Designer Delights

4/158 Pacific Highway Charlestown NSW 2290 Visit Designer Delights (02) 4920 6400

Designer Delights is a café and patisserie in Charlestown who encourage originality in the designs of each cake. However, there is one design that just cannot be overlooked. The giant cup cake. It is exactly what you think it is, a cupcake not in a one or two bite size, but the size of a normal cake or a medium sized head. It is amazing and tastes as good as it looks.

Queen of Tarts

34J Vincent Street Cessnock, NSW, 2325. Visit Queen of Tarts (02) 49 916 517

The Queen of Tarts patisserie is closer to the Hunter Valley than the Newcastle CBD, but don’t be deterred by a little drive. If the Hunter Valley is good enough for Oprah, it’s good enough for us, right? Aside from that, the Queen of Tarts is a fantastic name. Who can resist a Lewis Carroll pun? No one, that’s who. Especially when it is referring to delicious baked goods. As implied by the regal namesake, The Queen of Tarts specialises in elegant and innovative designs for any cupcake required celebrations.
