Holey molars, Batman! Brisbane's 1st dessert festival
Holey molars, Batman! Brisbane is heading for the biggest sugar coma ever when all the best elements of a laneway festival and a dessert bar are deliciously combined for one day only - Saturday 29 October. The Sugar Market will be Brisbane's first ever festival dedicated to all things sweet, gooey, chocolatey, sugary, fudgey... I think you get the drift.

Aiden Street Laneway, just behind The Wickham in Fortitude Valley, is the venue for this festival that will be choc-full of everything delectable and drool-worthy. Some of Brisbane's finest purveyors of sweet treats will be on hand to tempt you from 11am to 5pm, so get your friends together for a day of sampling goods from the most important food groups; chocolate, caramel, candy, cake and ice cream.

Fancy some lollies from the Swedish Candy Bar, cupcakes from EJ's Delights, or the goodness of Old Style Fudge and Coconut Ice? How about salted caramel chocolate balls from Chokola'j or a sizzling brownie from Southside Bistro? Enough already, I'm in! And vegans and vegetarians will not be left out at this inclusive festival. They'll be catered for by a number of providers including Nutri Hitt.

"And what's the price of all this deliciousness?", I hear you ask. For a gold coin entry you will have access to a cornucopia of desserts to die for.

You've got to admit it, this will be a great way to spend a spring afternoon in Brisbane.
