Black Star Pastry

The most photographed cake in Australia

All the way from Sydney, Black Star Pastry will be debuting the infamous Strawberry Watermelon Cake that people have traveled from all around the world to taste.

Fresh, light and fragrant and perfect for birthdays, weddings or just because, this has become Black Star Pastry’s signature and most requested cake. The Strawberry Watermelon Cake consists of two layers of almond dacquoise (like a meringue), rose-scented cream, watermelon, strawberries and garnished with pistachios and dried rose petals.


About Black Star Pastry and Christopher Thé 

In 2008 Christopher Thé opened his own boutique patisserie, Black Star Pastry, in Newtown, which has flourished and garnered critical praise locally and internationally. Chris is driven by a taste-up philosophy of food design, rather than appearance, and this can be experienced in every piece of deliciousness BlackStar creates.

We work the old fashioned way, handmade with love and integrity. We strive to capture the beauty contained in nature, and bring it to you with as little tinkering as possible. We source our own produce from market so that we get only the best quality and are in tune with the seasons. We will not use flavourings, dyes or anything unnatural in our food. We want you to taste immediacy, freshness and life. BlackStar has become famous for its Strawberry Watermelon Cake – the most photographed cake of Australia (if not the world) – but regularly releases new savoury and sweet specials. Our slow-cooked Lamb Shank and Red Wine has won multiple best pie awards.
