This day is unfortunately also the day I made reservations at Oyster little Bourke for the Express Lunch thing, part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival. But this time, I won't be talking about that lunch, I'll blog about it another time.
We finished shopping way ahead of time. I had more than 1 hour to kill before lunch. A sweet treat and a good cup of coffee is in order to lift my mood a little bit. I always wanted to try Sweet Source in Carlton North, a little sidetracked, but it was so worth the trip.
Their coffee is quite good, perfectly roasted with perfect amount of milk and a caramelly after taste. After a long prowling at their fabulous array of cakes and desserts, I gave in for the cupcakes and raspberry linzer torte. Soft vanilla cupcake with generous amount of vanilla frosting... yummm. If you like Vanilla as much as I do, you will absolutely love this cupcake. You can see the specks of vanilla beans in the frosting. I end up taking the linzer torte for takeaway, and had it with my morning tea the next day while reading Dorie Greenspan's Paris Sweets. Perfection!
