Before I write about my trip to Melbourne last weekend, I have to show you some pretty pictures of the cakes at Bacco Wine Bar Pasticceria @ Chifley Tower. You see, after much urging and reminding, J finally made the trip to Chifley Tower check the place out for me (i.e. buy me some cakes). It could've been a year since I first mentioned it to J and well, the week prior to him going there , all signs were pointing to Bacco Pasticceria - I was reading about it in Good Living, reading about it in blogs, a friend mentioned it in passing, I think J got the point.
J carried the box on the bus home.
Inside the box! Look at all the pretty colours! All cakes were surprisingly intact (I say this because J has a habit of swinging cake boxes around). The only cake that needed a little bit of prettying up was the chocolate mousse with the meringue sticks (I wasn't a big fan of the meringue sticks - my teeth were squirming a little at how sweet they were).
My favourite had to be the pink macaron (front) followed by the chestnut ricotta cheesecake (back). I daresay this macaron was better than any I've had in the past (including Zumbo's)
If only I worked down Chifley Tower end of the city and could visit this place everyday! Apparently they change their cake selection regularly (I love it when cake shops do that - If I were to even open up a cake shop, I would have a constantly changing menu of cakes; how exciting is it to find a new piece of cake to try!) Anyway, I guess I'll just have to rely on J and push him to come here a bit more.
