Sweetness The Patisserie

Print Friendly

For those of you who have only ever eaten marshmallows by Pascall (those packet ones you find in the supermarket), you’ll be blown away by the gourmet marshmallows at Sweetness. I’ve been lucky enough to have tasted them several times, at various food festivals and having received them as a birthday present a few years back. But it was only recently that I visited the store…
So here’s some eye candy!

Sweetness The Patisserie, Epping, Sydney - display

The store is absolutely gorgeous like a fantasy patisserie.
Mountains of shortbreads, florentines and rocky road glow through glass cloches. Marshmallows of all flavours and colours are neatly packaged and piled into mammoth bowls.

Provencal style tables and bookshelves hold even more delectable morsels.

Treats on offer include pate de fruits, which are divine jellies in scrumptious flavours like raspberry, guava, lychee rose, pear and blood orange.
There are also mini macarons, shortbreads (love the sound of the kaffir lime and pistachio shortbread!), chocolate bars, spiced pecans, English toffee and so much more!

The large open kitchen allows you to watch a team of baking extraordinaires at work. It’s a reminder that everything here is handmade and fresh.

Marshmallows though, are Sweetness’ signature indulgence. These fresh, luscious pillows are made with fruit purees, juices, oils and zests, freshly brewed espresso, pure extracts, vanilla beans and rose water.
Let me assure you, you can really taste the difference!
There are thirty flavours ranging from passionfruit (my personal favourite) to maple & lime. Others you’ll love include aniseed, lime & coconut, gingerbread, maple & lime, sour cherry, toasted coconut, brown sugar & cinnamon, pineapple and lavender.

Yeh, I bought the $16 bag all for myself. But of course, they’d also make great gifts :)
