Black Star Pastry: Cakes and Coffee with Ginger Ninja, Newtown (17 Oct 2009)

277 Australia Street, Newtown NSW 2042

Cheeky Ginger Ninja

Another visit to the this tiny and popular cafe gives me a chance to try the cakes I missed out last time including a cheeky Ginger Ninja — so cute and has a noticeable amount of ginger taste inside. The Strawberry Crumble is as good as last time and the intriguing Lemon Meringue with Basil Jelly has real fresh tasting basil leaves inside — I love the way it's been constructed and shaped. The small Canelli is thankfully more moist than I was expecting.
