Jillian's Cakery on Elizabeth Street in Sydney's trendy Surry Hills is a haven of vintage cakes. Seriously this place will give you strong primary school bake sale vibes and remind you of your grandmother's kitchen—cue nostalgia and drooling. Jillian Butler quit her corporate day job to pursue her passion for baking and we couldn't be happier that she did because her cakes and other sweet treats are just what the doctor ordered. Jillian's Cakery offers a serene sanctuary where it's the norm to while away an afternoon sipping on coffee, tucking into delicious slices of cake and being treated like princes and princesses with the great service.
We'd also like to take this opportunity to tell you that her South American cakes are on point. Order the dulche de leche cake.
A variety of favourite cakes and treats are crafted each day and can be bought by the slice or for your next event, corporate function or special occasion. Keep updated with the 'cake of the week', which is always a winner. One favourite is Bunny's carrot cake, chock full of carrots and smothered in cream cheese icing (delish). We also can't go past the the sticky date cake made using sweet Califonia Medjool dates with their divine caramelly flavour, all served hot with dripping butterscotch sauce across the plate... mhmm.
