Sydney Trotting - Pastries & Cakes

One thing that i found really awesome about Sydney is the wide variety of Pastries and Cakes shops. From the famous Lindt chocolate makers to the french cafes they all look irresistible. Just passing by their shops, it made me feel like I was 5 years old again; which made me want to grab everything on display...

On the first day we had a chance to try the Lindt Cafe at Darling Habour, the place was packed so it had to be pretty good.The first thing i saw when i came in here was the Macaroons, the nicely arranged and colourful arrangements caught my eyes, and I couldn't resist .I just had to try the macaroons there and... it was superb, the crisp of the macaroon cracks in your mouth and the cold sweet filling was just a Killer!

Location: 104-105 Cockle Bay Wharf Darling Harbour, Sydney

La Renaissance's Courtyard


We also tried this small french cafe at the Rocks which YM introduced, called La Renaissance Café Patisserie. Slightly hidden from the main area, with its cosy Parisian style courtyart, I felt like I was in Europe. I paid $9 for a small cake, that one could possibly gobble in one bite, but I couldn't resist; just look at it; Yes I'm a sucker for colourful things. Once we cut into this tiny work of art, we discovered the many layers and taste to this one cake, which blended really well. As they say good things comes in small packages.

Location: 47 Argyle Street The Rocks Sydney NSW

I love pastry shops, but often times they look a lot better than they taste.

They help to build the imagination of the child and make for wonderful past
times that work the brain and the creative faculties.
With all of the technological advances made by toy makers and
manufacturers, the word "toy" means something completely different than it did to the past
generations. Lego has responded by making several kits so
that all these fans can build till their hearts are content.

Finally, replace the bag and clean or replace the now dirty exhaust filter.
And while they are extremely efficient machines that clean
large areas in record time, they are also easy to operate for that spilled ashtray or other
debris that needs to be picked up quickly. It is
also important that you should consider its form.
