You'll find Christopher's Cake Shop located in the bustling Royal Randwick Shopping centre. People of all ages come to Christopher's for one thing: a sugar rush. They are one of Australia's oldest cake shops, operating since 1955, so it's no surprise they really know their cakes.
You'll be dazzled by the delectable offerings there; they have various types of baklava pastries swimming in sugar syrup, tantalising cakes of varying size and flavours, cookies and biscuits to make your heart crumble. When it comes to the cakes (pictured), they make them in four different sizes ranging from $40-$55, which is convenient. The Salted Caramel is a must try and the Red Velvet is always popular. If you are after something a little less rich, they sell delightful tea cakes in various flavours as well. You can't go wrong with the orange and poppy seed.
If you are in the mood for a little cake and coffee Christopher's is a great spot to bring a friend for afternoon tea. They have quaint seating where you can sit, enjoy your treat and people watch. Try the traditional custard tart ($3.50) or the crunchy, sweet Thaktila ($1.90) for something more exotic.
For those with a wedding in their sights, why not try something different and do it like the French? Christopher's sell stunning 80 piece Croquembouches for $205. Choose between chocolate and caramel. For those who don't know, they are like a tower of sweet filled profiteroles. Yum.
The place is actually very reasonably priced, with your average baklava tray (pictured) selling for $22.50. In fact, they serve loads of different sweets by the tray and they all come in 3 different sizes. It's a great place to stop off on your way to a party or gathering; everyone loves the dessert bringer.
They're open 7 days and staff are always friendly and helpful. So why not get down to Christopher's Cake Shop and indulge your sweet tooth?
