We were recently asked why we have been sharing Mauritian treats at such a competitive price to fellow Mauritians in Australia. You can get our Napolitaines for only $1 each and Tartes Banane under $2 each. On top of this, delivery fees are waived for a large radius in South Eastern suburbs. Of course, these prices are more expensive compared to Mauritius but they are definitely more accessible compared to other artisanal sweets in Australia. The answer to this question is in fact one of the main reasons why we wanted to get into this business.
Nothing says party like a perfect cake! Sometimes one of our simple pre-designed cakes will do, but sometimes you already have a specific design in mind. Whatever you are after, The Whisktakers team can help make your dream cake come true.
Foodies, on your marks! Ready, set, go!
Not only is today International Burger Day, but it is also the opening day of Food Service Australia. The show is a yearly event where food merchants, artisan patissiers, decorated Michelin star chefs and foodies gather around over 3 days. This year, Melbourne was lucky enough to welcome the crowd at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton. You can say that it is the mecca for all hospitality traders and food enthusiasts and this is why we absolutely have to blog about it.
At The Whisktakers, we do enjoy anything with a shortcrust pastry, be it savoury or sweet, hot or cold, big or small – we love them all. Shortcrust pastry is such a versatile and delicious pastry type. Essentially it is made by rubbing together plain flour and butter to create a crumbly mixture. Depending on the texture you’re looking for, you can then either add sugar, salt, almond meal, water or eggs.
We have all had that crazy craving for banana bread (or banana pie) and quickly realised that the bananas in-store are not ripe enough. Surely you can wait another long week and wait for the fruit to ripen slowly but let's face it, just like me, you want that banana bread RIGHT NOW!
