of flour they use - very fine quality ingredients that elevates the cake to another level.
I haven't found a place in Melbourne with cakes that blows my socks off yet - would love to hear recommendations! :)
