I cannot begin to describe how excited I was to discover a gorgeous patisserie in my very own suburb. Sweetness the Patisserie was founded by Gena Karpf. While studying for her Diplome de Patisserie (Honours) at Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney, she opened her store in Epping as a place to sell her delicate handmade sweets.
She specialises in handmade confectionary including honeycomb, coconut ice, marshmallows, nougat, fudge and gummy lollies as well as baked goods like slices, tarts, biscuits, macarons and more.
I popped by last weekend to treat myself to some goodies and asked if I could take a couple of photos for the blog. I had a lot of trouble deciding what to buy but I ended up taking home some mini chocolate swirl shortbread biscuits which I enjoyed over a cup of Green Rose tea on my balcony.
You can also find Sweetness at many of Sydney's food and produce markets. Click here for all locations. They also cater for special events and parties.
