Ministry of Cakes.
Ministry of Cakes opened on Sydney Road last year, and it’s an enticing patisserie that specialises in Greek and French inspired sweets, and pastries. It’s mouth-watering not only because of the stunning looking delights under the glass cabinets, but the aroma of freshly baked pastries and cupcakes utterly alluring. All desserts are made on premises using quality ingredients, and owner Harry is also a cake specialist, so he’s also busy designing and decorating custom made wedding and special occasion cakes.
A sample of their offerings includes Eclairs, Macarons, Tarts, Galaktoboureko (layers of golden crispy filo filled with homemade custard and bathed in syrup), Ek Mek (crunchy kataifi filo filled with fresh custard and thickened cream, and walnuts sprinkled on top), Baklava, and Kataifi (Nutty centred rolls), Kok (Sandwiched cake filled with cream and glazed in chocolate).
They serve both espresso from a Matte Black La Marzocco GB5, and Greek coffee made the traditional way (not for the faint hearted!).
