For exquisite and extravagant cakes
Strawberry & apple walnut crumble tart
The spring menu at Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio is as exquisite and extravagant as always. It offers a range of beautifully crafted cakes straight from the imagination of Darren Purchese. You may have heard of the very creative Darren who appeared as guest chef on Masterchef a couple of times before. His cakes are a must-try if you're in South Yarra. Even if you're not, it is still worth a trip there. I was recently in Melbourne for a holiday and decided to take the train to South Yarra especially to visit this much talked about cake shop.
Mango lychee & lime cheesecake
Its spring menu is currently available with offerings such as strawberry & apple walnut crumble tart, chocolate & mandarin salted caramel cake, mango lychee & lime cheesecake, and soursop strawberry & lime cake. Gluten and nut free cakes are also available. You can purchase either single portions (for $10 each) or large 18cm, 24cm and 30cm round cakes (starting from $55). Do be aware though that pre-orders are recommended for those larger cakes.
