Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With These Instaworthy Desserts

We’re not scared of treating ourselves at The Fold, and something sweet, delicious and super-pretty is always a tad hard for us to say no to [especially around 3pm when a little sugar high certainly doesn’t go astray].

And when you have something delicious AND pretty, you just HAVE to Insta it, right? Well, here’s our pick of places to head in the Illawarra for treats that look as good as they taste!

Parfait Patisserie, Kiama

Best thing about individual cakes? No sharing [oh, and normally you can fit the whole thing in your mouth in one go].

Steamers Bar and Grill, Wollongong

This is what we like to call entrée, main and dessert.

Two Sisters Garage, Bulli

Almond croissants are quite simply…..life.

Centrepoint Pizza, Kiama

While we can’t travel to Italy at the moment, we may as well fool our tastebuds into thinking we’re there with some Sicilian Cannoli!

Brown Sugar Espresso, Mangerton

Because sometimes it’s just too hard to choose…..order the lot.

Massimo Papa, Fairy Meadow

More cannoli because as Alfred Einstein said, “E=MC squared and you can never have too much cannoli.” That guy was smart.

Millers Local Bakehouse, Wollongong

It might be the tanginess of the lemon curd, or the soft folds of lemon meringue or the deliciousness of the pastry….we’re not sure what it is about a lemon meringue tart but it’s deffo one of our faves.

Sea Swell Café, Warilla

All so pretty. All so dainty. And all so healthy. Delicious gluten free and vegan treats at Sea Swell Café.

Austi Beach Café, Austinmer

So shiny and pretty…it almost looks to good to eat. Almost…..

Gerringong Bakery, Gerringong

If you pop fruit on it, then it’s pretty much fruit salad, right? [just with a tad more sweet deliciousness underneath].

Lettuce B. Frank Wholefoods Café, Wollongong

It’s home made and it’s hummingbird cake – a totally delicious combo!

Quay Canteen, Wollongong

Look at all these guys hanging out together? Now, THIS is a party we’d like to be invited to!

Two Mountains Merchants, Thirroul

So, how do you make cheesecake even better? Add Nutella, baby!

Berry Donut Van, Berry

Now, that’s what WE call a balanced diet – donuts AND ice cream!

Naturally Tasty, Shell Cove

All the good stuff right there….and check out what’s on the tray!

The Patisserie, Oak Flats

Choux au Craquelin:: That’s French for crack-a-lackin’ tasty, we say! Salted caramel crème patissiere with Chantilly cream inside delicious choux pastry. Heyyyyyyyyyy……..over here!

Bulli Beach Café, Bulli

We’re such suckers for a lemon meringue tart.

Dashin Donuts, Shellharbour

It’s like donuts with their party dresses on, right?

Fat Cat, Wollongong

Cos that’s what friands are for………[did you sing it?].

The Garden, Berry

Just because it’s gluten free, doesn’t mean it’s taste-free [and awfully pur-ty!].

The Garden, Berry
