Guys, you may want to take a seat for this one—Sydney has just scored an entire festival dedicated to dessert and we’re struggling to control ourselves RN. It’s all happening at the Shangri-La Hotel Sydney, so you know it’ll be delicious and luxe (yep, this one will be epic).
Of course, the star of the show is the hotel’s resident sweet genius, Anna Polivou, who’ll be dishing up two new desserts especially for the event—including Popping Caramel, which combines milk chocolate, popping crunch and passionfruit caramel, and the Matcha Match, which blends matcha with crunchy cornflakes and strawberry.
Other honourable mentions go to a few of our fave Sydney food legends: Butter (fried chicken is life), MakMak Macarons, Uncle Tetsu, Koi Dessert Bar, and literally so much more. For entertainment, expect graffiti artists, magicians (yes really), live DJ sets from DJ Brown Rice, plus a dessert eating competition and arcade games. Game on.
Tickets are $85 (unless you spring for the VIP option), and it’ll include eight tokens to redeem at any stall that’s calling your name. Book your spot here.
