Chester Street Bakery - Newstead

Having had a rather salty dinner at Les Bubbles, my companion and I wanted to find something sugary to balance out our palate. With that in mind and craving cake, we headed to Chester Street to grab dessert.

At the entrance to the store, we were greeted by numerous cabinets filled with delectable cakes. It was quite a hard decision to choose which cake to get, as they were all so cheery and colourful (but for $10 per slice, very expensive too).

In the end, we settled on two servings of cake, being the Oreo and Kitkat cake, and the M&Ms cheesecake. We also got one Strawberry Doughnut Milkshake.

The M&M cheese cake was actually very rich and sweet. Far more richer than we had expected. The colours of the M&Ms were very aesthetically pleasing, and the sprinkles reminded us of our childhood. The base was crumbly and chocolatey but we still had to share the cake to be able to finish it as it was so rich. 

We expected the Kitkat Oreo Cake to be even richer, but in fact it was a lot less sweet and well textured than the M&Ms cheesecake. Despite how suggary it looks, it was actually just chocolatey and the inside had a delightfully mousse texture which we thorougly enjoyed. I pulled the kitkats off the side, whilst my companion ate the oreo. We were both glad to see that they were still very crunchy despite extended time exposed to the moist summer air.

Between the two of us, we also shared a strawberry doughnut shake. This was rich and milky, but not sweet. In fact it had quite a bit of strawberry flavour. I enjoyed the sour lollies on top, which gave it quite a bit of contrast in taste, but what I liked best was the doughnut, which soaked up a lot of the milk shake before I consumed it.
