The fact that you can actually dig into desserts that glow in the dark is the ultimate game changer in the foodie world.
Basically, for 23 nights during Vivid Sydney, Darling Square will be home to a black cube installation by Motti & Smith and Belle Laide Events, led by the dessert kings at Gelato Messina. The multisensory and illuminated bar will feature collabs with DOPA, Edition Coffee Roasters and Bubble Nini who will all create a rotating menu of glow-in-the-dark desserts (with four available each night during throughout the festival of light).
On the menu you can expect a luminescent “Dr Evil’s Magic Mushroom Cake” and a three-layer dulce de leche gelato cake with milk sponge, cream and glow-in-the-dark warm strawberry and roasted cinnamon anglaise.
You’ll also be able to knock back glowing bubble tea which uses Messina’s own jersey milk infused with Taiwanese Sun Moon Lake black tea, handmade glow-in-the-dark strawberry pearls made daily by Bubble Nini in-house and herbal jellies.
