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.

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!

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.

  • I love Sweetness’ marshmallows! For the flavours, their texture and the girly pastel colours. Really, once you’ve tried these then your usual packet marshmallows just don’t make the grade.

  • Ever since having freshly made marshmallows, I can’t go back to those store bought ones. I still haven’t been able to try Sweetness’ marshmallows but they look so devine. Wow 30 flavours! That’s impressive!

    Everything looks oh so pretty! Definitely want to check this place out!

  • I adore the provencal look of this place. Perfectly matches the desserts. Those marshmallows look amazing 🙂

  • Wow, I knew they did marshmallows as I’ve been given them as a gift, but I had no idea the shop was so epic and filled with other goodies.

    I used to work in Epping and when Sweetness opened, lunch time was never the same again. I would make a stop at Sweetness after getting lunch – almost everyday..and the waitline expanded with time! haha the stuff there is very good. my all time fav is their English Toffee (I could eat bags of it)!

  • Uao! I like marshmallow, beatiful photo! Bye from Italy.
